1. A pour-over coffee maker you can rely on while you're surfing shared Google docs — no muss, no fuss, and no fancy coffee gadgets busting on you and making you regret the day both you and the Starbucks mermaid were born.
2. Or a cold brew coffee maker so gloriously easy to use that all you have to do is stick your favorite ground coffee in the filter, seal the airtight lid on top, and pop it in the fridge overnight. Boom, four cups of cold brew to keep you energized through all...the meetings...that should have been emails.
3. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 80,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can block out distracting noise during the day. These are also super handy for ~walk and talkers~ — you can easily pace around the room during phone calls to stay energized and focused.
4. A keyboard cleaning gel, because if you are anything like me then working from home means that your laptop is working overtime both as a keyboard and as a lunch tray ("Alexa, how do you get Cheez-It crumbs out of a laptop fan???).
5. An insulated soundproofing strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door so you and your roommate can both be on a Skype call without hearing each other's coworkers echoing in the distance.

8. 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.
9. An adorably encouraging daily planner you can fill out throughout the course of each day to keep yourself on track for all your calls, goals, and even your water intake — an easy solution for anyone who sometimes gets so focused on tasks they forget to come up for air.

11. Plus a set of eye-popping fine point pens designed for planners and journals, so you can — gasp — color code your tasks, putting a fun twist on them that makes it all the more motivating to stay focused 🌈.
12. An adorable We Rate Dogs daily calendar to brighten up your day every single time you sit down at your desk. What? Did we do?? To deserve dogs????? 😭
13. A mug warmer to keep your coffee piping hot long after you brew it, because while you would never forget to chug it at the office, for some reason coffee slips into the time-space-WFH continuum when you're drinking it from your couch.
14. A pack of NeuroGum made with a blend of caffeine and nootropics, designed to give you energy five times faster than regular coffee — without jitters or sluggishness afterward. That 3 p.m. WFH slump when you suddenly have the attention span of a goldfish just met its match.
15. A super popular time-marked water bottle to remind you to stay hydrated during the day, which is especially important when you're WFH — it's even easier to feel anxious or tired when you're on your lonesome, and being dehydrated can def make it even worse.

19. A waterproof, stain-resistant faux marble granite adhesive you can use on an old desk to magic it into a sleeker, brand new version, so you'll actually look forward to working on it every day.
20. A set of nonstick, reusable toaster oven bags so you can make grilled cheese and paninis for quick breakfasts and lunches at home instead of eating the same wilted meal prep salad every day.
21. And an eight-pack of ready-to-eat refried beans with a 12-month shelf life, so any time you find yourself needing a delicious lunch option STAT, you'll always have a good base for a meal at the ready.
22. Plus a bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, so you can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to WFH meals that might otherwise feel totally "blah." (No offense to microwave pizza! She's trying her best.)
23. A portable mini air purifier with three fan speeds and a HEPA filter for some major allergy relief during the workday. It'll help to rid your air of dust, pollen, smoke, odor, and pet dander, so you can finally stop putting yourself on mute every time you need to sneeze during a Zoom.

29. 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.

33. 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.
34. Or a wooden and adjustable tabletop breakfast tray to prop right up on your bed because, let's be honest, 90% of the G-chats you're sending your coworkers are from deep inside a mountain of your sheets.
Promising review: "Love this lap desk. I love that it adjusts so I can angle it up to draw art or make it flat and put my laptop on it. The cup holder that pulls out is a nice touch. Great for holding pens or a drink. It doesn’t seem big enough to fit most water bottles though so keep that in mind." –Timothy Hall
Get it from Amazon for $43.79.

36. A selfie ring light for all your Zoom presentations, so you can trick your coworkers into thinking you live inside a beautifully-lit Instagram apartment instead of a snack dungeon.
37. A glorious assortment of snacks because you deserve to look forward to the bliss of popping open that 3 p.m. sugar rush, even if that means heading to your kitchen rather than the office cafeteria.
38. A 42-page Rocketbook Fusion reusable notebook that works the same way all their products do — you can write on its pages the way you would a regular notebook, upload the page onto your devices, and wipe the notebook clean with water to use all over again.
39. A set of elegant matching desk accessories to bring some order to your space. An organized space = an organized mind = you'll be so good at working from home that you'll be tempted to start a lifestyle blog about it (you do you, y'all).

Promising review: "All I can say is, "Ahhhhhhhhhh!" A perfectly amazing invention that is so simple yet so wonderful. I use it all the time at my desk and it is like having a constant spa for your feet. Do NOT wear socks with this great foot rest or you will miss the comforting texture and softness. I suffer with chronic lower back pain. This foot rest has absolutely helped to curb my bouts with back pain. I can sit for so much longer without having to stop and walk around. I also like the fact that I can very comfortably lean back in my office chair without having to flex my legs so hard. A super product. Cannot recommend it enough!" –Mr. Tudball
Get it from Amazon for $37.66.
