Working in an office—even if that office is in your home—can be monotonous. Day in and day out, you see the same desk, computer screen, and stationery supplies; you might even grow an unlikely attachment to your stapler. But just because you see these things for 40+ hours a week doesn’t mean you have to be at odds with them. Fun office supplies will make even the drabbest work days better.

Simply changing the items you display in your workspace can make it feel more personal. We’ve found a bevy of small office decor ideas that will not only keep your desk tidy but enliven it with playful items. One way is with the Big Wooden Cat Pile. It’s often marketed as a reverse-Jenga-style game, but when it’s not in use, you can arrange the cats in many gravity-defying combinations.

We’ve also selected objects that put the fun in functional. One of our favorites is a set of 12 pens that look like blades of grass; display them together and you’ve got a small meadow on your desk. And if you’re the type that’s always forgetting something, let Morris the donkey help you. He’s a desktop notepad that keeps small slips of paper in his back and whose head is a clip; just store your latest reminder between his snout and you'll be on time for that Skype call.

Get make your office feel like a home away from (even if you work from home) with these creative products.
