A few tips to help you get a better shot would include;
Adding some depth to your shots by adding different height levels, it always adds a nice feel to a product pic and can create a great bokeh effect too.
Use props that could be lying around your house for example coffee cups, chopping boards, pots, pans, plants etc to add some diversity or character to your photo.
Colour coordination, keep a colour theme that benefits your final shot. Make sure you dont have too many colours going on that could make the photo seem busy or cluttered unless this is the intention.
Good lighting is a must! Try not to use direct sunlight if shooting during the day but natural light is always best with either a filter or indirect sunlight. Or if you are shooting at dusk or night, have a good light source with a smaller light to the opposite side to ensure it is well lit but not missing detail from the side where the main light isn't.
Texture is always good, as an example the use of water, stones, coffee beans, plant leaves... etc can always add a little 'je ne sais quoi' when taking a product photo.
Edit if you have the means a lightroom (or similar free apps) edit is always a good finishing touch, play around with the contrast, exposure as well as the highlights, shadows and colour tweaks.
