“I bought 2 packets of wild harvested Palo Santo at the height of the COVID-19 situation and have been burning them regularly at home. It gives the house a nice citrusy scent which lifts the spirits and keeps negativity away – something very much needed these past two years of the pandemic. I’ve been eyeing these two kits (crystal mining and fossil digging) for a while but felt a little embarrassed about indulging in my inner child. But who cares! I’m an adult now, and I should indulge in these inexpensive joys if I can! Oh and by the way, the prices are so good I won’t be waiting till Prime Day. I have checked out these items. I can’t wait to receive them within 24 hours thanks to my Prime membership!”

"My most recent purchase via Amazon was the highly coveted Playstation 5! I have been waiting for it to be back in stock. So when I saw it on Amazon, I wasted no time and got it immediately. True enough, it’s now out of stock! The PS5 has brought balance to my WFH experience as I unwind after a long day of meetings. I’m also on the lookout for new accessories for my PS5! This foot massager seems like the best possible gift for my wife, so I do not have to massage her every day. The Amazon Prime Day discount makes it an attractive deal."

“Having to work from home meant needing a space to feel comfortable, spending eight hours or more a day. Being a huge fan of Greek and Hellenistic legends, this statue of Athena was a thrill to find on Amazon and was perfect for those times when I needed breaks in between bouts of staring at data on the screen. I have started late evening drink sessions at home with the on/off mini-lockdowns and the ban on dining-in. These adorable panda glasses never ceased to put a smile on my face, even after a long or hard day at work (or both). Changing the lighting to suit my needs or mood is one of the joys I've had this past year and a half stuck at home. These Philip Hue lights may be marked for outdoor use, but they make fantastic indoor lights in places where the regular track lights may feel out of place. I only have two of them, but they're on my wish list because I'd like to have more.”

"This is perhaps one of the best value microphone I can find because of its dual output nature. I can plug it into any USB port to use it as a microphone for online conference calls or even gaming (it works for my PS5), or I can use it professionally as a podcast microphone thanks to the XLR output option. I’m looking to get this because it allows me to safely attach my phone to the bicycle while riding. Plus, the phone case is sleek and secure too!”
Gabriel Gray, hacker extraordinaire
"Lenovo Flex 5 notebook is my absolute best buy ever this year. I use it for surfing the net, watching TV series, movies, and sports live streams – everything. The Amazon Prime Day is usually the time I upgrade my mobile device because of the massive discounts! An Apple smartphone sounds like a wonderful idea this year."

I've decided to spruce up my kitchen area by tidying up the dry food cabinet. I bought a standing spice rack that's perfect for my kitchen top to stock things within my reach. Now that I'm working from home more than ever keeping my house tidy is topmost on my mind. The next item on my wish list is a storage box with wheels, as I intend to stash my clothes and bags neatly away.”
Elizabeth Tong, Video Producer
"Hands down, the best investment for me was the Sony wh1000xm3 sound-cancelling headphones. It’s perfect when I need peace and quiet while working at home. My favourite items on my wish list are those that can help me improve my core and upper body strength, like the pull-bar. I'm looking at them mainly to enhance my performance for aerial silks practice, but I believe it will help my fitness levels in the long run."
