Logitech K270 Wireless Keyboard ($20)

Logitech K270 Keyboard

This is by far my favorite keyboard for Excel because of it's simple design, dedicated function keys (F1-F12), Menu Key (right-click shortcuts), simple media buttons, and calculator button.

The battery life is great and it even fits in my backpack if I want to travel with it.

The 40 Greatest Excel Tips of All Time ($25)

This book contains Excel tips, shortcuts, jokes, and even cocktail recipes. The content was crowdsourced from over 300 Excel users (myself included).

It's a great book to keep on your desk or coffee table. Every time you pick it up you will learn something new and have a good laugh.

Baronfig Desk Organizers ($20-$34)

Use coupon code EXCELCAMPUS10 for 10% off your purchase.

Baronfig designs tools for “thinkers.” Their selection of planners, notepads, stickies, and other office tools are perfect for the minimalists on your gift list who prioritize utility in the workplace.

I especially like their neutral colors and clean lines. These would make excellent “Secret Santa” gifts for coworkers or friends who are difficult to shop for.

Price Range $40 – $100

Here are my top picks for budgets between $40 and $100.

Apple iPhone Leather Case ($35)

If you're on the hunt for an Apple-based gift, I also love the Apple iPhone Leather Cases. They're durable but a little more sophisticated than similarly priced iPhone cases.

BentoStack Apple Products Organizer ($49.95)

Use coupon code EXCELCAMPUSJON for 10% off your purchase

Do your friends or family members use Apple products? If so, they may love the BentoStack! This is an innovative travel solution for Apple accessories with 4 different compartments for storage. It would make an excellent stocking stuffer or small gift.

Xbox Digital Gift Card ($39)

Get the gamer on your list a digital Xbox Gift Card to use at Microsoft Store online, on Windows, and on Xbox.* The gift card linked below is for $39, but Microsoft offers gift cards between $22 and $100+

Buy on Microsoft

Price Range $100+

And here are our top picks for budgets of $100 or more.

Microsoft x Adidas XBOX Forum Tech Boost Shoe ($140)

Microsoft partnered with Adidas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Xbox, and they combined their iconic logo with Adidas' signature athletic design to create the ultimate “gamer” shoe.

Help the Xbox fan in your life walk comfortably with these limited edition Microsoft x Adidas Xbox shoes.

Buy on Microsoft

Insta360 Link ($299)

Another cool item for those who work at home is the Insta360 Link Webcam.

It's a webcam that follows you around the room.  So it's great if you do a lot of virtual meetings, but are sick of sitting behind the desk or want to present in front of a whiteboard.

My friend Justin has a video review of it with more detail. 

Buy on Amazon

Surface Pro 8 ($600-$1000)

I switched to digital notetaking about two years ago, and absolutely love it. One thing I really like about the Surface pen is that it has an eraser. Even though it's digital, you can flip the pen and erase anything you've written. This is something the Apple Pencil doesn't have.

I use Microsoft OneNote to store all my notes. The nice part is that you can type or write in OneNote and EVERYTHING is searchable, including your handwriting.

Buy on Microsoft

Dyson Purifying Fan ($449)

While this is more of an investment than the average fan, the Dyson Air Purifier and Fan is something to consider if you struggle with conventional fans blowing paperwork across your desk or stirring up dust in your office.

The Dyson is compact, and will fit comfortably on a desktop. It also purifies the air as it blows it gently, so it's a good compromise for those looking to perfect their work environment in a shared space.
