Working from home is something none of us ever imagined we'd still be doing in December, but a lot of us are - so we better get used to and make the most of it.

Many of us have started to settle into our home working routines, but if you're still yet to transform an area of the home into a practical working space; it's probably time to start.

Although lockdown 2.0 officially eases up in parts of the country as of Dec 2nd, we still aren't much closer to pre March 'normality' for now at least.

Research from Piplsay recorded that out of 7,000+ participants interviewed, 65% of Britons said they are comfortable working from home, with around 40% reporting that they see themselves working from home for at least another six months.

We found great deals available at Amazon and Argos, with leading stationery supplier Ryman's another good place to look for all of your WFH supplies.

We've rounded up some of the essentials worth looking out for.
