Holiday lights are twinkling, sleigh bells tinkling, and Christmas cheer abounds—but no one knows what to get you. Maybe your home business took off and now you buy everything you want, leaving your wish list a little sparse; maybe you completely altered course, started out on a new path, and now you need so much your loved ones are at a loss. Maybe you fall smack in the middle and just want some nifty new gadgets to make your life easier. Whatever the case, if you've got a workspace that needs a little sprucing, consider asking your loved ones for one of the following items to deck out your home office.
1. A Desk Set
Nothing says "business" like business accessories, and a desk set is a great way to cover all your bases in a stylish, matching aesthetic. Most of these sets include things like tape dispenser, stapler, envelope opener, and hole punch—the bare necessities—but more comprehensive sets can be found. They come in a range of materials and styles, making it easy to match an overall design scheme, and numerous price points mean your gifter won't have to break the bank.
2. Storage Solutions
This sounds boring, because for most of us it is; but that same reasoning is probably why you haven't gotten around to sorting those important papers yet. Fun and funky magazine butlers might gear you up to get cleaning, while modern and sleek file sorters may instill a desire to keep everything looking fantastic. An inspiring environment starts with the bones, and if your storage is fabulous, you'll be more driven to maintain an air of sophisticated organization.
3. A Portable Charging Dock
The best part of having your own space is just that—it's yours. Whether that means working in your pajamas or making a game of rearranging your desk every day, the beauty is in the freedom. That's why you don't want to be limited to wherever a plug is close enough for your charging cable; even worse if you have multiple devices all jockeying for plug real estate. So this Christmas, ask for a portable dock and let the possibilities flow. Chargers from TYLT are even shaped to facilitate wrapping the charging cords around itself to save space. Alternatively, you could find a charger that is shaped like something interesting, making it a practical decoration.
4. Noise-Cancelling Headphones
You might not have a noise problem in your home office, but if you do, you know the absurd level of distraction just one barking dog can cause. If you find your work flow thrown out of whack by rambunctious kids or your one neighbor's 24/7 blaring of Reggaetón radio stations, pop some headphones on your list. The technology behind newer models is amazing, and they're much less bulky these days; you won't be disappointed.
If you've been in the office environment long, you know one of the most profound effects such work has is on your posture. Long days spent in a computer chair aren't exactly conducive to core muscle strength, unless you're using an exercise ball or stool for a desk chair or have opted for a standing desk. If those solutions don't appeal to you, UpRight should make your wishlist: it's a piece of wearable tech that trains you to change your posture. It adheres to the small of your back and vibrates when you slouch, alerting you to readjust. For the slouchers of the world, it's a game changer.
There you have it! If you were struggling with gift ideas before, hopefully something on this list stood out as a must-have for yourself or a must-get for a loved one. You can't go wrong investing in your own business; at the forefront of that is investing in yourself. So ask for some home office supplies, and watch your productivity skyrocket in the new year.
I hope you enjoyed this article on some great suggestions for office Christmas gifts!
