HSS Gift Guide: The Well-Dressed Desk
Handsome gift ideas for your office desk
If you’re like us, you spend a lot of time at a desk. And if that’s the case, you need it to be a place that you want to spend a lot of time at. Accessories make the man and accessories make the man’s desk. We’ve hand-picked some of our favorite items from the shop’s office collection to help make your workspace a little more luxe and the envy of all your colleagues.
A solid utility accessory. Similar to our brass tray, we love this cup because it really is a Jack of all trades. Extra pencils laying around? Toss them in. Want to neaten up those paper clips? Got you covered. Had a tough day? Well, you could pour some whiskey in it too and drink like a king.
The pen is mightier than the sword. A pen, like your opinion, should carry some weight. Now, how a pen feels in your hand is a matter of personal preference. But when you’re using a heavier pen, it kind of gives you a feeling of power.

Hand-crafted practicality. We love items that are distinctive and call attention to themselves in all the right ways. And also those that you never knew you needed or wanted until you see them on someone else’s desk. Our five-slot pen and pencil rests are all handcrafted, making each example unique. Now that’s cool.

A place for all your great ideas. One of the truisms of the world is that if you don’t write something down, you’re going to forget it. That goes for your grocery list as much as it does for all those genius ideas. Yes, you could use post-it notes, but why not step up into something a little more adult and a lot more elegant?
Show some respect. Your business card is an expression of you and it deserves to be displayed with style and class. Made of solid brass, our brass business card holder looks rich and cuts and elegant profile.
Owen & Fred Brass Business Card Stand, $39
The picture of success. Something to aspire to or an affirmation. This archival-quality print is more than suitable for framing, would look exquisite hanging in your office or den and makes an excellent gift for the hard-working, stylishly savvy power broker in your life.
