Home Office Gifts For Sprucing Up a Basic Workspace this Holiday Season

Home Office Gifts For Sprucing Up a Basic Workspace this Holiday Season

Your holiday WFH giftee already has a home office desk setup, so now what? Pre-order the Pilot Desk (or the adjustable standing desk version) as the perfect gift to bring an outdated workspace into the 21st century, or think outside the box. We’ve got the perfect home office gifts to send this holiday season that will help them build out the rest of their work-from-home space.

Build a dynamic workspace

People who work from home due to the pandemic know the monotony of going to work in the same place you sleep. If you're one of the many remote workers taking Zoom calls instead of a daily commute, beat brainblock by helping create a dedicated workspace, even if you don’t have room for a proper office. When the ergonomic office chair gets boring, help out your hardworking family member with a Nomad Club Chair. Not only is it a comfy place to take a conference call, it can also help get the creative juices flowing with a change of pace. Throw in a lap desk for working from the chair and add a Carta Side Table as a place to keep spare notepads and morning coffee. Now you've helped your loved one set up a comfortable remote working space!

Help them make their office their own

One of the best parts of remote work is that you can ditch the boring office space feel of a cubicle. Add personality so they actually want to BE in their office. Personalized desk accessories make unique gifts; try ordering a custom mouse pad or an essential oil diffuser to fill with their favorite scents. To brighten up the room, it doesn't have to be wall art. They won't be afraid to switch on their webcam for Zoom meetings with luxe holidays gifts like the Prairie Modern Rug to brighten the space. Does your loved one like displaying gadgets, books, or collectibles? An Index Wall Shelf is a great gift for storing and showing off their favorites.

Small footprint desk lamp

Even if their desk doesn’t have much real estate, make the most of it with a lamp that lights up their work to avoid eyestrain. The Crane LED Desk Lamp is the perfect holiday gift for the hard worker who's in the office at all hours. It's small and adjustable, to give them the perfect angle on their work. The bright light will illuminate everything from the sticky note to-do list on their computer monitors to notes on the last video call. Looking for a tech gift for the gadget enthusiast? Take up just a little more space with the Collette Adesso Charge LED Desk Lamp for a high-tech surprise. The base does double duty as a wireless charger for their phone! No more phone cables as stocking stuffers here.

Lighting the rest of their home office

Keep things bright all around with lighting that doesn’t have to dominate the room. Lamps and lighting are some of the best gifts for building an at-home office that doesn't feel like a cave. Brighten their workday with an Emmett Floor Lamp that keeps things classy with a mid-century look. It leaves plenty of space for the rest of their working area. If you want an even more subtle touch of lighting, the Button Plug-In Sconce is perfect for a low-key lighting solution. If they're suffering from eye strain problems from blue light, add some soft light lightbulbs to keep their lighting gentle.

Gift guide to shelf storage and desk organizers

An uncluttered workspace helps you feel more relaxed and be more productive. Keep up on work too: thrown in some work organizers to keep that desk uncluttered! Index Wall Shelves add storage to any space instantly, and they can be used for everything from books and official documents to their favorite gadgets. Cable organizers are perfect for clearing a nest of wires off the desk (which is why we built cable management straight into our new Pilot Desks), leaving plenty of space for everything from their laptop to a reusable water bottle. Add in some desk organizers or accessories from a cool brand like Hightide for office supplies, and they'll have everything they need to keep their workspace neat.

Gift ideas that take advantage of windows

Natural light can help keep a person's mood up throughout the day, especially in winter. Gift them a mirror to help reflect sunlight throughout the whole space and make their home office seem just a little bit bigger. Mirrors are also a low-profile way to increase lighting without taking up space, making them perfect for a small office. If your loved one likes a bit of decoration, a suncatcher makes a unique gift and the perfect stocking stuffer for brightening up their space.

Take a small home office desk to the next level by enhancing the rest of the room with ideal office furniture touches. You can be the favorite gifter of the season, with plenty of interesting ideas for home office gifts that make working from home a little bit more pleasant. And if you see something that will enhance your own home office space, don't forget to do a little self-gifting for the holidays!
