Gifts to improve your home office, or something special for a work colleague; you’re sure to find something in our selections.
Gifts for the Home Office
Working from home doesn’t need to mean working at the kitchen table. A desk used exclusively for work can help you get into work mode. I like the Newport desk by Convenience Concepts. It’s just the right size for a computer and some peripherals. It also makes a handsome console table.
Comfortable and stylish, Herman Miller’s Setu office chair gives ergonomic support without looking like a machine.
Safe and Secure, The Gift of Peace of Mind
Organize all the important information about your home in one place. A home inventory log helps you keep track of purchases, warranties, insurance info. It gathers everything in one central place for easy reference.
Keep your inventory book, vital records, and other important documents safe – in a safe. This Sentry Safe is both fireproof and waterproof and is built to keep your records and valuables safe.
All Work and no Play? Give the Gift of an Executive Toy
Sometimes you just need a distraction. Taking a break from work can make you more productive, and spark creativity. I love the quality of these executive toys. They look great on a desk, and can provide a needed break of fun in the work day.
Ivan Black’s Square Wave kinetic sculpture for Atellani looks great standing still, and is mesmerizing in motion.
Set the world spinning, or at least this small part of it. David Fowler’s Vortex Dome for Physics Hack is a hypnotic and soothing ever changing skyscape. Handmade artisan quality will have you spinning this for years.
Keep it moving along. The Swinging Sticks kinetic sculpture is a double pendulum that seems to defy physics with its endless, soothing motion.
Finishing Touches – A Little Luxury for the Desktop
Sometimes it’s the little things that mean so much. A smooth writing pen, a rich leather desk pad; these are some of our favorite desktop accessories.
Protect your desk and give it some style with this leather desk mat. Dacasso’s heavy leather anchors everything on your desk, and creates an exceptional writing surface.
A great pen is a luxury all its own. Add Waterman’s legendary quality and you have a pen you won’t want to put down.
Keep your coffee at your desk piping hot with Stelton’s classic thermal carafe. Designed by Erik Magnussen in 1977, it still looks sleek and fresh today; an iconic design.
Give the Gift of Productivity
The adage goes, “Always use the right tool for the job.” I’m a big believer in using the best tool for the job too. These are our picks for great tools to help you be more productive at work.
A tactile mechanical keyboard is a joy to use. Das Keyboard makes some of the best. I like the tactile clicky one here that uses Cherry’s famous MX Blue switches, but they are available in softly tactile versions too.
For anyone that does design work, uses photoshop, or draws on the computer a graphics tablet will make that work even easier. The Wacom Intuos Pro has thousands of levels of pressure sensitivity and programmable buttons. I use mine so often that it’s replaced the mouse on my computer also.
Music soothes the savage beast. It also helps me through the work day. Upgrade your computer’s speakers with these incredible desktop speakers from Audio Engine. They connect wirelessly, or wired, and they sound amazing. I have 4 pairs of Audio Engine speakers throughout my home and I love them.
A multifunction color laser printer saves desk space. This one by HP not only scans, copies, and faxes; it prints double sided – saving paper. I have an earlier version of this printer and it’s been a workhorse in my home office.
