What Non-Tech Gear Are Staples On Your Desk?

Those with the most minimal desktops need nothing but a laptop computer and miles of shiny, clean table top to complete their "workspace." But then there's the rest of us. Maybe we're note-takers. Maybe we're sentimentalists. Maybe we're hoarders. But our desk tops are covered with plenty of non-tech gear.

Sometimes all this decor porn can make our lived-in home offices feel cluttered. But we refuse to feel bad for keeping books, notebooks and happy little travel trinkets at home next to our keyboard.

So we want to know: What non-tech gear are staples on your desk?

For me, it's magazines. I've got more active subscriptions than pairs of shoes, and I love to keep a short stack on my desktop whenever I need a quick break from work or some inspiration to brainstorm ideas.

What about you, readers? Do you keep a drafting table for sketching? Prefer your paper calendars over iCal? Still have an updated Rolodex of business contacts? Tell us in the comments!
