102 Desk Accessories

To Keep You Company at Your Full-Time Job or Seasonal Internship

— September 28, 2012 — Pop Culture
Whether you're working a full-time position or an advertising, fashion or journalism internship, chances are your work space could be improved by one of these fun desk accessories. Though some could call something like a desk-sized finger mini-putt game distracting, others can attest to the stimulated creativity experienced when your work day is made a little lighter by some kind of tabletop buddy.

Other awesome desk accessories include magnetic fluid lamps, which look to replace the cliche Newton's cradle. For the chic romantic-at-heart, why not place a teeny-tiny Eiffel Tower next to you to inspire you at your journalism job? If you're finding it hard to get through the work day, check out one of these desk buddies and lighten the load.
