As someone who struggles with procrastination and time management, I often use the Pomodoro method to keep on track with my work.

The cube rotation timer office gadget is a TikTok product that helps make it obvious when you’re trying to focus on a task, as people can see how long you’re trying to focus for, and also how much time is left for that period.

In addition to grabbing a motorised standing desk, you should also pick up a walking pad if you have the spare cash. When you work in an office job or spend hours at your desk each day, it’s important to ensure you keep moving. Sitting for long periods of time can have a negative effect on your health, so one cheeky way to fit more steps into your day is with a walking pad.

This one will let you walk up to 6km/hr, features a built-in Bluetooth speaker and can easily be tucked under your desk or bed when not in use. Walking pads are also one of the most popular Amazon finds since flexible working arrangements became a thing.

Reusable Self-Stick Whiteboard Stickers

The amount of times we’ve used sticky notes, only for them to shrivel up and unstick a moment later is pretty irksome, so we reckon these reusable, washable post-its are an essential Amazon find if you want something that’s environmentally sustainable and functional.

Keep in mind that they are magnetic, which means you’ll need a whiteboard or magnetic surface to stick ’em up.

Courant Catch 3 Wireless Charging Station


A charging port and a spot to neatly pop all of your everyday goodies like lip balms, office supplies, hand creams and your keys. This office gadget is what we call a win-win.

Mini Sticker Label Printer

While our team doesn’t really work with many hard-copy documents, we do remember when we were students and had multiple piles of notes and books at any given time. We often caught ourselves wishing we had these label makers to organise whichever desk binder had which notes in it, and vice versa.

So, if you’re a student, or you work with lots of receipts or bank statements in your industry, a label maker can be a great way of getting your ducks in a row. The best part? You can choose from a bunch of different styles and colours, or even design your own QR codes or barcodes.

Reusable Envelope Sealers

Who doesn’t despise licking envelopes before posting a letter? That’s why we all audibly gasped after we spotted this Amazon find. To use it, you fill the clear tube up with water, which lubricates the brush end of this stick so you can seal down your envelopes with ease. How’s that for modern technology?
