While some of us are just going about our business as usual taking a few minutes of the day to express how excited we are for the holiday, there are a few out there that won’t pry themselves from their desks until Christmas Eve.
These people need a break more than anyone so here are six great desk gadgets and tools that are as fun as they are useful for the workaholic in your life!
