What would you like to see today?
We’re a year into working from home, and chances are you’ve already invested in a few products to make working from home more comfortable and effective. Now, as many companies across the country are beginning to reopen or partially reopen their offices, it’s time to invest in a few smart purchases for an office-flexible lifestyle.
Maybe you’re swinging by the office two days a week, and working from home the other three. Or maybe you only come into your HQ when it’s time for an important meeting or presentation. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to take some time this Spring to invest in a few key products that will help you level up personally and professionally in 2021.
Here are 1Huddle’s top 10 recommendations to get you started:
Price: $300Why it’s a smart investment: If you’re one of Peloton’s three million subscribers, you’re investing in a whole new way to train and work out. But even the world’s best fitness instructors can’t help you reach your full potential if you don’t have the gear to back you up. Peloton’s Bike+ Works accessory set comes equipped with shoes with cleats, a set of weights, a bike mat, a reversible workout mat, and one set of resistance bands. It’s everything you need for the ultimate cardio and strength experience. If you’re looking to level up your workouts, this is the perfect kit!
Price: $57.72Why it’s a smart investment: Everyone needs an energy boost to start their workday, (and maybe a couple more as the day goes on) but all the sugar and dairy from many of the popular coffees on the market aren’t healthy or sustainable. That’s where Super Coffee comes in; it’s enhanced coffee that’s powered by plant protein and contains no added sugar. All their products are keto-friendly, and they have coffees for all sorts of different dietary restrictions and preferences. So if you’re looking to stay energized without all the heavy sugars and add-ons, this is the coffee for you.
Price: $27.95Why it’s a smart investment: When you’re working both from home or in the office, you need a smart notebook that’s versatile, portable, and matches your unique aesthetic. The Moleskine notebook is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin. The Yukai Du collection is limited edition and was designed to help you express yourself and make your personal mark on the world. So come back to the office in style and in touch with a sustainable Moleskine notebook!
Price: $128.00Why it’s a smart investment: The best part about working from home during Spring? Being able to move your home office outside for a little fresh air and Vitamin C. If you live somewhere with cool winters or unpredictable weather, having a beautiful, sustainably-sourced blanket to bring outside with you is a must. Faherty’s blankets are custom woven on looms with long-staple cotton yarns, then specially brushed for a time-worn, soft hand feel. The result: a versatile blanket with the perfect blend of ruggedness and comfort to get you through chilly nights at the campfire or cozy nights on the couch.
Plus, 10% of sales from these beautiful custom blankets go to the Spirit Horse Nation and Lakota Way Healing Center. Faherty is a brand that knows the beauty of these patterns were inspired by indigenous art and weavings, so a portion of sales rightfully belong to the native community. This is the perfect purchase for everyone who wants to stay cozy and warm while supporting a sustainable, community-focused brand that’s working to do good in the world.
Price: $220.00Why it’s a smart investment: The Grovemade Desk Shelf provides ample space for up to two screens for workers who are using both a laptop and desktop. It’s crafted from 15-ply premium hardwood plywood, aluminum and natural cork, and it supports up to 50 lbs. And you can expect great quality for the price. Each desk shelf is made by hand in Govemade’s local Portland, Oregon workshop.
Price: $175Why it’s a smart investment: Now is the perfect time to invest in wardrobe staples that can keep you cozy when working from home while doubling as sleek, professional clothes to revamp your office closet. This wool long cardi is the ideal wardrobe staple for anyone who needs to throw on the perfect cardigan while heading to the office or for a midday stroll through the neighborhood. This cardi is Allbirds’ signature spin on a timeless silhouette, which combines form and function for a cold-weather layer you’ll cozy up in year after year. It’s made of 100% ZQ Merino wool, and Allbirds carries a similar style for men—the men’s wool hoodie is the same price and comes in three sleek color choices!
Price: $2,995 or $149/moWhy it’s a smart investment: Ever wished you had both a personal gym and personal trainer available at your fingertips?
