    28 Office Products You’ll Probably Want If You’re Studying At Home

    Hitting the books, but from the comfort of home.

    1. A silicone keyboard cover that'll protect your computer from accidental spills, crumbs, and dust. Now you can eat and drink near your laptop without fear of getting it dirty or damaged. It's easy to remove, so you can give it a quick wipe before reinstalling.

    2. A pair of blue light-blocking glasses that are great for anyone who spends most of day staring at a computer. The lenses filter out blue light, which helps reduce eye strain and irritation.

    3. A portable external hard drive that may be small, but is mighty when it comes to storage space. You can backup your notes, essays, and readings, keep extra copies of all your important files, and free up space on your laptop or computer.

    22. A seat cushion that'll make your chair feel like an extra-plushy throne. The memory foam will conform to your shape and help support your tailbone and lower back. Reviewers say they're much more comfortable sitting in the office chair with the cushion.

    26. A tumbler that'll encourage you to drink water, if you're someone who tends to forget. The coloured bands act as small markers you can slide up once you've passed them. It's a cool way to motivate and track how much water you've had, so you drink enough water every day.

    27. A printer that'll take care of all your needs, including printing, scanning, and faxing documents. It'll connect to your wifi and you can print straight from your phone or tablet using the HP Smart app. It also has double-sided printing, which reviewers like to reduce the amount of paper they use.
