10. Hermès Pleiade Mouse Pad


SHOP NOW $640

“I don’t understand why people scoff at spending money on the basics – if you work at a desk, you use your mouse pad every single day, and having a gorgeous, rich leather style instead of the office supply store neoprene is a delight every time I use it. I loved the Tory Burch style I had at my home office so much I bought a second for my desk in the Tower. They sadly aren’t being made anymore, but I’d never say no to an upgrade in an orange box.” —Leah Melby Clinton, Contributing Editor

11. Smythson Panama Cross-Grain Leather Notebook


SHOP NOW $85

"Frank Smythson introduced the portable diary in 1908 and promoted it as 'the Panama hat of books' since it could be bent and folded without losing its shape. Named for its lightweight blue pages, the Featherweight Diary is still one of the best notebooks on the market." —Sam Dangremond, Digital Articles Editor

12. Infinity Fidget Cube


SHOP NOW $18.88

"The fidget spinner blew up last year and hogged the spotlight from more intricate fidget toys like this infinity cube. For the extra-restless, there's nothing quite as satisfying as the cool weighted clips and folds of this smooth silver fidget cube." —Leah Silverman, Digital Editorial Fellow
