1. A Cellphone Charger

In today’s world your cellphone plays a crucial part in your day to day. Whether you are making after work plans, keeping track of tasks or appointments on your iCalendar, or planning your commute home with the help of Waze – you’ll need your phone. We recommend keeping a USB plugged into your computer, this way you won’t have to worry about forgetting it at home and you can keep your phone charged while you work.

2. Gum or Mints

Discussing plans for company expansion with the smell of what you had for lunch still lingering can be distracting and coffee breathe is no better. Keeping gum, mints or even candy handy will keep your breathe fresh the entire day. Regardless of what you eat or drink.

3. Flip Flops

Keeping a pair of flip flops or just a pair of flats at your desk can be a real life saver! After a long day of running from meeting to meeting with your favorite Louboutin’s on, throwing on a pair of flats on at the end of the day can help make the walk to your car a little less painful.

We’ve all been there and no matter how great your relationship is with your fellow female coworkers, asking for one just always feels uncomfortable. Enough said.
