We all know those people who carry their phones and laptops without a case—yikes! Talk about an anxiety spike just looking at it. Do not risk the well-being of your smart devices! With padded laptop slips, you can keep your computer safe with beautiful style and sleekness. We love the look of our “naked” devices—that’s is why we love the slip, as there’s no need to snap on hard plastic cases for transportation. Just be safe when using your device!

This isn’t exactly a desk essential, but every woman needs an oversized tote to haul all those items you need for work that won’t fit in your cute mini-purse. Whether you’re bringing your lunch, your workout clothes, or just refreshing essentials, a tote is a must!

Calling all men and women! Yes, fanny packs have made a comeback, some with a much more modern name—the belt bag. There are also small backpack and cross-body versions like you see above! These pouches can be super convenient if you are an on-the-go businessman or woman! When you run a quick errand, you don’t want to have to carry your big office tote; you want an easy hands-free option! Nowadays, you don’t have to trade looks for convenience. Since coming back from the 1980s, fanny packs have made a total transformation.

Personalized tech cases are a great way to protect your devices but also have them look stylish! You can find cases for just about any device and they can even be personalized with any pattern or saying that motivates you, promotes your business or favorite things, or just brings you joy.

A small plant can be a great addition in any office; they give a sense of personalization and life to typically drab desks. Plants are also great for purifying the air, which is important when you’re stuck in an office all day. Plants intake our CO2 and produce oxygen, which is great to keep us awake and focused!

Your office chair is a big part of your space and your health! If you are one who sits for the majority of the time you spend at work, a comfortable chair is a necessity. Make sure you have one that supports your back and keeps you from slumping. Comfort can have style, too—adding a beautiful velvet chair, for example, can really make your workspace your own!

Notes Organizer
