Working from home has become a central part of our lives — with most of us slowly coming to terms with this new normal. And since we're getting close to gifting season, you might want to help sweeten up the workspaces for your mom who's got a budding business passion project, or your best friend who's a total boss. To make their home office setups more functional and aesthetically pleasing, we've got a guide to WFH presents that they'll appreciate as a thoughtful investment in helping them get down to business.

The curated gift guide ahead has everything bedroom office dwellers, standing desk operators, and loveseat typers can utilize for a more seamless work from home scenario. We hunted down the internet's cutest, chicest, and most functional tools, decorative objects, and smart storage solutions for you to gift those you know working from home indefinitely — which is basically, like, everyone.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
