Tangram Erasers

Uh, Tangram Erasers? Of course we need a set. Do you know the history of the Tangram? Do you have fond memories of making shapes with one when you were younger? Maybe you could see if your brain still has the skills to hammer out a few puzzles with these erasers, knowing they could always do some erasing if you fail to have fun with the puzzle part.

Desk Knife

No need for any subpar shiv in your desk drawer (the office is ridiculously competitive, isn’t it), because you’ll have the Desk Knife. It’s a multipurpose cutting tool that’s pretty enough to leave out, within arm’s reach. Inspired by the small, pocket-sized Japanese Kiridashi Knife, this knife feels closer to a writing tool, so you’ll enjoy handling it while you slice open boxes, mail, and other paraphernalia (NOT your coworkers).

Strip Tape Dispenser

Maybe you don’t need a new tape dispenser, but isn’t this one interesting? It’s certainly different from the bulky, plastic ones you’ll find at regular office supply outlets. The skinny handle makes it ideal to sit in a pencil cup to save space, or you can choose to leave it out on your desk for a minimal statement.

Kraft Standing Weekly Planner

Still needing some scheduling help? Perhaps revert to the old paper/pen method and use this weekly scheduler to keep track of important events. It has 100 pages; one side shows a weekly plan page, the other a check list and room for memos. All pages are dateless so you can start whenever you want. Prefer a non-standing option? The Brilliant Weekly Scheduler is very similar.

Versa Ruler

Whoa! The next time you want to draw a bunch of multi-sided shapes, get yourself a Versa Ruler. Set your desired angles by snapping the rulers into place, then pivot and slide the rulers to get just the right lines. Yes, it is a pretty specific tool, but as anyone who’s worked in a studio or workshop knows, most of the time using the right tool saves a ton of time.

pencil+

Do you refuse to give up on your pencils? Me too. I generally keep them around until they’re too small to use, and that’s just where the pencil+ comes in to save the day. It’s an all-in-one extender, sharpener and transporter. The sharpener is built into the end, so you’ll always have a sharp point when you want it. Smart, right?

Both holder and case will change color over time as they oxidize.

The Illuminated Bookmark

Okay, now, no need to worry about what to get me for a gift- one of these Illuminated Bookmarks will do just fine. It’s a bookmark printed on a special film with ink that transmits electricity. See the circuit the ink creates? Add a lithium coin battery between the positive and negative ends and you’ve got an LED light. Pretty fun, huh? It’s sure to please any reader that is fond of technology.

Iso Organizer L

Well, hello there. The Iso Organizer comes in a larger, longer profile, which is pretty perfect for organizing all sorts of papers, mail, and books. It’s made of heavy gauge cold rolled steel (6 lbs.) with a cork underside, so it’ll stay put without scratching the surface underneath. I have the original size (in blue) on my desk and I’m now trying to think if I need this larger version somewhere else. Hmm.
