The Scratch-n-Scroll Mousepad ($15) from Quirky uses the same concept as a child's toy. Use the included stylus — or even your finger — to write down important phone numbers, email addresses, or any other information you need to remember fast. To refresh the pad, just pull the semitransparent top sheet away from the base.

I've come across a bunch of cute, quirky mouse pads recently that also double as notepads; the problem with all of them, though, is that using them as notepads means you're tossing paper in the trash every time you want a fresh sheet.
