43 Best Work From Home Gifts


Working from home is great if you do it once in a while, but if you have to do it every day, then it gets a lot harder:

Working at home, alone, in an environment that isn't designed for work and where home blends with office can make you feel lonely, less productive, tired, stressed...

So if you know anybody who usually works from home and you're the one looking for ideas to improve your telecommuting time, here's a working from home gift guide full of ideas for you.

Just in case you don't want to read the entire list now,  here are my 5 top working from home gift choices.

So, let's have a look at some general gift ideas for anybody working from home before looking at more specific gifts:

Best General Work From Home Gift Ideas

The Just Bento CookBook

Eating at home every day can end up being boring if you don't have a lot of time and all you eat are leftovers. 

Get lots of healthy delicious ideas to spice up your lunch time with The Just Bento Cookbook and use the Bento Boxes at the office or out in the garden.

Laptop Lap Desk

One of the good things about working from home is that you can work anywhere you want: from the home office, the kitchen table or the sofa. 

And having a comfortable laptop lap desk with room for a laptop and mouse makes things a lot easier.

And for those people that like to work from their bed, here's a multifunctional bed table.

Eye Caring Lamp

This Taotronics Dimmable Eye Caring Lamp reduces eye fatigue thanks to its non-flickering light.
This lamp has 5 colour modes, 7 brightness levels and rotating head means it's very versatile and can be used both as a desk lamp and as a table lamp.

It includes a USB charging port as well.

A Door Sign

Such a small thing, but it lets your family known when you're available and when you're not, so you're not distracted over who stole the last pack of packet of Cheetos.

Echo Dot

Lots of people have Echo Dots nowadays, but they're also a clever addition to the home office.

They can be used to play background music, set reminders and alarms.

But there are also a lot of Alexa Skills that make it useful at work, such as being able to add tasks to your Todoist, do a 7-minute workout, do guided meditations when you have a break...

Best Work From Home Gifts FOR UNDER $15

Kinetic Desk Toy

When you're in front of a screen working on several documents and reports all day long, it can get pretty stressful. 

But a few spins of this little toy can help to calm even the most highly strung telecommuter.

USB Clock Fan

This is more of a novelty gift, but doesn't a bit of a breeze perk people up?

USB Stick

We all have cloud storage nowadays, but sometimes it's also good to have a copy of your files to take with you when you don't want to send them by email or share them in the cloud. 

There are lots of fun USB sticks for all tastes.

Novelty To-do List Notepads

For those that want to have several to-do list on the go rather than one big one for everything. 

These are fun and can be used in the office and around the house.

Also, a suitable present for well-organised people.

Desktop Glass Planter

Having a bit of greenery to lift the spirits at the office is always good. 

This Desktop Glass Planter is a great option if you don't want all the hassle of taking care of the plants. 

Just stick a few ivy leaves or some of the plants recommended for the planter and voilà!

Fun Coasters

Bring some joy into the office with some of these fun nonslip silicone coasters.

Best Work From Home Gifts for Productivity

Noise Cancelling Headphones

It's not always possible to work in a quiet environment but if you don't you can't concentrate on what you're doing. 

These are for those people that end up working while the kids are watching Peppa Pig on a loop.

Dual Monitors

Having two monitors is not something programmers and geeks do just because it's cool.

If you're working with lots of different apps, a browser, or even having to work on a couple of reports simultaneously, having two monitors can increase your productivity by more than 40% because you have all the information you need there.

Add a dual monitor stand and some cables to set them up.

Evernote Premium Subscription

One way to improve your productivity and keep the paper clutter to a minimum when you're working from home is to keep everything in one place. And Evernote is one of the best apps for that.

Evernote offers a FREE plan that will suit most people, but if you need to use it with multiple devices and want to make the most of its integrations to save time, consider getting their Premium Plan.


Focuster Suscription

Does being in front of a screen all day translate into being more productive? Or are Facebook and Twitter too tempting?

By automatically scheduling priority tasks, helping to avoid distractions and showing how you're spending your work day, Focuster helps you focus on your most important tasks to get more done!


Livescribe Smartpen

It comes with one notebook but if you need more you can get them here.

Most people working from home nowadays work electronically on digital devices. 

But what about when you need to make notes when you're meeting with a client or your boss online? What happens when you can't open your laptop to write your notes? 

The Livescribe Pen records everything you write and say, so you can then save your notes or recordings to your computer. 

Warning: It works with special dotted notebooks only.


It's daft how much paper you end up using in the office to take notes which will, inevitably, end up in the bin.

With the Rocketbook, you can write using any Pilot Frixion pen, upload your notes to the cloud if you want to and then use a damp microfibre cloth, also provided in this kit, to delete them.

Check out the Fusion and Panda Planner options too!

Best Work From Home Ergonomic Gifts

Ergonomic Keyboard

I love ergonomic keyboards, they're not only better for you because they help you avoid repetitive strain injury, but they allow you to type quicker and more accurately than with a normal keyboard. 

The Perixx is a good, affordable option for most users, but if you're looking for a top of the range option, check out this one.

Ergonomic Mouse

An ergonomic mouse is also a must-have to avoid wrist, shoulder, and neck pains and reduce repetitive strain injury.

And vertical mice help by keeping your wrist in a neutral handshake position.

Ergonomic Chair

You can't talk about ergonomic gifts without looking at an ergonomic chair. 

Anybody with a dedicated home office space should consider adding an ergonomic chair to their office setup to avoid back problems. 

There are plenty of affordable ergonomic chairs nowadays, and since you're likely to spend 6-8 hours a day sitting, it's a worthwhile investment.

Ergonomic Wrist Rests

These have to be the cutest wrists rests I've ever seen.

They're made with antislip material so they stick to your desk and the memory foam makes them really comfortable to use.

And they make you smile!

Blue Light Blocking Screen Protector

Using a blue light screen reduces eyestrain and fatigue.

If you spend all day in front of the computer and your eyes are very tired at the end of the day, try one of these screen protectors (which also work as a memo board, btw) or check out some of these anti blue light glasses.

Best Work From Home Gifts for Organisers

Magnetic Notes

These Magnetic Notes are an alternative to Post-It Notes.

They're eco-friendly, reusable, stackable AND wipeable! 

They can be cut to any size too.

They will stick to any magnetic surface but if you need a dedicated board for them here's a blue glass magnetic board and some magnetic pens to go with the notes.

Monitor Stand and Organiser

This bamboo monitor stand has plenty of spaces for phone, tablet, pens.

I'd also recommend some of these desk drawer organisers.

And here's a stand that will suit those using two monitors.

Funny Office Supply Holder

For organiser with a good sense of humour, so they can keep their essentials handy and put away the rest.

Desk Organiser

For people with tiny offices or having to make-do with a table in the corner but still need some space for books, notebooks and other knick-knacks. 

Easy to put together and in different colours.

A Label Maker

Well-organised people will love this little label maker as a present. 

It plugs into a computer and can be used to print labels for boxes, letters, filing, supplies, boxes...

Best Work From Home Gifts for Coffee Lovers

Smart Coffee Warmer

When you're focusing on a task, it's easy to forget about the coffee you have next to you.

Make sure your favourite coffee lover friend has one of these in their office, so they can always have hot coffee.

Coffee Canister

This coffee canister will keep coffee fresh for longer. 

It has a date tracker to keep track of freshness and a Co2 release valve for flavour saving.

Also included in this set: A FREE travel jar + scoop.

Coffee Machine

Slim coffee machine that will fit in the smallest home office.

Includes 40 coffees.

Another Coffee Machine

This is another great coffee machine for the office.

If you're looking for a strong coffee and don't want or can't use a stove pot one, this electric Delonghi ALICIA Italian Espresso machine gives you all the flavour and you can use it anywhere where there's a plug.

The World's Strongest Coffee

The thing about working from home is that you can choose when you work and how long you work for.

But that means you may end up working some stupid hours.

Stay awake with Death Wish's World's Strongest Coffee!

Novelty Mugs

I know, I know, everybody's got lots of mugs, but they're a great Secret Santa or Stocking Filler gift.

Here's a set of Mandalorian inspired mugs.

Best Work From Home Gifts for Fitness Enthusiasts

Fitness Tracker

Teleworking means that you don't even have to get out of the house to get to the office.

For fitness enthusiasts and not-so-fit telecommuters, a Fitbit will provide the motivation to exercise and stay active.

This one by Lintelek is an option for those on a smaller budget.

Under Desk Elliptical

This Under Desk Elliptical can be used from a standing position, but it's also small enough to use under the desk.

With adjustable resistance so you can control the intensity of the workout and stay active, even from the desk.

It's also very quiet when in use.

Embrava Water Bottle

Keeping well hydrated is important no matter where you are, and this bottle's one-handed, flip-top lid gives you quick, easy access to your fresh water without having to stop what you’re doing.

Taotronics Massage Gun

This powerful massage gun will get rid of muscle soreness after a long day at the desk.

It can also be used to relax and release tension and is also great after a strenuous workout.

So great for the office and home gym!

Resistance bands

Most home offices aren't that big, so it's not possible to have a set of dumbbells to exercise. 

But having a couple of these resistance bands in one of your desk drawers can be a handy substitute. They can also be hooked to the top of the door or a support to exercise legs and arms.

Best Work From Home Gifts for Creatives

Pen Tablet

Pen tablets are normally used for photo editing and digital art, but they can also be used to write, edit and show your notes to colleagues when you're having team meetings online.

Chalkboard Sticker For Wall

Chalkboard stickers give you a place to organise projects, to-do lists, or draw mind maps so they're easy to work with, but creative types also love to use them to personalise and decorate them without having something permanent.


Here's a set of Ultra Fine Point Sharpies for your work-at-home creative friends.

I chose these cos I haven't seen them in the shops and they are not your usual Sharpies, but any other type of Sharpies will do too.

And don't forget to add a few notebooks!

Computer Decals

These stickers for laptops are ideal for creative types to personalise their boring looking laptops. 

There are lots of different options.

Bonsai Kit

These little bonsai trees will take years to grow, but they take minimal care and are designed with beginners in mind.

Bonsais are another way to bring a little greenery into even the most minimalist of home offices.

So there you are, my ultimate gift guide for people who work from home.

Getting any of these awesome home office gifts means that you're helping your telecommuter friend save time, stay organised, keep healthy so working at their desk all day is a much more pleasant experience.
