Picks: 10 Quirky Things for Your Desk

Plus, your drink needs to ride a flamingo, too!

What We're Loving Now


( This week feels very desk-themed: We found a pen that makes us feel like champion writers, a unicorn tape dispenser, and an adorable sharpener that makes us want to sharpen even the pointiest pencil.


Of course, we wanted to throw a few wildcards in there, so if you're feeling a little hot, we found floaties for your drink, plus the coolest hairbrush ever.
