Let's be real: Finding meaningful and personal gifts is hard. The key to being the ultimate gift giver is to do a little buying and a little DIYing, which is why we teamed up with Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and PBteen to put together a gift guide for everyone on your list.
Pottery Barn is the home for all things beautiful and thanks to Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen, it's easy to find gifts for anyone, at any age. And because gifting should never be stressful, each DIY on our list is super easy and quick to do. Swipe down to see our top 10 picks!
8. Faux-Fur Superstudy Lapdesk ($59) + DIY Pom Pom Pencils: In our opinion, the best work happens wherever you are most creative and comfortable, so the lapdesk is the ultimate solution to turn a couch, bed or floor into a cool work space. This one is particularly awesome because it's basically half pillow, half desk. DIY some colorful pom poms to glue on top of pencils for the ultimate study-friendly gift.
9. Faux Fur Long Robe ($99), Nail Dryer ($25) + DIY Spa Kit: We all know self-care is super important, so why not give someone a homemade spa kit filled with the essentials: bath bombs, candles, bath salts, and of course, the ever-so-handy nail dryer and the fluffiest robe imaginable.
10. Northfield Solid Charcoal Carry On Spinner ($159.50) + DIY Pom Pom Tassel Luggage Tag: For your favorite jet-setter, give them a suitcase that they'll actually want. This Carry On Spinner is perfect for any college student (or anyone for that matter) traveling back home for the weekend and wants something spacious and light.
And because tassels and pom poms make everything better, be sure to DIY a quick little pom pom tassel luggage tag to attach to the suitcase.
Is a little buying and a little DIYing the secret to gift-giving? We think so!
