32 Gift Ideas For People Who Work From Home:
If they don’t already have a planner for 2021 it can be the most helpful present for a work from home friend or family member for you to get them a planner.
2: Noise cancelling headphones
This is an extra important gift if their kids are also doing virtual learning! Plus this is a gift they can use in other circumstances too if they don’t work from home forever.
3: Fitness watch
It can be difficult to get enough steps in when you are sitting at your home office desk all day. So getting a fitness watch of some sort can really help make sure they get in their steps! If you are staying budget friendly you can get the affordable fitbit option below:
4: Desk chair cushion
Chances are they already have a desk chair but it might not be (probably isn’t) overly comfortable so gifting them a desk chair cushion could totally transform their home office chair.
5: Desk lamp
A desk lamp is a great way to brighten up and add a fun touch to a home office space!
6: Paper organizer
This is especially a helpful gift if they didn’t work from home before and may not have a great organization system in place for their work papers. You can try to match one to their current office decor/style to really make it perfect for them.
This is something I didn’t realize I would need until I started working from home but we didn’t have enough coasters for all of the new places we are drinking coffee in our home.
If your friend or family member normally got their coffee on the way to work or at work then they may not have a great way to make coffee at home. A Keurig is an awesome gift for anyone new to working at home!
9: Wireless phone charger
Wireless chargers are super nice for working from home because you can easily take it on and off the charger when you need to respond to calls and messages.
10: Gentle scented candles
I love lighting a candle at the beginning of my work day at home! Makes my office feel warmer and cozier. However, most candles have too much scent for my office space so a great gift would be a gentle scented candle!
11: Water bottle
A new water bottle is always a great, simple gift but if your loved one is working remote it is really a great gift so they can stay hydrated.
12: A succulent
Succulents are super easy to keep alive (if I can keep them alive, anyone can!) and can really brighten and liven up a work space. So gifting a succulent can be such a great present for anyone working from home.
13: Cable organizer
No one likes cables cluttering up their desk but if they rapidly had to put together a home office then they may not have been able to figure out a cable/cord organization system yet. This is a cheap and super helpful gift for anyone who work remote.
14: Keyboard cover
A fun keyboard cover is a great way to add color and some fun to a boring work computer without damaging it!
15: Pen/pencil holder
This is a simple gift for any loved ones who have a desk but it is such a great way to add some style to your work space.
16: Fun to do list
A fun to do list is a present that everyone will love and can bring a smile to your loved ones face when they write their daily tasks on it!
17: Desk humidifier
I love this! If your friend or family member has a lot of air movement in their office or likes to have their window open a tiny desk humidifier can work wonders for them.
18: Foot rest
I am so guilty of sitting incorrectly on my home office chair and it’s resulting in bad posture and back pain. And I’m sure I’m not alone in this! So if your loved one is also guilty of bad posture on a desk chair try getting them a small desk foot rest.
19: Cute phone speakers
If your friend or family likes to listen to music or podcasts while they are working then a cute small phone speaker like this would make an awesome gift for someone working at home!
20: Personalized mouse pad
I was given one of these last year and use it every day. Such a fun little personalization to your home office.
21: Unique highlighters
There are a lot of jobs where you go through highlighters like crazy and if your loved one has a job like that getting them some unique and fun highlighters can brighten up their work day. Guys, the pun was intended!
22: Sticky note set
This is a great stocking stuffer option! If the person you are buying this gift for goes through a lot of sticky notes a set of sticky notes that are cool and unique can be a great present for them.
23: Small desk fan
For those of us who are super picky about the temperature when we’re working this is such a great present idea. Affordable and will really improve their time working at their home office! Another great work from home gift idea.
24: Home command center
This is a great gift if your loved one who is working from home also has children doing remote school! Staying on top of everything and organized is so important this year.
25: Good quality coffee
For the working from home coffee lover this is the perfect gift! It’s fun to be able to make their own good quality coffee while you’re working compared to office coffee but it can get pricey! So gifting them some good coffee beans is a great idea.
26: Standing desk
A mobile standing desk isn’t as expensive as you may think (less than $50!) and can really help out someone who isn’t used to sitting at a desk so much!
27: Desk accessory kit
A lot of people who ended up suddenly working from home quickly realized they don’t have some basic office supplies! So a little desk accessory kit like this can really come in handy.
28: Fun eyeglasses holder
This is a great gift idea for anyone who uses reading glasses! They can put them in this plush eyeglass holder when they don’t need them so they don’t get lost.
29: Clip on mug holder
Not enough room on the make shift desk? Then this is a great gift idea! It clips on to the side of their desk or table to make room for a mug.
30: Motivational desk calendar
This is another great option for a stocking stuffer idea for anyone who works from home. It is a great idea for anyone who really likes quotes and motivating decor!
31: Large wall calendar
This is a functional and fun gift idea! There are so many options that are great for every style and personality but here is the one I want to get for 2021.
32: Laptop stand
The final gift idea for working from home friends and family is a laptop stand! This is a great gift idea especially if they aren’t working on a correct height desk. It will help with posture and visibility.
Best of luck finding the best gift ideas for people who work from home! It can be a challenge but they will be so thankful for your effort! Work from home gift ideas are going to be all over this year so have fun shopping for them.
