Even if you work at a computer 10 hours a day, sooner or later you realize you need office supplies, says Christopher Lowell, designer and author of "Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Organization," and host of the weekly Web series, "Ask Christopher."
One great gift for a co-worker or admitted workaholic is to pull together an attractive selection of much-needed supplies -- think oversized or color-coded -- and package them so the recipient can store, grab and use them easily. Post-It Notes, push pins, paper clips and scissors fit the bill.
"Find a really cool container that goes with the person's decor," Lowell says. And, from beautiful glass jars to faux Chinese takeout containers in a variety of colors -- there are a lot of options. "Really stuff this thing," Lowell says.
