Desktop Essentials:Holiday Edition

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

I love to dress my desk up for the holidays. Having it look festive and bright cheers me up daily and helps me get into that holiday spirit. I mean, who can be sad at their desk when they have their own little light up Christmas tree!
 The Christmas Tree actually is powered by computer so I never have to worry about changing the batteries. It just plugs into one of my USB ports and it's under $10 at Target. I also love to switch out the hand sanitizer and hand cream on my desk for something more festive. Bath & Body Works has the ultimate festive hand sanitizers so I went and picked up 5 of them for $5 to put on my desk, throw in my purse, put my door, etc. I love the 'Tis The Season one cus it smells like Christmas fruits! I've talked about this in a winter hand cream favorites post, but it is also the absolute perfect set of hand creams for the Holidays. I grabbed the The Holiday Handbook Hand Creams set at Sephora during their big VIB sale and I have been loving it. My very favorite has to be the Peppermint Stick hand cream, which reminds me of candy canes and Peppermint Mochas. Every festive desk needs a festive mug and I think the seasonal Starbucks Christmas Mugs fit that bill. They have a new one every year, usually designed to look like one of their Starbucks famous red cups. I have been drinking everything out of this mug just because it looks so cheery! I also like to switch out my little mini tea infuser that sits on my desk. I usually use a cute little whale infuser, but with the holidays approaching, I switched to the most festive one I could find. It's a little Christmas Tree Tea Infuser that sits just below the water, bringing a bit of festive cheer to your glass. The last thing I like to dress up for the Holidays on my desk is my #Cube. It's perfect for streaming holiday themed photos from Instagram all day long. My favorite one to stream right now is Holiday.Desires.


Do you add any festiveness to your desk during the Holidays? Share with me in the comments!

  7. Love that tiny Christmas tree! I haven't ever had a job where I had a desk to decorate (when I worked as a college prof, I shared a desk with three others; when I worked as a homeschool teacher in someone's house, so my decorations would have disappeared immediately; and now I work from home, which is already decorated--sort of). Somedays, I wish I had a more traditional work set up so I could do cute stuff like this! :)

  17. I wish I had a desk to do cute things with, okay if I'm being honest I own a desk however it is used more as a table to hold all my stuff . So I usually work from my bed or couch.
