Plantronics makes both bluetooth headsets and bluetooth lifters/adapters 
for a typical office desk phone. A lifter is a device that lifts your 
handset of your desk phone to activate it for the bluetooth.

They also sell one of the few (the only?) bluetooth headsets that can be 
paired with mutiple phones at the same time - so you can use the same 
headset with your cellphone and you office phone.  Most can only be 
paired with 1 phone at a time so you would need to go through the setup 
procedure each time you wanted to switch devices, or keep 2 headsets 
with you.

Anyway, a good place to look.  Plantronics has been a big name if office 
headsets for quite a long time, and their bluetooth stuff seems to also 
be very good quality.
