    amazon.com, Amazon

    My friend Alyse has a similar coffee table in her apartment and it's the best!

    Promising review: "Love my new coffee table! My girlfriend has been working from home, and she sometimes prefers to work from the couch, so I bought this to make her life a little easier. She loves it! Delivery was quick!" —XP

    Get it from Amazon for $121.99+ (available in three finishes).

    4. ~Chill~ wall art that deserves some prime real estate by your fave piece of furniture for a visual reminder as to why you're there.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19+ (available with or without a frame in four colors).

    5. A splurge-worthy sound bar to help you enjoy watching Killing Eve *even* more. Who knew that was possible?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The Bose bar was a bit smaller than anticipated. But as it turns out, it is perfect for our entertainment area. It is loud if you want loud. It syncs with my Spotify bluetooth app on my phone and is great sound. It has a dialogue setting which clarifies the movie's dialogue when it's hard to hear what's being said. Would highly recommend this item." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $199. Or, check out a cheaper option.

    6. A Roku player that works with Alexa to let you easily stream all of your TV/movie apps from your couch (aka, how it *should* be).

    Amazon

    My parents use Roku for their streaming needs and I think it's far more user-friendly than the Google Chromecast that I use in my apartment (sorry!). In fact, I might make the switch myself.

    Promising review: "Easy to set up. Easy to use. Works great. I have been using Roku since they first came out and every version gets better. This one will not disappoint. I have owned many of them and right now I have three of this model in my house. I cut the cord a year ago and it's nearly impossible to do that without a Roku. Click buy now!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    7. A mug warmer because once you've settled into your designated spot you shouldn't have to move because of a tepid bev.

    A mug sitting on top of the Mr. Coffee mug warmer, which looks like a thick coaster.  There's also a spoon and a tea bag sitting on an actual coaster right beside it. This warmer is sitting on a desk.
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's going on a little over a year since I got this coffee warmer and I felt I needed to let everyone know that this is the best coffee warmer I've gotten. I work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it is on the entire time, five to six days a week. It keeps my tea at just the right temperature — not scalding or room temperature like other warmers I've purchased. The 60-inch cord is long enough to go across my large desk. The hot plate is 3.25 inches in diameter, making it the right size for even my large-bottomed coffee mug. The entire warmer is 5.2 inches by 8.6 inches, so it's not cumbersome having it sit on my desk. This was a great purchase. I'm glad I got it." —Christin Fern

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

    8. A microwavable plushie that can snuggle up with ya' in case you find yourself spending a big stretch on the couch thanks to cramps, sore muscles, or just because you hecking want.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29 (available in six styles; also check out similar adorable heating/cooling pads).

    9. A memory foam seat cushion with cooling gel to make your well-worn go-to spot feel a little more supportive 'til you can splurge on a new couch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I fractured my sacrum. Geez! It hurt a lot. This cushion made things like riding in a car, sitting in a crappy airplane seat, sitting at work, and watching TV on the couch bearable. Now that my back is mostly healed, I’m still using it. I love how comfortable it is and keeps my posture in check. If I could suggest an improvement, I’d want them to make the very bottom layer firmer so that as it compacts down over time, the bottom of the spine is still protected from touching anything." —ncjean

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    10. A couch coaster to keep your drinks safe from your butter hands. Sometimes reaching out to the coffee table for your wine is too much effort.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    11. Or, a foam caddy to hang onto several drinks and the ever-important remote. Lol if I don't always have both a coffee and a water by my side.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We put this in the center cushion on our three-seater sofa because we didn't have room on the wall for side tables, and we love it. It's great quality and durable. I was worried about it toppling over, but it's very sturdy and holds multiple drinks, and tolerates quite a bit of movement and doesn't even budge." —Jena

    Get it from Amazon for $36.98.

    12. A remote organizer to help corral your various clickers into one spot. Here's to less time spent hunting 'em down.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This remote control holder is the best I’ve ever owned. Not only is it elegant and attractive, it is nice and light weight and has room for at least five remote controls, however depending on the thinness of the controllers, you could probably fit more in there.

    Since it basically just sits on a side table, I believe it’s made of quality material, and will last a very long time. It matched my decor perfectly, and looks exactly as pictured." —Nicole Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five colors).

    13. A foot roller for giving yourself a nice massage because why not? You're sitting down anyway. I have one of these parked at the foot of my couch and use it allll the time while I watch my stories.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I work a very physical job where I am on my feet 10–12 hours a day. I was experiencing so much pain in my feet that it was unreal. I bought this after reading the reviews and my gosh, I fell in love! I put my feet on this for about 10 minutes a night, and I feel like a million bucks. It's easy to use, I just set it on the ground in front of me when I'm watching TV on the couch. Sit with your back straight and your body in a 90-degree position. Instant relief. Anyone that experiences tenderness, soreness, etc. with their feet NEEDS to get this product!" —Galen Morehead

    Get it from Amazon for $18.75.

    14. A red wine stain-remover to help remove any mishaps on your fave throw, clothes, or the actual couch. LBH, if you're not screaming at your TV, you're not watching the good stuff!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been using this product for nearly three decades — not because I keep spilling wine, but because this stuff will remove just about any kind of stain you can think of. It is easy to use and your carpet/rug, upholstery — just about any fabric (the company advises that you test Wine Away on an inconspicuous piece of fabric before using)." —J.P.P.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    15. A (more than) decent-looking slipcover to change up the lewk of your living space and help get a few more years out of Old Faithful.

    Feendy / Etsy

    Seriously, have you ever shopped for a slipcover? Most of them are hideous!

    Get it from Feendy on Etsy for $27+ (available in four sizes and a variety of colors).

    16. A storage ottoman you can prop up your feet on and stash your couch essentials that don't need to be out in the open all the time (think magazines, throws, etc.).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in two colors).

    17. A memory foam pillow that'll give your back the support it needs during a rewatch of the first season of RHONY (trust me, something that's well worth your time).

    Amazon

    My mom has one of these and it is soooo comfy yet supportive. It has some give but not TOO much give, so it offers an adequate amount of support for your poor lower back. I use it all the time when I'm visiting my parents!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.87.

    18. A bamboo end table just the right size for your laptop and a plate of snacks so you don't have to balance that stuff on your actual lap!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    19. Throw pillow covers to help liven up your living room look. Just a lil' refresh like this can make a HUGE difference!

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon: two corduroy covers for $13.99+ (7 sizes, 21 colors) or two linen covers for $14.99+ (3 sizes, 10 colors)

    20. A lil' couch potato pin nearly as cute as you that you can sport when you're (sadly) not on the couch.

    JennifairyW / Etsy

    Get it from JennifairyW on Etsy for $9.03 each or $16.77 for both.

    21. A convertible velvet couch that'll also provide somewhere for a guest to sleep when they show up on your doorstep. Also, DANG it looks so much pricier than reality!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this couch! It was easy to put together. I use it in the futon position very frequently for my kiddo to nap on and it converts in a flash. It is such a great value for the price and looks polished. I am so happy with this purchase." —Guavalava

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $369.99 (also available in gray).

    22. Or a super affordable couch that's also super comfy... if you're in the market for a replacement.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I went out on a limb and bought this before there were any product reviews. I needed a small chaise sectional for my den and this was the perfect size. It offers a midcentury-ish style while still providing comfort requisite for a den (my living room couch is pure mid-century art and not comfy for sitting, haha). The couch was delivered without incident or damage and it was quite easy to put the legs on (note that there is one non-tapered leg...that one goes under the middle of the couch). The cushions are quite comfy — firm but cushy. The hubs sits on it for a few hours each night and so far, no craters or sags in the cushions at all. The fabric is quite smooth to the touch but has a slightly heathered or tweedy look to it. Overall, I am so pleased with this couch and the price I paid was a steal." —Heather Coburn-Schill

    Get it from Amazon for $295+ (available as a chair, loveseat, sofa, sofa bed, and sectional, and eight colors).

    23. An armrest caddy to hold onto the remote instead of hunting for it in between the cushions.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99. Or, check out a similar option in different colors.

    24. Or a handsome custom arm table that'll have enough room for this month's magazine haul while serving as a surface for your pint glass.

    Wilbur Davis / Etsy

    Get it from Wilbur Davis on Etsy for $215 (available in seven color options and a variety of widths).

    25. A couple of bowls made for using on the couch because I wouldn't even wish spilling cereal all over the couch on my worst enemies.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get two from Uncommon Goods for $38. Also check out a similar ergonomic dipping bowl for stuff like chips and salsa.

    26. A foldable set of pet steps in case your fur baby keeps you company on the couch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My older Boston terrier loves these stairs. Perfect for older dogs and little dogs that can’t jump on the couch anymore." —Jackie Onassis

    Get it from Amazon for $42.42+ (available in two heights and eight styles). Also check out a similar ramp.

    27. Or a natural cat deterrent spray in case your cat is ABSOLUTELY not allowed on the couch but hasn't gotten the message.

    FMN Natural Apothecary / Etsy

    Promising review: "Fantastic product! It has a lovely smell of citrus and spice to help protect my rug. While my cats detest the smell, they were delighted with the extra treats enclosed in the shipment including a new ball and catnip. Thank you FMNNatural Apothecary, will order again!" —Jonathan

    Get it from FMN Natural Apothecary on Etsy for $15.99.

    28. And anti-scratching couch protectors to keep your kitty from going to town on your sofa (or any upholstered furniture).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It worked! First couple days my cat tried to remove stickers. But i just put another one again. Then he gave up and let it be. By now I already took them off and miraculously he isn’t really interested in that spot!" —Katya

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    29. Fairy lights with photo clips to adorn the empty wall behind your couch so if you're hanging out solo on the couch you can still feel like your friends are there with you!

    Amazon

    Get a strand with 100 lights and 50 clips from Amazon for $11.99.

    30. Comfy bike shorts that'll still feel like a FASHION moment while giving you lots of movement to wiggle into your fave position under a throw blanket.

    American Eagle

    Get them from American Eagle for $22.46 (available in sizes XXS–XXL; check out all of American Eagle's bike shorts).

    31. A floor lamp with shelves to keep the stuff you need within arm's reach while giving you a lil' reading light.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This lamp looks nice, the paper glows nicely and doesn't shine directly below - there's paper below the lamp as well as on all sides (but none above). It does need to be assembled, but it's pretty straightforward - easier than Ikea. The cable can be routed nicely with the little clips that come with it. I use a few pieces from the sticky foam pad to make it so those clips don't slide down." —RadGH

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99 (available in four finishes).

    32. A rolling acrylic table that'll be an amazing sartorial choice but also easily sidle up to your favorite spot when you need it.

    Allison Weyda / Etsy
