These Throw Pillow Inserts to Upgrade Your Comfort Level
Sometime soon I’ll be upgrading my throw pillows. The ones I’ve used have hit the end of their life and are starting to fall apart.

They told me that this was an excellent option for the frugal shopper that I tend to be.
This Dragon Wing Fidget Toy is Fun for all the Family
There’s a reason fidget spinners are so popular with students who have ADHD. They help reduce anxiety and increase focus — two benefits that make them great for Zoom calls, too. This one has a stainless steel center bearing with three rainbow-colored dragon wings attached. It spins silently, creating a colorful swirl.

This Magic Board Creates Wonderful Art Using Just Water
Add a touch of flair to your meeting-time doodling with the amazing Buddha Board. Just flip it open and the cover becomes a base for your easel. Fill the special brush with water and use it to “paint” images on the board. It’s great for soft, fluid strokes that create the look of Japanese art. Have fun filling the board with artwork, and then watch as it slowly fades away over time, leaving a blank slate so you can start all over again. (Just be careful not to use it to take meeting notes or you’ll be in trouble when it comes time to read them back.)
Mold these Magnetic Balls Into All Kinds of Shapes and Structures
Talk about tactile fun! This set of tiny magnetic balls is the perfect thing to fidget with while on a Zoom call. You can form them into shapes and mold them into sculptures. Then just smoosh them together and store them in their cute carrying case. They come in a bunch of different colors. (The purple set is my fave.)
This optical illusion spinner looks beautiful on your desktop
Unlike some spinners, this metal ball has a flat base and is designed to sit on your desktop rather than rotate in your hand. As it twirls, the etched swirls on the ball create an optical illusion, making it a mesmerizing focal point. Having something like this to look at occasionally during a Zoom call can help cleanse your visual palate after endlessly staring into the faces on your monitor.
These Reusable Storage Bags Are Eco-Friendly And Cute
I got my husband this set of reusable storage bags for his daily PB&J sammy at work, but they also come with smaller snack-sized bags for the kids’ lunches and gallon-sized bags for big-batch cooking and freezer meals. It’s easy to be eco-friendly and organized with this set that generates so much less plastic waste.
Build a Fun Desktop Tower with these Balancing Stones

See how high you can build your own desktop Stonehenge. It’s a soothing activity that’ll free your mind to focus on the content of the call.
Charm Them With This Bracelet Addition
Surely you’ve seen someone throw their hands up to make the “heart” sign. In jewelry form, it’s an interesting departure from your typical heart-themed jewelry.

She’ll be, let’s say, charmed.
Put Your Thoughts Down on These Paper Notes
You’ve probably seen these notepads in other forms, like check-off packing lists for a trip or a “Don’t kill the kids” note for the babysitter. This one is all about love, where you can tell your partner what you love about them and why. Each pad comes with 60 sheets, perfect to hide away and break out 60 different times. I recommend sticking one on the bathroom mirror before he or she is out of bed.

With this handy tool, you’ll have a cheap but versatile option that comes with two double-ended bits that are also magnetic, making holding and maneuvering screws much easier. They even have a non-slip texture to maintain a grip when working. For the price, you’ll have a tough time finding a tool as reliable as this multifaceted mini-screwdriver.
This Keyboard Brush that Whisks Away Crumbs and Dust Stuck in Your Keys
Making sure your technology is in pristine condition can make or break how long your gear can last. Dust and dirt can be brutal on keyboards, computers, and mice. Knowing this, I often dreaded cleaning the keyboard, which is my least favorite part of tech maintenance for my office. Recently I stumbled upon a brush designed specifically to aid in the task that makes me procrastinate my desk spruce up sessions. With such an affordable cleaning option, it’s no surprise that this brush has stellar reviews.
This 10-Foot Power Strip Expand Ports and Protect Electronics
My computer room, like many others out there, has a lot of devices that need to be plugged in. Most areas of my room have a traditional dual outlet, which has far fewer ports than I need to keep my office running. The alternative solution I opted for was to grab a power strip that can keep all my devices powered at once. Not only does my power strip power all my devices, but it also is surge protected, meaning it will keep your devices from being fried should there be a power outage or a storm surge. It’s an excellent way to safeguard your electronics and is worth the understandable price point.

These days we’re all thinking about air quality and cleanliness, so for peace of mind I’m picking up this air purifier. The compact design fits anywhere, and it’s whisper-quiet so you won’t even notice it’s on. Great for bedrooms or wherever you spend a lot of time – the pure HEPA filter removes particles as small as .3 microns, or 500 times smaller than a human hair!
This Blanket Keeps the Cool on those Hot and Muggy Nights
Just this morning, I woke up in a puddle of sweat, which, let me tell you, is not fun. That’s why I literally added this cooling blanket to my cart a few seconds ago (I’ve been eyeing it for months at this point.) It’s made from a blend of natural cotton and special Japanese cooling fibers that help pull heat away from your body. Choose from five colors, including blue, green, pink, grey, and more.
These Soft Fabric Storage Bins are Practical and Come in a Variety of Colors
I love the stylish, upscale look of these Fabric Storage Bins.

Works great for throw blankets, bathroom accessories, remote controls, or anything else you can’t figure out how to corral!
