Editor’s Note: The stockings are hung by the chimney with care…now what the hell are you gonna put in there? Ah, stocking stuffers — the little things, the extras, the last minute goodies, the fun gifts. They’re as enjoyable to give as they are to receive. Thing is, there’s an endless supply of stocking-size gifts under $100, and picking up the right ones can be a little daunting. That, of course, is where we come in: over the next ten days we’ll publish stocking stuffer guides curated around themes that’ll make stuffing that certain someone’s stocking markedly easier.

You and your giftee (who’re we kidding, these are for you) probably spend as much time or more behind your desk than you do in bed. (Ouch). To ensure your workspace is outfitted with kit that’ll keep you organized, streamlined, efficient and stylish, we’ve found the best desktop effects for your office — because you’ll do your best work when your helm is cohesive and cutting edge.
