1. A bamboo two-tier monitor stand that not only brings their computer to a better height (to help you avoid neck and eye strain), but also has convenient storage space for the random things on their desk.

2. Or an adjustable wood shelf to put next to their computer and keep any books or materials they need (or just want) close by and at the ready.

3. A storm cloud weather predictor with crystals inside that react to different weather conditions, so not only will it look really nice sitting on their desk, but it will also keep them updated on what's happening outside, so they know if they can take that lunch break walk or not.

4. A USB-powered cooling pad for anyone whose laptop starts to sounds like a plane is taking off after working for, oh, approximately five minutes. This gadget has three fans in it to keep their computer calm, cool, and collected, so they can get their work done without much of a hassle.

5. A set of gold cable organizers for organizing all the cords on their desk so they don't have to spend 10 minutes fishing out their computer charging cord that fell behind their desk...again. Plus, this gold style won't stick out like a sore thumb among the other thing on their desk.

6. A wall charger with six outlets *and* two USB fast-charging ports to keep all of their devices and accessories at 100%, and from dying in the middle of their important team meeting.

7. A small and cool color-changing diffuser they can use with essential oils to help reduce the stress that comes with working a 9 to 5 (or whatever hours their job is).

8. A Rocketbook smart-reusable notebook that takes their handwritten notes and makes them digital so when their boss asks for a recap of that meeting in their one-on-one, they can send it as an attachment and look super on top of everything, which *may lead to them getting that raise/promotion they've been wanting...all because of this great gift.

9. An all-in-one desk organizer "vault" filled with a ton of different compartments, drawers, and pockets they can fill with whatever is covering their desk. It folds up easily so they can put it out of sight and mind once Friday at 5 p.m. rolls around.

10. A sport-brella designed with SPF 50+ and a universal clamp, so it's actually a really great way for them to be able to work outside in the warmer months without their laptop overheating and the sun making it nearly impossible to see the screen.

11. A glass dry-erase desktop whiteboard they can write their important reminders and "I CAN'T FORGET" notes on instead of using scraps of paper that end up getting lost approximately 30 seconds later.

12. An adjustable standing desk because if they've been working from home since March 2020 (or earlier) and haven't invested in a good desk, they'll be so very thankful to finally have an actual space to get their work done. This baby is well worth it. Not only can they customize the height (and move it up and down during the day as they please), but it can hold up to 275 pounds, is water and scratch-resistant, and has an included cable tray to keep your desk free and clear of cords.

13. Or a standing desk converter if they already have a great workspace but want to be able to turn it into a standing desk throughout the day and make the workspace work from them.

14. A Takeya cold brew maker so they can easily pour themselves a glass at 3 p.m. when they normally might have taken a trip to the nearest coffee shop.

15. A folding wall organizer they can put all their important documents in and then grab when needed, instead of searching through that pile that's been sitting on their desk for wayyy too long.

16. A pastel mug warmer that regulates the temperature of their coffee or tea so they can nurse their drink for hours without sipping an ice-cold beverage.

17. A privacy sign great for anyone working from a full house where people like to barge in even when the door is closed.

18. A memory foam chair cushion with a nonslip rubber bottom to ensure they'll be comfortable all day long — it won't move around when they get up every once and a while to stretch their legs (and maybe pet their dog).

19. A multi-device wireless charger with a simple and sleek design that's actually really practical because they can charge their phone and headphones at the same time so neither die during that extra-long meeting they're in (that could have totally been an email).

20. A selfie ring light for anyone who has found themselves working in less-than-ideal lighting during a marathon of Zoom calls. This small device will make a big difference so everyone can see their beautiful face.

21. A velvet open-back office chair that'll not only add a sleek and sophisticated look to their office but also be a comfortable place for them to sit for eight hours a day.

22. A mesh desk organizer with a three-compartment sliding drawer, tray, and five upright sections designed to fit SO much more than they think it can and make their desk feel clean (for once!).

23. Or a leather desk mat organizer elegantly enabling them to stay ~on top~ of their work. Not only does it have an extra layer they can store documents in, but it also has a divot to fit small things, such as pencils and USB drives, *and* a magnetic holder to keep a cord in place.

24. A two-tier folding desk perfect for anyone who doesn't have a ton of room for a desk but still wants a designated workspace. Bonus: This one can be folded up and stashed away easily after the workweek is over.

25. Or a lap desk if they don't have space for a desk at all. Or just want an option that lets them take their desk from the couch to the bed and back again. This one basically has all the cool features — a built-in mouse and wrist pad as well as a phone and tablet holder.

26. A daily planner to help them really get down to business and focus on what they need to accomplish every day. It has a place for their top priorities, to-do list, appointments, health and fitness, meal planning, accomplishments, and even a place to doodle during their longest meeting. So essentially this will be your new assistant.

27. A soundproofing strip to help block out all the surrounding noise so their coworkers can actually hear them speak instead of just the neighbor's dog barking.

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

29. A laptop stand to take their productivity to ~new heights~. JK, we can't guarantee it will do that, but it will help improve their posture and make it so they're not straining their eyes as much. Both will help them feel better at the end of the day.

30. A cord box to transform that tangled mess of wires into a nice orderly setup. Their desk will feel less cluttered so they can breathe a little easier.

31. A sunlamp designed to mimic the benefits of sunlight to improve their mood and reset their circadian rhythm, which is beneficial if they work off hours or just can't seem to find time to get outside.

32. A double-sided electronics cleaning brush that'll give their computer a good deep clean because when they work where they live, sometimes their laptop becomes a movie screen at night where a few popcorn crumbs somehow get into the keyboard. 🤷🏻‍♀️

33. A portable dual monitor for anyone who didn't realize they'd be working from home this long and misses their dual screens dearly. This device attaches to their laptop so they have double the space to spread out their work. Plus, they can easily move it from room to room or on a trip where they're "working" remotely from a different place.

34. A reversible waterproof desk mat they can put on your table if they really have no place at all for a desk so they can at least make it feel like they're working from one.

35. Or a large patterned version if they prefer to add a little more spunk to their workspace but also protect the area and make it easier to use a mouse.
