I knitted a quick gift scarf that looks a little unexciting. I was wondering if there's a way to add some beads to the finished product to give it a little something extra. Ideas?

You could always sew them on, either with the yarn you used or matching thread. Not sure if there's any other way to do it, if, like me, you are not too fond of sewing. :)

Here's what I would do since I'm too lazy to sew on individual beads...I would string some beads on either the matching yarn or invisible thread, and then duplicate stitch over the row(s) you want to add beads to.

You could also add beaded fringe, or sew on a beaded I-cord...it's hard to say without seeing the actual scarf.

How about adding a fringe with beads knotted into the strands?
