    West Elm

    7. A task lamp that'll provide that a much-needed boost of light during those late-night sessions. Increasing your laptop to its highest brightness setting is not the solution.


    This lamp also has a USB port on its base!

    Promising review: "This lamp is exactly what I wanted. I love the matte black and bronze finishes, the adjustable height/angle of the light direction, the LED bulb, and the USB port on the base. The picture doesn't do it enough justice. It looks great on my wooden desk." —Christy

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (also available as a floor lamp).

    10. A mini retro fan to cool you on the days when your office feels like a sweltering 100 degrees.

    Promising review: "This is a perfect size for my desk at work. It sits right next to my monitor. It has two speeds. I've used both, but the lowest setting blows plenty of air. It's more powerful than I anticipated, which is a good thing, and it's quiet enough that I don't have to turn it off when I meet with a client." —M. C. Willis

    Get it from Amazon for $29.94+ (available in six styles).

    11. And for the days when the office is an ice box, this little heater will keep you toasty warm from your head to your toes.


    This little heater is temperature-adjustable with three settings: high, low, and fan only. It has a built-in overheating protector so you don't have to worry about it well, bursting into flames.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect heater. I love that it shuts down on its own when the room reaches a certain temperature. Also, if it falls or gets hit hard, it turns off. It's a great fireproof unit." —My Lingo's JavaScript

    Get it from Amazon for $27.84+ (available in two colors).

    12. A ladybug desktop vacuum so you can eat lunch at your desk without worrying about leaving behind crumbs. This little guy will make cleanup oh so easy!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    13. A mini Crock-Pot to heat your food right at the comfort of your own desk. Say goodbye to waiting on that microwave line!


    This Crock-Pot has a lid for easy travel and is dishwasher-safe. Its 20-ounce capacity is the perfect single person serving. Also to make sure you avoid burns, the outside of the pot doesn't get hot while warming your food.

    Promising review: "The line at the work microwave can be long, so I bought this. I was concerned when it said to start it much earlier than meal time to heat up, but it got hot fast. In about 30 minutes my canned soup was hot. I set it up and plugged it in while I got ready for lunch. It was ready by the time I finished updating my calendar and emails, and cleared my desk for lunch. I can pack it before I leave for work with leftovers, or heat up a canned meal. Sometimes I buy bagged frozen meals and divide them up over several servings. This would work well for heating those up too." —Wes B.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.86+ (available in four colors).

    14. Adhesive cable clips that'll tame that wire jungle you're currently experiencing on and underneath your desk.


    Get them from Amazon for $8.87+ (available in two colors) and check out these magnetic cable clips for a sleeker look.

    15. A cactus humidifier so you can combat that dry as heck office air that seems to exist at every job.


    This mini cactus is USB-powered and will run for four hours before shutting off.

    Promising review: "This little thing did wonders for my skin in my office. I'm right next to a window so I often have to run my space heater, which dries the daylights out of my skin. This thing is easy to set up, well worth the money, and super cute. My eyes and nose stay moisturized and my skin looks better than it ever does in the winter. It's made for small spaces, so make sure you're within a foot or two of the mist so you can benefit fully." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.89+ (available in seven styles).

    16. A standing clipboard to display photos or important to-do reminders. Whichever is more important to you.

    Get it from The Heart Department Co. on Etsy for $29.50. Get a similar style on Amazon for $14.06 (available in three colors).

    17. An under-the-desk mount that'll keep your prized headphones tucked away when you don't need them to drown out the sounds of your neighbors loudly chewing.


    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in two versions).

    18. And speaking of headphones, these noise-cancelling headphones are comfy, have good overall sound, and won't break the bank.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Get them from Amazon for $99.

    19. A gel seat cushion for more support because we all know sitting upright for eight hours a day is actually not very comfortable.

    Promising review: "I really like this product. I was hesitant to order this online without touching it, but went ahead and bought it anyway. Sitting on it helps tremendously, giving me support everywhere I need it and taking pressure off where I don't (lumbar and sacroiliac joint). I work remotely from home and sit eight hours a day which is difficult. This cushion has been GREAT so I can sit for long stretches without my back being in severe pain." —LoraKittles

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95 and get the back pillow for $23.95.

    20. Memory foam armrest pads that'll provide a little cushion in an unsuspecting place.

    Promising review: "I have a desk chair that I live in at work that I have tried various configurations on the arms to keep from bruising my elbows. Nothing has been much help. I am very glad that I gave this a try! The covers are super-soft, and the memory foam works extremely well. I have only had the covers in use for a week, but already I can feel a difference. This is a product that will continue to be appreciated by my elbows." —Der Dachsy

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three colors).

    21. Succulents to bring a bit of green to your space without over-committing to a plant that will need constant love and attention.

    The Home Depot

    These Haworthia succulents are super cute and incredibly easy to care for. I have a few in my apartment, and I only have to water them every other week. They also love sunlight, so placing them near a window is best.

    Get a pack of three from The Home Depot for $19.99.

    22. If you're in need of some adorable planters for said succulents, look no further! These felt planters will put a smile on your face each and every day.


    These are a ton of animals and styles to choose from and a lots of yarn color options!

    Get them from Amazon: the owl for $30.49, the koala for $29.49, and the fox for $29.49

    23. And if you're someone whose brown thumb is afraid of succulents (hey, no judgement), then these faux-cacti may be more your speed.

    The Apollo Box

    I have one of these succulents on my desk and you'd never be able to tell it's fake. It looks so incredibly real! It's beautifully detailed and the perfect accessory to liven up your space. And you never have to water it.

    Get it from The Apollo Box for $18.98+ (available in 15 styles).

    24. A beautiful blush globe to show off your design flair because plain, boring desks are a thing of the past. It's time to make a style statement, people!

    Cost Plus World Market

    Get it from Cost Plus World Market for $19.99.

    25. A fidget tool — it'll help you work out any stress or anxiety you may be feeling before a big meeting.


    This fidget is super tiny, so it won't draw attention when using it around others.

    Promising review: "I am an adult with anxiety and I fidget, usually with pens but this gadget is preferable to pens and has the benefit of not driving my co-workers nuts. To play with this toy, you can 'roll' it by rotating the links end over end, over and over in your hand, which is soothing. You can also grip just one of the links and shake it, flipping it back and forth, making a nice rattling sound. The best thing about the flippy chain is that it is small and flat and slips easily into a pocket." —Kara Stenberg

    Get one from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four colors and as a set of two).

    26. A caffeinated energy bar to help you survive that afternoon lull everyone experiences.


    These bars are like drinking a cup of coffee, but can be stored in your desk drawer or easily carried when on-the-go.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three flavors).

    27. If that isn't enough caffeine to get your blood pumping, then you're definitely gonna need a mug to enjoy your daily cup of morning joe.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $16.

    28. And to keep that cup of morning joe hot past five minutes, you'll need this convenient mug warmer. No more getting up from your desk to reheat lukewarm coffee!


    Promising review: "I have a bad habit of getting myself coffee, then getting so wrapped up in what I'm doing (or getting pulled into meetings), that my coffee goes cold on me and becomes undrinkable. Now I can keep it safely on the warmer and not have to get a new cup every half hour. I hated the waste. Now my coffee is kept comfortably warm for hours and hours. It's also very safe, thankfully." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    29. A classic soft cover Moleskine weekly planner so you can record all your upcoming appointments, dinner plans, and events.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.93+ (available in three colors and three sizes), or check out a hardcover Moleskine notebook from Barnes & Noble for $11.47.

    30. Or a Rifle Paper Co. planner with a lovely floral design on the front cover. This is also a weekly planner with monthly grids incorporated so you'll be able to keep track of your busy schedule. Who said planning something weeks in advance wasn't riveting?!?!


    This planner also features a pocket folder, coated tabs, inspirational quotes, and gold-foiled accents.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.

    31. A punny water bottle with time stamps because actually staying on track with your hydration schedule is way harder than it should be.

    This bottle holds up to 24 ounces!

    Get it from The Rusty Cowgirl Shop on Etsy for $13.50.

    32. Incredibly cute cat pens that'll make taking notes in your next meeting less of a chore.


    Get six from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in a set of twelve or as dogs).

    33. Blue light–blocking glasses for reducing digital eye strain. If you sit in front of a computer for hours on end, then these are for you! They can leave your eyes feeling less dry and tired.

    Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed

    Check out our review of the blue light–blocking glasses here!

    Promising review: "Everyone knows from previous reviews that these glasses are unique and high fashion. I wanted to add that they do indeed block blue light. I am a graduate student and look at computer screens, iPad screens, and Powerpoint presentations all day. My eyes feel less dry and less tired at the end of the day. I used a blue light filtering testing kit that came with a different pair of glasses and these passed. The glasses are on the heavy side but comfortable and have a solid, un-cheap feel." —SSMax

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three styles).

    34. And for your new glasses, this eyeglasses holder will keep them safe and provide a home when not in use. The soft lining prevents scratches.

    This holder fits most standard-sized glasses and sunglasses.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    35. A cleaning goo for use on your keyboard, mouse, USB ports, cell phone, and desk. It'll pull dirt and dust from crevices like no other.


    Promising review: "This is my go-to for cleaning the junk out of my cellphone speakers and charge ports, keyboards, and laptops. It lasts forever and is worth every penny. Don’t waste your time with canned air or a brush." —Matthew Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    36. A phone stand can keep your most important device always within arm's reach.

    This stand is compatible with iPhones, Androids, Notes, Sony devices, and Nexus devices (with our without cases). It will sturdily keep your phone in place.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four colors).

    37. And finally, a "break glass in case of emergency" box where you can stash your desired vice. Maybe that's a chocolate bar and maybe that's a mini bottle of tequila. We all have tough days at work.

    These boxes can be made with different text and in different colors. The hammer is for decorative use only. The glass is sealed down, but can be opened.

    Get it from Clever by Hayley on Etsy for $30+ (available in the classic red or customized).
