You spend a lot of time at your desk. Why not furnish it to suit your style?
While cluttering your desk with a ton of stuff is never a good idea, decorating it with the right stuff that keeps you productive and happy is important. Doing so also makes your desk both functional and fun and is a great way to keep your morale up when things aren’t going as awesome at work as you’d like.
To start things off, what desktop doesn’t need a pen. And a stylus. And an LED light. And more. Well, this geeky gadget lets you have all of that.
These come in a variety of shapes and sizes — the bullet style is my personal favorite. Cool and sleek-looking, the geek factor comes in because of the word “space” associated with the pen. That, and the fact that they write underwater. If only we could find paper that survived underwater.
