Everything you could ever need to make the transition as smooth as possible.
The right clothes, grub, and gear can help you perform your best. Heck, that's a huge reason why those of us who spent the last year-and-change working from home liked working from home. You could wear whatever you wanted to wear, trick out your space with gadgets galore, and not have to worry about lugging your stuff to and from the office on your commute. But just because you're preparing to return to office life doesn't mean you need to leave all the habits, hacks, and hardware you've accrued behind. You managed to adjust and work from home.
