This is our favorite standing desk at one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. The bamboo top is environmentally friendly and looks great, and you get four engine presets.

It has one motor that can take the desk from 28 to 48 inches with three height presets, and the surface is made of high-quality chipboard. This deal is only available to Amazon Prime members.

Full Jarvis Monitor Arm for $90 ($39 off)

This is a VESA-compliant mount that’s rated up to 20 pounds and comes with a five-year warranty. Build quality is good, and we like the built-in cable management. It is made by the same company that makes our favorite standing desks.

The stand is only on one side, so it will not be difficult to place it near a sofa or bed, and the height is adjustable. It’s quite stable to work with and you can roll it out of the way when you’re done.

Nouhaus Ergo3D Office Chair for $330 ($40 off)—Click the coupon

This is a pretty comfortable chair for the price. It’s all mesh, which allows for better airflow and is great if you tend to get hot. You also get a headrest, and the chair is quite adjustable. It comes with two sets of wheels – wheels and rollers – so you can make it work on different types of floors.

ErgoFoam Adjustable Footrest for $34 ($6 off)

We like this height-adjustable footrest for people who spend hours at a time at their desk. The plush cover comes in velvet or mesh and is machine washable.

Kingsmith WalkingPad

Kingsmith WalkingPad A1 Pro for $650 ($49 off)

Former WIRED writer Arielle Pardes was a fan of this under-desk treadmill, which she used to log miles a day while doing her regular work. Fellow gear team member Medea Giordano also likes walking gear under the desk, which can help keep your body active (and sharpen your mind) while you work.

Monoprice Extra Wide Microfiber Desk Mat for $10 ($8 off)

Desk mats are a great way to keep things classy in your room, and these also double as a giant mouse pad. This microfiber mat isn’t that fancy, but at this discount, it doesn’t have to be.

Satechi Dual-Sided Eco-Leather Deskmate for $32 ($8 off)—Click Coupon

This polyurethane leather mat is lovely, especially in pink. You can flip it over for a new color. It is easy to clean and smooth to slide a mouse over.

Mobile Pixels Duex Plus

Mobile Pixels Duex Plus Portable Monitor for $270 ($20 off)—Click the coupon

Attach this 13-inch laptop screen via magnets to the back of your laptop and slide it out when you need an extra screen. It doesn’t take up any extra desk space and is great for in-flight tray tables (but maybe not so much for your neighbor), and it just needs to connect to your laptop via the included USB-C cable. It’s a smart system that works reliably well.

Lepow C2 15.6-inch Full HD IPS Laptop Monitor for $120 ($30 off)

This is a surprisingly compact laptop monitor for its 15-inch size, and we really like the built-in support for overall stability. There’s a range of connectivity options for Mac, PC, smartphone and gaming systems, as well as built-in stereo speakers (although you probably won’t want to rely on them).

Pluggable USB 3.0 Universal Laptop Docking Station for $95 ($24 off)

Do you need to connect a lot of equipment to your PC? This one is especially great if you’re using an older laptop or PC without a USB-C port. Connect it via USB-A and you’ll now have access to six additional USB-A ports, two HDMIs, a gigabit Ethernet and a headphone jack. If you upgrade to a machine with USB-C, you can use the supplied adapter on the cable.

Steelseries Arctis 1

SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wired Headset for $42 ($8 off)

This is a nice entry-level wired gaming headset. It works well for Zoom meetings, and you can use it to catch up with your friends online after hours. It also comes in a wireless version.

Satechi USB-C Hub with SSD Enclosure for $74 ($16 off)—Prime members only

This four-port hub has two USB-A connectors, a 100-watt USB-C port that can power a MacBook Pro, and a 4K HDMI output. There aren’t a ton of ports for such a large adapter, but this one has an M.2 port for an external hard drive function in this dock, which is pretty awesome! Note: This hub does not support NVME M.2 cards and the SSD is not included.
