Christmas Gift Guide for Home Workers

Christmas is just around the corner, and with many of us working from home, it’s the perfect time to buy a Christmas gift that is both practical and very-much-appreciated. So forget the last-resort pair of socks for that famously tough-to-buy-for person in your life and get them something that will have a daily impact on their life when they are working (or gaming!) from home.

1. Standing Desk

Now it wouldn’t be an Ergo blog post without us raving about the benefits of standing desks. Wave goodbye to the dining table, kitchen worktop and coffee table, and help your loved one upgrade to a proper desk. If nothing else, it might get them out of the living room!

Standing desks are much more than just a place to work. Switching between a sitting and standing position can optimise focus, keep you active and engaged with your work, reduce posture-related back pain and improve your mood, along with several other proven health benefits. With the click of a button - or the crank of a handle with a manual desk - you can adjust your workspace to the perfect height without having to commit to one position or the other.

Ergo Desks has a wide range of models and colours available for all tastes and budgets, including the Atlas Mini Standing Desk. The Atlas Mini is the perfect choice for those who want an affordable and modestly sized desk option with full adjustable electric function. This mini version of one of our best selling desks allows you to switch between sitting and standing without taking up too much space in your home. Although it might not have space for every piece of office equipment you could want within arm’s reach, the Atlas Mini has plenty of room for a laptop, documents, and of course, that vital cup of coffee. On top of that, you can fully customise the frame colour and worktop material of all our desks to blend seamlessly into any home.


2. Ergonomic Chair

Not all chairs are created equal, and a poor seating position is one of the most common hazards of desk-based working. The right chair will help keep your spine correctly aligned, reducing back pain and improving posture.

At Ergo Desks, we offer a wide range of office chairs that vary in style, size, and price point. However, they all have one thing in common; boosting productivity and spine health by promoting an appropriate seating position.

After all, while adopting a standing position can help, you still need to consider posture during your seated spells.

3. Circadian Rhythm Lamp

A Circadian lamp automatically provides the right colour temperature and brightness of light throughout your working day by adapting to your body's natural circadian rhythm. This can help to regulate sleep-wake cycles, enhance mood, and improve productivity levels and cognitive function.

Physical and mental benefits aside, a circadian rhythm lamp is also a sleek and stylish addition to your loved one's desk!

4. Desk Mat

A tidy and organised desk is a productive desk, but we are all guilty of letting things get out of hand. How often, especially during particularly busy days, do you find yourself struggling to find the pen you just put down, or running out of space to move your mouse around?

The solution? A desk mat provides a stylish and practical way to keep your desk organised. Our desk mats provide a stationery rest to keep pens and so on organised, a magnetic cable holder to keep cables out of your workspace, and a convenient document hideaway to keep notes and documents close-by but out of sight.

5. Footrest

When you sit at a desk, maintaining a good posture is essential for your health. However, the more time you spend at your desk, the easier it is to fall into the trap of poor posture.

A desk footrest is a supportive device placed under a desk to provide a comfortable surface to allow the user to rest their feet, while maintaining proper ergonomic posture.

This is the kind of thing that people don't invest in for themselves, but make a brilliant and thoughtful gift! Learn more about the benefits of using a footrest here.

6. Headphones

Virtual meetings are something we have all had to get used to, and they have quickly become the norm. However, without the right equipment they can still present a few communication issues that can be overcome quickly and easily.

Microphones and speakers that are built in to computers and other technology are rarely high-performing. This can make calls through Zoom, Teams, Skype, or any other platform a bit of an issue – especially in meetings where multiple people may be speaking at the same time.

It also means that people can shout rather than speaking in their normal voice in order to compensate for the difficulties they might be having in hearing others, assuming that they can’t be heard either, making for a noisy and disruptive household.

A dedicated pair of headphones with a built-in microphone can make a world of difference, especially important in households where two people are working in close proximity!
