The sentence: "Books are gifts when they are acts of love.". The second part after the "when" is the object clause and the sentence is complex, right?

There is no 'object' in this sentence. The main clause is copular, with books as subject and gifts as a subject complement of are. The when clause is a temporal adjunct modifying the main clause (or if you belong to a more traditional grammatical sect, modifying are).
