Vivian Le / Kara Birnbaum / TODAY

Let’s be honest. The opportunity to work from home has many perks. From a super short commute to getting some extra zzz's, being able to work from home can potentially change your quality of life. That being said, working from home can also come with its own set of issues, too (think children screaming in the background of your Zoom meetings or the isolation that comes with working alone).

Below, we’ve rounded up 63 of the best sanity-saving gifts for people who work from home so you can easily get work done wherever you land (your desk, the couch, your bed...we’re not judging).
