    1. A gorgeous adjustable lap desk so you can feel like the boss while working in your jammies.

    Promising Review: “This little tray is well-built, with legs that are very sturdy. The height is perfect for going over my legs when I'm sitting in a chair using my laptop. I love that it has a place for my phone and tablet, as well.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.86 (available in three colors).

    2. A 10-foot lightning or micro USB charging cable to make sure your devices stay charged, even if the closest outlet is far from your bed.

    Promising Review: “I eat through Apple lightning chargers like candy. There are so many bad ones on the market that I am extremely relieved to have found one that is reliable. A cable will typically last me like three or four months. However, I’ve had this cable for more than eight months now, and it is still going. I travel a lot, so my cables are tossed around hotel rooms and shoved into my bag a million times a week. So for it to still be kicking is a great testament to its quality!” —Will

    Promising Review: “I usually cannot wear earbuds because they are always too large for my ears. However, these are perfect because they aren't designed to go very far into the ear. I've been using them for more than a month and haven't noticed any change in sound quality!” —K

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    11. A plush reversible comforter to keep your booty forever comfy while sitting on your bed.
