I have written about Quill before, and it's usually been about some of the very awesome office tips they offer that can be found on their blog. The fact remains though, that in addition to being a wealth of knowledge, they also sell everything you could need for your home or business office, at very reasonable prices!! My latest favorite? Their big selection of Washi Tape! They have so many designs (and Washi tape has thousands of uses!). I took a handful of them over the holidays and put them in stockings. They were very well received. The cat paws print was my fave, but the metallic colors were great too!!
They also have other things you might not necessarily think of, including this Coffeemate Chocolate Chip Creamer (say what??). I was so excited to try it, and it was pretty tasty. A nice twist on plain cream or milk. While I was stuffing those stockings I mentioned above, I was using it in my coffee. Now that the new year is here, I'm still using and loving it as an indulgent, but not calorie-laden treat.
I'm not kidding when I say Quill has an extensive inventory. Take their Post-It selections for an example. My favorite is their Photo Frame Post-It holder. My son asked if he could have it on his desk, and I said yep. He put in one of his favorite pictures from an aquarium visit we took not too long ago (where it looks like we're standing among sea creatures), and he loves it.
They have different styles of Post-Its too, including their various paper color selections, and multiple types of dispensers. You can buy the paper in bulk too, if you'd like, which is nice (especially for the office where you can go through these like crazy). I say if you're going to use something every day, might as well have it be in a cute or unusual dispenser that you like!! It makes work more fun.
Need a tape dispenser? For the holiday, I handed out tape dispensers to a group of folks that I volunteer with, and gave one to a gal at work.
Quill has so many different kinds that I couldn't resist. I didn't even wrap the ones that were given to the volunteers. I simply put them in the Christmas Tree and let them choose the one they wanted. It was a nice treat, and everyone had fun picking out the one they liked best. I had a fancy gold one that was an instant favorite. What a cool way to bring in the new year...having that pretty and festive color on your desk.
They have solid colors too for those who like traditional items on their desk, or you can mix it up and get a funky color if you like to jazz things up. Turquoise, anyone?
There's a high heel for the fashion diva at your job (cute, right?!).
And there's a cat! So cute, with his roll of tape held close to her playful chest like a ball of yarn. This one was hard to give away. I really, really wanted to keep it, but...it was the holiday season when I got these, and well, you're supposed to think of others (always, but especially during that time), so I gifted it to a woman at my job who goes above and beyond for those in need at my place of employment. In her particular position, she knows which kids are having huge problems at home, such as homelessness, abuse, etc., and she quietly and delightfully gifted things to them (a sweatshirt and school shirt for a boy who had one...just one sweatshirt at home that he wore everyday and was falling apart; a bookbag for a kid carrying a disposable plastic bag every day, shoes for a boy who had holes in his). The joy I saw lighting up faces from those gifts was genuine. So she deserved a treat, and this kitten/cat tape dispenser is happily resting on her desk now, for the new year. I hope it is a reminder to her, that we appreciate her thoughtfulness for these kids we all love.

There are others to choose from too, lots of 'em because as I noted, Quill is cool like that...these just happen to be the ones that were my personal faves.
They have practical items too like tissue! I didn't even know AngelSoft made tissue, but this box arrived and was as soft as it could be! You want to have tissue in the office, especially this time of the year when colds and flu are running so rampant. I know before the holidays there was a huge bout of 'achoo-ness' going around, and now after the holiday I've seen where the sniffles have made a big return.
This paper holder that Quill has for sale is pretty handy. You can attach it to the side of your pc and it will hold your documents up so you can see it. This one works on flat screen panels. It's handy for keeping what I need close at hand. That is especially important at my job, where no matter how sound my intentions to keep a clear desk are at the start of the day, I always end up with a mountain of paperwork to sort. Things can get easily lost like that, but no more... not with my Flat Panel Document Holder.
And an office wouldn't be an office without some tasty snacks sitting around to munch on. Quill has those too, and Laffy Taffy is always a hit (with the kids I'm sure, but I'm talking about with the adults, which makes me laugh). That burst of flavor is a hit at any age, I guess, OR there are just some things you just never outgrow, like a sweet treat every now and again. :)
Start the new year off right by sprucing up your home or business office with some cute and practical supplies from Quill. Or pick some up to gift to those around you for the new year! No matter your intentions, if you are looking for anything at all to buy for the work space, head on over to Quill. Chances are high you'll find exactly what you need, and then some (the surprises they have there, like the cute cat dispenser I talked about, are the best!). My favorite thing? Everything you need is in one spot!
