Coffee Mug Warmer
Everyday life has plenty of unavoidable indignities; there’s no reason to add cold coffee to the list. We’ve come so far technologically, yet we’re still relying on basic pottery to keep our coffee warm, like it’s the Stone Age or something. People are just too busy to pay attention to how long their coffee mug has been sitting out on the desktop. Place it on one of these instead, and they never have to worry about it again.
People spend so much time indoors that it’s easy to forget there’s a whole wide world out there just chock full of nature.

And since the mossy jacket never really caught on, a desktop planter is just about the closest anyone can get to being in nature while they work, at least until they finish that wi-fi tree house they’ve been thinking about.

If you have a coworker who tends to go off the rails when no one’s looking, you might as well equip them with the excuse you know they’re going to need over and over again.
Sometimes life at work is so f-ed up that you don’t even have enough time to list all your f-ing grievances.

It works beautifully as a paperweight, but it’s also heavy enough to get attention every time they drop it.
Sometimes, you need to get down to business and do your work, but other times, you need to procrastinate—help your friend do the latter. There’s a time and a place for efficiency and that’s not when you have a pen that can bend in your hands.
