For The Office

At Best Online Shopping, we tend to put an emphasis on the opportunities that can be found by utilizing the Internet for your home shopping needs. You might be a bit surprised to find an article on our site talking about finding the perfect office idea while looking through a magazine. However, keep in mind that fashion is not just about wardrobe, and that there are many paths to a purchase. If you work in an office, you might find just the thing to spruce up your work space while flipping through a magazine. Let's take a look at where these little gems might be hidden.


The places the magazine wants you to look for these complementary pieces are, of course, on the advertisements page. It can't get much more obvious than a full page glossy clearly highlighting the brightening effect a hardwood desk can have on your office space for rent in Toronto.

Magazines have become a lot more sophisticated in their approach to advertising over the last decade and it is no longer a matter of seeing just the obvious advertisements. Many of the higher end magazines have foregone the ad-every-four-pages approach in favour of advertisements worked into stories; it's a lot like product placement in a movie. For example, you will be reading a story about health care in and the photo captions might explain where one can purchase the scrubs the subject is wearing.

Most of the time, magazine advertisements of any type will include a link to the distributor's web site. That means despite the print nature of the ad, ordering online is still a possibility!


Direct advertising within a story is one way to find office gift ideas, but stories can benefit the incisive shopper even further. You don't have to have a product directly advertised in order for it to get your attention. You could be reading an article about the developer of a new high rise building, the latest in new condominium designs. Often, magazines will include photos of these pioneers in their offices, at home, and so on. What better way to see what the forward minded are wearing or decorating their offices with than in these pictures?

It will take a little bit more work, but you will be able to find the brand and style of anything which catches your eye in the pages of a magazine. If it's not directly advertised, your first query should be directed to the magazine. Send off an email or check out their website to see if you can get the specifics on that piece of furniture or accessory.

Anyone who spends a lot of time in their office knows there is more to the space than pictures on the walls and basic furnishings. You spend a good portion of your life there, and you want it to have as much of a personal touch as possible. Keeping your eyes open all the time for office furniture, decorations, and touch ups will mean you find possibilities everywhere.
