If you are obsessed with the accessories on your desk or know someone who is, you might have a stationery addiction. Not to worry, there’s hope—in the form of even more cool things for you to make your office space even more awesome. Notebooks, pens, and pencil cases: you can never have too many.

While you may want everything on this list for yourself, think of others (’tis the season!) and buy two of each, because these items are tried and tested as certifiably great holiday stocking stuffers for the nerdy writers/office workers in your life. And don’t worry if you end up with too many things: a cluttered desk is a sign of a genius at work—that’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

Only 5,000 were created, each hand-stamped with a unique number.

Definitely.

Nope Sign from Modcloth
