This is our favorite standing desk at the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. The bamboo top is eco-friendly and looks great, and you get four engine height presets. It moves smoothly up and down with a slight wiggle. Offers a full suite of add-ons for desk customization upon purchase.

It takes a little bit of work to assemble, but this desk has everything you need for a motorized standing desk at a very affordable price. It has one drive that can hold a desktop from 28 to 48 inches with three height presets, and the surface is made of high quality particleboard. This deal is only available to Amazon Prime members.

This is a VESA-compatible mount that is rated up to 20 pounds and comes with a five-year warranty. The build quality is great, and we love the built-in cable management. It’s made by the same company that makes our favorite standing desks.

Click the coupon button to get an extra 10 percent off. If you like to work from the couch or bed, this desk does the job. The stand is only on one side, so it won’t be difficult to place it near a sofa or bed, and the height is adjustable. It’s very stable to work on, and you can just toss it away when you’re done.

This is a very comfortable chair for the price. It’s all mesh, which allows for better airflow and is great if you tend to get hot. You also get a headrest, and the chair is fully adjustable. It comes with two sets of wheels – casters and spinners – so you can make it work on different types of floors.

We love the height-adjustable footrest for people who spend hours at a time at their desks. The plush cover comes in velvet or mesh and is machine washable.

Former WIRED writer Arielle Pardes was a fan of her under-desk treadmill, which she used to log miles a day while doing her regular work. Fellow Gear team member Medea Giordano also loved the under-desk treadmills, which can help keep your body active (and your mind sharp) while you work.

Desk mats are a great way to keep things looking stylish in your space, and they double as a giant mouse pad. This microfiber rug isn’t super luxurious, but at this discount it doesn’t have to be.

This PU leather rug is gorgeous, especially in the pink color. You can flip it over for a second color. It is easy to clean and smooth when you hover your mouse over it.

WIRED Senior Review Editor Julian Chokkattu tested it out with both Android and iPhone, and this lamp with a wireless charger base meets his needs. It has a USB-A port on the back for connected charging, and color temperature settings can set the mood in a room. It has held up well after nearly a year of testing.

It can be annoying to rely on power sockets on the floor. This tape extender comes with six large ports, a USB-C port, and a USB-A port, making it great for an office that needs a lot of things connected at once.

Attach this 13-inch portable monitor with magnets to the back of your laptop and slide it out whenever you need an extra screen. It doesn’t take up any extra desk space and is great for airplane tables (although it might not be as great for your neighbor’s), and you only need to connect to your laptop via the included USB-C cable. It is a smart system that works well and is reliable.

This is a surprisingly compact portable monitor for its 15-inch size, and we really like the built-in kickstand for the overall stability. There are a variety of connectivity options for Mac, PC, smartphone, and gaming systems, as well as built-in stereo speakers (though you probably don’t want to count on them).

Do you need to connect a lot of equipment to your computer? This device is especially great if you’re using an older laptop or PC without a USB-C port. Connect it via USB-A and you’ll now have access to six additional USB-A ports, two HDMI ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a headphone jack. If you’ve upgraded to a device with USB-C, you can use the adapter included on the cable.

This is a nice wired gaming headset for beginners. It works well for Zoom meetings, and you can use it to break up your friends online after hours. It also comes in a wireless version.

This four-port hub features two USB-A sockets, a 100W USB-C port that can power a MacBook Pro, and 4K HDMI output. That’s not a lot of ports for an adapter this size, but this thing does feature an M.2 port for external hard drive functionality in this dock, which is pretty cool! Note: This hub does not support NVME M.2 cards, SSD is not included.
