Here at Camille Styles, we’re all about finding ways to make life a little easier. Whether it’s for parents or everyday products for life, we always shop with smoother schedules. Intelligent, intentionally designed items help us get used to routines and provide cues that keep us on track and focused. And of course, the best things to do when working from home will make our workdays more efficient (and dare I say it… joyful!).
We’ve written about the importance of developing a work-from-home routine (and exactly how to do it here), but we’d miss the many hardworking tools and gadgets that help us along the way , not giving a little love. If you’re one of the 58 percent of Americans who can work from home at least once a week, then trust me: the following 13 work-from-home essentials are going to be a godsend.

Because here’s the truth: Nowadays, much of life takes place at home. While this was the case in previous generations, our social, professional and family life has often taken place within our own four walls since the pandemic. So the challenge of separating parenting from our careers can feel like an all-time high. Or, if you’re bombarded with back-to-back meetings all day, the thought of a workout is pipe dream at best.
Sound familiar? Same – that’s why I researched the best things to do when working from home and shared my list of essentials here. From hand weights that double as the perfect hiking accessory, to the cutest vessels for all your favorite fall beverages, consider this your one stop shop for everything to keep your days flowing with ease.

Weighted bangle set by Bala
When you want to improve every workout with more resistance, you can easily strap these around your ankles or wrists while you’re out walking or taking a Pilates class.
Paper Wonder Daily Planner
We like this one because it’s undated so you can start anytime. As much as we tend to stick to our Google Calendar or Evernote for to-do lists and appointments, writing them down also helps.
Beast Health™ Blender
Small, handy and chic. All things that make this a must-have in the morning when we’re blending a smoothie or a matcha latte.
We admit, having something aesthetically pleasing to drink makes the WFH experience all the more enjoyable. Pro tip: Sign up for Camille’s new line of homewares, Casa Zuma, coming soon!
Wide Mouth Porter Water Bottle
In a never-ending quest to drink more water, we are clearly motivated by products that catch our attention. We like that this one is made of glass, which means it’s sustainable, easy to wash, and has an opening wide enough for easy cleaning.
Pure Enrichment PureZone Mini Portable Air Purifier
Depending on the size of your space, we like the portability of this air purifier, which is perfect for a smaller apartment or a condo desk. However, if you’re looking for something bigger, we’re big fans of Molekule.
Soleil glass scented candle
In the WFH setups of our editorial team, hardly a moment goes by without a candle burning. It makes our areas smell nice and creates a cozy atmosphere. Also, this is usually something that wasn’t allowed in office environments – remember those days? (Psst… if you want to pick all of our favorite fall candles, consult our list.)
Courant Catch 3: Essentials
Simple, elegant, and oh-so-snazzy, this all-rounder is a great way to keep your phone and essentials charged. Bonus: you can keep all your non-negotiable stuff in one place, minus the chord abyss.
mooas Cube Timer
Many of you have probably heard of the Pomodoro Timer (and if you haven’t, don’t worry, it was new to us too). Essentially, it’s a tool created to help you save time and stay on track with daily tasks. If you’re someone who prefers a physical timer, this one is great. And if you prefer an app instead, this is our top pick.
Acrylic dry erase memo tablet
An acrylic notepad that makes it easy to jot down your morning to-dos or jot down brainstorming thoughts during a meeting. We like that this is as functional as it is beautiful on our desks.
Oripura laptop stand
Depending on your current WFH setup, this laptop stand has revolutionized convenience. If you know Herman Miller, you know their commitment to ergonomic design.
SideTrak Slide Portable Monitor
Speaking of laptops and monitors, if you need a second screen for your work, you can easily take it with you when you travel or between the office and home.
Apple AirPods Pro
We love that these are easy to switch between our computers and phones while also offering noise-cancelling features in case we’re outside or in a noisy workspace.
