Whether it’s at home, on vacation, or at your office, the basic essentials you need at all times vary from place to place. Today, we’re focusing on the latter—the office (or your desk). From spare shoes to a stain remover, we’ve narrowed down the 11 items you should never be without because you never know when you’ll be in pinch!

If by the middle (or hopefully end) of the day you simply can't take walking in your heels anymore, it's often wiser to change into chic yet comfortable flats than to appear to struggle in your shoes.
You WILL need this, and in the off-chance you don't, someone in your office will, in which case you can be the hero who saves the day.
Last-minute photo op? A spare pair of sunglasses can save you in the most unexpected ways.
If the smell of your lunch is lingering around you and your desk, you'll want to have some kind of scented spray on hand before walking into your next meeting.
Any card you put your name on is a representation of yourself, so you always want chic stationery on hand for those office birthdays, thank-you notes, last-minute gifts, and more.
Belt? Hair tie? Choker? The uses are endless—especially when your outfit needs a little extra something.
Arguably the most important item on this list, a lint roller is essential because being covered in lint can instantly ruin an otherwise pristine look.
Pick your poison! Whichever you prefer, you should always have the one makeup item that makes you look (and feel) more put together. In case you can't decide, this Benefit product is actually a two-in-one!
Whether you forgot to dress up for an important meeting or the heels you have been wearing all day are starting to kill your feet, having a spare pair of heels in your drawer will come in handy more often than you think.
Scarves are an easy accessory that can not only keep you warm if you forgot a layer or two but also add an interesting touch to an otherwise lacking outfit.
Because a good look starts at your hair—literally.
