In the case of a home, apart from designing and buying a beautiful place, one needs to start working out plans on furnishing the place with the most suited, exquisite, yet affordable pieces of furniture to suit the home needs. In a similar fashion, one needs to buy and decorate a desk with appropriate, suitable, and compatible desk sets. Desk sets are set of desk accessories like desk pad, cup holders, pen cups, card holders, memo holders, and letter openers that are an essential part of the office furniture. The same articles can also be used for the home office needs of a remote working person. These items, even if they seem insignificant and small, play a very important role to help a person better organize the activities involved with professional duties.

These desk accessories are available mostly as a set so as to be compatible with each other in their color, material, look and feel. There are many manufacturers that study the needs of executives and come up with different combination of desk sets. Consequently, desk sets with three, five or more items are available in the market. Some even include waste baskets that go along with the size, shape and color of the other items.

It is always a challenge to know what item to gift to your family members. It is more challenging to find gifts for someone who happens to be your colleague or fellow employee. One needs to buy gifts that have a reasonable use, also serve a purpose within the office, possibly to enhance a person's productivity. Desk sets make excellent gift items for office purposes. They can be provided as corporate gifts to executives and sometimes even to clients.

In such cases where the desk sets are used as gifts, the company name or logo is normally embossed on the desk sets to make them more attractive and also as a way to remember them in later years. Gift registries and wish lists are available to make the task of giving and receiving gifts easier. These lists will be available in selected stores or on websites where anyone who is planning to buy gifts for a person can see their interests and buy appropriate gifts. Gift registries ensure that the gifts don't end up being wasted by the receiver

The articles in the desk sets are normally made of leather. Some of the boxes and holders are made of wood or metal. Desk pads come in a variety of materials like leather - black and tan leather, even crocodile leather. Rosewood is normally used to make the wooded boxes and holders. Marble is sometimes used to give them a different look. Exclusive and special desk sets are even made of twenty four carat gold or chrome metal. They come in a variety of price ranges.
