    1. A USB mini fan to keep you calm, cool, and collected even when you get so frustrated that your building can't figure out how to maintain a comfortable temperature no matter what season it is. UGH.


    Promising review: "I love this fan. It’s the perfect size for my desk at work and doesn’t make noise. I’ve had it for over a year now, and it still works great." —lynnette

    Promising review: "These look very cute on my desk next to my other geeky figures. The paint job was tidy. The pearly look really helps them look more like spirits (I had initially looked for flat white, but was pleasantly surprised with this instead)." —Elizabeth Aurich

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $4.99.

    4. A sticky notepad with spots to write what you plan to accomplish every hour...because it's never a bad thing to be this detail-oriented.

    5. A dimmable touch control lamp for when you need a little extra ~flower-power~ to get through the day.


    Promising review: "I immediately bought two more because this is the cutest lamp ever. It has a USB port, and it is rechargeable. The sucker holder for the phone is awesome when I am facetiming someone, and I am also on my computer. It is very bright and the touch option lets you dim or use at the full bright level. For the money, this is a great gift. I know it says its for kids, but I use it in my office." —D. Diaz

    14. Some floppy disk coasters to ~save~ your desk from another condensation disaster.

    Promising review: "These are the coolest, nerdiest coasters ever. They look identical to real floppy disks and the vibrant colors make them that much more cool. Obviously, they're not absorbent being that they're made out of silicone, but they stay put pretty well when you move drinks on and off of them, so I don't anticipate any condensation that drips onto them getting all over the table."—Ryan Conklin
