This desk mat by #Upcity is really nice. It's leather and is perfect to use as a blotter to protect your desk from water damage. It's large enough to fit my laptop, mouse and extra keyboard. Looks terrific and nobody would ever know it only costs $!5.99 . It comes in many colors and color combinations but I truly prefer the basics and so chose black as my option! Makes a great gift for anyone you know who has or is starting to setup a home office, or for a student at college!
