Cool Desk Items Everyone Should Have?

Work is where you spend most of your day. So, you might as well make the best of the time. Here are some cool desk items ideas to make your working space fun. They are also great as marketing resources.

Coffee-time Mugs

Coolest Desk Items To Make Your Working

Coffee lovers look forward to enjoying a fabulous cup of coffee before, during and after coffee breaks. Personalized coffee mugs are ideal for this occasion. When others step into your office, the personalized look will say to them, “Look, but for goodness sake do not touch.”

Moody Frames

Few people remain in a constant mood. To put co-workers on guard, display frames that relay different emotional expressions.

Home-Sweet-Home Model

Since work is like home away from home, make it official. Have a mini model of the office building on a far corner of the desk. This is a motivational reminder that you are not really home, but you are making the best of where you are.

Light-work Lamp

Displaying a lamp labelled “light work” is a smart and humorous way to say to others that you specialize in light work. Everyone else must do the heavy-duty stuff.

Make-My-Day Photos

During those aggravating moments when the entire office is working on your nerves and when clients are acting up, be ready to de-stress. Pull out the funniest-looking photograph of that special spouse, significant other, adorable kid or wacky pet and have a good laugh.

Humorous Quotes-of-the-Day Flip Chart

Hard working folks need a booster every now and again. As you turn the pages of the little flip chart on the desk, you just may be turning away fatigue, frustration and all the crazy stuff that accompanies a stressful work day.

Food-shaped Artifact

Have a crafted object of your favorite food nearby. You can bet yourself anything that it will remind you of snack, breakfast, lunch and dinner. That should help you to work faster. Before you know it, you’ll be packing up to call it quits for the day.

Be-A-Clock-Watcher Pen Holder

Some people may think it’s not possible to work and watch the clock. If you are cool about it, no one but you will know. A pen or pencil holder with an attached clock at the front will be a secret between the holder and you.

Personalized Mug Warmer

To keep your coffee hot in that personalized coffee mug, you need a warmer.  It will not only keep your coffee warm, but make a very convenient addition to your cool desk items.

Having cool desk items can make your work space more enjoyable, especially if you’re like me and spend a lot of time sitting in front of the computer.  What cool desk items do you have that I have missed?

Those "Make My Day" photos are a great idea. Also, I know you can get mug warmers that just plug into your computers USB drive!

Excellent ideas! Sadly... My work space is a mess. I've ordered some nice storage units that should help sort that out. Once I get things cleaned up I can personalize my space! Can't wait!

Although I don't work at home, this is a good reminder about having some personal items on your desk to keep you focused. I have a little wobbly creature my daughter gave me that always makes me smile when he wobbles.

I like your selections for must have items, I only have about half of them. The mug warmer is a very good idea for my husband, he always has a cup with him, but sometimes gets caught up in a job and comes back to his coffee cold.
