As you move back to campus, you’re probably stoked to see your friends again and eat all the great food in your college town—but buying a bunch of pens and paper clips? That sounds much less exciting. But we're here to help make shopping for desk supplies fun with these adorable (and sassy!) essentials

1. Gel Yeah Gel Pen Set Glitter

Turn up the sass in class with this awesome pen set ($12 at Ban.Do).

2. Personalized Laptop Sleeve

A laptop case with your name on it ($20.38+ at Etsy) might be just the motivation you need to start writing that paper.

3. Bling Folders

Store all your old assignments and FAFSA paperwork in these stylish folders ($1.59 each at Office Depot). We recommend throwing a quick pic of Ryan Gosling in there as well—you know, for good measure.

4. Pineapple Cup Desk Organizer

This pencil organizer ($14 at Urban Outfitters) will make your desk look that much trendier.

5. She Is... Pencil Set

Okay, these pencils ($16.95 at Miss Poppy Design) are both super cute and super feminist, so we’re going to go ahead and take that as a sign that we need to buy them ASAP. We love all the different things they say!

6. Alma Otter Tape Dispenser

We guarantee that this tape dispenser ($15 at ModCloth) will turn your stress levels all the way down.

7. Expletive Paper Clips

These paper clips ($10 at Kate Spade) accurately describe how you feel while doing those assignments, but at least you get to make them look cute once you’re done!

9. Thank You Notes

Notecards like these beautiful ones ($16 for eight at Rifle Paper Co.) are such a great thing to have on hand in college. You never know when you’ll need to write a thank you note to a professor, mentor or job interviewer—or even your roommate for cleaning your dorm.

10. Patterned Erasers

These erasers ($11 at Kate Spade) are probably (definitely?) too pretty to use, but decorations still count as an essential, right?
