DESK & OFFICE EQUIPMENT

Metallica Fans

These miniature versions of the traditional floor fan say "Retro Mini Fan" on them, and the retro part is that the blades and cages are all metal. The handy part is that they're just 5-3/8" dia and the plug is a USB, ready to cool you off right from your (actual) desktop. Tilts 180° up and down and comes with a 4-foot cord. Super quiet, too. We'll pick one in red, blue or black.

Kierkegaard's Tape Dispenser

Our most Scandinavian tape dispenser ever is in gray and fashionable lime green. Looks like a designer hockey-puck, but pop up the cutter and it's a tape dispenser with "Søren®" discretely printed on the non-green side. Measures about 3" dia x 1-1/2" thick, and dispenses 3/4" tape.

This little silver plastic basic-function calculator measures 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" with a clear plastic ruler that folds down on both sides. Open it and it looks oddly like a communications satellite.The ruler is millimeters/centimeters only, up to 320mm or 32cm. But it's still a lovely straight-edge, or a gift for a Canadian friend. Runs on a single replaceable button-cell battery, included.

Sciss Boom Bah!

Scissoring has never been more exciting than with these 6" stainless steel snippers printed with either a rose pattern or license plate graphics right on the blades. From Maped, these "Tatoo" scissors have color-coordinated padded handles, which adds to the fashion-forwardness. Just don't put them down on a license plate or a bed of roses or you may never find them. We'll pick a design because we know best, really.

Easy In, Easy Out

Whatever auto manufacturer you think is super-fancy...PaperPro® is the "that" of staplers. In this combo package you'll get not only a compact 4-1/2" long spring-loaded stapler that could hardly be easier to use--even for multi-page stapling--but also a standard staple remover for those inadvertent attachments. We know--that'd be enough, but you'll also get a couple lengths of standard staples to get you started right away.

Rolodex™ Desk Thingy

Nice mahogany-stained thingy, too, with faux pleatherette sides and a drawer. Measures 7" x 4-3/4" x 4-1/8" with a 6-1/4” wide x 4” deep (with an open front) shelf on top and a slot for a wire in the back. We think it was made as a phone charger caddy. (It’s just wide enough for an iPhone 6 Plus without a case, and would probably take a wireless charger.) Also has a 5-1/4" x 3-9/16" x 1-7/8" drawer, clearly made to hold stuff.
