1. 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.

Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

Promising review: "This gum is awesome. Makes me super productive and tastes great for a caffeine based gum. Worth every penny. It's so much easier than drinking a coffee or a Red Bull and doesn't give me the same jitters a normal caffeine supplement would." —Cindy SEO

One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

Promising review: "This is the most amazing product I think I've ever bought from Amazon!!! It's SO easy to use and you see the difference right away! Don't second guess purchasing this product, its cleaned both my phone and computer so well, they basically look brand new! Definitely worth the money!!" —Jacqueline

3. 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.

Amazon, amazon.com

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

Promising review: "So glad I bought this! This is a great little notepad! Cute, practical, and with just enough writing space to capture the most important things. Well worth the price!" —Nikki Grillo

5. 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.

Reviewer with gray fingerless compression gloves on hands
amazon.com

Promising review: "I was feeling pain and discomfort in both hands for the past few weeks, so I decided to look into purchasing some sort of compression gloves. I got these within two days and started to wear them immediately and found them to be very comfortable. Within two or three days my hands were feeling so much better. Since they were fingerless I started to use them during the day also while on my computer etc. After about a week my hands were back to normal...no more pain or discomfort, so thank you ComfyBrace Compression Gloves for making my old tired painful hands feel young again and pain free again. So anyone out there who is suffering from arthritis or carpal tunnel pain do yourself a favor and get those gloves. They are well worth the money and you too will be thanking them." —Juliette 

Get a pair from Amazon for $16.97 (available in three sizes).

6. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 160,000 5-star 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.

amazon.com

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs, and have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone. Psst — these are also a great option for going outside in a mask, since they don't have wires that'll get tangled in the mask straps.

Promising review: "I never leave reviews but I've been on the hunt for a pair of wireless buds forever without having to pay the AirPod price and I finally found them! I saw these on a BuzzFeed article of 'things to buy for under $50, blah blah blah' something or other. I put left them in my cart for ages and finally bought them the other day. I wasn't hopeful and figured I could return them if I hated them but let me tell you. I work from home and I used them all day for work on Zoom calls yesterday, an hour long phone therapy session, and another few hours of work after that. Throughout the day there was no crackle or static, no dropped sound, everyone said they could hear me very clearly, and with a house full of people and a crying baby — I heard almost NOTHING. They easily connected to my phone and my computer. And at the end of the day I still had 40% battery left. The first day I used them I had static from my Zoom call but a quick Google search fixed that easily. Now it's smooth sailing. I adore these headphones — if you don't want to spring for AirPods, these are worth the money." —Ceton Tate

Get it from Amazon $23.99+ (available in five colors).

7. 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 chair.

Promising review: "I was having terrible lower back pain and sciatica due to working from home seated all day at my computer. I found this cushion and thought I would try it. I'm thankful I did. I followed the enclosed use directions. The first day of sitting on this cushion I experienced some radiation going to the front of my leg but no back pain. The instructions say it takes up to three days for your body to adjust. I'm now fully adjusted to the cushion and no more pain!! Thank you so much for creating this wonderful cushion, well worth the money!" —Denise E. 

Get it from Amazon for $30.55.

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.

Amazon

This is compatible with Mac, PC, and Chrome laptops between 13 and 17 inches, and attaches with device-safe metal plates. The magnetic pull is strong enough for you to take your laptop from room to room without undoing your setup, but also easy enough to remove that you can tuck everything into a backpack quickly when you're on the move. You can even rotate the display to your preferences, if you want it at an angle!

Promising review: "This product is worth the money. Because I'm working from home now, one laptop screen just isn't cutting it. Sure, I can hook my laptop to my TV, but then I'm stuck working in a room that isn't necessarily conducive to being productive. The SideTrak is lightweight, easy to adhere to my MacBook Air (and I didn't have to remove the protective case), and easy to set up. This was a great early Christmas present!' —AJ Jones

Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

9. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a night-light, so your WFH setup is as organized as possible.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've bought three of these guys, two for my tech-loaded bedroom (PC, two monitors, Xbox, printer, CPAP machine, Switch, desk lamps, desk fan...) and one for my parents' electronics corner (printer, phone chargers...). We love them. The USB slots alone make these worth the price. Frees up a socket that would normally be a dedicated USB converter. The sockets are spaced out enough that chunky plugs don't block other plugs. The screw prevents the whole assembly from falling out or even wiggling much. Overall, absolutely delighted and glad I stumbled across these. The nightlight is a nice touch too. I wouldn't have missed it if it weren't there, but I love that it is." —Eh?Dub!

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

10. 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???).

Amazon

People also use this on air-conditioning units in their cars, remote controls, and other small areas with nooks and crannies that are hard to clean!

Promising review: "This is so amazing and cleans up any keyboard! This is a must-have if you use a mechanical keyboard, I've taken all the keys off my mechanical keyboard to clean it in the past, and nothing truly cleans it like that but I don't have the time to do this once a week! This product cleans way beyond my expectations! I've used it on multiple keyboards, car vents and small cracks/joints in my car interior. I was paranoid buying this container as I wasn't sure how log it would last but i'm still on my first container of this so it's WELL worth the money. I also purchased the smaller quantity pouches. Pick either one with confidence and clean your disgusting keyboard off!" —jgutz20

Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

11. A set of adhesive cable clips you can stick to your desk to keep your charging cables locked in one convenient place, so your desk doesn't become a veritable jungle of cords that makes you wince every time you see it.

Amazon

Promising review: "Worth the money to remove this headache from my life. Ahh yes — the age old problem of constantly having to search and untangle your various charging cords. It's a problem that just never gets solved until you introduce these little nubs. So I ordered these guys, just angry that I need this in my digital life. Do they work? Yes, yes they do. Quite well at holding an individual cord in place until you're ready to use it again. I have two on my dresser and one holds ye old iPhone charging cord and the other holds my laptop charger, ya dig? Go ahead and buy with confidence, but keep in mind they will only hold one cord at a time. Just surrender your six dollars and remove the pain from your life. You'll be glad you did." —Michael J. Hernandez

Get a set of six from Amazon for $7.47.

12. A phone holder that'll make it a heck of a lot easier to make work calls over FaceTime or Gchat, or just to see when a text from your BFF comes through with a much-needed TikTok link for an extra lil' serotonin boost.

Amazon

Psst — you can prop your phone up on it vertically or horizontally, depending on what you're using it for.

Promising review: "I love the simple little product, it surely comes in hands at work. I can clearly see my phone without having to look down and grab it off of my desk. I set my phone in it and use speaker when taking calls at work. It’s also good for watching Netflix or YouTube! It the perfect angle, sturdy, and my face recognition works well. I will be ordering another to keep at home and keep this one at my office. Totally worth the money!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

13. A delightfully colorful shortcut keyboard cover so you can easily navigate through (and discover brand new!!) hacks for tricky programs like Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro X, and more.

Chic Geeks

Chic Geeks is a Black woman-owned tech accessory company that specializes in the "re-introduction of color and personalization" to bring back the nostalgia of colorful tech infused with modern devices.

Promising review: "I bought this keyboard cover as a gift for my niece who uses Final Cut Pro often. She absolutely loves it and discovered new shortcuts for editing. It’s totally worth the money." —Staci Rutherford

Get it from Chic Geeks: the Adobe Photoshop Shortcuts cover for $20 and the Final Cut Pro X Shortcuts cover for $20 (both available in most MacBook models and sizes).

Psst — you can check out MORE shortcut laptop keyboard covers on Chic Geeks' site!

Amazon

Each set includes a pen cup, mail organizer caddy, paper tray, magazine holder, and sticky note holder.

Promising review: "I fell in love with this set the moment it came out of the box. It is sturdy, well-made and definitely worth the price. My living room is all pink and I just inherited my grandmothers writing desk so this fit in beautifully. I am a writer and like to make my writing space as inviting and lovely as possible. This desk set helps me keep my papers, mail, note pad, writing journals, and pens beautifully organized. Worth every cent." —MRS

Get it from Amazon for $40 (available in nine colors).

15. A tiny (and adorable!!) cactus humidifier that operates on a USB cable, so you can keep the air in your work space cozy and hydrating while you conquer the 57 tabs open on your computer one by one.

Promising review: "Looks so cute at my desk and works great! I get comments on it constantly, definitely worth the purchase!" —Emily Malz

Get it from Amazon for $14.89 (available in two styles).

16. A set of colorful cable protectors for your chargers, because someone (*glares in the general direction of Apple HQ*) couldn't be bothered to make versions that don't break like twigs. These will stop them from bending and the wires from fraying when you're on the move.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

I (begrudgingly!!) got these recently for my Mac charger, because apparently the journey from my bedroom to the living room was just too much for my fragile cord's heart to bear, and it was starting to get worn at the charger end. This spiraled on in less than 10 seconds and has been great in terms of making sure the charger is still flexible and has some give, but isn't bending itself backward and daring me to let it break, either. Also loved how affordable it was compared to a $30 replacement charger.

Promising review: "Great cable saver. These have saved many lightning cable including one that was eaten by my robot vacuum. Well worth the money." —A. Collins

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $3.88 (available in four color packs).

17. A memory foam gel pad for your wrists, which might relieve some of the cramping and wrist pain that comes with holding your hands over your keyboard the whole livelong day.

Amazon

It comes in two pieces — one you can prop in front of your keyboard, and the other in front of your mouse.

Promising review: "I bought these to use at work, where I spend most of my day at a computer. Before using these, I was having a lot of wrist pain after a long day of work, but just a few weeks later and my wrist feels much better! Definitely worth the price and I'm considering buying another set to keep at home!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $15.39+ (available in three sizes and 14 colors).

18. 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.

Amazon

Promising review: "Worth every penny!! I was tired of looking down at my laptop and using my books to prop it up off my desk and found this stand. It is perfect. I have a 15.6" laptop fits perfectly. The aluminum is a nice, it's not cheaply made. It puts together in three pieces, you just slide the arms in place. Easy as 1-2-3. The rubber grips are nice on the bottom and on the top so your laptop doesn't move. It's 5 inches from my desk to the bottom of my laptop and the angle is great perfect. I love the space below its perfect for so I can slide my note pad and everything underneath it instead of on top of my laptop. So if you're looking for a stand, this is it." —LizC

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

19. A mug warmer that'll keep your coffee piping hot 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.

Promising review: "Bought this for my father since he would always be working in his home office and let his coffee go cold, necessitating trips down to the microwave at least three times a day. Now, he leaves his mug on this and no matter how distracted with work he gets, he can always grab a nice warm cup of coffee. Super convenient and it doesn’t take up a lot of space at all. He uses it just about every day. Worth every penny." —njzeus

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

20. 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.

You can either use this with your phone mounted just under the light for FaceTime, or if you're calling or filming from a laptop, you can set up the tripod or the light on your desk behind the screen. Boom, fancy lighting.

Promising review: "Checked all of the YouTube reviews-this is pretty much the defacto standard selfie light. Well worth the $$$. Works great. I use it with a handheld USB battery brick. Like the adjustability of the light intensity. Eight inches is perfect to aim your camera/camcorder thru the center of the light. Light comes with a nice cloth bag. Excellent product!" —M. Schnell

Get it from Amazon for $33.99.

21. 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.

Get it from Amazon for $129.02.

This compact, rolling desk bike is also height adjustable so you can get your perfect fit with the tray, and has "whisper quiet" pedaling, eight resistance levels, and a way to track your mileage, rpm, and other stats.

Promising review: "I love it so much. Since I started working from home due to Covid, I’m less active than before. I used to go the the gym and join spinning classes 2-3 times a week and Zumba and walking one hour a day. This chair keeps me moving. Love it and recommended. It is very pricey but worth it. Very sturdy and good design. Look very classy in my office." —Julie Rust

Get it from Amazon for $359.99 (clip the "$100 off" coupon on the product page for this price).

Psst — you can watch the viral desk bike TikTok featuring it for more insight on how it works. It's been liked over 1.8 million times!

Amazon

The bar on this is adjustable to fit most treadmills, with a height adjustable pole and a laptop tray equipped with nylon straps to keep your laptop secure. It's also super portable in case you want to ever use it at a gym.

Promising review: "This monitor mount is pretty great. I couldn’t find anything similar to it. I like that you can adjust the height of the platform as well as width of the frame bars. I am considering getting a stationary bike, so it will be easy to move it if needed. I was worried it will be hard to assemble, based on some reviews, but it wasn’t hard at all. Worth the money!" —Ekaterina Potapova

Get it from Amazon for $59.95.

24. A light-up essential oil diffuser and humidifier so you can not only have a cute little accessory on your desk, but make the conditions in your office to your *precise* standard, from the scent (might I recommend a soothing lavender??) to the humidity level.

Promising review: "Happy with this product! For the price, it’s worth every penny. I got it for my desk after one of my co workers ordered it. It’s perfect for small spaces. I had some tea tree oil and I absolutely love the scent and the lights. Can’t wait to try other oils." —Anu

Promising review: "Love my glasses! First reason is because I get migraines and can hardly stand looking at my computer screen while at work. These glasses significantly reduce the pain and make work bearable. The second reason is because they are super cute and stylish. Lastly, they came in a cool little box with a blue light testing kit (yes I did it and these are legit), also a tool for the screws, a cloth to clean them, and a bag for one of the pairs. Definitely worth the money! Would recommend." —Dakota C. Lusk

Promising review: "I love this mini fridge. It was well worth the money. I keep it in my room so I can just open it and have snacks and drinks. It keeps my beverages cold. It's not loud at all. I can only hear it when the room is completely quiet. It was delivered in two days, and it was easy to set up. What I also LOVE about this mini fridge is you can switch the setting to warm. It can heat up your food, too. If you're looking for a little something to add to your room, kitchen, office, or anywhere, this is what you should buy." —jace1313

Psst — come for the bajillion fun color options, but stay for the super handy flip top lid and silicone, leakproof spout that actually makes drinking water seem — dare I say — fun?

Promising review: "I have tried many water bottles to try and help me drink more water like I should. This bottle is by far my favorite! It breaks down how much you should be drinking by the hour and to break it down like it does, it really isn't much at all and is so easy to set goals and accomplish them! I love the rubber spout, as it is easy to drink out of and easy to keep clean! It is definitely leak proof, which is also a huge plus for me as I am always on the go and sometimes have to put it in my backpack. I highly recommend this bottle if you are looking for a good water bottle! Oh, and the color is spot on and even prettier than it looked in the photo. Definitely worth the price!!!!" —Lisa O.

Promising review: "I'm the type who buys an iced coffee every single day. I don't like how with other coffee makers that claim to make 'iced' coffee, you have to brew it hot first and then pour over ice, it just isn't the same. This product is PERFECT. It makes great cold brew coffee, wicked easy to clean, and it comes out fantastic. I was worried about getting bits of coffee grounds in my coffee, but the filter in this is awesome and this is perfect to help me make coffee at home and start saving some money!

This notebook includes lined and grid pages in addition to planner, calendar, and brainstorming pages, so it pretty much covers any of your WFH needs.

Promising review: "Love love love this notebook. It is awesome. The fact that I can fill it up. Scan and download to my Google Drive, OneNote and many other drives is amazing. I just erase and start fresh the next month and if I need last month's notes I just look in my drives. It is awesome. The ink does smudge easily at first, just give it a sec or two to dry. But other than that it is amazing! Worth every penny! Will be getting this as a gift to all of my new coaches that join my team! Perfect monthly planner!" —sarah vankirk

Get it from Amazon for $37 (available in eight colors).

Promising review: "Was looking for a wireless charging base that could connect via a USB cord, allowing for charging in the car and other locations where I didn't necessarily have a standard wall plug. The fast charging works well, and the led light is not too bright (an issue with other chargers I have had). Overall very satisfied. The two pack made the pack worth the money. Thank you!" —David Haas

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four colors).

33. A delightfully bendy desk lamp that not only charges right up with a USB cord, but will also serve as a port to charge your phone. Behold this glorious intersection of style and function!

It also comes with three different brightness settings, so you can adjust it as the light in your space changes throughout the day.

Promising review: "Perfect desktop lamp for my office. I keep my phone charger plugged into the handy USB port as well. I like the adjustable settings and I don’t ever feel like it’s “too bright” that some LED lamps give off. I haven’t had any issues with my phone (iPhone 11 Pro) not connecting either. Well worth the price." —coley7788

Promising review: "Inputting document changes is much easier on the eyes since I got this. Clip to hold papers on place and a line-counter that slides up and down if you need to see exactly where you are. Well worth the price and folds up pretty slim, considering it needs to have a 'lip' at the bottom to hold documents." —FryLady

Get it from Amazon for $13.26.

35. A productivity timer you can pretty much use as your designated babysitter — it can be set to any number of minutes within an hour, so you know when your designated "breaks" are, and can try to train yourself to get as much done as you can in those bursts before you let yourself be intentionally distracted.

A model adjusting the time on a small square-shaped blue clock
Amazon

A popular way of doing this would be to set the time for 50 minutes, so then you work work work for that stretch and then take the 10 minutes at the top of the hour for other tasks like checking Instagram or answering texts. Then you can restart the timer and do it again. If anything, it's just sometimes a reminder of what you can get done in a certain amount of time if you block distractions out, which will motivate you to *keep* working that way.

Promising review: "Great time management for an adult!  It's simple, accurate, and the color wheel helps me see how much time I have left with my peripheral vision. Worth the purchase!" —Anonymoose
