A lot of us will be heading back to the office in the coming weeks and months, and for that reason we will also all be looking for ways to personalize our long-vacant desks with essential items that help make us feel comfortable in the workplace.
Whether you are buying items for your own desk, or thinking of gift ideas for your spouse, friend or family member that will be heading back to the office, then you have come to the right place.
Let’s get started on the 5 essential items you need to decorate your desk at work.
Get a great nameplate for your desk
One great way to make sure you recognize your desk after a long absence from the office is a personalized and charming nameplate. These nameplates can be comedic, they can be serious, they can be anything you want them to be! Just make sure that you get yours from a fantastic supplier so that you can be sure that they will be made with top craftsmanship out of top materials.
Something no-hassle plants
It’s always great to have some foliage in your office and on your desk, but a great addition to your personal work area can turn into a drag pretty quickly if you are not good about watering your plants or if they do not get enough daily sunlight.
To avoid the hassle of plants that will shrivel up and die in a matter of weeks, consider purchasing a few hassle-free plants such as cactuses or succulents. These hardy plants take up little space, need very little attention and are so dang cute!
Some unique wall artGone are the days where the only art you can have in your office are promotional posters! Think about personalizing your work area with some unique wall art. There are great marketplaces online where you can purchase directly from artists to make sure that you are supporting the creative people in the world who work so hard to make their pieces as special as they can be.
A big coffee mug or water bottle
This might not seem like a decoration per se, but it is definitely an attention grabber that offers quite a lot of utility as well! These big mugs and bottles make it so that you do not have to keep getting up and down to rehydrate throughout the day. Just make sure that you do not drink too much of your favorite coffee, tea, juice or water before a big meeting or you might have to duck out early to head to the restroom!
Pictures of your family
Last but not least, one great way to overcome the separation anxiety that may come with being away from your spouse and kids for the first time in months is to get an adorable picture framed to put on your desk. That way, you’ll be able to remind yourself why you work so hard in the first place!
