    1. A pastel mug warmer that regulates the temperature of your coffee or tea so you can nurse your drink for hours without sipping an ice-cold beverage *and* looks good while doing it.

    Promising review: "I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot. I like it so much I ordered a second one for another part of the house." —hottytoddy

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in six colors).

    2. An acrylic four-piece desk organizer you ~clearly~ need so you have a place to put all the assorted office supplies you've accumulated. Plus, because this organizer is clear, it won't clutter up your space.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful desk organizer. I love that the pieces are sturdy and well made. It is very functional and reduced the clutter around the desk." —Mamta

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in clear and gold).

    3. Or a rose gold mesh style with five compartments, a mini sliding drawer, and a slot big enough to hold a notebook in the back, so you don't have to fumble around looking for a pen and paper when your boss asks if you're taking notes during your team meeting.

    Promising review: "This rose gold organizer is super cute and convenient! I can keep all my paper clips, pencils and markers all in one place. I like to write letters to family and friends and this organizer makes writing even more fun!" —MediaBoxEnt

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97 (available in five colors).

    4. A wireless mouse that comes in so many different colors, you can pick one that fits your vibe, because sometimes it's the little things that get you through your workday, such as having a cute mouse.

    reviewer image of a small mouse in mint green

    Promising review: "I got this mouse, and it is lovely! It is very elegant, just what I was looking for to brighten up my old black laptop! My old wireless mouse had stopped working, and this is a great upgrade. The design is ergonomic, your hand rests in a natural, neutral position rather than in a claw, since it is flat and smooth. The scroll wheel is a ball but only goes up and down, not side to side, which is fine for my purposes. The click still audible, but very very soft, and I think it will be good for the library where sometimes a regular mouse clicking sounds too loud. I like that it has an on/off button for when it is not in use and inside the laptop bag. I thought it was so pretty that I am going to buy a second one in white and gold to match my desktop." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 25 colors).

    5. And a tie-dye mousepad so you're able to use your wireless mouse on your desk and add some color to the space at the same time.

    Promising review: "I got this mousepad in the tie-dye color for myself, a friend, and one for work/the office. The color is beautiful, the material/fabric is soft and smooth, and feels nice under the mouse. I highly recommend it!" —kwasy

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $9 (originally $12.95; available in four styles).

    6. A storm cloud weather predictor with crystals inside that react to different weather conditions, so not only will it look really nice sitting on your desk, but it will also keep you updated on what's happening outside, so you know if you can take that lunch break walk or not.

    Get it from Firebox for $43.

    7. A patterned lap desk for anyone who might not have room for an actual desk. This baby will transform your couch (or even your bed) into a workplace where you can knock out your to-do list.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in pink and white).

    10. A CovoBox made to look like a stack of books, but it's actually hollow on the inside, so you can use it to cover the mess of cords that you have in your office. Say goodbye to clutter and hello to beautiful (and functional) decor.

This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus, it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. And the customer service was great and responsive.

    13. A desk lamp designed with a wireless charging pad in the base, which means you're basically getting two practical items in one — a pretty desk lamp and a way to charge your phone during the day. It's the multiple functions while still being chic for me.

    16. A set of gold cable organizers for organizing all the cords on your desk so you don't have to spend 10 minutes fishing out your computer charging cord that fell behind your desk...again. Plus, this gold style won't stick out like a sore thumb among the other thing on your desk.

    BTW — this shop is a small biz based out of Phoenix, AZ!

    I bought this coaster for myself back around the holidays after someone on the team shared the shop with me. I was obsessed with the coaster and all the fun pop-culture references. I've used it every day since buying it, and it's held up great. It holds all kinds of drinks, and the lip ensures that no condensation gets anywhere near my laptop. I picked this quote because it's from one of my fave TSwift songs, but the shop also has quotes from Schitt's Creek, Bravo, Sex and The City, or an option where you can customize it with whatever quote you want.

    Get it from Salut Design Shop on Etsy for $18 (available in three shapes).
