Do you hear that? The sound of Christmas bells ringing? The intoxicated conversations over the 5th dinner of the week? The Christmas jingles blasting on the streets? The muffled chatter of shoppers on the streets? The whisper of your eight-year-old daughter that she wants some candies?
Yes, it’s the Christmas season, our favorite time of the year. It’s the time that we get to spend with our family and friends, a time of giving and paying it forward, a time of spreading joy and love to whoever we come across with.
Like many others, my personal favorite month of the year is December. After the long year, I’m just so happy to be in the company of my loved ones sharing stories and gifts this giving season. I’m Secret Santa to someone in the family and I can’t wait to fulfill everything written in her (I’m assuming “her” because of the codename) wishlist!
Have you written yours and made sure it’s detailed to the core? Or did you give your Secret Santa a hard time? Personally, I think if you have something particular that you want, you should let your Santa know. You’ll both be happy at the party, for sure.
Here at FlexiSpot, we’re feeling the Christmas spirit so we asked some of our loyal patrons what they have on their FlexiSpot wishlist.
Ann Rivers, 29, Freelance Copywriter
I currently work for three advertising agencies so imagine how hectic my schedule is fulfilling copies for them. I can’t even begin to say how crazy the holiday season is! I work almost 10 to 12 hours a day so it’s very important for me to have an ergonomic workstation. I just never really had the time to shop for a quality standing desk but I’ve heard a lot of my friends rave about the wonders it did for their work efficiency as well as reducing neck and back pain. I would be so happy if I could get a Comhar All-in-One Standing Desk for Christmas. My friend gave me a link to it and I just love the wooden finish! My desk is also usually cluttered so having a pull-out drawer would help me be more organized.

This past year, I’ve been trying to expand my reach so I’ve been using multiple platforms because it’s really the name of the game right now. You have to be everywhere! Tiktok, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter—you name it, I’m there. Of course, I still primarily focus on YouTube but these social media sites I also have to be active in to get more viewers for my channel. This means that I need my workstation to cater to all my needs. Angles are very important when creating videos so adjusting the height of my desk or better if I have a standing desk converter to keep my videos at eye level when I’m standing. One day, I was scrolling on my Facebook when I saw an ad featuring the FlexiSpot AlcoveRiser Standing Desk Converter. I like that there’s a removable keyboard tray because it gives me extra space for all my gadgets.
David Brown, 27, Software Developer
I really like my job because it pays well but to be honest, it takes a toll on me physically. My eyes, back, and neck get strained from working eight to 10 hours in front of my two desks every day. I’ve been doing these for seven years already and I think it’s just about time that my workstation gets an upgrade. In my wishlist would probably be the Intelligent Monitor Arm with Docking Station so I could adjust my desk monitor at any time, if I want it closer or farther from me, below, within or above eye level, portrait or landscape, etc. I also want to be active so I’d love a Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair because it has a mesh backrest that I could lean my back on and also pedal my feet while coding a project for my clients. Last is a Kana Pro bamboo Standing desk so that I could stand anytime while working and not suffer from prolonged hours of sitting.
Monica Sanders, 30, Accountant
As an accountant, I deal with a lot of numbers every opening and closing of the month. I have to keep a lot of tabs on our employee list so I keep lots of electronic and printed records. Since working from home last year, I just repurposed my bedside table and a stool for my work. I’d really love it if my company could send me over an Esben Standing Desk from FlexiSpot. The compartments in the desk would help me organize my everyday items because trust me to lose everything during crunch time. My calculator’s always missing when the deadline is nearing! So I could also use a cabinet for all my ledgers and journals. I went through the FlexiSpot site and loved the Mobile File Cabinet 011. I like that it has three tiers and I could also put caster wheels under it which would make it easier for me to drag it to different parts of the room.
Stephen Jones, 25, Architect
I’ve been working for a firm for five years now and next year, I really want to start my own practice. I think the timing now is just perfect. I have some friends from university who want to partner up and we all have past clients from before that were satisfied with our service. Not to mention, we have a long list of manufacturers, contractors, and suppliers that would be easy to tap when we get our practice going. So I’ve been slowly preparing for the role and we plan to work remotely for a year or so. It’s been hard to look for a desk that would be perfect for my job but FlexiSpot came right in to solve my problem. For Christmas, I really want a Height Adjustable Drafting Table from FlexiSpot. The tabletop is tiltable so that could really help me finish my projects well!
