I don’t have a teen (yet), but Ethan celebrated his birthday in the weekend and at 11, his wish list was incredibly short, expensive and totally lacking in inspiration. Something along the lines of;
- Xbox One
I’m not one for buying-for-the-sake-of-buying so in order to come up with something to go under the tree (that wasn’t a bucket of cash!) I decided to create a sort-of package gift that addressed a current need.
With E off to intermediate next year (read more about that here), I’ve been meaning to tackle his desk for some time and create a functional space that he would feel motivated to sit and do his homework at – I realise this is a massive stretch but one must try! Ethan’s desk is very little, which is fine as his room is also very little. It’s an old school desk I purchased for $25 from Junk ‘n’ Disorderly and repainted a fresh white.
I needed to maximise storage on E’s desk so started my wee gift project with the banter.morph wooden crate from Warehouse Stationery and added some bits and pieces as I went.
The crate comes in a cute flat-pack and is super sturdy with plenty of room to hide all of that boy-junk that accumulates between tidying.
To finish the gift I selected a couple of different sized spiral bound notebooks, some pens and I couldn’t go past that soda bottle! Perfect for sipping on while smashing out homework! I hope lol.
TIP: Shopping one range only (rather than wandering aimlessly around the store) gave my distracted-shopping-self some focus and I had this desk-pack picked out in less then 10 minutes! The new banter.morph range at Warehouse Stationery plays on combining functional pieces with on-trend decor items in fun colour-pops, perfect for the
hard to please hard to buy for tween/teen!
I love how this wee project turned out! I only scratched the surface of what’s on offer from the new banter.morph range which is available exclusively at Warehouse Stationery. Prices start from just $3.99 so consider your stocking stuffers sorted!
