    Promising review: "This is my first time using a soft footrest versus a hard plastic one, and I love it! Now that I am working from home full time, I was desperate for some ergonomic help, and this foot rest suited my needs perfectly. I especially love the material, it feels so delightful on bare feet! Having the option to remove the bottom cushion allows for flexibility with my chair height." —Kim K.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.67.

    2. Cable clip organizers for the annoying cord mess taking over your desk. If you're done dealing with tangled chargers, we hear you, and these little gadgets will be a big help!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Place these directly on your desk or the side of a cabinet for a trip-free tech zone.

    Promising review: "These clips are great for keeping your cables from cluttering up work and living spaces. In addition to my desk at work, I have these all over my house, next to bedroom nightstand, home office desk, kitchen island, living room tables, and even on a table on my back patio. So simple, but genius. They adhere and stay put without issue. Phone cables slide in and out easily as needed, yet stay secure behind the flexible rubber lip with regular use and pressure." —J. Post

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.96.

    3. And a charging cable tag because it'll let everyone know which Android or iPhone charging cable is yours and (hopefully) prevent your partner, roommate, or fam members from "borrowing it" indefinitely.

    Rugs USA

    Promising review: "So beautiful! We love the texture and pattern of this rug. It is very thin and has no tracking, so a rug pad or something to keep it in place is necessary if it’s not on carpet. It reminds me of a jute rug in its texture (more coarse), so it works best in nonlounge areas. Exactly what we needed for the space!" —Rugs USA Customer

    Get it from Rugs USA for $38.70+ (available in 12 sizes, five shapes, and five colors).

    Promising review: "I ordered one of these several months ago, and it’s adorable! It was so tiny, I wasn’t hopeful but all of the sudden it’s quadrupled in size. It sits on my desk, which gets lots of natural light. However I keep it in a corner where it doesn’t get direct light and it’s thriving." —Deb

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. A small journal for last-minute notes, to-do lists, and record keeping. Why only save everything on your WFH laptop when you can write it down too?

The ring light has three modes: warm yellow, warm white, and white, as well as 10 levels of brightness. It is suitable for all kinds of lighting needs.

    18. A mug warmer so you don't have to make a trip to the microwave again (sigh) when your cup of coffee gets too cold. It'll fit comfortably on your desk and be there whenever you need a caffeine pick-me-up.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you like your warm beverages really hot and you generally are at a single location, this is an absolute must-have. Previously, I'd have to microwave my coffee two to five times before I finished it. Not only is this generally frustrating, it wastes a lot of time going back and forth. Now, I have a pleasantly warm cup of coffee on my desk all day long. I could go for it being 5 to 10 degrees hotter on the hottest setting, but it's close enough to perfect that I'm not at all disappointed." —Tim C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in eight colors).
