This black leather coin purse will help you secure your keys and money. It's available in brown and red colors as well. $20, Letter Perfect, 384 University Ave., Palo Alto

From coupons to letters from loved ones, keep all the mail in one place with this wall-mounted mail basket. $35, Harvest Furniture, 639 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park

Organization and fun collide in this 480-page pack of sticky notes. Each piece, whether tiny tab or long list, features a "fantastical" animal — think whale, zebra and dodo bird. $12.95, Books Inc., 301 Castro St., Mountain View

This sycamore desk puts nature at your finger tips, literally. The rare wood sits upon a chevron fin base that is made of plate steel with a hand-applied glaze.
