    These 35 Snazzy Products Will *Actually* Inspire You To Work In Your Home Office

    Your productivity level is about to go way up thanks to these improvements.

    1. A colorful wireless keyboard and mouse set to brighten up your space and, dare I say, actually make you excited about work!

    The USB receiver is what helps this keyboard-and-mouse duo work wirelessly (no Bluetooth needed). Simply insert it into your computer to connect!

    Promising reviews: "This is ADORABLE! I love, love, love everything about this keyboard. It’s satisfying to the touch and visually appealing. It’s easy to hook up (just some batteries and plug into your computer)! I love green, and it matches well with my room and desk setup." —Seba

    "I absolutely love this keyboard! It connects to your Mac/PC laptop with a USB piece and is operated by AA batteries. The keys really do feel like a typewriter, and I get all the nostalgia and fun of typing on a mechanic keyboard. 10/10." —Katherine Dinh

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    2. A wonderfully sleek electric standing desk for sitting and standing while you work. This is great if you want to change positions throughout the day without having to leave your desk entirely!

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Jenae Sitzes says: "I've been using the FlexiSpot Comhar EG8 standing desk for well over a year now, and I really can't recommend it enough if you're ready to invest in a high-quality standing desk. I have the white desk with a glass top, and it looks super modern and elegant in my living room. There's a thin drawer in the front — you won't be storing anything super thick in there, but it's great for putting papers, Post-its, and other small items out of the way. 

    The actual standing desk feature works like a charm — since it's just me using this desk, I only use two of the four height presets: one for my sitting position, and one for my standing position. An anti-collision feature is also built in, meaning the desk will stop moving if it detects an obstacle in its way. I've found this feature can be a little hit or miss, so it's best to keep the area clear and just be attentive as it moves up and down. The child lock is *particularly* handy — I don't have kids around, but it's easy to bump into the control panel and accidentally activate the desk if you don't have this lock turned on."

    Promising review: "Super easy to assemble and the desk drawer is a game changer! Love that I can store random stuff underneath and that there are charging USB ports next to the settings too. So convenient- great for virtual teaching!" —Elizabeth Pak

    Get it from Amazon for $399.99+ (available in two sizes and five colors/styles).

    3. Or, for smaller spaces, a trendy faux-marble desk you'll get tons of compliments on whenever anyone visits your office. It has metal hairpin legs and two open storage cubbies for all your essentials.

    When your desk is *this* pretty, it becomes a statement piece of decor all on its own! Plus, another great thing about marble is that it's so versatile, really meshing well with most decor styles and aesthetics. 

    Promising review: "GET IT! I was looking for a desk to spice up my room and this is IT! It came pretty much assembled and all I did was attach the legs so it took about 30 minutes total from unpacking it to putting on the legs. Stunning piece and it is very sturdy. I love the way it compliments the room!!" —Emely

    Get it from Amazon for $85.66+ (available in three colors and three other styles).

    4. A vibrant 3D digital clock because if you're going to count down the minutes until 5 p.m., you might as well give your eyes a snazzy treat to look at. You can adjust the brightness and choose whether to hang it on the wall or set it on a surface!

    Promising review: "Love all the little features of this clock! To be honest, I thought it was just to display the time, but it comes with much more! It does well in my office and is large enough to see! Love that I can adjust the brightness as well! 10/10 would recommend!" —Nelly

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in three sizes and various colors).

    5. A laptop cooling pad so you can focus on your work without worrying about your computer catching fire. It's USB-powered with three cooling fans, so your laptop will be cool as a cucumber.

    Promising reviews: "This brand is excellent...I decided to try this brand based on reviews and absolutely wasn't disappointed. We've now had them for more than two years without fail. We have two 2-fan, and one 3-fan running a minimum of 12 hours daily and all we do is use a vacuum every two to three months and they're good to go. Their angle is perfect, cooling is above average, and dependability is nothing I ever expected. I can't think of any other brand I would consider at any price. More than two years, and all three are still running great!" —Rantasia

    "This works extremely well. My laptop's fans used to scream to the point it would make you scream into your microphone just to talk to your friends on discord. With this product that diminished, and I don’t have to worry about the fans kicking up that loud ever again...I fully recommend this product just as it was recommended to me by a friend with a similar laptop problem. I honestly don't ever see this product failing to support my demands."  —Kaleb Urquhart

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. A colorful memory foam wrist pad set when you're tired of stiff, painful wrists after clicking and typing all day. These ergonomic pads are a must-have for anyone who spends long hours at the computer.

    Promising review: "I have bought a handful of these for my family and personally have used it for a long time. It makes me cringe when I go to coffee shops and see people hunched over their laptops while straining their necks. This stand is worth every penny! It's very sturdy and holds my 15.6-inch laptop with no problem. I love how it allows me to maintain a good posture and not strain my neck. All of this for a fraction of the cost of a visit to the chiropractor! Would highly recommend!" —Aaron A.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in 10 colors).

    8. An acrylic to-do list board if you're feeling ~fancy~ and want to elevate your home office aesthetic while keeping track of your tasks. It comes in multiple sizes and three elegant hardware options.

    Promising review: "I just moved into a house with a boring view of the side of the neighbor's garage from my home office, and I spend WAY too much time in my office. This stuff makes a rainbow migrate throughout the day from the floor to the wall and makes my long work day a lot more tolerable! It also blocks my boring view of the neighbor's garage and their view in my window. It looks cool at night too." —Ariel Dutton

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in 11 sizes).

    10. A 24-inch monitor that'll maximize your screen space so you're not confined to your laptop. Working on a laptop from a coffee shop might make sense, but an external monitor for daily use is a WFH essential!

    It features a 75Hz refresh rate with 1080p resolution, making it suitable for casual gaming too. It has two HDMI ports — be sure to pick up a USB-C hub if you're planning to connect a MacBook (I've used this one for years and like it!).

    Promising reviews: "If you work from home, you must have this in your life! Super easy to set up, great packaging, great quality, great price. I absolutely LOVE this!" —RundownwithRachel

    "Just set this monitor up, and so far it’s earned all 5 stars! It was easy to assemble, it’s compatible with my MacBook Pro (with a USB-C adapter), and the picture is great! I just wanted another monitor for when I work from home, so having something available that was affordable like this was perfect for what I needed." —Allison H.

    Get it from Amazon for $118.

    11. And a monitor riser with four USB ports because sometimes you need a lil' extra height *and* a few extra ports. You can also store other gadgets and supplies under the riser.

    Other things to keep in mind: Raising your laptop or monitor up to eye level makes for better ergonomics (i.e. reduced eye and neck strain). Read more about how elevating your screen to eye level can help at Cleveland Clinic. PLUS, by lifting your screen, you make more room on your desk for storage underneath the stand. 

    Promising review: "This was just the thing I needed for my desk. Super convenient to have the wireless charger and the USB hub too. Very good for cable management. I really love having a stand that provides additional functionality. It's a clean design, maybe the logo is a bit large and white on black so it's quite noticeable (a shade of gray on black would be nicer), but that's OK. Great stand!" —

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in two sizes and two styles). For a little extra, you can upgrade this monitor stand to not just have USB ports, but a wireless charger for your phone, too! 

    12. A sparkly and protective rose gold MacBook case to help prevent laptop damage, especially if you lug it around a lot. When working from your home office, this glittery case will def brighten up your day!

    Promising review: "Have had this product about a week now. Absolutely love it, what a game changer!! As a consultant who lives a typical consulting life, I pretty much sit in front of a computer all day long. Even though I work remotely a lot, I barely leave my desk. After a while, you will start to suffer from all the common things as everyone else, back pain, neck pain, you know all those things. Those all get changed when I saw this product! To be honest, I didn't buy it right away because of the price of course. But I finally decided to make the purchase as a holiday gift to myself. And I am so glad I made this choice! It hasn't been long, but I have been using it every day. It was super easy to put together and easy to move around because of the wheels. You can totally work while using it. The best part is, YOU DON'T EVEN FEEL LIKE YOU'RE WORKING OUT. And somehow it helps you to concentrate better. There is no need to dedicate one hour for the gym, this could be an anytime thing. When you are working, watching shows, even playing games. I guess because of the working out, my sleep improved as well. Not to mention the pains from my back. All in all, this thing changed my life!!" —joshua0315
