You spend the majority of your week at your desk, and as with any space you frequent (your room, your car, etc.), it’s natural to want to incorporate your personality into its setup.

During the rest of the year, you might focus more on optimizing the comfort and productivity of your work desk by getting a supportive seat cushion or a small tabletop plant.

Come holiday season, however, you can have some fun with small and festive desk decorations. Whether you’re a Christmas fanatic who starts humming holiday tunes right after Halloween or a casual participant who enjoys a subtle reminder that Christmas is coming up, you’ll be able to dress up a boring desk with these 16 pieces of decor.

Since Christmas only comes once a year, you don’t need to splurge heavily on decorations. Everything below costs less than $50, so you’ll still have enough in your holiday budget to buy gifts and a Christmas tree.
