Soda/Beer can pencil holder
Look! Now keep in mind, I made this at 3 am because I couldn't sleep (which is maybe why it looks a little ghetto), and also keep in mind that a guy would probably like a beer can better, but yay! Soda/beer can pencil holder! Maybe you could do other desk stuff with beer/soda stuff - get a little cardboard box from craft store and cover it in beer/soda labels peeled off glass/plastic bottles? So easy, obviously, since I'm doing it at 3 am - just cut and the duct tape is on top to protect from sharp edges, on the bottom for aesthetic purposes. =) Inside is lined with cardboard for strength.
