Having a designated workspace in your home office is necessary for maintaining focus throughout the day, but if you really want to stay razor-sharp, you'll need a dependable cup of coffee by your side. With Stanley's line of insulated mugs, you can keep your coffee—hot or iced—at the ideal temperature all throughout the workday, so you won't have to soldier through another sip of a lukewarm disappointment.

The line is highlighted by Stanley's 24-ounce Go Tumbler ($26), which has a splash-proof lid that can help prevent unfortunate spills wherever you happen to be working. Made with stainless steel and double-wall vacuum insulation, this tumbler is built to keep your coffee hot for up to six hours or cold for up to 40 hours.

The Classic Trigger-Action Mug ($23) has a push-button lid that’s easy to open. Like the Go Tumbler, it has double-wall vacuum insulation that keeps beverages hot for up to seven hours or ice-cold for up to 30 hours.

Stanley also offers the Master Unbreakable Trigger-Action Mug ($50), which boasts similar insulation and is made with the thickest stainless steel currently on the market, according to the company. All three models are safe to go in the dishwasher, so you'll have one less thing in your kitchen to worry about.

Now that you have the perfect mug, make sure you’re filling it with a great cup of coffee. Here are 11 tips on how to brew better coffee at home.

Duke Cannon/Dr. PawPaw/Bliss/Amazon

Chapped, cracked hands are one of those little annoyances that can turn into a big headache after dealing with them for a few days, but after a long winter, and with all the hand-washing everyone is doing due to coronavirus concerns, it’s nearly unavoidable. To give your skin a sigh of relief, we’ve rounded up our favorite lotions, creams, and balms that will heal your raw palms and have your knuckles feeling soft and smooth in no time. Check them out below.

And it’s not just for helping your palms and knuckles—this balm can also be used on your lips, nails, and cuticles, and as a tool to tame flyaways or stray brows. It’s the multipurpose secret weapon that’s a must-have for any bathroom cabinet.
