Office survival kits

The office first aid box is all well and good for a nasty paper cut - but it's not much use at 7:56pm when your client emails back with "just a few small changes". For such an eventuality, you'll be needing one of Phoenix's superb Survival Kits.

The creative studio have devised three kits for every possible desk-bound emergency: Overtime, Presentation and Power Outage.

Overtime is for the all-nighter - a 150g pouch of Colombian coffee, a hip flask (empty, unfortunately), USB mixtape, stress ball, headphones, peanut butter energy bars, Paul Wilson's Little Book of Calm and an appropriately blunt badge.

Presentation is our particular favourite - four pencils, two fetching bowties, laser pointer and accompanying USB stick, hand sanitiser (no one wants a sweaty post-presentation hand shake), antiperspirant, Moleskin notebooks, book on the Art of Convincing and affirming badge.

Power Outage is a far more whimsical box - a card deck and harmonica provide some time-killing entertainment, while candles, matches, torch, woolly socks and thermal blanket help you stay comfortable. A suitably calming badge and Jack London's Call of the Wild will help matters further.

You can't buy the boxes, but rather request them from the Phoenix's hugely attractive business-courting page.
