1. Headphone Stand
If you frequently have to take calls as part of your job, a headphone stand could be a helpful accessory to add to your desk.
Not only are they great because they stop your headphones from getting tangled (if you still wear wired ones of course) but they will jazz up your working space.
This accessory is essential if you don’t have the luxury of working from home and have to pop your headphones in to answer work video calls.
You can get absolutely tons of different types of headphone stands, but we like this Rock On one from MenKind especially – it’s only £20 too!
2. Laptop Stand
Laptop stands improve your posture and help to reduce back and neck strain, so if you haven’t got one for your desk setup already, be sure to invest in this accessory.

There’s a variety of different laptop stands available to suit everyone’s preferences, sizes and budgets, with Amazon offering a range of affordable items so you can be comfy in or outside of the office when working.

If you’re someone who likes to keep their phone next to them when working, perhaps you need to answer calls or you just like to take a little break to have a scroll, be sure to invest in one of these bad boys.
They’re super convenient because you can charge from anywhere, so if you’ve already got tons of things plugged in at your desk, you don’t need to worry about clutter!
One charger can also power multiple devices which is a winner, there’s lots available but we’d suggest heading on over to Ikea to take a look at their accessories.

Plants make anything look good if you ask us, but there’s also many other benefits that come from adding some succulents to your working space.
Such as, plants can improve air quality, reduce stress levels, reduce fatigue and improve attention levels to name a few!
If you’re not very good at remembering to water your plants why not invest in a cactus which barely needs watering?
Or, get a fake plant if you’re just looking for something to make your desk have those all-important cute vibes.
We’d recommend heading over to Urban Outfitters to see their range of desk plants – they even come with their own plant pots.
You don’t need to stop at one plant, get a few if you have some empty space to fill at your work space, or within your home office.
