Working from home? Check out these Amazon home office buys, all of which have been designed to make your life easier, your productivity levels higher and your desk tidier. It's time to get out of the working from home rut, especially as for some of us this may become the new normal – whether that's five days a week or only three. Apparently, 23 per cent of people have been looking to buy some home office tech recently – and we are hardly surprised. Because working from our dining tables just isn't doing it for us anymore. Simple buys from an Amazon Smart Plug to a desk organizer and a desk-friendly smartphone holder, all have the power to motivate you to tick off your to-do list every day.

We've heard from Alexa Smart Home Manager, Toni Radzihovska, for some recommendations on how to get the most out of your (makeshift or not) home office with Amazon – using smart tech, too. “It’s more important than ever to create a working from home environment that fulfils your individual needs – whether that’s gearing up for the working day or winding down at the end of it."

Check out these home office buys below, all of which you can buy from Amazon today. Prime member? You'll probably be using your new buys from tomorrow.
