23 Practical Gifts For Anyone Who Basically Never Wants To Leave Their Bed

Products that'll *keep* them in bed, not make them *get out* of bed. Just so we're clear on that.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!).

1. A lap desk featuring a built-in mousepad so they can work, study, or game without having to sit at an uncomfortable desk. It'll fit most laptops or tablets, AND has a cubby to plop their cellphone in, giving them the fully bed-based command center of their dreams.

Promising review: "I'm so in love... I always use my laptop while sitting up in bed and it gets uncomfortable especially when my laptop starts to heat up on my leg. This lap laptop desk is everything. It's light weight and fits my phone and laptop perfectly." —Gia

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in five colors).

2. A bed caddy to keep all their favorite necessities within arm's reach (remotes, iPad, coloring book, what have you). It's especially great for someone who doesn't have room for a nightstand, OR just needs to free up some extra space on their bedside table.

Promising review: "Before I purchased this bedside organizer, I searched all the the products and read many reviews. I finally settled on this because of the look and so glad I did. This is so well made - the fabric is a heavy canvas. It has pockets that hold my iPad, phone, remotes and still room for a small item. So reasonably priced for a great product." —Dforpal

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

3. A Luna weighted blanket guaranteed to keep them calm and collected as they binge-watch the most intense, dramatic scene of their favorite TV show over and over again. It'll feel like the blanket is giving them one giant sympathy hug for as long as they can stand it.

These blankets are designed for use by one person and the weight of the blanket should be no more than 10% of your body weight.

Promising review: "After reading other reviews on weighted blankets, I decided to go with Luna. (I have bought two now, one as a gift) I love that the material is organic cotton, and the beads are not made of plastic. Thr material is cotton so it is light but strong. I have used this blanket for three or so months now. Having battled insomnia, restless legs, joint pain, and muscle pain, I had read that a weighted blanket could help. Honestly, I hardly have sleepless nights now. The blanket isn't too heavy but just heavy enough. I did get the 15-lb, technically too heavy for my weight according to studies, but I love my blanket!! Before I had this blanket there were many nights I was awake until 3 a.m. due to insomnia and pain. Now, usually within a half hour of winding down, I am asleep! It calms my restless legs , and really lessens muscle and joint pain! Blanket is sturdy, holding up well. Totally worth the money." —sunshine

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in 14 sizes and 21 colors/patterns).

4. A splurge-worthy Slip silk pillowcase designed to prevent annoying tangling and minimize their bed head.

They might also be interested in the Slip silk sleep mask.

Promising review: "I have used silk pillow cases before. Nothing compares to this. The fabric quality is amazing. Very very slippery which is what you want. I like that the other side of the fabric that sits against the pillow is woven just a bit different. Hence, since it is not as slippery the pillow does not slide all over inside the case. It is a dream to sleep on and hug!" —valerievaleraw

Get it from Sephora for $89 (available in 11 colors).

5. An adorable customized sleep mask that'll ensure they get their much-needed beauty sleep by 1) blocking out pesky sunlight and 2) perfectly matching all their cute pajama sets.

Promising review: "Feels silky and blocks out light! Perfect for sleeping." —kassandrrx

Get one from Gigaroo Shop on Etsy for $6.25+ (available in six colors).

6. Speaking of, a cute and comfy pajama set because if they're laying in bed all day, they at least deserve a wardrobe of quality pajamas to cycle through. This set is incredibly cozy without being *too* hot, and looks and feels MUCH more luxurious than the price would suggest (you'll probably wanna snag a pair for yourself, too).

Promising review: "Having suffered from eczema all my life, I finally decided to search for comfy sleep clothes that don't make me itchy & scratchy all night. Voila! Here they are. These PJs are well-made, with a jersey-like material that doesn't wrinkle and has bounce. Very comfy!! I already have trouble getting out of bed, and these PJs will certainly not help that issue. But buy these & sweet dreams!" —TRC

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 39 colors/patterns).

7. A sunrise alarm clock that'll wake them up *gracefully* with a sunrise simulation light and one of seven ~natural~ sounds. It also doubles as a convenient reading lamp or night light, and features a gentle snoozing feature, which'll keep them in bed for as long as their lil' sleepy heart desires.

Promising review: "TL:DR; this is an amazing little product and I highly recommend it. I suffer from mild insomnia and generally have to use sleep aids, which is fine but not ideal for every night. I also moved from SoCal to Washington state a year ago and I have NEVER been exposed to so little sunlight in my life! Living in the dark winters here is insanely difficult for me. This little alarm clock has changed my life and I’ve only had it for like three weeks. The sleepy time setting has the ability to KNOCK me out without the use of sleep aids! What?! My brain totally responds to the way the light functions. The morning alarm is so gentle and peaceful (you can completely control the noise and brightness settings). I wake up much more naturally rather than to the blaring honk or passive aggressive chiming of a traditional alarm (looking at you Apple). The light settings are so fun as well! I love having it on a low setting in while I’m journaling, reading, watching TV, anything really! If you’re hesitant to purchase this, please take my review in to consideration. I would pay two to three times the price for this thing. It’s 100% worth it." —KatieM

Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

8. A set of cable clips so they no longer have to reach down into the dark abyss that exists between their bed and nightstand just to retrieve their phone charger every night. These'll stick perfectly on their nightstand or even on the wall to keep all their cords organized and accessible.

Promising review: "Can’t believe I got this many for such a low price! They’re super durable, glue is super sticky and long lasting, easy to remove cords in and out with the silicone, and they have a wide enough loop for even the thickest cords! I keep one next to my nightstand to hold my cord, among some in my kitchen and office too, and I still have some left over. Highly recommend!" —A. Fry

Get them from Amazon for $7.99.

9. Or a handy charging pad that is basically a coaster for their phone. All they have to do is set their phone on the circular mirror, and it'll magically begin charging.

This is compatible with both Apple and Android phones.

Promising review: "One of the most aesthetically pleasing wireless chargers I've ever seen & used. I've tried different ones and they either take too long to charge & gets hot or are bulky. This one is perfect for leaving at home, work and taking with you to travel." —Ken

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in eight colors).

10. OR, a bamboo charging station to keep ALL their electronics and chargers beautifully organized. There's room for everything from their cell phone to wireless headphones, to their tablet and smartwatch.

You will need to purchase a power block that'll fit underneath the charging station.

Promising review: "This product is amazing and helps a lot with my devices so I can conveniently charge all my Apple products together, including, My iPhone 7, Apple Watch, AirPods, iPad 6 gen, and my portable charger. I just love the way this product looks and how it helps a lot. You do have to buy your own power block for the chords so make sure you're aware of that. Overall this product is great and I consider the price fair for $20 but know power blocks are a key part and also usually run for $20 as well." —Matthew

Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

11. A large body pillow that'll ensure they sleep with good posture and prevent back pain. It'll also give them something to cuddle while they watch scary movies in bed (or take an online quiz for school they didn't study for, which is equally as frightening).

Promising review: "This body pillow is essential. There's a few things in this world that I claim to be necessary over just a want and this is one of those things. I can't express how amazing it is to be able to snuggle this giant (20" X 54") cloud. My body feels so much better after being able to align it properly I guess because I haven't woke up with a single pain since I first started sleeping with this. The bamboo cover is removable which is perfect for washing. If you're ready to sleep comfortably again then what are you waiting for?!" —Belle Esprit

Get one from Amazon for $49.99.

12. An adorable mini humidifier perfect for the person who is always complaining about dry skin and chapped lips. This'll not only keep the air in their room from getting too dry, but will also bring them SO much joy — it's just so dang cute.

Promising review: "I can honestly say I was shocked to find this little gem especially for the price. I have used it daily since it arrived at my doorstep. I’ve been taking it back and forth from home to work, but I will instead buy a second one, and most likely a couple more as gifts, as Christmas is around the corner." —Helen Quigley

Get it from Amazon for $12.89 (available in five colors).

13. A reading pillow to conveniently prop them up in bed while they color, do homework, binge-watch... If they use it to *actually* read a book, well, that's just impressive.

Promising review: "I’ve been looking for a pillow that my son could take to college. He is over 6 feet tall and most backrest pillows are pretty short and don’t have much support for the head and neck. This pillow fits him great. If he sits up real straight his head is off the pillow but he can scrunch down and get comfy and still have plenty of support. The grey is fine but it has a shininess to it. He likes it and that is all that matters." —jellybean

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

14. A set of flannel sheets that'll keep them warm and toasty all night long (and all day long, too, because we're talking about the person who never leaves their bed, remember?).

Promising review: "I LOVE these flannel sheets. The fit, the feel and the quality are all excellent. I know because I paid double for a set last year from a company that only sells high quality bedding. I can tell these are already superior in comfort alone. Durablity is still be determined....but seems to be a quality product. No way would I pay double again when I can get these! Not to mention split king sheets are not easy to find." —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $36.99 (available in twin-split king and 11 colors).

15. And a pack of sheet suspender straps to keep those flannel sheets pulled nice and tight, because we all know the fear of waking up in the morning only to find our sheets dangerously wrapped around us.

Promising review: "Tell me I’m weird but I’ve always HATED wrinkles on my sheet when I sleep. It’s just not the sensation you want to be experiencing when you’re supposed to relax. I ended up having to straighten my sheets every night and it was really a pain. I’ve seen those on Instagram and didn’t even know it existed. Bought it. Received it quickly. Put it on (I recommend FLIPPING THE MATTRESS because otherwise it’s very hard to put them on, just save yourself time) and then it just looked great and it stays on whatever you do. I just can’t praise this product enough. Plus as a traveler I’m happy they don’t weigh a lot and I’ll be bringing them with me everywhere!" —Yasmine

Get them from Amazon for $9.

16. A starry tapestry so it *always* feels like bedtime in their bedroom. And, thanks to its Instagrammable aesthetic, is sure to whisk them off into a deep, restful slumber in no time.

17. A water carafe to keep at their bedside, so they literally don't have to get out of bed for more water when they wake up completely parched at 3 a.m.

Get it from Home Relax Studio on Etsy for $32+ (available in two sizes).

18. A wooden bed tray they can use to beautifully display their magazines, books, remotes, or lotions — OR use it as a mini table for sipping coffee in the morning and a lovely breakfast-in-bed situation.

Promising review: "Very handy little table tray to eat or work in bed or couch. Bought it for use after my daughter had surgery so she could eat in bed but we use it all the time now afterward as it’s very convenient and easy to fold and easy to clean after use." —K

Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

19. A string of globe lights to pair with their new tapestry and instantly transform their bedroom into a dreamlike safe haven with literally no effort.

Be sure to get some 3M Command Hooks to hang the lights with ease!

Promising review: "Beautiful string lights! Used them for a party and was impressed with the quality of the lights and ease of use. I used some 3M-tape wall hooks to hold them up high. Remote is IR so it must be pointed directly at the plug to work. This is no big deal because once you decide on flashing vs static and brightness, you’re done! Plus, no dead bulbs in any of my three sets." —Andy

Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

20. A set of smart plugs so they can simply say, "Alexa, please turn off the light," because their significant other is *completely* over having to get out of bed and do it for them.

If you don't have an Alexa, these also work with the Gosund app available for download on iPhones and Androids.

Promising review: "Love these! They have made my life so much easier. I have three lamps and one fan connected to each other. Now, I don’t have to get out of my comfy bed when I forget to turn off something downstairs! Wooo! Tip: Make sure you download the BLUE app (not the green one!) and then the set-up is super easy and quick." —Patricia

Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in a four-pack).

21. A leaf-shaped trinket dish to keep all their rings, earrings, and lib balm within reach. Whatever they want to display, this'll be a pretty catchall to keep on their nightstand.

Promising review: "Very cute! I bought it for a friend for her birthday and she loved it. It's very aesthetically pleasing and nice to the touch, but definitely will break if you drop it, so keep it in a safe area. It's the perfect size to display your special jewelry. It's very nicely made, and is perfect for someone that loves that natural aesthetic." —Lisa

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

22. A set of decorative mini succulents so they can get the design points of being a plant parent, without having to actually get out of bed and be a plant parent.

Promising review: "Looooove these little guys. They look incredibly real, and give some life to the apartment. I have these on my coffee table and a few in the bathrooms. I get compliments on them all the time — just bought more for my sister!" —Lee A.

Get a set of four from Amazon for $24.99.

23. And a mini retro speaker they can use to amplify their guided meditations and current podcast, or just bop to their favorite tunes.

Promising review: "I have always liked products with a vintage style, and the color Pink, so this surely caught my eye. The speaker connects seamlessly to your phone and the sound quality is fantastic for such a compact device. I'm glad I bought this product, definitely worth your time and money." —Angelo Fierro

Get it from Amazon for $19.89 (available in six colors).
