    1. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils to help you soothe away that vague headache you sometimes get from sitting in one place for too long (Big Work-From-Home Mood, y'all).

    2. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 80,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can listen to music during your workday *without* your ears feeling like they've been beaten up.

    3. Or a pair of AirPods Pro with a wireless charging case, if you're looking to invest in a comfy, ridiculously effective noiseproof option. Once these toggle into "noise-cancelling" mode it's basically all the irritating background noise in the world just *POOFS* away.

    4. A hanging window desk that lets you basically turn any window in your life into a temporary standing desk — now not only will you get a chance to stretch your legs, but you can enjoy your view to the fullest (read: wave profusely at any dogs that happen to be walking by).

    5. A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone that you'll finally stop losing sleep over your love-hate relationship with your desk chair.

    6. Plus memory foam armrest pads, because you shouldn't have to deal with elbow bruises every time you lean back from the screen during a team call just because your chair is being rude.

    7. A pair of compression gloves designed to help alleviate pain from carpal tunnel and arthritis, so you can type at your keyboard without an internal monologue of "ow OW ow owwwww" for the majority of your workday.

    8. A ventilated laptop stand you can prop on a table or a desk to make it more WFH-friendly. This makes your laptop screen eye-level to reduce neck and shoulder strain, and gives your laptop fan space to breathe so it doesn't overheat.

    9. Or an adjustable, portable standing desk so you can mitigate some of the ache of sitting by standing for a bit and getting the blood flowing to your legs. Also a great solution if your desk is a little too low for comfort!

    10. A pretty pastel mug warmer that'll keep your coffee at the optimum temperature long after you brew it, because for some reason coffee slips into the time-space-WFH continuum when you're drinking it from your couch.

    11. A low-impact under-the-desk elliptical for anyone who gets distracted by aches and pains from sitting in one position all day — this can help keep you loose.

    12. A pair of game-changing memory foam slippers for indoor *and* outdoor use, so you can enjoy these lightweight, plush-lined clouds during your workday but still be able to poke your head outside to walk the dog, grab the mail, or briefly say hello to the sun as a courtesy.

    13. An insulated weatherproofing and soundproofing strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door — not only will it keep heat or air-conditioning from leaking out, it'll keep your roommate's loud Skype calls from leaking *in*.

    14. An adjustable ergonomic kneeling chair that may be the unexpected solution to your WFH backache woes — this angled seat helps better align your spine and evenly distribute your weight, sort of like a standing desk without actually having to stand.

    15. A lavender-scented stress ball you can keep at your desk anytime you need to squeeze a lil' something to soothe yourself (read: right before you type the words "Per my last email" for the fifth time in a row).

    16. A flexible wooden sofa tray, because you know what? Couches are legally desks now and it's time we start optimizing them to their fullest, most comfy potential.

    17. Plus an adjustable rolling desk for anyone whose commitment to couch-desk is long-term — this is height-adjustable and has rolling wheels, so truly any comfortable chair in the house is now your work domain.

    18. A mini fridge that may truly be the MVP of working from home — this has just enough space to stock your favorite snacks and seltzers for little pick-me-ups through the day. (Bonus: nobody will ever steal your precious raspberry Chobanis while your back is turned. NEVER FORGET.)

    19. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses to help defend your eyeballs against the strain of your transition from phone to laptop to television to laptop to phone, aka your eyes' new itinerary.

    20. A light-up essential oil diffuser and humidifier so you can set the air quality in your office to your *precise* standard, from the scent (might I recommend a soothing lavender??) to the humidity level.

    21. A pair of Under Armour fleece pants that were basically invented for anyone who wants to work in their pajamas in their heart, but isn't yet emotionally ready to take the full leap.

    23. A portable dual monitor for your laptop so you can tackle your to-do list with thaaaaat much more monitor space to breathe — a real perk now that your home office situation might change from room to room depending on what everyone else in the house needs on any given day.

    24. A set of Monkey Noodles, a quiet sensory toy that stretches, pulls, twirls, wraps, *and* squeezes and may help calm anxiety during video conferencing marathons that laugh in the face of Dolly Parton's "Nine To Five."

    27. A lightweight breakfast tray you can prop next to you on your bed, because let's be honest, 90% of the Gchats you're sending your coworkers are from deep inside a mountain of your sheets.

    28. An under-the-desk foot rest to help take pressure off your feet and lower back, subtly fixing your posture and preventing some of the aches and pains that come from parking it at your home desk all day long.

    32. A super soft, height-adjustable velvet swivel desk chair to add a touch of vintage sophistication to your otherwise modern setup. (Also, desk chairs that spin > all desk chairs ever.)

    33. A compact light therapy lamp that thousands of reviewers swear by — this UV-free bb has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to your life, so you can tailor it to your WFH needs.

    35. An Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon's most popular Alexa-enabled device, because it comes equipped with a new "Work From Home" routine.
