Get your calm on

If you’re a guy who spends a lot of time at home these days, you’re not alone. The shift to remote work has become permanent for lots of people since the pandemic. So, if you’re one of the millions of full-time WFH folks, you may find that both your wardrobe and your workspace are in need of some upgrades.

And the holiday season is the perfect time to update what you’re working with!

Well, good news. Here at SG HQ, we’re real big into staying home. It’s one of our favorite things to do, really.

So, what are the best WFH gifts to get and give this season? Read on.

In the event that you or someone you love could use an extreme home makeover: WFH edition this holiday season, we’ve got the gifts to ask for (or simply give yourself) below.

Shop the best gifts for WFH:

chefman nugget ice maker
Countertop nugget ice maker, $299
rocco fridge
Super Smart fridge, $1195

Nothing can replace the simple pleasures of making small talk at the water cooler with Susan from accounting about last night’s episode of The Golden Bachelor. But that doesn’t mean you have to do away with the water cooler experience entirely.

Arm yourself with at-home hydration station this holiday season. Nugget ice is all the rage with the TikTok girlies, and this one seems to be everyone’s favorite.

And if you’re lucky enough to have your own office at home, not just a corner of the living room or kitchen? Consider investing in a small drinks fridge. With four cooling modes and racks that pull all the way out so you never forget that pamplemousse La Croix hiding in the back, you’ll be living the luxe wfh hydrated life.
