Top 10 Items your Work Desk needs

Top 10 Items your Work Desk needs

My day job work desk is pretty boring – computer, phone, pens, folders, etc. My home desk is a bit more interesting with a mix of make-up brushes, fluffy pens, pretty note paper, a candle (not next to the note paper) and more (!) I recently revamped my desk area as part of my new year organising/spring clean and came across some nifty little desk gadgets in the process.

So if you want to make your work area more fun and appealing, check out my list of Top 10 desk items to choose from!



Are you a fan of indoor plants but don’t have room for one on your desk? Try these Oyedens12pcs/set Novelty Grass Leaf Ball Point Pen Office School Supplies pens from Amazon. Grab yourself a little pot and voila you’ve brought the beauty of the outdoors indoors!



Idesk organiser

I saw this and thought WOW! The Cyanics iStick Desktop Organizer Computer Desk Accessories with 3 Port USB Hub Cup Holder Card Reader Letter Opener Paper Holder Storage Space for Stationery Items (White) is a simple yet highly effective solution for keeping your work area neat and organized. The multi-functional hub/card-reader kit also functions as your coffee holder, pen holder, and smart/mobile phone stand (even while charging). On top of that, iDesk features slots and enough storage space for holding photos, memo notepads, and business cards. The product comes with three USB ports for reading memory cards. It even features a letter opener and copy holder service functions. What more could you want?!



Cable tidy

Have you got random wires and cables all over the place? Stick them down with these nifty 6 X Cable Drop Clips Organizer Smart Lounge Color Random By Buyinconis! Lots of different suppliers on Amazon.



Laser projection keyboard

No room for a keyboard on your desk? Why not go crazy and spend your cash on a laser projection keyboard! This pocket-sized device connects with Bluetooth to project a fixed keyboard pattern onto any surface, turning any flat space into a workspace. The motion-sense lasers also double as a mouse, detecting your hand movement as you click, double-click, or scroll. Genius!



Staple free stapler

Never refill your staple gun again or accidentally stab yourself with a rouge staple pin! The unique technology of the PLUS Japan Staple Free Stapler Blue 5 sheets, Environment-friendly attaches the sheets into one another, making it even more environment-friendly since fewer resources are consumed.



Greek flag desk organiser

I couldn’t resist throwing this desk organiser / pen holder into the mix complete with Greek flag! More available on!



Portable scanner

Need to scan a document on the go? You should try a TaoTronics Handheld Mobile Portable Document scanner 1050 DPI 1.44’TFT Colour & Mono, Color Display (For Photo, Reciepts, Books, Business Card, Passport,JPG/PDF Format Selection, Micro SD Card required but not included) Permanently archive all your documents digitally – convert your colour or black & white photos, receipts and books into digital files. Scan images with up to 1050 DPI resolution and save them directly to a SD memory card; rechargeable 700mAh lithium battery lets you bring it anywhere.




Show off your stylish stationery with a returns address embosserWith a desk embosser and address embosser plate you can make impressions into paper using a technique called blind embossing, which creates a raised image without colour (think Braille). Very stylish indeed!




Have your Mother by your side and on your work desk with this weird but very clever sensory gadget. Basically, the little Russian doll thing comes with 4 sensors which can monitor movement, temperature and more and report to the mother ship – you can track your fitness levels, protect your home from intruders and see how well you are sleeping. All of these actions can be viewed at a glance with the smartphone app and you can choose exactly how you want to be notified of what’s going on, whether that’s by push notification, text messages, sms, email, phone calls or even just simple sounds and lights on the mother device itself. The future is now!




 This cube alarm clock can tell you the time, date and temperature alternately in white LED colour on an aluminium-effect block at the click of your fingers and automatically switches off when the room is quiet, lighting up again when the alarm goes off or as a response to clicked fingers or clapped hands. Never again will you have a bright light shining in your room at night. If you need to check the time, you can just click your fingers or gently tap your bedside table and the time will appear, so you don’t have to struggle to find your smartphone in the dark anymore.


So what’s on your work desk?

    Ekaterina – these are nifty, nifty gadgets. If you only could see my desk – it’s a total mess with research books, coffee, water, piles of papers. But I WILL get some of these items – the cable tidy is perfect as is the staple-free stapler! Thank you!

    What a great list. I love the pens! That keyboard would be nice too but it might make RSI more likely for us writers!
