Office Must Haves – Shelby

You’ll thank me later.

As crazy as it sounds, this topic was what inspired me to start this blog in the first place! I think this idea stemmed from the anxiety and excitement of having an office to make my own. So where do you start?

Work can be stressful! So first, let’s start with something I feel like everyone can use to make their office feel a little more homey: a diffuser! To me, this is the most important thing you can have in your space, just for the relaxation factor.

I highly recommend the one above because it’s easy to use, BPA free and it even changes colors to fit whatever theme you’re going for in your office. I wanted a diffuser for work because I worry about using essential oils in my home with my puppy. This light weight, remote control diffuser leaves me stress free and relaxed on my busiest days.

Next up, we have another item that can change the atmosphere of any space. And maybe you’ve already guessed it. I’m talking about a plant; it doesn’t matter the size or the shape or type. However, if you’re like me, and can’t keep a plant alive to save your own life; I would recommend a succulent! (I REALLY can’t keep any plant alive, so here’s my favorite fake ones.)


I chose these succulents because not only are the adorable, but they’re small enough to have multiple in different areas of your office. Or take them home to spruce up your house or apartment!

Probably one of the coolest things about having a career where you get to work in your own office, is the business cards. No, I’m serious. These are little tiny marketing tools for YOU. And of course you need a cute way to store them.

How cute is this little marble business card holder? This stand is such a vibe for any boss babe looking to boost her office aesthetic. You worked hard to be in a position where you have your own business cards, so I highly recommend showing them off.

I’m assuming if you work in an office, you have a laptop or a desktop computer that you use the majority of the time. That’s why I’m suggesting this next product!

Personally, I think the picture says it all. This beauty is a multifunctional desk mat that comes in light blue, dark blue, black, brown, pink and purple. My favorite part? The fact that this sucker is waterproof. And if you’re anything like me; the odds of you spilling something on your desk are higher than the average.

Okay, so I’ve got one more for you and this one is very important. You need to have at least one thing in your office that sparks joy for you and you alone. This is going to be different for every person. For me, it’s undoubtedly giraffes as you can see by the main image on this post.

I say this is so important because when someone walks into your office, they should be able to learn something about you. They might consider you adventurous because you have pictures of your latest trip to another country, or maybe they can tell your favorite color is yellow by your pencil holder. Whatever it is; your office is your first impression and these are just a few products to help you make it a good one.

Thanks for reading and happy office decor hunting!
