As we approach the two-year mark of the pandemic, more companies are making the transition back to the office. Now, returning to work means you actually have to think about what you’re packing in your bag in the morning. Working from home allowed all of us to work from the comfort of our home, which means we had everything we could possibly need around us at all times.
In an effort to make your return to office easier on you, our team rounded up some essential items to make your transition a bit smoother. We separated our essentials into three categories: the electronics, the workstation, and the extras.
Simplify your office set-up by purchasing a charging station. A charging station puts all your devices in one, easy access place for charging.
The Belkin BoostCharge is our pick for all our Apple users out there. This charger pad won’t take up too much space at your desk and is compatible with all Apple products. You can charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and Airpods using this charger pad. No plugging in necessary — just place your device on the charger pad and you’re good to go.
This charger is compatible for both iPhones and Androids, but not smartwatches. Regardless, it’s sleek, has multiple charging positions, and comes with a detachable magnetic kickstand.
A good pair of noise cancelling headphones will make your return to the office much smoother, especially if you’re returning to an open concept space. These Bose Quiet Comfort over-the-ear headphones have a 24 hour battery life, quiet and aware modes, and high fidelity audio.
We understand you spent many hours making sure your WFH set-up was perfect. Plus, you always had all of your personal items within a short reach. To make your return to the office easier, get yourself a good desk organizer.
This desk organizer is sleek and spacious with display shelves for your books, pictures, files, pens, and more.
You know that standing desk you bought at the start of the pandemic for your WFH station? Bring it over to your office! Standing desks are great to reduce back pain and improve posture. Some studies also show that working at a standing desk can improve energy levels.
Our members love the Vari Electric Standing Desk because of its many features such as its stability and 4 programmable memory settings. Our members also love the 48” width of the desk, allowing for two monitors to be on the desk.
A laptop stand is a great choice for remote workers or freelancers who are joining a coworking space. This ergonomic laptop stand is sturdy, portable, and can elevate your laptop to optimal eye level. Say goodbye to a hunched back!
A good chair is just as important as a good desk. This ergonomic chair comes with a breathable mesh back, passive lumbar support, and a padded and contoured 6” mesh seat cushion.
It’s easy to forget to hydrate, especially when you’re working in a new environment without your kitchen sink nearby. Fill up your water bottle when you get to work and save yourself from making a few extra trips to the communal kitchen. We understand why these 1 gallon motivational bottles have become so popular in the last year — hydration is important!
Whether you have a 5 minute commute or a 50 minute commute, a good traveler mug is essential for your mornings. The Kinto Traveler Tumbler is a great option to keep your coffee or tea warm. This tumbler is vacuum insulated, meaning it will keep your beverage hot or cold for a long period of time. If you don’t have much of a commute, this tumbler is an eco-friendly choice for your office’s coffee machine or cafe.
