So many of these gadgets are useful, making office life more convenient (and keeping your managers happy!), and some of them are downright ingenious.

Whether you’re looking to change up your office flow or just want to contribute something great to your team, check out these 12 office gadgets that your employees will love in 2020.

1. Affordable Standing Desk Converters

Actual standing desks are expensive, but the positive health effects have made them increasingly popular in 2019. Instead of springing for entirely new furniture, test out standing desk converts. These are much more budget-friendly, and can be placed on top of your desk when you’re feeling like standing instead of sitting.

Many are also adjustable, including this one, so there’s no need to worry about height discrepancies.

2. Laminated Wall Calendars

Project management software can keep your team on track, but having a visual that everyone can see regularly ensures that nothing slips between the cracks and that everyone is on the same page. Have one for the office in general, or get a few for each department.

‍There are wall calendars you can add to a blank wall in your workspace, where you can add everything from office meetings to big deadlines everyone needs to remember. Choose a laminated option like this, so that it’s easy to set up and clean.  

3. The Pomodoro Timer

The pomodoro technique is a productivity-booster that encourages workers to work for 25 minutes at a time on a set task, take a short break, and then head back to work. After four 25 minute sessions, you take a longer break. If your office encourages this scheduling, choose an adorable pomodoro timer to help you stay on track (and on schedule!)

Any timer will work well for this, but you can’t beat a timer in the shape of an actual pomodoro tomato!

4. Solar-Powered Battery Charger

We’ve all been caught with our phones dwindling much closer to zero battery than we’d like, and it always seems to happen when there are no plugs in site. This solar-powered battery charger is a game changer for these situations.

All you need to do is stick this charger against a window with great natural light, and use it to get your battery life back up. As an added bonus, using solar power instead of electrical can cut back on energy bills over time.

5. Book-to-Screen Highlighter/Scanners

If you ever need to sort through a large number of documents and files to find key facts that must be organized, this book-to-screen highlighter and scanner is a great gadget that your employees will absolutely love.

As you glide this highlighter over a document or book in front of you, it will scan the text directly to the computer application or web browser of your choice. It can even translate the text into more than 40 different languages.

These are some of the best office gadgets to invest in.
