9. Flexispot EC1 Electric White Standing Desk Adjustable Height Desk

If you are a reader of my blog, you know how much standing desks have changed my life. While I don’t have an actual standing desk I do have a desk riser (which is a bit more affordable) & my back and neck pain is GONE.

“I’ve been looking for a standing desk to add to my workspace due to long hours of sitting. This is the PERFECT desk!”

13. Clear Cable Clips – Cord Holders – Self Adhesive

Going along with my first home office organization idea, these are great for your smaller cords like your phone charger. The acrylic makes these virtually invisible which I love.

18. Industrial Design 4-Tier Bookcase

Is any home office ever really complete without a bookshelf? Bookshelves also work really well for storing miscellaneous items.

“These bookshelves are very well made! They’re also a lot larger than I thought they would be. I wanted bookshelves with a modern look, that were big enough for my books but didn’t visually overwhelm my wall. These are perfect! “

19. Decor Wall Mounted Shelves

On the same note as bookshelves being great for storage, so are floating shelves! I’m obsessed with these sleek black ones & they can hold up to 22 pounds.

This is the attachment I put onto my treadmill to work while I walk. It’s universal & great quality so if you already have a treadmill, this is for you.

“Great for working from home. Getting in way less steps versus going to the office, so was looking at a few kinds of treadmill stands and I am glad that I went with this one.”

This is an amazing option if you already have a standing desk or desk riser. These slip right under your desk and you get your steps in while working.

“I wanted a simple compact treadmill, i didn’t want lots of buttons and electronics. I think I picked the perfect one. Simple, sleek and nicely made. Just walking a little everyday will help me be healthier and de-stress so far.”

24. 300ML Essential Oil Diffuser

I love essential oils for all of the calming & de-stressing benefits they bring. This one is the perfect size for an office & lasts for hours.

“I looooove this thing! So easy to use! Easy set up and instructions. Not so small that you have to refill it all the time, but not so huge that it takes over the room. It’s cute and sleek and the lights are very pleasant.”

If you know me, you know this is my go-to planner (purchased 3 years in a row now). This is so simple & sleek and keeps all of my scheduling in one easy place. I plan on repurchasing every year!

“This is a nice black spiral-bound book for use on a desk or open on your lap. It has a nice day calendar for writing in accomplishments, appointments, and any info that you need to keep track of. It is handy!”

27. 32 Oz Borosilicate Glass Water Bottle with Times to Drink

In 2022, one of my resolutions was to stop using so much plastic, for my health and for the environment. But I didn’t want to sacrifice my current water bottle with the hours to drink on it. Enter this cutesy glass water bottle with times to drink on it! Plus, it comes in so many different colors.

“This bottle is awesome. I have tried other bottles in the past and this is just as good if not better than some of the top products, but it comes in at a lower price than those other brands. The huge size makes it really convenient to keep at my work desk to make sure I’m staying hydrated throughout the day.”

How cute is this retro keyboard & mouse combo?! I’m obsessed with the style of this (& I heard the keys have great ASMR clacking noises).

“This is a very large keyboard in comparison to that of my laptop, but I love it. The clackety sounds are so satisfying when I’m working. It’s just one of those little things that brings you joy, ya know? Definitely visually appealing.”
