These Sound PEATS wireless earbuds, which are perfect for taking morning meetings while tidying up.


Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

These earbuds run for four hours per charge and have smart touch technology, so you can control your tunes and answer calls without reaching for your phone, all without having to hear your housemates having their own meetings.

Promising review: «I’ve been dragging my heels to make the move to wireless earbuds — I thought for sure I’d lose one and that having to charge them would be a massive inconvenience. My husband bought these as a gift and now I love the convenience of not having to hold my phone when out and about, should I want to listen to my music. Their holder has magnetic properties, so when charging or just being stored, you don’t have to worry about the earbuds falling out and getting lost.»

This LIFX Smart LED bulb, so you can set up customised mood lighting for different phases — which is especially helpful now that your entire day is spent in one place.


@lunarsequence / Via instagram.com, Amazon, @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com

Promising review: «LIFX lighting is the best purchase I’ve ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it’s also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it’s time to wind down and it’s much easier to fall asleep. It’s perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There’s a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you’re playing! It’s so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE.»
