Besides your room, I feel like the second place that shows a person’s true personality is their desk. Whether if you are in your dorm or at work, your desk will become your second home. So, why not make it comfortable and reflect your personality? Here is a curated list of items you could use to transform your workspace as well as enhance its functionality! (Side note, these items were all found on the “explore” page on Amazon! You should check it out! You’ll never know what you’re going to run into!)
Multifunctional Charging Station
This is an amazing product to have on your desk if you have a ton of devices that require power all at once and you cannot be bothered switching out plugs underneath your desk or by a far away outlet. With this multifunctional charging station, you are able to charge 2 or 3-prong traditional US plugs as well as USB devices such as phone chargers! This device is a game changer and a back saver!

Adjustable Natural Wood Desktop Storage Organizer
The more storage, the better! I love this desktop organizer for a few reasons: 1) It doesn’t take up much space. 2) It has multiple shelving units. 3) The wooden color makes it versatile and customizable. 4) It’s extendable. And 5) IT’S SO FREAKING CUTE! This storage organizer is quite small, so you may only be able to store smaller items such as stationary, mugs, and office supplies, but this shelf is sturdy enough to store books and heavier items as well! The extendable feature definitely comes in handy if you need a longer bookshelf. Pick it up here!
ToneDen Fidget Cube
So fidget cubes were all the rage this past year, and although people have gotten over this fidget toy craze, I think that this is still a handy tool to have at your desk or to bring with you wherever requires a lot of waiting (Ahem, I’m looking at YOU, DMV!). There are so many brands of fidget cubes out there, but ToneDen is one of the only brands that I trust! This toy is also a conversation starter and a magnet for people to visit your desk! Grab 2 or 3 and share with your colleagues who are also kinetic learners or avid fidgeters! Click here!
90’s Jazz Mug
Do you remember this design from the 90’s? It was basically on every to-go cup ever made! Now you can immortalize this design forever on this mug! This piece is also a conversation starter with all the other 90’s babies in the office! (Apologies if your coworkers were born in the 2000’s) Let’s face it, every drink is better when using this mug! Let the 90’s nostalgia commence!
Desktop Cable Management
Okay, whether you are working in an office or a dorm room, EVERYONE can relate to this! Cord management is a problem that a lot of people have and it is inevitable! However, this tool makes cable management a little less impossible and is definitely on my “Go Buy” list! There are other versions of cable management tools, but this one has been my favorite because it keeps the cables in one place! Another popular option is the single organizers, which is a great option as well and I will link those here! Click here for a life with no more tangled cords!
8GB Nikon Camera USB
One of things a lot of people over look is having a USB drive. This tool is so useful, and I’m not just talking about using this for storage. Having a decently-sized USB flash drive is also handy for transporting files quickly when Google Drive or Dropbox is acting up! I used my hard drive every day! In fact, my office also had a printer where I could just plug in a USB drive directly into the printer to print out files! Having a USB drive handy is also great for storing templates and forms that need a quick transfer! You don’t need to have your USB shaped like a Nikon camera, but having a unique shape will differentiate your drive from others! Plus, this Nikon-shaped USB is pretty awesome.

5-Piece Desk Organizer
An organized desk usually has some sort of compartment element to it whether it be a pencil case or sticky note holder. What I love about this product is that it has 5 COMPARTMENTS! These compartments are all different sizes so you can pretty much put in whatever fits. This organizer also comes apart so that you can arrange each piece however you want. It comes in 3 colors: black, yellow, and teal! Click here to get more organized now!
Hanging Clear Glass Prism
A desk is not complete without some green! Now, before you completely disregard having to take care of a plant while you are working, hear me out! Air plants and succulents are THE plants to have, whether you have a green thumb or not. They don’t require a ton of water or maintenance and they mostly rely on sunlight and oxygen! Of course in drier weather, the plants will need a spritz or two of water, but other than that, they don’t require much attention! Plants are a really great decor item to have on your desk because it brings life to your workstation! Also, the presence of a plant subconsciously relaxes and rejuvenates the mind, knowing that life exists in the most dreary places such as an office. Shop some green here!
Flexible USB Touch LED Desk Lamp
Can’t get enough green? Check out this lamp! Some study spaces require more light, especially during the fall and winter months when the days are shorter. This lamp is dimmable and doubles as a pencil holder! Multifunctional items have a special place in my heart. If the plant nature of this lamp hasn’t already sold you, then get this: this lamp is rechargeable, which means this lamp is portable! Shop this lamp here!
“To Accomplish” Sticky Notes
Why get regular sticky notes when you can get THESE sticky notes?! These notes are particularly awesome because each set is a different color and they have different functions! I know, I know, that’s the gimmick of these sticky notes and that you can designate functions to regular sticky notes. However, what are the odds that people stick to that method? For me, if a sticky note is pre-labeled, then I am more inclined to use it for that purpose and to use it consistently! Another great thing about these sticky notes is that they are lined so that your writing will not stray or become crooked. This is important because it makes your lists easier to read! Cop these sticky notes here!
