    35 Tech Products And Accessories For Anyone Who Works From Home

    Because hiring an assistant may not be in the budget, but Alexa is a closet second.

    1. A third-generation Echo Dot or, in other words, your new assistant because this little device can basically do it all. Yes, it can *takes deep breath* play music, make calls, send and receive text messages, answer your questions, read the news, remind you of things, and so much more.

    2. And a smart plug designed to work with your Amazon device (including the Echo Dot) so you can simply say, "Alexa, lights on" when you realize that you've been working so long that your natural-light-filled office has turned into a dark dungeon. You won't have to break your productivity streak to get up and turn those lights on.

    3. A mirror LED clock you can not only keep on your desk to help you keep track of time during during your long meetings but you can also use as a secret subtle mirror to make sure you don't have any everything seasoning stuck in your teeth after scarfing down a bagel right before the meeting started.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS CLOCK!!! The only improvement would be to have the date on there too. But other than that it’s going on my favorite Amazon purchases list. Such a good looking, sleek design, I keep it on the lower brightness which is perfect and if you need a BRIGHT view of time this clock is bright on that setting. Like the USB plug, I have it next to my desk computer set up for when I’m on Zoom and now can keep better awareness of time. I’m ordering another one for my office so just hope the clock will work for the long haul." —ANAGEV

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95 (available in eight colors). 

    4. A Wi-Fi extender capable of widening your coverage in all areas of your home so you'll stop cutting out during your video meetings.

    5. A webcam cover because working from home can be a lot, and sometimes you just need the privacy (and security) so your coworkers won't see you gobbling down your lunch during that meeting that def should have been an email.

    6. A hand warmer mouse pad for those days when it's just a tad bit chilly in your home and you don't have total control of the heat. Sure, you can put on more layers to keep the rest of you warm, but it's really hard to work while wearing gloves. Your hand will stay toasty inside this mouse pad, and the cute little cat will keep you company throughout the day (and maybe be more affectionate than your actual cat). 

    Promising review: "My wife works from home next to a north-facing window and even without the heating element on, she has been enjoying a warm hand. On extremely cold days, the heating element keeps her hand toasty. —Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98.

    7. A silicone charging stand to ensure that your AirPods case can charge while you work. Easily place them in the stand and know you won't hear that sad "doot-doot" sound of dead headphones when you have an hour to finish a task and need that 'Disney Power Hour' playlist on Spotify to help you focus and ~get down to business~.

    8. Or a 3-in-1 charging station for anyone who has the whole Apple lineup that needs to be charged. This fits an iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch at once — and is compact enough to not take up much space on your desk.

    9. A shortcut keyboard cover here to make it super easy for you to remember all the shortcuts for Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro X, and more so you don't have to have 50 Post-it Notes with every shortcut cluttering up your space.

    The set includes a wireless keyboard and a wireless mouse with a USB receiver. Pick up some AA batteries — both will need them!

    Promising review: "So, I just transitioned to work from home and wanted a cool keyboard for my new workspace. I tried two others, and they worked but I wasn’t 100% happy with the style, shape, nor color. A friend showed me her keyboard, and I fell in love with it. Her’s was the pink/colorful option. I immediately went on Amazon and found the purple/lilac colorful and ordered. I received it today, and I’m so pleased. I’m one of those who love hearing the click-clack sound of keys being hit with my nails and the weight of the keyboard is nice and heavy — it feels well made. I’m still getting use to the mouse it’s a wider shape then I’m use to, but it works and matches my keyboard. Now if only I could find a purple monitor, LOL. I highly recommend this keyboard. Happy typing!" —Kimberly Renee

    17. An Oxo double-ended laptop cleaning brush with a microfiber pad on one side to clean the dirty screen you've been staring at all day. Plus, it has a retractable brush on the other side to get in the keys to remove the dust and crumbs from your 3 p.m. snack that somehow found its way into your keyboard. Your computer will basically feel brand-new after this deep clean.

    18. A pair of Beats Powerbeats headphones to tune out any noise around you (whether you're at home or outside) so you can focus on your to-do list and not the barking dog.

    19. A portable monitor here to ~expand~ your working area and give you more space than your one tiny screen. It comes with a case that can act as a stand, but that also means you can take this with you if your WFH life also has you working from other places every once and a while.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy this monitor because I had never heard of the brand and am always a skeptic. I wanted a portable monitor for when I work from home. I also utilize this as a third monitor with my laptop and second monitor. I've had this product for almost a year and can only say great things. It works perfectly. It comes with a foldable case, which can double as a stand. It also comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable, a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable, and a power adapter (with a USB-A to USB-C cable). I couldn't have asked for a better portable monitor! Don't hesitate!" —A. C. Pham

    Promising review: "Best purchase I have made in years. Only had it two days, but the first words out of my mouth to my wife were, 'I can work for hours like this.' If you work from home and like to work on the couch, recliner, breakfast nook, patio, etc, and you have your computer in your lap, this is an absolute must-have. Not only does it keep your legs and lap cool, but it also keeps your computer cool and able to process much more efficiently." —Trent Thiel

    27. Or a clip-on style if you want something a little smaller you can easily take off your monitor after the meeting is over. It's designed with an anti-scratch metal clamp so it won't ruin your company computer you care SO much about.

    The light is powered via USB and has three light colors and 10 brightness levels.

    Promising review: "I don't have the best light in my living room. Working from home, I have had my fair share of Zoom and Skype meetings and without this light, my face was shaded no matter how hard I tried to get light. Now with the different shades of light as the day passes, I can change the light brightness and not look like I'm in a dungeon." —David and Paige

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    28. Some cable clips so you can organize all the cords you have and not spend 10 minutes fishing out your computer charging cord that fell behind your desk...again.
