Chances are, a few people you are close to will be working remotely in the near future. Make their experience better with any of these gifts that are perfect for anyone who works from home.
Given the current state of COVID-1
Being at your home all day can not only distract you, but it can also lead to a sedentary lifestyle. That’s why gifts that make someone more comfortable while working from home while boosting productivity and motivation are ideal. Below are some great options.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless Bluetooth headphones
Not everyone has the luxury of working in a quiet, empty house. Most people are there with their children, their partners and / or other family members. This means things can get pretty noisy, so a really nice set of noise canceling headphones, like the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, are a very special gift.
They offer three levels of noise canceling, so you can really grab hold of and focus on your work without any distractions. You can also use the Bose app to control them, and they work with Alexa to make life even easier.
L’or de Seraphine Aromatherapy Energize Set
A really beautiful candle set makes a nice gift for everyone as it is probably something they would never buy for themselves. Candles are also nice to have on hand if you spend a lot of time around the house. They smell so good while you are at work.
This L’or de Seraphine Aromatherapy Energize Set is particularly good because it contains scents that are meant to make you more energetic and alert. The Mansour Marrakech candle features notes of lemon, bergamot and ginger citrus to stimulate the senses, while the Maia has notes of grapefruit, lily of the valley and coriander to lift your mood.
As a bonus, they come in beautiful packaging and the tins are so beautiful that your recipient will definitely want to reuse them. He or she can easily clean them after they burn through the candles and use them for storage.
Garmin Venu SQ watch
If you work from home, you can easily roll out of bed and go straight to the couch for the rest of the day. But a fitness watch, like the Garmin Venu SQ, can motivate you to get a little more active and take those steps.
This watch is not only sleek, but also has many functions. It monitors everything including your energy level, breathing, hydration, stress, sleep, menstrual cycles, estimated heart rate, steps and more.
You can even download songs to it and connect via wireless headphones for phone-less listening. And if you want to work out at home, there are more than 20 preloaded sports apps to help.
Smart Fox Planner
If you’re not sure what to get for someone, a planner is usually a pretty safe choice. This one from Clever Fox will help your friend stay up to date no matter how much it stacks up. It also looks really nice and even comes with a gift box to keep it safe.
This premium planner has a lot of space and a simple layout for writing daily tasks and appointments. There are also monthly review pages to help you stay on top of your goals. And since it is undated, it can be used any time of the year. It also has room for goals you want to achieve to keep you inspired.
The beautiful cover, the durable paper, the pen holder and the stickers to decorate make this an ideal gift.
Universal Yums subscription
It’s nice to have some really good snacks when you work from home, and a snack subscription box is a truly unique way to do this. It is truly a gift that you will keep giving as your girlfriend doesn’t get just one box, she gets a few every few weeks
Universal Yums is a fun choice. Each month is dedicated to a different country, so your recipient will get snacks they’ve never heard of, snacks they’ve always wanted to try, or snacks they thought they’d never try. Each box contains a booklet explaining all the items, and they are a lot of fun to receive and then devour.
What’s great about working from home is that you don’t have to wear shoes – socks or slippers will do just fine. That’s why it’s nice to have a good pair of slippers on hand, especially as we enter the colder months. This pair of memory foam from Ubfen works well for both men and women.
Made from a breathable knit upper, they keep feet comfortable without overheating. The soft, plush lining is also soothing and nice and warm. The non-slip rubber sole also makes them easy to wear indoors and out, and the simple design goes with anything.
Cubii Under Desk Elliptical
If you know someone who has tried to stay more active while working from home, consider getting them the Cubii Under Desk Elliptical. This luxury gift is such a cool idea! This allows you to exercise a little while sitting on your couch or at your desk.
With this compact cross trainer you burn up to 125 calories per hour. It’s super quiet and smooth, and especially great for those looking for something low-impact. You can use it with the Cubii app, which syncs with your phone, Fitbit or Apple Health Kit. Then you can track your distance traveled, calories burned and more!
Ember smart mug with temperature control
If you know someone who drinks coffee or tea all day, consider grabbing this Ember Smart Mug with temperature control. It keeps drinks warm for a long time. This means that your girlfriend can forget about that cup of coffee for a while, and it will still taste good when she remembers to drink it.
This smart mug is controlled via a smartphone app, where your friend can set the temperature, adjust presets, receive notifications and more. The mug also goes into sleep mode when empty and wakes up when it detects movement or liquid. It also has a scratch resistant ceramic coating that can be safely hand washed.
Atlas Coffee Cub
If the person you’re buying for makes their own coffee every day, the Atlas Coffee Club is a really nice subscription gift idea. The service sends one or two bags of (your choice) of compound coffee from some of the best growing regions in the world.
Each bag also includes brewing recommendations and a postcard of each country. The real focus is on the coffee, which is all interesting and delicious. You can choose a three-, six- or twelve-month subscription as a gift that you keep on giving.
Breville Vertuo Coffee and espresso machine
Maybe the person you’re buying for prefers lattes and cappuccinos over plain old coffee. If they don’t already have a Nespresso machine, they definitely need one, and the Breville Vertuo is an excellent option.
It couldn’t be easier either – think of it as a Keurig espresso machine (although it also makes regular coffee). Coffee like this often gets a bad name, but Nespresso is delicious and the convenience is well worth it. This machine has ended our daily Starbucks journeys.
You can also get the machine with the Aeroccino if your friend prefers perfectly frothy milk.
Gaiam Classic Balance Ball Chair
The Gaiam Classic Balance Ball Chair is a unique gift that is not overly expensive either. Created by health and fitness experts, it offers a flexible seat that also promotes proper back alignment to relieve the aches and pains that often occur when you sit down all day.
Since you have to balance in this chair, you also have to move. This engages your mind and body, which can increase productivity and focus. It’s not uncomfortable or very big, and it’s better than just sitting on an exercise ball because it also has a back support.
