9 Must-Haves: Handmade Office

This contributor post was written by Christina of Down and Out Chic.

What better way to cheer up your hard working, office dwelling friend than with some pretty do-dads for the work space? Essentially, this list is full of items I’d like to see in my own office, but since we’re in the season of giving, I thought I’d change the title from “wish list” to “gift list.”

1) Leather iPad case $148 via jj boyles
2) crane and giraffe prints $25 each by sharon montrose
3) wood whale $65 via the utility collective
4)  get it done notepad $8 via rifle paper co.
5) clock 8.25 now $50 via mb art studios
6)  set of 3 porcelain and leather hanging containers $120 via fashioned by
7) 2012 crested shield calendar $29.50 via the paper theives
8) from the desk of rubber stamps $12.50 via present & correct
9) paper pens $10 via letterbox co.
