1. An undetectable mouse jiggler for folks working at home who need to stay "active" on Gchat, Teams, or Slack and sometimes want to dash out to use the bathroom or walk the dog without doing the whole "BRB, BACK IN A BIT!!" song and dance every time they dare to get up from their desk.

2. A set of affordable, highly popular wireless Bluetooth earbuds reviewers say make *perfect* AirPod dupes.

3. A pair of lightweight legging-style joggers reviewers swear by for perfect Lululemon Align Jogger dupes — these are an excellent cozy-but-still-breathable option for folks working from home who might want to spring up for a quick walk or errand in the middle of the day. 

Promising review: "These are literally the best leggings/joggers I have ever owned, and I plan to eventually buy every single color. I originally saw these on TikTok and heard they were like the Lululemon ones but cheaper. I've never owned Lululemon leggings, but if they feel anything like these, then I have clearly been missing out. These are soft and absolutely perfect. I love the pockets and jogger style and that they fit like leggings and can be worn to the gym or dressed up with a cute outfit. I need to buy every color of these before they're gone!" —Courtney

4. A 3-in-1 foldable magnetic wireless charger they'll honestly be mad you didn't know about before now?? It folds out from a small square into a rectangular charging pad with a spot for your iPhone, AirPods, *and* Apple Watch to charge at their desk all at the same time.

Psst — a lot of travelers swear by it because it saves soooo much space in their luggage! 

Promising review: "I use this product to charge my IPhone 13, AirPods, and Apple Watch. Prior to this 3-in-1 compact purchase, I have purchased three different kinds of 3-in-1 chargers — I frequently travel between school and home with carry-on bags on airlines and all of the previous stand version chargers doesn't fit well in my bags or I am always worried I would break. This is compact and folds so well that I can fit in my carry-on or in any zipper pockets without having to worry about breaking anything. Charger works really well and it is the best compact one you can find in market. Love it and been using it for two months now and no issues!!" —SBREDDY

Each planner comes with 50 tear-off sheets the size of a standard piece of paper.

Promising review: "These daily planning sheets keep this mama on TRACK! I started out printing daily planning and schedule sheets from a free download on my computer. Then I realized why not just buy some already printed so I save my ink at home. I found these and love how the day, schedule, tasks, and health habits are organized. I've already reordered once and will continue to use these." —Shannon Hoglund

7. A dual-sided device cleaner with two sides — one with an antimicrobial-treated cleaning solution to clear off the grime off their computer screen, and another with a soft polishing buffer to make it gleam.

8. A set of soda can "lids" to spare you them the panic of tipping over a can that subsequently leaks all over their keyboard — these fashion their LaCroixs and sodas into a spillproof bottle (and make them delightfully portable!).

Reviewers also *swear* by these for keeping sand and dirt off the rim at picnics or the beach! 

Promising review: "Biggest thing since sliced bread. Do you hate it when you when can’t finish your soda or maybe don’t have time? If you're driving somewhere it’s difficult to handle a can drink sometimes, you’re trying to take a sip and all a sudden you hit a pot hole. Soda up your nose, down your chin, on your clothes. It doesn’t have to be that way anymore — with these you can enjoy you soda just like it was in a bottle. I was skeptical at first, but sold as soon as I put it on the can. I use it every day." —Jonesy

Promising review: "I've had my Worky for three months now and have loved it. I love that everything is in one place and then I can close it up and work disappears. The compartments are great for tucking away piles of paperwork, the multiple charging outlets are convenient and the LED lights are helpful on Zoom calls when lighting in the room are not ideal. Everything in one place, simple and convenient. Just the way I like it." —Amy

11. A MacBook shortcut keyboard cover to unlock all the ~hidden secrets~ of those buttons they're pressing all day. This shows them all kinds of hacks like how to quickly open search bars, minimize and open new windows, and take screenshots with their keys. 

Promising review: "This keyboard cover is amazing! The colors are bright and the design is cute. The quick key cheat sheet (as I like to call it) is a lifesaver! All of my coworkers ask me where'd I get it and always are impressed by the cheat sheet's detail. I chose this product only because the color scheme would look good with the pack of stickers I selected to sticker bomb my laptop, but it turned out to be a much more valuable asset to a new Apple user like myself!" —Bee

13. A 42-page Rocketbook Fusion reusable notebook perfect for anyone who prefers to take notes by hand and review by computer.

14. A portable dual monitor for their laptop to give their screen thaaaaat much more space to breathe — a real perk now that their home office situation might change from room to room or place to place, depending on how ~remote~ they are.

15. A mini desktop vacuum so you can enjoy your favorite afternoon hobby of eating half a box of Cheez-Its whilst hovering over your laptop *without* having to deal with the evidence. This quickly and easily scoops up crumbs and dirt to keep your work area pristine.

16. A heated eye massager with so many bells and whistles it is worth the price and *then* some — not only does it come with five different massage modes and a 15-minute timer, but it has Bluetooth music so they can vibe with their eyes *and* their ears. Reviewers swear by this to help combat eye strain and headaches, aka the hallmarks of sitting at a desk all day. 

Promising review: "I saw this product on one of Amazon’s must-have TikTok videos and I knew I had to get it. It was so worth it — even though price may seem higher compared to other sellers, this is for sure a good investment piece. The quality is top notch, the strap that goes around your head is comfortable, and most importantly, the duration of each mode is long enough that it doesn’t interrupt your rest. I work a 12-hour night shift as a nurse and this technology has helped me get through the night easily👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽" —Amazon Customer

20. A colorful, easy-to-install LED strip to backlight their monitor or their desk and give it the vaguely intergalactic ambiance it deserves. Bonus? This can offset eye strain by reducing the contrast between the screen and a dark room.

21. A zippered sleeve that'll help tame the veritable jungle of wires underfoot from their computer setup.

22. A USB-rechargeable, slim-profile rotating LED desk light they can easily attach to desks in need of more light. Not only does it rotate, but it comes with brightness and warmth settings to get the light *just* right, and also has a built-in magnet to attach itself to metal surfaces. They can even pull the light off the base and use it as a flashlight in a pinch!

Promising review: "This light is everything — it is effortless to use and very lightweight. The touch buttons offer temperature choice and brightness variations. I like how it detaches from its magnetic base so you can use it like a flashlight. Very versatile as it can be attached anywhere using self-adhesive tape. Plan to purchase more for my home." —Shari Hoo

25. A memory foam seat cushion for their tushy so effective at relieving pressure from their tailbone that they'll finally stop losing sleep over their love-hate relationship with their computer chair.

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

27. A webcam cover for anyone whose personal motto is "juuuuuust in case" (as fun as it would be to accidentally invite all their coworkers to watch them slouching over a ham sandwich on a group Zoom).

28. A pain-relieving compression eye mask developed specifically to target pain from migraines, tension headaches, and eyestrain, which computers — bless their hearts — are infamous for causing.

29. A desktop ~aesthetic~ download for anyone who needs a reset — this comes complete with nine high resolution wallpapers and 12 uniquely colored folders and alphabet letters, 20 hand drawn folder covers, and an easy installation guide. If they're going to stare at a screen for 12 hours a day, they might as well enjoy the view!!

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

31. A low-impact under-the-desk elliptical for anyone who gets distracted by aches and pains from sitting in one position too long — this can help keep them loose.

32. Or a compact, TikTok-famous rolling desk bike pretty much guaranteed to keep even the most restless among us on task. This compact bike is also height adjustable so they can get their perfect fit with the tray, and has "whisper quiet" pedaling, eight resistance levels, and a way to track their mileage, rpm, and other stats.
