1. An anti-fatigue comfort mat that'll help relieve foot, knee, and back pain while you're using your standing desk. When you need a good stretch (or two!) or a change of pace, get up and stand on this!

2. An orthopedic pain relief seat cushion for helping with tailbone pain, sciatica, leg and lower back pain, and encouraging better posture (I know you're guilty of slumping). It's made with memory foam too so it'll mold itself to the shape of your bottom!

3. A lap desk to beat all lap desks. It has a built-in mouse pad, wrist pad, and a phone/tablet holder so wherever you are in the house, whether it's your couch, in bed, or at the kitchen table, your productivity levels will stay top-notch!

4. A collapsible floral file holder because henceforth, thou shall have no excuse to keep thy bills, mail, notebooks, and other documents in a place such that thou falters and flounders only to hit thine head.

5. A leak-proof and time-marked water bottle to keep by you because I know you forget to drink water while you're sitting there all day. The time marker will conveniently remind you when to take another sip and keep you hydrated.

6. Or a Bougie water bottle that has double-walled insulation and a leak-proof flip lid (so you don't have to keep unscrewing the cap), which makes getting your daily dose easy. Plus, it doesn't do that thing where the water tastes stale after a few hours (GREAT). The peony bottle is from their new couture collection — gorgeous! Fun fact: this holds a entire bottle of wine if that's what gets you through the day. Bougie indeed!

7. A mini fridge you will come to highly appreciate when you're ~in the zone~ and cannot risk a distracting trip to the kitchen. Stock your fave snacks for the day and you'll have all you need!

8. A cool sitting ball that'll not only help relieve back pain but also engage your abs and core, promote good posture, and help you stretch. This is the easiest way to work out while sitting, I daresay!
