With wires trailing all over your desk, you will soon be overcome with wire-madness. It's one of the many reasons why I try and keep my working-from-home office desk as clutter-free as possible by taking advantage of wireless technology. From a wireless Apple keyboard and a wireless Apple Trackpad (I use a Mac, if that didn't give the game away), and wireless headphones, it saves on a lot of hassle.
But for the necessary wires, you can keep them fixed and out of the way. These small adhesive pads clip wires in place on your desk, and keep unsightly cables out of sight or in a fixed location. Again, it's one of those things you will probably never notice again, but something you will never be able to live without.
This has been an utter lifesaver. You can have as many devices as you have, and more plugs and wires trailing across your desk, and taking up valuable multi-socket space. The logical next step is to ditch all of your chargers and to replace them with one, unified device.
It plugs in by USB -- which you should now have at least one spare -- and you can charge all of your devices. It supports BlackBerrys, iPhones, even Nokias, Samsungs and that magic European standard, micro-USB. Granted, you can't charge all of your devices at the same time, but it's a handy piece of kit to have on hand.

A chair is arguably the most important thing in this list of things you need. You will be sat down for most of the time you are in your home office, so you are going to need a comfortable chair that supports your back, but is also adjustable so you can sit at a desk correctly.
For goodness sakes, go out and try them out. You can't just buy one off the web. Try out a few, and should it be an expensive one, expense it to your work. If you can also get one with lumbar support, your back will thank you in the long run.
