Let's face it, even if you LOVE your desk job, you probably don't LOVE every second of it--endless conference calls, meetings about meetings, getting cornered in the lunchroom by the close-talker, post-tuna sandwich.... But sometimes all it takes is a little pick-me-up to lighten the mood, and that's why the goddess of office supplies invented tabletop accessories that aren't just practical but also pretty and fun. I'm not afraid to admit that, more than once, sharpening my pencil in the business end of a hand-painted vintage canary has been the highlight of my workday. So, desk jockeys, this one's for you.
Alligator Stapler from Catching Fireflies, $16.95. Because it just makes sense.
