Can I connect my laptop to my desktop to retrieve files?

I need to transfer files off of my desktop's hard drive, to my laptop. My desktop monitor is no longer working and I haven't the funds to fix the cause. There are very important files I would like to retrieve from the hard drive, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Any tips, please? :)
