While you might normally think of a bean bag as something that you'd find in a dorm room or a child's bedroom, they're actually a pretty versatile piece of furniture.

Perfect for winter, these cozy chairs can make a comfortable lounging spot for adults, little ones and pets alike. The chairs have evolved beyond the old sacks with beans or beads and have become much more stylish, with velvet upholstering and even Sherpa material. Filled with memory foam and available in more structured forms, you can also find more supportive options than the ones you had as a kid. Some of these chairs can even span across seasons, functioning as both indoor and outdoor furniture.

With that in mind, we found 15 bean bag chairs that are worth adding to your cart, from ones that look like actual chairs to more classic options. Plus, many of these picks will arrive before Christmas, so they're a great option for gifting!

The best bean bags

Sofa Sack Ultra Soft Bean Bag Chair

Soft and comfortable, you can't go wrong with this "bean bag." It's made from a comfortable memory foam material that's fluffier than your typical bean-filled chair. It also has an average 4.3-star rating from more than 11,000 reviews. Reviewers note that it takes a few days to fully fluff up after you unpack it, but many people have said that they appreciate how large and soft it is once it has fully expanded.

Channel Cloud Icy Aqua Bean Bag Chair

You'll love snuggling up on this chair thanks to its soft, plush material. The cozy seat is made with channel tufting and is filled with polystyrene beads (50% of which is recyclable), which help the chair retain its supportive structure, even with repeated use.

Moon Pod Bean

Create the ultimate space for relaxation in your home with this luxury (and TikTok-favorite) bag. It’s filled with high-density beads that mimic the sensations of flotation therapy (basically, it makes it feel like you're floating in space). It can be laid flat for your afternoon nap or propped up to provide back support for reading or gaming.

Chill Sack Bean Bag Chair

This five-foot bean bag is available in more than 30 colors to fit every space. The oversized chair is stuffed with a soft memory foam and can fit up to two people.

CordaRoy Chenille Bean Bag Chair

Perfect for guests or sleepovers, this big bean bag chair can be converted into a full-sized bed. All you have to do is unzip the cover and flip the inner cushion and you'll have a comfortable sleeping spot that can fit up to two adults. You can choose from three cushion sizes, full, queen and king, to suit your needs.

LoveSac MovieSac

According to LoveSac, these sacs "may look like a beanbag, but they're so much more." Instead of beads or beans, each one is filled with a Durafoam blend, which is said to absorb body weight evenly and won't compress over time. There are a variety of size options, including one that will fit up to four people. The MovieSac is perfect for lounging alone or cuddling up with your little one.

Creative QT Stuffed Animal Storage Bean Bag Chair

While this option isn't technically a bean bag chair, it's a pretty creative storage solution.

Plus, it will help you minimize mess.
