4.A pack of NeuroGum made with a blend of caffeine and nootropics, designed to give you energy five times faster than regular coffee — without jitters or sluggishness afterward. That 3 p.m. WFH slump when you suddenly have the attention span of a goldfish just met its match.
5.A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy that will be a total lifesaver if you’re working away from your usual comfy office chair, and need a quick fix in the meantime.

7.A pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones so you can go into full ~flow~ free of all the distractions in your space (read: the temptation of Netflix, the 15 Reddit tabs open on your browser, and your cat who for some reason thinks your keyboard is his own personal bed).
8.A time-marked water bottle to remind you to stay hydrated during the day, which is especially important when you’re WFH — it’s even easier to feel anxious or tired when you’re on your lonesome, and being dehydrated can def make it even worse.

13.A keyboard cleaning gel, because if you are anything like me then working from home means that your laptop is working overtime both as a keyboard and as a lunch tray (“Alexa, how do you get Cheez-It crumbs out of a laptop fan???).
14.An itty bitty desk trash can to collect all your odds and ends, like used tissues and wrappers and that stray noodle that must have fallen out of your leftover pad thai when you were going to town on it earlier (is there any world more lawless than WFH?).
15.A glorious assortment of snacks, because if we’re all being honest with ourselves, 80% of the reason anyone works from an actual office is to get those free snacky snacks. You deserve to look forward to the bliss of popping open that 3 p.m. sugar rush.
16.A set of nonstick, reusable toaster oven bags so you can make grilled cheese and paninis for quick breakfasts and lunches at home instead of sending six messages to coworkers saying “Out for a walk!!” and spending $15 on a wilting salad.
17.Plus a bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey, so you can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to WFH meals that might otherwise feel totally “blah.” (No offense to microwave pizza! She’s trying her best.)
18.A delightfully bendy desk lamp that not only charges right up with a USB cord, but will also serve as a port to charge your phone. Behold this glorious intersection of style and function!

23.An adjustable foot hammock you can easily install under your desk to keep your feet elevated (and maybe help you resist the temptation of spending the *whole* day working from your bed).
24.A sneaky lil’ adhesive utensil drawer you can stick under any desk for easy access to your pencils and Post-its — an especially convenient solution if you’re not planning to *always* be WFH, and just want a quick fix for a vanity or cheap desk in the meantime.
25.A set of elegant matching desk accessories to bring some order to your space. An organized space = an organized mind = you’ll be so good at working from home that you’ll be tempted to start a lifestyle blog about it (you do you, y’all).
26.A set of decorative succulents to give your space a sense of calm and order (and also to low key Instagram story your setup and show off your ~WFH aesthetic~).

29.A set of purrrfectly precious cat pens to set on your desk, for no real reason other than they will make you happy, and we all deserve a little happiness in our lives right meow.
Promising review: “These pens write really well, are superfine, and pretty adorable. I didn’t think I would like them so much and was worried they would smear really bad (I’m left-handed), but they don’t. The caps stay on nice and tight, easy to stick on the end of the pen while you’re using it and they don’t fall off. Now I just have to make sure people don’t steal them from my desk…” —Laurabear
