When summertime rolls around, working from home can either feel like the biggest blessing or a total drag. The advantages of it—like zero commute or the ability to wear what you want without getting any disapproving looks from coworkers—can be especially teasing when the warm weather hits. It’s easy to become irritable when you’d rather be at a rooftop bar or lounging on the beach, or if your skin’s sticking to your desk chair and you just can’t cool off.

No one wants to work in a space that makes them feel uninspired, which is why one key part to staying motivated while working from home during the summer is having a nice, enticing setup.

Make this your most productive summer yet with these summer desk essentials. From small summer skincare necessities to cute accessories, fans, and more, these essentials will elevate your desk setup and make working from home feel like a breeze.
