Chances are you have at least one friend who seems to have everything, which makes buying gifts for them a total nightmare. Our advice: Whenever possible, go super personalized. Enter Pillowords, a genius new company that lets you customize throw pillows with your own photos and words. The lovely-and-talented Rachel Pfeffer (you might remember her from our 30 Under 30 list) has once again teamed up with her brother Doug for this creative enterprise that Instagram junkies are sure to love.

Pillowords lets you upload your own photo or choose from a variety of stock images. Then, choose a message — it can be whatever you want (including emojis, which is pretty clutch). And, voilà! A super-special pillow will be created just for you, right in Adams Morgan, for a cool $68.
The company is a natural extension of the Pfeffer siblings’ first endeavor, Stitchtagram, which lets you emblazon your Instagram photos on pouches, totes, and more. With Pillowords, your couch can be adorned with various selfies, your best #tbt, or your favorite vacation snaps, with hashtags and witty sayings, to boot. We can't think of a better gift idea for the bestie who has it all than a throw pillow embellished with a treasured snapshot and the words "You complete me." Can you?
