8 Fun Things You Need For Your Desk

You’re sitting at your desk. Your Microsoft Word document is painfully blank. The room is fading to grey and you’re feeling very sleepy…until you decide that you need to spruce up your work space! Look no further for the eight best things you can buy to make your desk look fun and inviting.

1. Bubble wrap dispenser

Everyone loves bubble wrap. It’s sort of a crime not to. What’s better than having your very own dispenser sitting on your desk? Having one of these babies will let you pop those little plastic bubbles whenever you like. Do you have a better way to release your student anxieties? Even more—it comes in a really cute tissue box. Don’t let anyone steal your bubble wrap!

2. Paperclip holder

Surely I’m not the only person who has knocked over a tin of paper clips before. They literally disperse and disappear before your eyes. Having a paperclip holder is an adorable way to clear your clutter and make your desk a more practical workspace.

3. Julius Caesar pen holder

Need somewhere to put your stationary? It’s your turn to stab Caesar. This is a great place to store your pencils and ballpoint pens! Almost everybody will understand this reference. If you don’t, you can buy it and pretend that you’re historically woke. Can you fit a pair of scissors in there? There’s only one way to find out.

4. Pita bread pencil case

This pencil case will make your classmates envious—and hungry. The great thing about it is that it will keep all of your pens and pencils secure under a little strap, so you don’t have to worry about them falling out when you’re walking around with it. You can even wrap this little guy up like real pita bread! One warning—don’t mistake it for your lunch.

5. Flip clock

Clocks are pretty much essential for any desk. Although most of us use our phones to check the time, this is a great way to lessen your social media temptations. It also looks really aesthetically pleasing. Flip clocks will give your desk a vintage vibe, and is sure to attract many a compliment from guests.

6. Liquid Timer

Maybe the flip clock thing just isn’t for you. In that case, check out liquid timers! Though I’m not sure how accurate they are, they’re fun things to display on your desk. You can also find them in all sorts of colours, so you don’t have to worry about them clashing against your curtains or duvet covers. Be prepared to spend some of your time watching the beads drizzle down these timers. People will probably think you’ve been hypnotised.

7. Funny notebooks

Another essential item for every desk! Your notebooks don’t have to be plain and boring. Why would you even consider purchasing plain exercise books when you can search for covers displaying funny captions? These will keep you amused, and excited to take notes. They might also earn a laugh from your fellow students.

8. Posters

(But make it funny). There’s nothing better than having these fun things hanging up on your walls. Posters will give your room a humorous feel and will ensure that you have something to look at when you’re feeling mentally drained. Got a pic of Justin Bieber’s mugshot? Tape it above your desk. Got a poster of Kim K hilariously bawling her eyes out? Show it off to the world!
