Keyboard, mouse, and headphones for the perfect Work From Home setup

Working from home has become a common reality for many people in the past few years, and it comes with its own benefits and challenges. Whether you are a seasoned remote worker or a newbie who is still adjusting, having the right accessories can make your home office much more comfortable, productive, and enjoyable.  

In this article, we will introduce you to some of the best work from home accessories we love, including must-have tech gadgets. 

Please note: Compatibility will vary with device and other factors. Check compatibility with your specific device or reach out to us if you want our recommendations. 

Docking station 

A docking station is a device that connects your laptop to multiple devices, such as monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, printers, etc. A docking station can also charge your laptop and other devices, so you don’t have to worry about running out of battery. It’s beneficial because it can make your setup seamless with fewer (visible) cords.  

We recommend spending more on this item, as they can either stop working after a while or not work optimally. Consider at least $200 in your budget. Some laptops may not function with all features offered by docking stations, and we recommend researching  docking stations specifically made by your laptop manufacturer for your model line of computer to guarantee the best compatibility. Contact us if you have questions. 

Headsets and Headphones

A headset or a pair of headphones is an essential accessory for your work from home office, especially if you need to communicate with your colleagues or clients online. A good headset or headphone can deliver clear sound quality, block out background noise, and still provide comfort after long hours of use.  

If you choose to get a headset, an attached microphone is a must-have to make your voice more audible and reduce feedback. If you’re often in meetings or speak to clients in your day-to-day, a good headset will have a huge impact.  

If you listen to music during your workday, be sure to look for a headset that is known for its high-quality music audio, as well. There are headsets that provide good audio for meetings and subpar music audio. 

Portable Monitor

A portable monitor is a device that provides an extra screen for your laptop, tablet, or phone. It can help you multitask, expand your workspace, and improve your efficiency. A portable monitor is usually lightweight, slim, and easy to carry around. If you travel during the year or enjoy working in a cafe, this will bring your home office out of the office.  

USB Hub 

A multi-port hub is a device that adds more ports to your laptop or tablet, such as USB, HDMI, Ethernet, SD card, audio, etc. It differs from a docking station because while a docking station is plugged in and can power your laptop, a multi-port hub often uses power from your laptop to power the connections. A multi-port hub is especially useful if your laptop or tablet has limited ports or only supports USB-C.  

Sit-Stand Desks 

A sit-stand desk can improve your health, comfort, and productivity. It can reduce the health risks of sitting too long. It can also improve your posture and relieve muscle tension. Sit-stand desks can have manual or electric controls, and some models can also tilt or move horizontally. 

A sit-stand desk is ideal for working from home, as it can make your workspace more ergonomic and flexible. It can adapt to your needs and preferences, giving you more control and freedom over your work environment. 

Ergonomic Anything

If you experience back pain, wrist pain, or you’re conscious of how your body may be affected by an office setting, consider looking into ergonomic accessories for your workspace. Similar to a good mattress, an ergonomic office chair would be an investment that pays off in the long term: if you are working 40 hours a week, that is close to half of your waking hours during the work week spent on it. You deserve it! 

E Ink Tablet 

An E Ink tablet is a device that uses electronic paper technology to display text and images. Unlike a conventional tablet or smartphone, an E Ink tablet does not emit light, which means it is easier on the eyes and consumes less power.  

This item may not be for everyone, but if you are a handwritten notetaker, this will be a game changer. You can also sync your E Ink tablet with your laptop or phone and use it as a second screen or a monitor. E Ink Tablets ultimately have limited functionality and are not a regular tablet replacement.  


These are some of our favorite work from home accessories that you can use to enhance your remote work experience. Whether you need more tech gadgets, more comfort items, or more fun items, there is something for everyone on this list. Investing in these can make your home office more functional, comfortable, and enjoyable. You can also improve your productivity, creativity, and well-being while working from home. We hope you find these accessories useful and enjoy working from home!
