Lustables: XO Hole Puncher

Punch, drunk, love.

If paper punching is a must at your office, punch with love. Or punch for that crush. Punch because you care. Lovebomb the daisies out of your office supplies because what else are you going to do all day?

This recyclable metal red-hot hole puncher from Suck UK ($16) is sure to spice up the mood in any corporate setting, adding vim and vigor you didn’t even know you had for paperwork.

It might not be the most professional way to present a report (granted), but it sure beats an emoticon.

While other co-workers waste Post-Its on passive aggressive missives about all things HVAC, you can collect the heart-shaped pellets that remain to perk up a forlorn cubbie mate by sprinkling them across his or her desk, add last minute confetti to a cupcake-fueled office party, or bail out a co-worker who forgot to shower his wife in rose petals on the morning of their wedding anniversary. Who can resist heart-shaped ledger paper?

This Valentine’s Day, don’t be a square peg. Or even a round stub. Holepunch with heart.

Suck UK was started by two friends in a North London kitchen. They were sadly evicted (insert frown-shaped hole punch) but started up again in East London, building a network of suppliers, manufacturers and designers from around the world. Blending a keen sense of humor with practicality, they have officially earned their most frequently used adjective: quirky. Their aim is to produce goods efficiently to reduce waste, packaged in fully recyclable containers.
