10 Cute Office Supplies to Seriously Upgrade Your Work from Home Situation
Part of a successful work from home experience is setting up a workspace that will aid in your productivity—and make you feel happy when you’re in it. Whether you’re working from a full-fledged home office or sharing a dining room table with your spouse, roommate or sister, consider sprucing up your WFH space with one of these ten accessories
1. Moglea Hand Painted Notebook
These hand-painted notebooks are one-of-a-kind (meaning yours might not look exactly like this one) and bound in Moglea's studio, located on a farm in Audubon, Iowa. Fill up its 65 pages with to-dos, grocery lists or doodles. (Psst…a study published in The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology found that participants were more likely to remember to do annoying tasks when they drew a picture of them.)
2. Rifle Paper Co. Writing Pen
This comfortably weighted rollerball pen comes in five gorgeous prints and makes writing down all the stuff you have to do in a day a bit more palatable.
3. Clare V. for Anthropologie Striped Glass Carafe
There’s never been a better time to work on hitting your daily hydration goal. This carafe (which is made from recycled, hand-blown glass) designed by Clare V. in collaboration with Anthropologie is the most stylish way to do so.
4. Bloomscape Spider Plant
A study led by Cardiff University monitored two large offices over a period of months and found that a plant-rich workspace could increase productivity by 15 percent. This cute little drought tolerant plant survives on little more than sunshine and the occasional watering. It’s also pet-safe.
5. Beats Solo³ Wireless Headphones
Yes, these are a splurge, but there’s lots to love about them, from the super-sleek design and ability to take calls, control your music and activate Siri with the multifunction on-ear controls to the noise-cancelling feature which renders all child screaming and dog barking moot.
6. Marimekko Oiva Unikko Mug
Whether it’s filled with the strongest coffee you can get your hands on or a matcha latte, this pretty mug is like a little piece of art on your desk. (It’s also dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe.)
7. Rifle Paper Co. 17-Month Planner
OK, yes, this planner technically starts in a few months (specifically, in August) but it’s never too early to get organized. Inside you'll find pages with monthly and weekly views, inspirational quotes, a pocket folder with a ruler and sticker sheets for personalization.
8. Slip Pure Silk Scrunchies (Pack of 5)
For any gals who can’t work with hair in their faces, grab a pack of these ultra-luxe scrunchies. While traditional hair ties can tug on and damage hair, these are made with the pure silk, which prevents breakage and reduces the annoying ridges caused by regular scrunchies.
9. Anthropologie Kadin Throw Blanket
Think of this as a way nicer version of the office blanket you cling to all year when management insists on dropping temps to subarctic levels.
10. Vornado Mini Classic Fan
On the flip side, if your WFH office gets a little warm, plug in this vintage-y fan and pretend you’re Beyoncé performing at Coachella. Then, get back to work.
