Whether your friends are remote workers or you have a family member who loves spending time in their home office, treating them to cool and useful office accessories is a great way to treat them this holiday season. The perfect gift for someone who works from home should enhance their productivity, be visually pleasing, and make them comfortable. To take the guesswork out of finding the best home gifts, below are gift ideas for a home office they will love.

1. Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug

Nothing ruins a work day more than a lukewarm cup of coffee! The good news is that smart mugs exist. Your gift recipient doesn’t have to reheat their coffee in the microwave; get them this Ember temperature mug instead. There is a good reason why this smart mug has over 6 thousand reviews and a 4.6-star rating.

It can keep a coffee mug perfectly hot for up to an hour on a single charge. Another bonus of this smart mug is that it be controlled with a smartphone to set the temperature. The mug also auto-sleeps when it senses that there is no liquid. It also comes in a variety of colors like red and white. (But if you were to ask me, I think black is a great option.)

2. Under Desk Treadmill

Are you shopping for a family member that loves to stay fit? Then this under-desk treadmill is a good idea, especially if they don’t have the time to go for a morning jog.

They can attend a video conference, answer emails, and accomplish other things on their to-do lists while getting some steps in. It is a great way for them to stay active while getting some work done. These can be expensive, so it’s not a bad idea to make it a group gift too.

3. Cable Management Box

This practical gift will make their office space nice and tidy and keep their cords from collecting dust. There’s room for power strips as well as USB, tablet, and cell phone cords. Plus, the simple minimalist design can fit any office decor.

4. Bose Bluetooth Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

Working from home comes with its downsides, like screaming children in the background and lawn mower sounds that make it hard to concentrate. Thankfully, these wireless headphones exist. The best thing about these headphones is that your gift receiver can choose the quiet feature to activate the noise-canceling mode.

They can also personalize their audio as the adjustable EQ allows them to set the bass, mid-range, and treble levels to their personal preferences.

5. LED Desk Lamp with 10W Fast Wireless Charger

This smart desk lamp will be their new favorite home office gift. Not only does it give a computer desk a modern look, but it also provides a lot of light. Your friend or family member can choose seven brightness levels and five color modes.

The lamp also features a wireless fast-charging port! So while they are working, they can charge their cell phone. And if your loved one forgets to turn off the lamp, it will automatically switch off after 40 to 60 minutes.

6. Under Desk Drawer Organizer

Does your gift recipient have small space on their home office desk? No problem! This unique home office gift will provide additional storage space for their stationery and papers.

All they have to do is use the provided non-marking adhesive tape to install the desk organizer. This is great if they don’t know how to use drilling tools to install things.

7. Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

It’s pretty hard to do your best work when your back hurts from sitting for long hours. If your loved one is experiencing this, help them achieve a good posture while they are working with this kneeling ergonomic office chair.

The advantage of this style is that it will put your friend in an upright position. It will also lengthen their hip flexors (which get tight when sitting). Additionally, the chair does a great job of releasing pressure on the glutes and hamstring muscles, while promoting a neutral lumber spine.

8. Portable Lap Desk with Pillow Cushion

Sometimes the comfiest place to complete work is on the couch. But instead of your family member putting their laptop on their lap, gift them this portable desk.

It has a pillow cushion underneath to make holding the desk on their lap comfortable. Plus, your loved one will also love the cellphone slot on the platform.

9. Google Nest Hub

When they are too busy to check who is ringing the doorbell, your family member can use their Google nest hub to help them see who it is without leaving their home office.

They can also control other things in their home, such as the lights, thermostats, and more, all from the comfort of their own home office.

10. Gel Memory Foam Keyboard Wrist Rest Pad

Having your hand on a work surface for hours gets very uncomfortable. So to ensure that your loved one isn’t experiencing this discomfort, spoil them with this wrist rest pad.

It is made of comfortable memory foam and a soft smooth breathable material. The rest pad also features a non-skid rubber base. This provides a heavy grip preventing sliding or unwanted movement.

11. Stand-Up Desk

An easy way for your friend not to slump over their desk for hours is with this adjustable standing desk. The desk has 3 preset buttons that allow them to customize their desired heights.

It also features an L-shaped table top which is great for adding another desktop. And if they want to sit down, it is easy to switch the desk from a standing desk to a sitting one.
