One of the benefits of working from home, along with not having a daily commute, is that your home office can reflect your personality and design taste. Best of all, you don’t need to recreate the corporate office you left behind. Instead, add a little punch, color and interest to your workspace with these 6 home office accessories.
- Mustache Push Pins
If for some reason you can’t resist adding a moustache to magazines, postcards or pictures that cross your desk, these Mustache Push Pins are perfect for you. You may have wondered how your baby would look with a moustache or how your dog could rock a stash. Now you can stop guessing.
- Decorative Desk Caddy
Take a look at the supply holder on your desk, then look at this hand-painted metal desk caddy, then look back at your supply holder. With a caddy as colorful and well designed as this, your old holder deserves to go back to its original purpose…as a coffee mug. Not only will this colorful caddy hold and organize your supplies, it will raise your style quotient a few notches.
- Palette Tissue Case
I’m all about function, and when one product has several uses it brings me to tears. OK, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but tears and tissues go together. And if, like me, you want tissues at your fingertips, you and your desk could use the Palete Tissue Case. I’m tearing up thinking about how happy you’ll be to have tissues and supplies so close!
- Recycled Newspaper Magazine Basket
You could use an ugly plastic container to hold magazines or anything else you need to read, or you could think outside the box and add color, texture and style to your home office with these baskets made from recycled newspapers. These are perfect for the out-of-sight, out-of-mind thinker. You can keep things organized in the basket, still see them, and help the environment as well.
- Pivot Power
Think about the last time you tried to plug an oversized power cord alongside another oversized cord in a basic power strip. It wasn’t much different from trying to cram a size 10 foot into a size 9 shoe, right? (I’m speaking from experience here!) The Pivot Power surge protector that resembles a bicycle chain on steroids, solves that problem. By reconfiguring this flexible strip, you can fit plugs, not matter how large they are, into each outlet.
- GoSmart RestPad
When you’re working in front of your computer all day, your wrist can get quite a workout. I know what you’re thinking: Ugh… another gimmicky desk accessory. Not so with this soft, functional and stylish wrist rest. The GoSmart RestPad will cushion your wrist while you give your old wrist rest the boot.
