    1801 And Co / Etsy

    1801 And Co is a small business on Etsy based in Minnesota that makes custom acrylic printing like calendars, signs, blank boards, and more.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my acrylic dry erase board. Not only is it practical for my memory of daily tasks, but it feels more like another art piece in my room. I absolutely love that it’s made by a small family business, their love really shines through in their product, their photo and their handwritten thank you. THANK YOU!" –Maggie

    Get it from 1801 And Co on Etsy for $16.76+ (available in various sizes, as well as three metal finishes). 

    39. An under-the-desk, folding treadmill so you can stay movin' and groovin' throughout the workday (where you'd normally be sedentary and decidedly un-groovy). This treadmill even includes a Bluetooth speaker and traditional arm bars, so you can use it at places other than your desk, too!

    Promising review: "I got this treadmill to use with my standing desk so that I can do some slow walking while I work to combat my sedentary life since I work from home. I have been using it for at least three hours a day each work day and it's been a great experience! Set up was easy, and it's been great for getting my steps in for the day while in meetings/performing light tasks. I simply set it to speed 2 and walk easy! The treadmill is comfortable to walk on and even stand on when I need to stand still at the desk for an extended amount of time. It's small, but more than enough for a slow walking pace and the size makes it easier to move around the room when I want to sit at my desk. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get a treadmill for their home office setup." –Chrism99

    Get it from Amazon for $315.99+ (available in seven colors).

    40. cold brew coffee maker that'll save you some extra dough since you'll be able to get your mid-day icy caffeine fix right from the comfort of your own kitchen and *not* from ordering an overpriced oat milk latte at a cafè.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my husband's birthday, not really thinking much of it. He’s a coffee enthusiast and honestly I didn’t think this would become a staple in his coffee making, just another coffee gadget. He LOVES this thing. He fills it will ground coffee before bed, adds water and puts it in the fridge. His only complaint is that it can be a little tough to get all the grounds out into the trash, but that’s just a common problem with diffuser filters like this. He also loves that it’s plastic because he can be pretty accident-prone. It’s thick and so far we have not had any warping or discoloration. We hand wash this only, I don’t think I would put it in the dishwasher. Overall, awesomely priced product and great gift for coffee lovers!" –Steph

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    41. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses because your poor eyeballs could use a little relief from the constant screen-staring you've been doing. Plus, they make a gosh darn cute accessory.

    Promising review: “I absolutely love this product!! I use my laptop to do most of my work, so I'm constantly staring at my screen. After two weeks, I noticed my eyes were straining to read the screen and I began having migraines. Within a couple of days of using these glasses, I saw huge results. I wasn't squinting as much and my headaches gradually disappeared. I highly recommend.” —dannag

    Get two pairs of glasses from Amazon for $12.78+ (available in eight color combinations).
