    21 Essentials You'll Probably Need If You're Working From Home Right Now

    Because working from home does, unfortunately, involve an element of working.

    As tempting as it can be to curl up on the sofa or in bed when working from home, it's important to create a designated 'working' space that's separate from your ~relaxing~ space. This will not only help you to be more productive with your work, you’ll also be able to properly detach at the end of the working day – so here are a few things to help you out!

    1. It's a good idea to wear something other than your jim-jams to get yourself in the working ~mood~, but nobody expects you to wear a three-piece suit! Try this super soft jumper and jogger set instead.

    2. Good lighting in your workspace is essential, and so is this cute cactus desk lamp that doubles up as storage for your pens!

    3. And this lil' flamingo is quite obviously a home office *staple*.

    4. This memory foam pillow will help to make your dining room chair feel like a swanky office one.

    5. This adjustable monitor stand has some super smart spaces for extra storage.

    6. This cable tidy will keep all your essential chargers close to hand – it's the little things that make a difference.

    7. This marble-design desk organiser will give you a place to keep all your small bits and bobs.

    8. And here's a pretty gold tone file rack to store your larger work things in style!

    9. If you’re not feeling too great - or simply don’t have a suitable desk space - this laptop tray is great for when you need to work from bed or the sofa.

    10. And this clever table slides into the side of your sofa, for a space-saving makeshift desk that will come in handy as an extra coffee table when you’re not using it for work!

    11. What's the point in working from home without some proper home comforts?! This microwavable heating pad is still pretty necessary during the typical British springtime.

    12. You can use this deeply bougie hourglass timer to remind you to take the occasional turn about the room (Jane Austen knew what she was talking about here!)

    13. This unique journal will help you to keep feeling inspired to create!

    14. This colouring book will make you feel like you've escaped to an enchanted forest for a few minutes – because it's important to take your eyes away from the screen sometimes!

    15. And it's a good idea to take some time out for you – like writing in this six-minutes-a-day mindfulness diary.

    16. This Himalayan pink salt candle holder set will help to make your work space feel cosy and keep the air clean.

    17. Your manager can't judge you for using these fun colourful pens to scribble down your meeting notes.

    18. This mug will let you bring out your ~dark~ side.

    19. And this warming plate will keep your drink nice and toasty.

    20. This home planner will help you to organise the whole family's schedules, so everyone can stay on top of their routines.

    21. And finally, what was working from home actually invented for if it wasn't for the purpose of wrapping yourself up in this mermaid blanket?!
