Summer mouse pads
Getting a new mouse pad is one of the simplest ways to give your desk a summer-like feel. Try mouse pads that feature summer classics like a watermelon watercolor mouse pad or a mouse pad with ice cream or banana leaves on it. Is the beach calling you? Try a mouse pad that features an ocean wave or surfboards.
Also, consider getting a desk mat. Desk mats can serve as organizers with built in calendars and storage or as extra long mouse pads. Either way, desks mats can give your desk a fresh update. Consider buying brightly colored desk mats with a protective, waterproof covering. Or consider buying an extra long, extra soft desk mat with an ocean scene.
Themed pencil holders
While you’re switching out your mouse pad don’t forget to switch out your pencil holder as well. You can buy bright, colorful pencil holders, a pineapple pencil cup, or a pencil cup that looks like a beach pail. You can make your own pencil holder, too. Simply wrap a metal can with rope and hot glue the edges down. This creates a nautical pencil cup.
Bring the outdoors indoors by buying a colorful desk planter with a colorful plant. You can buy some beautiful porcelain planters for an elegant desk setting. Or, if you’re looking for something small, try a colorful pod planter or a cute whale planter to continue your beach theme.
This may not look like a summer accessory, but it will definitely feel like one. If you like to work with a light breeze in the air, buy a small desk fan. You can find small fans online or in some stores. There are some plug-in and battery operated varieties.
