Your desktop is your private space at work (or in your home office) and it tells a story about you by the way its accessorized. Here are the top 10 best desk accessories for 2020 to inspire you.
► Our top choice: These Cable Clips
Whether you’re looking to improve and decorate your workspace, or you need to find a gift for your office buddy (or white elephant), desk accessories come high on the shopping list. There are many types of them, so making a round-up of the best is quite the challenge.
We did our best, though, and the list has quite a diverse range of ideas. Be it for your productivity, decor, office fun, or as a gift. It’s impossible to name one thing as the best on a list like this so you might as well check them all out.
What’s going on as far as the qualities of our picks:
- Versatility – certain accessories are great for the desktop organization (all the small things) and others will help you organize the cables and cords around the desk.
- Portability also needs to be considered because there are accessories that are only installed on the desk while many times you’ll want something you can take with you.
- Value for money is, of course, one of the keys. Not everything that is expensive is worth it. And vice versa – we’ve found some cheap but quality products.
- Ease of use because you don’t want accessories that are overly complicated.
Even such small things as desk accessories have common issues:
- Wasted energy especially with products that use a lot of battery power or electricity.
- Bad smell especially if you’re in an enclosed office space where it could irritate your officemates.
- Size as you don’t want something that is too big for your desk.
