Random text files can get deleted, sticky notes can go missing, but the chances that this ceramic elephant disappears from your desk are slim—who would dare steal such a thing? And that's why it makes for the perfect spot to quickly jot notes and things that need remembering. Well, that and it functions like an erasable whiteboard.
Sticky Notes might be cheaper, but are they as adorable as Eric The Memo Elephant? Not even close. And for $40 (£24), he even comes with a dry erase marker that he holds in his trunk, a trick a Post-It Note will never master. [Animi Causa]
