Take your notes into the third dimension with Origami Sticky Notes ($4). Each pad of notes has printed instructions on each sheet, letting you (or your co-workers) build one of ten different origami shapes. Just the way to battle post-holiday dullness at the office.
The ultimate geek pin-up calendar is back for the third year in a row. The Nerdcore 2009 Calendar ($25) includes plenty more oversized adult sci-fi-themed photography, along with plenty of important dates, including both regular holidays and nerdy events like Comic-Con, movie releases, anniversaries for major franchises, and more.
Just like your mattress, your pillow has a big effect on the quality of your sleep. And just like their comfortable mattress, the Casper Pillow is designed to make sure you rest well. It provides both comfort and support regardless of your sleeping position, with a firm inner core and a softer outer shell. Essentially it's a pillow within a pillow. It also won't pancake or lose shape thanks to the silky fibers it was constructed with, and is finished with breathable percale cotton to keep things cool. Take advantage of the 100 night trial and if you don't love it, Casper will give you a free refund.

A trustworthy duffle bag should do way more than just carry your stuff. It should protect it. Which means it should be incredibly tough and reliable, like the Best Made Co. Roll Top Duffle Bag. It's made using 1000 Denier Cordura — fabric so tough it's been a staple for the military for decades. It's also lined in 100% cotton twill with straps that are densely woven and adjustable for durability and extra strength. The Cordura is naturally resistant to water, but the polyurethane coated lining offers another heavy-duty liquid barrier, while taped zippers provide a third water-tight seal. Available in black or olive, and in 50L or 100L sizes. The Roll Top Duffle is built to last — whether you need it for a weekend trip or have to live out of it for a month.

From the makers of the badass, retina-scorching SureFire flashlights comes the SureFire Pen ($125).

It also comes with a Schmidt Technology easyFLOW ink cartridge, but can use nearly any ink cartridge with a simple adjustment. A virtually indestructible pen that performs great and breaks glass: What more could you ask for?
