36 home office accessories we recommend for 2023

Optimise your desk setup to WFH in comfort

working from home gadgets uk

First up, we'd recommend investing in a great pair of noise-cancelling earphones that'll work well for blocking out distractions during your video conference calls. Bose's new earbuds are a top pick – they might be pricey, but they last ages and deliver top-quality audio, whether that's at work or away from your home office. After a budget earbud option ? We liked the noise-cancelling Life A2 NC Wireless Earbuds buds from Anker too, and loads of our favourite AirPods alternatives can cancel noise.

working from home gadgets uk

Prefer over-ear headphones ? This noise-cancelling pair could be what you need to help you focus. These pack in a whopping 50 hours of playtime and they're also fast to recharge – if they're running low, a five-minute charge will give you four hours of listening time.

One of the best things about working from the comfort of your own home is that you get to decide the music for the day to keep you motivated. Get that Spotify playlist banging and blast it out on an Amazon Echo – just use the Alexa voice control to skip the song or turn it down if you have a last-minute Zoom or Teams call.

working from home gadgets uk

​​Something you may not have thought about when preparing your own home office is making sure that your chosen setup is comfortable for your body. Work like less of a hunchback by elevating your laptop screen to your eye level . This sturdy and simple version is a good option if you only need to raise it slightly.

working from home gadgets uk

For more flexibility and better ergonomics, we'd suggest going for the affordable Nexstand K2 (or the more premium Roost laptop stand – they share the same design approach). This is a lightweight, adjustable and portable stand that collapses flat for travel, making it ideal for hybrid workers. We use the Nexstand ourselves between home and office and can attest that it's reliable and capable, with a wide variety of height settings.

working from home gadgets uk

We don't all have an office space at home, so if you're setting up for a day of work from your bed (no judgement!), make things more comfortable with this lap desk work surface. This one is cushioned and can be adjusted to get your laptop at the right angle. This Belkin one makes for a good minimalist alternative if you want something that takes up less room.

working from home gadgets uk

If you need to work from your bedroom but you'd rather a non-padded or tray-style version, this folding mini desk will do the job well.

working from home gadgets uk

This sellout office chair is affordable compared to the competition and is comfy, lightweight and adjustable. It's supportive and has armrests that fold up, making it easy to hide away when you're done working.

working from home gadgets uk

The AmazonBasics option isn't luxurious, but if what you need is something that swivels and has an adjustable height, this ticks those boxes and has a simple design, affordable price tag and a one-year warranty.

working from home gadgets uk

We know this looks pretty weird, but this kind of kneeling chair claims to reduce lower back pain and improve your posture by reducing compression of your back muscles. Just know that using it for a whole day of work will probably get tiring for your core, so you may need to alternate between this and a traditional chair.

working from home gadgets uk

If you spend a lot of time on calls and your current headset leaves your head aching, it’s time for a much-needed upgrade. The Zone Vibe 100 from Logitech puts comfort first, with its low weight and soft memory foam ear cups. When it’s time for a call, just flip down the mic for improved sound quality – in our tests, this sounded just as good as a wired mic on our Slack huddles. It’s not noise-cancelling, so won’t help if you work in a loud space, but it’s ideal for all-day wear, whether for music or that crucial Teams or Zoom call.

working from home gadgets uk

It's worth picking up a keyboard that can be connected via Bluetooth or USB and moved away from the laptop or computer to a more comfortable position. It'll help you sit up straight and avoid strain or injury. This one works with Windows – if you need one with a Mac key layout, go for a keyboard like this.

working from home gadgets uk

With its compact design, comfortable keys, super-long battery life and ability to quickly switch the Bluetooth connection between three devices, there's a lot this inexpensive wireless keyboard gets right.

working from home gadgets uk

We've used this for the past year and would recommend it as the best option if you work on a Mac. It has the same quick-switching functionality between three Bluetooth devices as the model above, a responsive typing experience and bright backlights too. One of its handiest features is a button to mute/unmute your microphone – essential if your day is full of Zoom calls.

working from home gadgets uk

Just need a basic mouse? This Logitech one is affordable and designed to be ambidextrous (so you can calibrate it for your needs whether you're left-handed or right-handed).

working from home gadgets uk

We'd recommend pairing the Pebble mouse with the K380 keyboard above. We found it quick to connect whether using it with a Mac or a PC, and we appreciate how its scrolling and clicking are almost silent.

working from home gadgets uk

Looking for a keyboard to go with your Mac or Apple laptop? Apple's own Magic Mouse or Logitech's MX Master 3 are more expensive and pack in some extra features, but you'll get a lot for your money with this one. As the name suggests, it works just about anywhere and tracks on a wide range of surfaces. It's also quick to recharge via USB-C, and has a blazing-fast stainless steel scroll wheel.

working from home gadgets uk

Most ergonomic mice are a bit too bulky, and that's why we love this new smaller vertical mouse designed to help with wrist strain. We handed the petite and affordable Logitech Lift over to our colleague who's suffered from RSI for three years and she loves how it encourages her to relax her hand. Compared to the other ergonomic kit she's tried, it makes it easier to spend less time clicking and scrolling, putting the right buttons where they need to be so you'll barely have to move your fingers to get results. It's ​​available in three colours (black, pink and white) although left-handers are stuck with the black colour only.

working from home gadgets uk

If you're not fussed about colour and just need to print your black-and-white documents, invoices, shipping labels and more, this is a quick and quiet model that'll get the job done.

working from home gadgets uk

If you just need a good-value home printer and know that you'll need colour prints as well as black-and-white, this little model should work well and will only set you back £40.

working from home gadgets uk

A lot of monitors out there are really expensive if all you need is a little more "screen real estate". This one is affordable and capable, with a 1ms GTG response time, Full HD resolution and easy HDMI connectivity.

working from home gadgets uk

Happy to spend a bit more for better specs? Opt for this 4K monitor and you'll have really levelled up your home office. It's a sleek 28-inch display that serves up a great resolution, brightness and high dynamic range.

working from home gadgets uk

The Logitech StreamCam is our favourite webcam under £150 and we reckon it's ideal if you need to look your best on your work calls. It'll keep you looking crisp and clear with its 1080p resolution and it's easy to connect via USB-C.

working from home gadgets uk

There are a lot of similarities between the Brio 500 and the Logitech StreamCam above, but we appreciate the addition of the physical privacy shutter on this 1080p webcam. In our tests, it works brilliantly and is an enormous improvement over the built-in webcam on the Macbook Air. It comes with automatic light correction and noise-correcting mics, plus a great ultra-wide angle lens. Overall, this is a high-quality webcam at a sensible price.

working from home gadgets uk

This phone stand lets you see what's on the screen at a glance, so you can keep up with messages and notifications without it rumbling around on the table during Zoom calls. We also rate this adjustable model, if you want to use it for video calls and need to get a better angle.

working from home gadgets uk

Pop your phone up on a wireless charging stand and you'll see any notifications that arrive and be able to scroll through your Twitter and TikTok feeds all while keeping the battery topped up.

working from home gadgets uk

This massive power bank is a big investment but it delivers super fast charging speeds and has an enormous 24,o00mAh capacity if you need to refuel your laptop while you're working from a coffee shop or just can't find a wall socket.

working from home gadgets uk

If you used to have a footrest at the office and you now struggle to sit comfortably without one, this is a worthwhile investment. It can make a big difference if you're spending long days sitting at your home desk.

working from home gadgets uk

It may feel like a bit of an extravagance but a leather desk mat is one upgrade that really levels up your home office. It both personalises your setup, protects the valuable wood of your desktop, and gives you a smooth space for your mouse. We love this high-quality Harber mat that’s as beautiful as it is functional, and how it has some clever design touches like its discreet cut-out for running charging cables up to your devices. It comes at a bit of a cost, but it's worth it.

working from home gadgets uk

Have you got a laptop with USB-C connectors but need to use a lot of peripheral devices like flash drives, keyboards, mice and more? It can help to have a hub that expands your options, and this seven-in-one Belkin model has every connector most of us need, including HDMI to get your laptop hooked up to a monitor too. If you only ever need to connect one flash drive or USB-A device, though, you can save some cash by just grabbing a simple adapter instead.

working from home gadgets uk

If you've got a laptop with USB-A ports and just need to connect a few extra devices, go for a hub like this Anker model.

working from home gadgets uk

If you work from an iPad and need a handful of extra ports, the StayGo Mini is an ideal companion. It gives you a USB-A port for connecting a flash drive, an HDMI port for connecting to a 4K TV and a classic 3.5 mm audio jack for headphones or speakers. It also includes a USB-C port that supports data transfer as well as passthrough power so you can charge while using the hub. It’s tiny and can sit flush with the body of the iPad, but also comes with a cable if you need to extend it from your tablet.

working from home gadgets uk

If your colleagues can barely see you on your calls, it might be time to get a lamp for your workspace. This one has five brightness levels, five colour temperatures, a flexible head, and its base works as a wireless charger for your phone too.

working from home gadgets uk

If you don't need your lighting solution to double-up as a charging station, this basic desk lamp is great value for £20 and comes in eight different colours to suit your decor.

working from home gadgets uk

Missing your barista-quality coffee from the Pret near the office? A Nespresso pod machine is perfect if you want delicious coffee at home without any fuss.

Don't let your coffee go cold – this mug uses thermal control tech to keep your cuppa at the ideal temperature.

Best Home Office Equipment 2023

Essential work from home gadgets and tech.

Danielle Abraham

You can’t beat the convenience of just rolling out of bed and getting to work. There’s no morning commute or traffic to worry about. Heck, you don’t even need to put on pants. However, working from home comes with a few drawbacks, the biggest being you need to build your own little office or workstation by yourself. That requires some money and a bit of research.

Without any provided office chair , desk, mouse , keyboard , or Internet, that’s a lot of gear to buy for just the basics. The good news is we know a thing or two about working from home and the best tech to get you through the day. Read on for the best home office equipment to make working from home as enjoyable as possible.

TL;DR – These are the Best Home Office Equipment

Logitech mx master 3s, keychron k4 v2 wireless, dell ultrasharp u2422h, eero pro 6e, wonderworker newton, gunnar optiks enigma, mount-it turcom airlight, logitech c920s hd pro webcam, bose noise cancelling headphones 700, jabra evolve2 buds, everlasting comfort seat cushion, mind reader comfy rest, cubii jr2 seated under desk elliptical.

Logitech MX Master 3S

Trackpads have nothing on a mouse when you need to do a lot of text editing, clicking around, or any sort of click-and-drag. Luckily, the Logitech MX Master 3S is prepared to keep working whether you're at your desk using a mousepad, on your couch using your leg or armrest, or in the kitchen using a marble countertop, thanks to its Darkfield sensor. And with adjustable DPI up to 8,000, faster mouse movements are at your fingertips.

Whether you want to connect it to a $10,000 desktop PC or a budget smartphone, a USB dongle and support for Bluetooth LE let the MX Master 3S pair with up to three devices at once. The right-handed ergonomic shape feels great to grip, while the scroll wheels and buttons are responsive and quiet. You even get a whopping 70-day rechargeable battery life, so you won’t have to worry about ever replacing the battery.

Keychron K4 V2 Wireless

The best keyboard is ready for all your work needs, and the Keychron K4 V2 Wireless is it. This 100-key option comes with a full number pad and highly responsive keys, giving you a choice of mechanical Gateron Blue, Red, or Brown switches to get the feel you prefer. However, none of the keys are programmable, and there’s no customization software.

As for connectivity, the Keychron K4 V2 Wireless is ready to work with just about any machine, thanks to Bluetooth connectivity and a USB-C wired connection. You also get swappable keycaps for Mac and Windows. While its rechargeable battery can last up to 72 hours, making it through an entire week of 9-to-5 without charging, and when you have to work late, you'll benefit from the keyboard backlighting, which comes in either white or RGB.

Dell UltraSharp U2422H

If you’re sick of craning your neck to see your laptop’s display or are seeking some extra screen real estate, a standalone monitor like the Dell UltraSharp U2422H makes a world of difference. This 23.8-inch IPS monitor is the perfect size to pair with your desktop or laptop, elevating your comfort and productivity. It even features a stand that’s height, swivel, and tilt are adjustable to help with ergonomics.

The Dell UltraSharp U2422H isn’t lacking in picture quality, delivering a Full HD resolution with a 60Hz refresh rate ideal for viewing documents, doing a bit of editing, or procrastinating on tasks by surfing the web. You’ll enjoy vibrant, accurate colors, but some backlight leakage may degrade darker scenes. Our favorite feature is its extensive ports, and it even has a USB hub to plug in all your peripherals for a speedy connection.

eero Pro 6E

Nothing puts a damper on your productivity more than slow internet or spotty Wi-Fi, and that’s why grabbing a mesh router like the Eero Pro 6E can make a world of difference. While some blame comes down to your ISP, this system can get your home blanketed in a strong Wi-Fi signal, even in a larger home. Once it’s up and running, you’ll enjoy features like Zigbee and Thread compatibility for your smart home devices and advanced online protection with encryption tools and security protocols.

The Eero Pro 6E system uses an unobtrusive, simply-designed main router and matching nodes to create overlapping coverage zones, eliminating dead spots. You get the latest Wi-Fi 6E support and tri-band Wi-Fi, offering a 2.4GHz, a 5GHz, and even a 6Ghz band to use with Wi-Fi 6E devices for some serious throughput. In total, you get up to 2.3 Gbps network speeds and can connect to over 100 different devices.

WonderWorker Newton

Getting the perfect setup for your computer can be difficult, especially if you don’t have an adjustable desk or office chair to work from. The WonderWorker Newton can help you avoid many ergonomic pitfalls on the cheap. For under $70, this laptop stand lets you fine-tune the the placement of your machine for the best view.

The WonderWorker Newton lifts any laptop 17 inches or smaller between 1.6 inches to as high as 18.9 inches using a series of wheels and joints on the legs. You can also easily adjust the angle of the aluminum-alloy tray where your device rests while a stopper prevents it from falling off. That tray is well-ventilated and can support up to 33 pounds, so even the bulkiest gaming laptops should work.

Gunnar Optiks Enigma

Staring at screens all day is simply not good for you, but grabbing pair of glasses from Gunnar Optiks is one thing you can do to save your eyes. Their Engima glasses reduce the amount of constant bright blue light and glare that can harm your vision. They also help reduce any screen flicker while adding slight magnification to your vision.

Now, they aren’t some cheapy glasses that’ll break and stretch after a few uses, as the Enigma’s are incredibly durable with a 3-barrel hinge design and steel construction. You’ll also appreciate their sleek, subtle styling, so you won’t be embarrassed rocking them in a Zoom meeting. The wide field of view and even weight distribution help maximize your comfort and might even make you forget you’re wearing them at all.

Mount-It! Turcom AirLight

When working from home, you lose the bright fluorescents that most offices offer. Though you might not miss them, they help reduce eye strain, especially if you’re working in a darker environment. That’s why you need a solid desk lamp like the Mount-It! Turcom AirLight.

You can easily adjust the light’s position to shine directly where you need it, while the brightness can be changed using touch-sensitive controls. It even uses 32 LED bulbs, letting the light last longer and making it more energy efficient than a traditional bulb. One other added perk you get from the Mount-It! Turcom AirLight is a bladeless fan built-in, so you can keep cool while you work.

Logitech C920S HD Pro Webcam

Working from home means taking a lot of video calls, so it’s probably necessary to upgrade from your basic potato-quality laptop camera to a dedicated one like the Logitech C920S. This webcam records at a much higher quality 1080p resolution and 30 fps. And it won’t break the bank, costing around $70.

It doesn’t stop there, as the Logitech C920S has pretty great autofocus with tracking and is much better with low-light images than a dinky laptop web camera, thanks to an auto-lighting feature. You also get two omnidirectional mics that should suffice for most meetiongs but still can’t compete with a standalone microphone . While it all easily connects to your device using a wired USB-A connection.

Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

Even at home, you deal with noise distractions, whether it be the neighbor's yappy dog or your radiator's constant purr, so the best way to drown out the world is a pair of noise-canceling headphones like the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. Eight microphones inside and outside the earcups monitor sounds, adjusting the ANC strength based on the platforms you use and your personal preferences. There are 11 noise-canceling settings ranging from total noise cancellation to full transparency.

Beyond neutralizing noise, the Bose 700’s overall sound is balanced and clean, while the built-in mics effectively pick up your voice when making calls. You get Bluetooth 5.0 for an easy connection to your devices, and going wired is also an option for extra fidelity. A combination of touch controls and physical buttons make these well-designed, high-quality headphones easy to use and one of the best.

Jabra Evolve2 Buds

When taking calls or video chatting at work each day, it’s essential that you can hear and be heard, and the Jabra Evolve2 Buds are up to the task. These compact earbuds deliver a powerful, clear sound and offer active noise cancellation to block out low rumbles or muffling voices, ensuring you stay focused on a meeting. And when it’s your turn to speak, the four mics on board should have no problem picking up your voice, letting you come across with insane clarity.

The Jabra Evolve2 Buds are a unique pair of wireless earbuds because, in addition to Bluetooth 5.2 support, you also get a USB dongle for a more stable connection. You simply plug the dongle into your computer, and you should be good to go, eliminating the worry of accidentally dropping an important call. Given their wireless nature, battery life is everything, and 8 hours of listening time with ANC on means you’ll be all set for an entire workday—and the case delivers another 25 hours of charge.

Everlasting Comfort Seat Cushion

If you’re not ready to splurge on a high-quality office chair but want to make your seat as comfortable as possible, the Everlasting Comfort Seat Cushion is your solution. It delivers a thick helping of memory foam to support you and mold to your body's contours. Your back, legs, and tailbone should feel great thanks to its ergonomic “u” shape that improves posture and relieves pressure.

The Everlasting Comfort Seat Cushion uses a breathable cover, so you don’t need to worry about your legs and bottom getting sweaty from sitting too long. That cover is also machine washable, making it easier to keep clean than your seat's original surface likely is.

Mind Reader Comfy Rest

Sitting still all day can be made worse if your legs aren't in a good position. In particular, if your seat is too high, you can cause your body some undue stress. But a footrest can help you get a more ergonomic position without needing to go out and buy a new chair.

The Mind Reader Comfy Rest is up to the task with three different height levels to dial in the ideal position for your feet. It also has bumps all along its surface, letting you give yourself a foot massage while you sit. Even if you're tall enough for your seat, this footrest can let you shift your position from time to time to stay comfortable and keep your blood flowing.

Cubii JR2

While sitting at your desk, your hands are typing and mousing around, but your legs are probably idle or fidgeting a little. The Cubii JR2 lets them do more, as it’s a mini elliptical machine that sits under your desk, so you can get some pedaling action while working. It's not an intense workout that'll distract you, but it’s enough to keep the blood flowing.

With the Cubii JR2, there are eight levels of resistance you can dial in, from pedaling with ease to a level that'll take a little extra push from your leg muscles. A built-in LCD lets you see how much you've done, and you can put those stats into the Cubii app to track progress. If you're done working and want to keep moving, this machine is easy to move over to the couch, while its low-profile design makes it simple to tuck away when not in use.

Best office gadgets 2023: Top picks for your desk

Whether you're customising your office, or making the home a better place to work from, these gadgets can make your life easier.

Whether you're fully in the office, dedicated to your home office, or now operating a hybrid system, you'll be spending a lot of time at your chosen desk.

With this in mind, it is worth having the best office space possible. To achieve this, there is a huge range of different devices, gadgets and tools that you can use to make a desk a home.

We've gathered our top picks for the best office gadgets and listed them all done below.

The best office gadgets in 2023

Rocketbook smart reusable notebook.

reusable notebook and cloth

This reusable notebook wipes clean, so it's an eco-friendly way of taking notes. After using a Pilot Frixion erasable pen to write as normal, just wipe away your work with a damp cloth. So it works like a whiteboard, but feels like pen and paper.

There's also an app which lets you scan and store your notes, so you can save and send your work and doodles.

Writing desk mat

© Design Shed

If you're an avid note taker while you work, this writable desk pad could be the perfect investment for you. It comes with a mouse pad side, and a whiteboard desk side. This means you can continue to use your mouse and keyboard as you normally would, while also being able to take notes on the things that matter right on the desk.

It comes with three pens and an eraser, and uses non-slip technology to keep everything in place.

2 in 1 headphone stand with wireless charger

© Avantree

If you want to keep your headphones safe, and your desk looking aesthetically pleasing, a good headphone stand is a worthwhile investment. This one from the brand Avantree offers a nice wood and metal stand, complete with a small tray for your extra bits.

Smart backpack

Black smart backpack

Finding a practicable bag that is work (and after work drinks) appropriate isn’t always an easy task but with a padded laptop compartment, USB charging port and secret pockets for valuables, the Nordace Siena does the job nicely. There’s even a fleece-lined sunglasses compartment which is ideal for those of us who regularly lose or sit on our favourite pair of shades.

This elegant rucksack also works well if you’re travelling by plane thanks to the luggage strap which slips onto your suitcase handle. This means you can keep all of your luggage in one place when you’re darting through the airport.

More like this

The straightforward yet smart design is also available in beige, blue, green, red and grey. The bag’s inoffensive colours and style make it appropriate for a variety of outings.

See our full list of the best smart backpacks for other cool options.

Microsoft Arc bluetooth wireless mouse

Sage Microsoft Wireless Mouse

Have you ever fancied flattening your computer mouse and popping it in your pocket? Well, you are in luck.

This nifty office gadget from Microsoft has a flexible design which straightens out for convenient packing. When flattened, the device switches off so you save power when it’s not in use. The mouse wakes up when you return it to its curved shape in your hand. Pretty neat.

The Arc shapes itself to fit your palm, so this is very much your own personal office gadget.

It requires Microsoft 10/8.1, has a wireless range of 5m in an office environment and connects through Bluetooth. The innovative full scroll plane allows you to scroll both horizontally and vertically, so practicality as well as appearance and comfort have all been taken into consideration here.

Take a look at our top cool gadgets for 2023 for more tech inspiration.

Mini desk hoover

Mini Henry Desk Hoover

If you haven’t already been introduced, meet mini Henry the Hoover.

Measuring just 10 by 6.5cm, this novelty office gadget picks up your biscuit and sandwich crumbs so you can have a clean workspace. It is powered by 2 AA batteries and has a bendy nozzle for those spots that tend to get missed by the duster. You can finally get rid of those infuriating bits of dust that sit on your keyboard and annoy you all day.

White Temperature Control Smart Mug

With such a hefty price tag, you’d be correct to think this quite ordinary-looking mug has magical powers.

The Ember Mug² is a smart mug which not only keeps your coffee hot but allows you to set a specific drinking temperature using the Ember app on your phone. The app also notifies you when your cuppa has reached your preferred temperature. So there should be fewer burnt tongues and sad cold cups of tea in the office.

With a built-in battery, your tailored brew stays at the selected temperature for 80 minutes which gives you plenty of time to get distracted in the office and forget you even made a cup of tea. You can even pop it on the charging coaster to keep it fuelled up and ready to go.

Someone pinching your mug at work just got that little bit more serious.

Groov-e ares LED desk lamp with wireless charging pad & clock

Black desk lamp with charger

The Swiss Army knife of desk lamps, this office gadget has many functions.

We’ll start with the LED lamp. It has five brightness levels as well as three different light modes to choose from, so whether you need to be woken up by a bright light or fancy a dim evening glow, you’re a bit spoilt for choice.

The base of the lamp is a 5W wireless phone charger which is always convenient to have in the office. All you need to do is place your device on the base.

The stem has an LCD display which tells you the time and the date. It also works as an alarm clock so if your office naps are getting out of control, you can set an alarm to make sure you don’t miss your meeting. This feature also makes this a suitable bedside lamp.

It doesn’t stop there. If you’re curious about the temperature - and let’s face it, that’s always a hot topic when it comes to office chat - the multi-purposed gadget tells you that too.

And as well as having so many features, it’s a pretty pleasant addition to the desk with the faux leather finish giving it a smart look. Ok and one more thing, it is collapsible, so you can fold it away, making it very easy to transport.

Cool office gadgets.

Whether you work from home, in the office 5 days a week, or only a few days a week, some desk gadgets feel necessary, whether they are just there to look lovely or serve a purpose to assist you while working or taking a break.

When it comes to cool office gadgets, it doesn't get any cooler (or possibly warmer) than USB cup warmers to ensure you're properly caffeinated to finish that report, as well as games to play to help you get through the day, such as showcasing your strength with a Desktop Strongman, just like at the fair. Perhaps you'd want to use your leisure time in between calls to practise your sports with a game of Desktop Basketball to make your day a slam dunk.

Must-Have Office Gadgets

Cluttered desks are one factor that may be keeping you from being as productive as you would like. The cups keep flowing and the paper is everywhere; don't worry, it happens to the best of us, but IWOOT has a solution. Make your desk, whether at work or home, look its best by using a car vacuum with a USB adaptor so no one on Teams knows you've been snacking on the job.

Speaking of productivity, make sure you have all of the necessary cables and that all of your devices are fully charged so that you can complete all of your tasks before the clock strikes 5 p.m., which you can easily do with USB charger cables and a USB hub to ensure you are fully prepared from anywhere.

The Best Gadgets for Any Desk

Bring your own USB desk fan to work during a heatwave to keep cool and avoid relying on erratic air conditioning. When you're working hard and need to de-stress but it's still too early to kick off your shoes and have a drink, a stress ball to squeeze throughout the day and divert your attention away from that one person who hasn't really understood your email could be just what you need. To stay calm and upbeat until the final email of the day, try adding an aroma diffuser to distract yourself from the terrifying noise of the Teams ringtone.

You can now express your love for your favourite franchises while working after dark with desktop lights, adding to the list of must-have home gadgets. With this assortment of unique lights,  Star Wars fans can find the Force to keep working with The Child lamp to keep them company. You can even ensure that you seem camera-ready at all times with the Desk Clamp Selfie Light, so you can always impress on video calls.

From mesh networks to lap desks, here’s how The Verge’s staffers create their workspaces

It’s been over two years since many of us started working from home due to the pandemic, and if you haven’t yet adjusted your workspace to accommodate your needs, then it’s probably time to get to it.

Whether you’ve set yourself up in the guest bedroom, on your living room couch, or in a walk-in closet, you may need a little extra effort to make it possible to type comfortably, meet online, or just concentrate. Sometimes it means buying a new desk, lamp, or monitor; sometimes, it just means finding a household item that will make life a little easier.

We asked the staff of The Verge what they’ve been using to make their work-at-home situations more practical, more pleasant, or simply more possible. Here are some of the answers we got.

Tech products

Apple airpods pro.

Apple AirPods Pro

I basically live in my AirPods Pro during the day. They let me listen to music, catch Slack pings, and take calls, all with the added benefit of some noise cancellation to help drown out outside noise. Their range is also great for my apartment — I can be anywhere in the house without losing connection to my computer, which is really nice if I need to step away from my desk to, say, microwave my second cookie of the afternoon. — Jay Peters, news writer

AirPods Pro (first-gen) with MagSafe Charging Case

The last-gen AirPods Pro improve upon the regular AirPods with better sound quality, excellent active noise cancellation, and immersive spatial audio.

Phone as webcam

Nexus 6p

Webcams are no longer a struggle to find in 2022, but if you want to save money, turning your phone into a fully functional webcam is surprisingly easy, cost-effective, and can yield good results. I already had a  Nexus 6P  sitting around, and  with these steps  that work on most Android and iOS devices, I now have a phone-meets-webcam. It’s got picture quality roughly on par with a standalone webcam, which might cost you around $100. If you want a stand that can angle it during calls, I’d suggest picking up one of  these Joby GorillaPod tripods  that includes a phone clip. — Cameron Faulkner, reviewer

Joby GripTight GorillaPod Stand Pro

Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2

Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2

While I’m working off a MacBook, this Satechi hub has been a lifesaver for plugging in podcasting mics and any other gear I’m suddenly using on my own. — Adi Robertson, senior reporter

Rechargeable batteries

Eneloop batteries

I go through tons of batteries with my flash when photographing at home, and I find that these rechargeable batteries last so much longer than regular single-use batteries. Not only do they save me trips to the store and keep more batteries out of the landfills, but they also save me money in the end. — Amelia Holowaty Krales, senior photo editor

Panasonic AA NiMH 2,550mAh rechargeable batteries

Caldigit ts3 plus thunderbolt 3 dock  .

CalDigit TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock

This Thunderbolt 3 dock lets me switch my whole desk setup (keyboard, mouse, speakers, ethernet, display, external storage drives, and microphone) from one computer to another by just moving one cable. I plug all of my peripherals into the dock and then just use the one Thunderbolt cable to hook up my Mac or whatever Windows machine I need to test at the moment. It also has a very useful high-speed SD card slot on the front, which is great for whenever I need to dump images from my camera onto my computer. [Note: the CalDigit TS3 Plus is no longer available; it’s been replaced by the TS4.] — Dan Seifert, deputy editor

CalDigit TS4 Thunderbolt 4 Dock

Google nest wifi router.

Last year, I installed a Google Nest Wifi router with a mesh point. I’ve had a lot of networking equipment over the years, and this was immediately the best. And it was extremely easy to set up. A year later, my system with one router and three points is still going strong. — TC Sottek, executive editor

Google Nest Wifi bundle

Google’s Nest Wifi router and Point extender have an unassuming design. The router has two ethernet ports, while the Point can be used as a smart speaker.

  Ultrawide monitor

working from home gadgets uk

An ultrawide monitor is the best purchase I ever made for working from home. It’s so big I have to physically lean from side to side to see it all. I can have three full-size windows up at the same time or countless windows overlapping. (Right now, I have nine different windows open, and it doesn’t feel cramped at all.) Mine is an old LG 34UM94-P that they don’t make anymore — it looks like there is an updated version, the LG 34WN80C-B. However, any monitor that is at least 34 inches in size with 1440p or better resolution is what I recommend. — Dan Seifert

Home office helpers, fully jarvis bamboo standing desk.

Fully Jarvis bamboo standing desk

We heard from two staffers about this desk:

I love my Jarvis desk from Fully. It’s a solidly built desk that looks great in my office, and it’s really handy to have the option to sit or stand while working. If you’re considering one, I highly recommend spending the extra cash for the extended-range height, which lets the desk get lower for sitting and higher for standing, and the programmable height switcher, which lets you preset heights that you can switch back and forth to just by pressing a button.

I also sprang for the $29 casters so I could wheel the desk around my apartment, which lets my wife and I use it as a mobile entertainment system. When we’re done working for the day, we can roll the desk over to our comfy chairs and watch Netflix or play Animal Crossing on the desk’s monitor. — Jay Peters

I have the Jarvis, too, just in a larger size. It has served me well for about four years now. It’s a comfortable, stable, spacious desk that has more versatility than typical desk options. — Dan Seifert

Fully Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk

This popular standing desk quickly and quietly adjusts from a top height of 50 inches to a level low enough for you to sit on the floor.

LapGear designer lap desk

LapGear designer lap desk

I should work at a desk more, but I spend a lot of time working from a couch. It’s bad for me, but also very comfortable. Using a lap desk like this one helps me at least pretend to be a little more conscientious about my posture; plus, it’s helpful for writing on physical paper (or when my laptop gets too hot). — Chaim Gartenberg, senior reporter

Huanuo monitor mount stand

Huanuo monitor mount stand

This monitor mount brings my screen up to a nice height so that I don’t hunch over, and it’s the tallest one I’ve found. Other monitor arms I tried just weren’t tall enough for me when I was standing while working — and I’m not that tall at 5 feet, 11 inches. The mount also lets me adjust my monitor to exactly the right height for movies or Animal Crossing when I’m using my desk as a mobile entertainment center. (Note: This monitor mount is no longer available; however, there is a similar model.) — Jay Peters

Nespresso Inissia espresso machine

Nespresso Inissia espresso machine

I’m hopelessly addicted to iced lattes, and I finally invested in this espresso machine with my stimulus check. It makes waking up in the morning a little more exciting when I don’t have to French press my coffee. And it came with a milk frother! — Makena Kelly, reporter

Ello Devon glass tumbler

Ello Devon glass tumbler

I never drink enough water. I just seem to forget to, and I get headaches from dehydration, but something about this bottle helps remind me. Maybe it’s the design? I love it! — Amelia Holowaty Krales

Herman Miller Sayl chair

Herman Miller Sayl chair

The desk chair that I use is the Herman Miller Sayl, which used to sell for around $500 — the low end of that company’s lineup, believe it or not. I almost purchased this chair in mid-2020 when the chair I had was really causing me physical anguish, but Vox Media allowed me to borrow it from our NYC office. So I immediately drove there, stuffed it into my car, and brought it home. My cats and I really like it. (Note: The chair now costs over $900, but you can still get it for around $600 if you eliminate several of the adjustable features.) — Cameron Faulkner

Notebook and pen

True Writer Classic Sea Glass ballpoint pen

While all of my work and most of my writing happen on my computer, sometimes it’s easier (especially for sudden phone calls or when I don’t want to switch out of a video) to simply turn to the notebook I keep next to my laptop and jot down a note or two. And I’ve found that using a classy pen is not only good for my morale but makes it a lot less likely that I’ll find myself out of ink (or with a hand cramp) when I need to get something important written quickly. Currently, I’m using a True Writer ballpoint pen from Levenger that I got as a birthday present, but any pen that makes you feel good will do. — Barbara Krasnoff, reviews editor

True Writer Classic Sea Glass ballpoint pen

Update May 16th, 2022, 5:30PM ET: This article was originally published on April 28th, 2020, and has been updated several times to include changes in prices and add some new models.

Uh oh! The crypto collapse has reached the real financial system

I don’t think meta knows it’s a game company, meet the companies trying to keep up with chatgpt, ford’s self-repossessing car patent is a nightmare of the connected-car future, apple will reportedly launch an m3-equipped imac later this year.
