When you’re engrossed in your work, it’s easy to forget your cuppa quietly going cold next to you. Enter the Hug in a Cup Warming Coaster from Spoilt. Just plug it into a USB port and let it keep your hot drinks at a toasty temperature. It also helps minimise those tempting trips to the kitchen. Because it's a constant snack battle when you’re working from home.

It’s a small table with adjustable legs and six levels of incline. You can take your work from the breakfast nook to the balcony without missing a meeting request.
Keep the tools of your trade spick and span with this double-layered laptop brush from Mr Wares. Cleverly designed and made in Germany, it's made from antistatic bristles that are ideal for dusting your screen. Then the row of longer, firmer bristles dislodge all those stubborn crumbs from your keyboard.

It has a built-in wireless charger, perfect for charging your phone or AirPods. Nest makes it easy to pick up and move your station without untangling a mess of tech.
Untangling cable tidy
Cables – the knotted eyesore of every desk setup. We’ve all had to up our home tech lately. Make offers some stylish products to keep those cables under control. The Orbitkey desk mat cable holder is a magnetic toggle that sits along the top of a desk mat. It'll keep your cables in place and in order.
Need a little help concentrating? Need to keep calm in the face of a crushing deadline? Harness the power of aromatherapy. Get some essential oils from Essensorie and a portable diffuser from Muji. You'll be able to enjoy a signature scent wherever you set up. Add soothing moisture to the air with a quirky cactus-shaped humidifer from Auv Home.
DIY desk organising kit
One of the beauties of working from home is being able to put your own personal style on your workspace. And that includes your stationery supplies. At Milligram, you can pick up an elegant Rifle Paper Co. stationery set that is as pretty as it is practical. It comes filled with everything from paperclips to pads and pushpins.
Wireless charging dock
Our phones have become our mini offices, where we take calls, check emails and take part in Zoom meetings. No wonder their batteries are feeling it! Keep a sleek wireless charging station from the Museums Victoria Store on your desk and just rest your phone on it. It’ll juice up your phone without having to plug it into its charger.
Rechargeable desk lamp
The right lighting is vital for any home office. You don’t want glare on your screen and your space needs to be well lit to avoid eyestrain. Try this fashionable, rechargeable lamp from Calmatronics. The goose neck lets you angle the light to suit you and the clamp will keep it firmly in place. Its minimal design will slip right into most home decors.
