Procrastination Destination: Designs and Inventions to Improve Your Lifestyle + Wild and Whacky Christmas Gift Ideas

sandbox_1_800

It’s the Holiday Season, and with the joyousness of holiday cheer comes the crushing doom of finals week. But don’t worry, Wesleying is here to help. While many of you watch Arrow on Netflix instead of studying for that Comparative Political Astronomy exam, and others just keep putting off that essay about Whippets in Hats  to go people-watch at The Nest, only a  few of you will actually accomplish something during your procrastination time. But with today’s episode of Procrastination Destination, your procrastination is guaranteed to end in some kind of tears success. Whether you find a new dorm room design idea, or a holiday gift for your least-favorite sibling/most-cherished pet (or yourself; Merry Christmas to Me!), you will accomplish something while perusing through these decór-licious websites. Don’t want to buy anything you see? No worries, it’s still probably the coolest doohickey or thingamabob you’ve seen all day. And some of these room designs? Paint me purple and call me a grape, because I would… wine.. for a chance to hang out in one of these houses.

Anyway, I hope some of these things actually inspire you to study for finals, because if your bank account looks like mine, you won’t be able to buy anything featured here unless you get a cushy job after graduating… which won’t happen if you fail Basic Mermaid Anatomy.

Yanko Design: Designs to Blow your Socks off

Ok, the first time I went to Yanko Design, I think I stumbled upon it back when stumbleupon was a thing. Basically, here are all the newest things that inventors and designers  have put their time and money into, and for the most part it walks a fine line of awesome and out-there. I recommend, from the main page, clicking on the “Random Design” link on the right hand side of the screen.

Just to get you interested, I’ve made a list of a few of my favorite items discovered on Yanko Design. Check it out, along with more lists (yay, it’s just like Buzzfeed!), after the jump.
