    1. A Bluetooth sleep headband with built-in speakers for the side-sleepers who need music, white noise, meditation or other audio to fall asleep, but can't stand uncomfy earbuds digging in (I feel your pain). With this, you'll get a restful night's sleep and wake up ready to be super productive!

    2. A mini desktop vacuum cleaner so you can keep your workspace clean. I don't know about you, but I find a dirty desk super distracting (and also just icky!).

    3. A night-light sound machine that new parents can program according to a specific rest/wake schedule, thereby helping your little one become sleep trained...which means you might once again have the energy to get stuff done during the day!

    4. A robot vacuum and mop that you can schedule to clean the floors every day. In other words, this is how you outsource your chores to achieve maximum efficiency.

    5. An Instant Pot to make cooking fast and fun — even for those who really hate cooking. This thing can pressure cook, slow cook, steam, sauté, brown, and warm, thus letting you make delish meals without investing tons of time or energy. Win-win!

    6. An adjustable laptop stand to give your neck a break without necessarily going all-out with a standing desk. This also works as a cookbook holder, too. Whether you're in the office or kitchen, this will give you the ~optimal~ setup for being productive.

    7. A handheld vacuum sealer because you'll feel more efficient knowing you're preserving frozen foods, leftovers, fresh produce and more for weeks to come!

    8. A motivational time-marked half-gallon water bottle if you struggle with staying hydrated. Remembering to drink water can be the first thing to go when you're on a super intense work streak, but this will keep all your goals on track.

    9. A Revlon 2-in-1 hairstyling tool that dries hair while simultaneously straightening, smoothing and adding a bit of volume, thus giving you the "I'm-ready-to-crush-it" confidence that comes with a sleek hairdo in half the time.

    10. A portable charging bank since it's tough to get things done on the go when your devices die. With this, you can quickly power up your phone or laptop to crank out that work assignment or make that important phone call.

    11. A Method daily shower spray since just a few spritzes of this every time you shower will keep the soap scum and hard water stains at bay, meaning you'll have to clean the tub way less often. My mom stationed these in all of our bathrooms growing up, and clearly it worked well because she'd always know if one of us (*cough cough* my brother) wasn't using it regularly. Apparently, it made the shower a lot harder to clean. 😬

    12. A Keurig machine so you can make your morning coffee routine as efficient as possible. Just pop in a K-Cup and press the button. While it's brewing, you can get your lunch all packed up, and before you know it, you'll be perking yourself up for a caffeinated, productive day.

    13. A magnetic to-do list notepad so you can list out the day's priorities, appointments and tasks, and even track meals and hydration. Then just rip off the top page to start again tomorrow!

    14. A pair of blue-light-filtering glasses for anyone who tends to get a mid-afternoon headache from staring at the screen too long. These can potentially reduce eye strain and even sleep disruption brought on by blue light. Plus, they're pretty stylish. Just saying.

    15. An essential oil diffuser because aromatherapy isn't just for relaxing, it's also great for energizing your mind and body. Pro tip: try a eucalyptus oil for a stimulating brain boost.

    16. An electric-powered adjustable standing desk so you can switch things up to keep the blood flowing and the good ideas coming. Work standing up for a bit, sit down, stretch, stand up again, and so on!

    17. An Apple watch SE that just might help you stay on track when it comes to your fitness and health goals. Tracking my workouts/daily steps and working towards closing my rings each day is sometimes just the kick of motivation I need to move my body.

    18. A Nutribullet because after you whip up a delicious and healthy smoothie in this personal-sized blender, you can just flip over the blending cup, add the drinking lid, and enjoy — no need to dirty another cup. Basically just grab and go!

    19. A pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones so you can tune out any distracting sounds whenever you need to focus. And since they have a battery life of 24 hours, you needn't worry about them dying and disrupting your ~flow state.~

    20. A foldable bamboo desk tray with a built-in adjustable laptop stand so you can transform your couch or bed into your WFH office space. What could be more practical than being cozy while you work? Nothing, if you ask me.

    21. A powerful, handheld turbo garment steamer that's a whole lot faster than ironing. Just a 40-second charge period provides up to 20 minutes of steam time, which means you'll have wrinkle-free clothes in no time and be ready to crush the work day.

    22. A pair of sweat-resistant Bose wireless sport earbuds since they'll actually stay put while you're exercising. 🙌 Nothing ruins the groove of a workout like constantly having to stop and adjust your headphones/music.

    23. A portable UV sanitizing case to disinfect your phone while also keeping it conveniently out of sight so you can stay focused on work. And as an extra reward for putting it away, you can use the aromatherapy feature to infuse your device with the scent of essential oils.

    24. A budget planner that will make tracking your daily, weekly and monthly spending an absolute piece of cake. Now you can spend less time stressing about financial planning and more time making the moola and spending it efficiently.

    25. A mini egg cooker because breakfast is the most important meal of a productive day. What could be better than a handy and egg-stremely efficient device to quickly cook up omelets and boil or poach eggs?

    26. A memory foam lumbar support pillow because it's hard to focus when all you can think is "omg my back hurts so badly right now." Not only will you get more done at the office, but you'll also be able to actually do more than just rest on the couch once you're home.

    27. A Wi-Fi range extender because we live in the digital age, which means you're only as efficient as your Wi-Fi signal – and this will make sure you get a strong signal in every nook and cranny of the house.

    28. A Tile Bluetooth-enabled tracking device if you're done with wasting all that time each week searching for your lost — sorry, I mean misplaced — keys or phone. Best of all, the tracking works both ways: you can make the Tile ring from your phone, but you can also press the button on the Tile to make your phone ring!!

    29. A hanging door sign that will remind your office mates (which could include pesky family members or roommates) not to enter the room and disrupt your Zoom meeting. Although, I suppose you don't actually need to be in a meeting to use this, so long as everyone thinks you're in a meeting, you'll get peace and quiet...hehe.

    30. A mesh organizer with three slide-out drawers to keep all your pens, paper clips, files and other important office supplies neat and tidy instead of cluttering up the workspace. Not to mention, you won't have to waste all that time digging around for something when you need it.

    31. A Google Nest smart thermostat to ensure that you heat and cool your home as efficiently as possible. The smart settings adjust when you're away, so you're not heating or cooling an empty house, and you can change the temperature remotely from the app!

    32. A pet hair remover to clean up all that distracting fur that's all over your home with just a few easy swipes. Plus, you won't even have to bother with replacement sticky tapes or adhesives. So simple, yet so effective!
