Let's face it, our jobs aren't the most glamorous. Whether you're wiping noses, up to your elbows in a sensory bin, or lugging therapy equipment around a school building - it often feels like we're the Cinderella of the workplace, the unsung hero of the school, or the forgotten soldier of the clinic.
A bit dramatic? Maybe.
But we think that, when you're done getting your hands dirty for the day, you deserve to come back to a desk that's fit for a queen. Today, we're sharing our favorite cute desk accessories that will help you create the office of your dreams!
Cute Desk Accessories to Pretty Up Your Workspace
Dry Erase Weekly Planner
A therapy schedule is no joke. It takes a lot to get all of those sessions organized and on the calendar. We love digital options for managing schedules, but sometimes it helps to have a visual hard copy to see it all in one place.

You'll love having a little greenery in your office - and it's the best kind...the kind you can't kill.

If you're an OT or mental health counselor, you already know that the olfactory system can be a powerhouse when it comes to calming chaotic behavior or keeping you and your kids awake and alert. This desktop diffuser is more than just pretty, it will fill the room with whatever calming or alerting scent you choose!
Acrylic Pen Holders
Notice a theme? Yep, we're into the simplicity of clear acrylic office accessories.
If you're a therapist, you know a good pen when you see one (and you're not above stealing a nice one if the opportunity presents itself). Here's where you can keep your stash.
Acrylic Dry Erase Memo Board
Is your memory not what it used to be? You need a central place to write down all of those to-dos.
This pretty board is great for scribbling down quick notes throughout the day!
When your memo board is full or if you're on the go, you'll be glad to have these cute sticky notes on hand.
They're great for staying organized, but sticky notes can also be used for some fun and creative crafts for kids!

This ingenious little gadget will tame the tangled mess inside your work bag.
Stick it on the side of your laptop charger and you'll finally have a safe place to wrap the cord and keep it under control. When you're not using it, you can simply push it down and it collapses!
Now that you have your portable charger cords taken care of, it's time to tackle the tangle of cords behind your desk and on the floor of your office.
With this awesome little device, you can tuck all of those unsightly wires away under a piece of furniture using the power strip. The visible part is flush to the wall for a sleek, streamlined look!

These pretty folders are the perfect organization option!
We all know that therapists are renowned pen thieves. As soon as your co-worker's pretty gel pen comes around the table during an IEP meeting, it's fair game.
