Best Desk Supplies for Creatives

Where can you get cool supplies for the office or school? My two favorite spots are Target and Typo.

Have you ever walked into Target and noticed the dollar bins? They’re great. You can find a lot of coordinating designs. One thing I like about Target is they know design. If you just browse the store, you’ll leave inspired, whether it’s their gift section, home decor, or holiday items. Take a look at these finds:

Now on to Typo… If there isn’t a Typo store near you, don’t worry. You can visit their online store at

I have to admit, I’ve bought many things here just for the mere fact that it’s cute, pretty, or creative. It’s pretty dangerous on my wallet! Here are a couple items I wanted to share:


A great gift for the creative carpenter in your life. These pens are perfectly designed and at a first glance, you almost don’t realize their pens!


Artists will love these “colored pencils” in a variety of colors. Twist the cap off to reveal a colored thin tip pen.
