OK -- so, a toothbrush doesn't sound like much of an accessory. But your winning smile, fresh breath and pleasant man-scent certainly are. And let's face it -- going to an important meeting with garlic breath, spinach caught in your teeth and B.O. doesn't make the best impression.

Therefore, we recommend you put together a small toiletry bag containing the following: toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, mouthwash, dental floss and cologne (if that's your thing). Buy these items in travel sizes so they don't take up much room in your desk and can easily be tossed into your briefcase for any last-minute business meetings or trips. Some toothpaste brands even make tiny toothbrushes with the gel built right into the brush and a toothpick on the opposite end. You don't even need water. So handy!
