5 Back-to-School Desk Accessories For Grown Ups

August 16, 2012

Even though our back-to-school days are (long) behind us, we still love
splurging on new office gear to put us into work mode.

Staple away with this slick, modern Buro
stapler from Lexon
. Even the most paper-free office will appreciate
this stylish desk topper. $35 at Orling & Wu, 28 Water St., Vancouver,


Recharge with this ProLine
Universal Portable Power Bank
, which works for all cell phones, and
can charge an iPhone 4 three and a half times, or an iPad up to 70 per
cent. This is far chicer than a lumpy power cable, and works on several
of our devices. From $39.99 at Future


Light up your workspace with these stylish Anglepoise table lamps. Great
for brightening up a workspace late into the night, or (even better)
lighting the pages of the great book youd rather be curling up with.
From $340 at Provide, 529 Beatty St., Vancouver, 604-632-0095,


Keep track with this paper
mouse pad from Knock Knock
, which doubles as work week calendar and
to-do list. Despite our handy digital calendars and reminders, theres
something very satisfying about putting pen to paper. 5 Days a Week
Paper Mousepad, $12.99 at Room in Order, 1055 Davie St., Vancouver,


Store it all in these Ikea PS 2012 multicoloured storage boxes, which
can be wall-mounted or stand on a flat surface. Well be stacking them to
make pretty colour combinations and filling them with lovely office
supplies, not only useful but a great procrastination activity.
Organizing is work though, isnt it? Set of 4, $49.99 at Ikea, 3320
Jacombs Rd., Richmond, 1-866-866-4532,
