2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Office Supply Geeks

I tried to round up some of my favorite items that I ran across this year that I thought would make great for great gift ideas this holiday season.  Hopefully this list will help you find somethihg for everyone from your friends, and family to that odd-ball co-worker and your manager plus everyone in between, not to mention some simple stocking-stuffers too.

Star Wars Moleskine Planners and Journals:

I guess that this year it wouldn’t be a gift guide without latching onto the anything and everything Star Wars theme.  Moleskine has been doing some pretty great looking Star Wars planners and journals for a while now, and they seem to get better each time.  Check out all of the different versions with C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Stormtroopers (Buy via Amazon)

invisiPlug Wood Camouflage Surge Protectors:

Every year I’m guilty of grabbing at least one or two gifts for myself when I’m doing my Christmas shopping, and this is exactly the kind of thing that would probably fall into that category.  The invisiPlug is a pretty ingenious idea yet so simple in concept.  It comes in three different shades designed to match your hard wood floors and blend in instead of the stark contrast of some ugly bright white or bland beige box sitting on your floor looking ugly.  This is probably perfect for that Christmas tree that you recently put up! (Buy via Amazon)

Architect’s Wallet:


One of my favorite wallets that we have reviewed here is the Architect’s wallet which comes wraps a tiny Moleskine Volant Mini notebook into a great leather shell that will not only hold your cash, credit cards, and drivers license, but also a mini Fisher Space pen.  Its a great EDC item that lets you keep lots of stuff easily accessible in a pretty compact and really awesome looking package.  Check out our review of them here! (Buy via Huckberry)

Retro 51 Coffee Tornado Rollerball Pen:

Our friends over at Goldspot have an exclusive Coffee themed Retro 51 Tornado rollerball pen that you can’t find anywhere else.  Its got a coffee themed design and also sports a beige colored barrel that has a texture that feels like a burlap sack for holding coffee beans.  For the number of coffee addicts out there, this is probably a gift that you cant go wrong with.  (Buy via Goldspot)

Pilot Iroshizuku Mini Fountain Pen Ink Sampler:

These mini 15 ml glass bottles of Pilot Iroshizuku fountain pen ink come in a great looking white plastic gift box and make a great gift for the discerning fountain pen writer.  There are three different color sets (for a total of 9 different colors) of these awesome inks so as long as you have some idea of your recipients style you can probably find something that will be a great match.  These bottles are the perfect size to experiment with some different colors to find one that you really like.  I’ve got Set B with Dark Blue, Blue Grey, and Purple Magenta sitting on my desk next to me as I write this, and I promise you its something that any fountain pen enthusiast would cherish this holiday season. (Buy via JetPens)

Sticky Quotes Motivational Sticky Notes:

These motivational sticky notes have all kinds of inspirational quotes on them to help motivate your friends and co-workers.  These are the perfect stocking-stuffer and a great way to have your co-workers thinking of you all year long as they use these to help boost everyone’s morale day after day.  Great as a co-worker to peer gift or for a manager to give to all of their employees.  (Buy via Amazon)

Silicon Power 64GB USB 3.0 Titanium Key Chain Flash Drive:

I’ve had this tiny 64GB USB 3.0 titanium flash drive on my key chain for half a year now and its not only been invaluable, but its held up to the day to day abuse of being put into and pulled out of my pocket and banging against my keys and wallet with no noticeable issues.  Flash drives are always a great stocking stuffer but thats because a lot of them tend to break over time, pretty sure that won’t be an issue with this one.  (Buy via Amazon)

Saddleback Leather Thin Front Pocket Briefcase:

I’m already the proud owner of the Classic Saddleback Leather Briefcase, but I’ve been seriously contemplating this Thin Front Pocket version of the bag since I don’t need to carry as much as I used to on a day to day basis.  Never an inexpensive purchase, but the slim version definitely comes with a slimmer price tag as compared to the Classic version, and with the amazing look and quality that you get with every product from Saddleback Leather you won’t regret your purchase if its for you, and if its for a gift you will have one incredibly happy recipient.  (Buy via Saddleback Leather)

EMF Blocking Pocket Patch:

When you think about the term office supply geek you may instantly picture a pocket protector, but for the modern day office supply geek in your life, these Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) pocket protectors are the more modern day version of that image you have in your head.  This is designed to help keep the dangerous emissions from your cell phone from doing you harm as its pressed up against you in your pocket where most of us carry them.  Its probably the closest thing you can get to a healthy office supply related gift this year.  (Buy via Amazon)

Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen:

The Pilot Metropolitan fountain is probably one of the best writing AND nicest looking beginner fountain pens you are going to find, and it can be had for a great price.  It eliminates any barriers to those that are on the fence about trying fountain pens, so if someone on your list has been looking to dive in and experience what its like to write with a fountain pen, this is a no-brainer, just be careful because its pretty much a “gateway” fountain pen and will probably lead to other more expensive fountain pen purchases.  (Buy via Amazon)

Star Wars Darth Vader Desk Lamp:

I couldn’t resist because its probably the coolest desk lamp we ever reviewed here on the site and its a timely gift with the release of the new Star Wars movie just around the corner.  Having  Darth Vader Lego LED lightsaber desk lamp is probably the most office supply geeky thing you could dream of owning or gifting to someone of any age.
