A bean bag lap desk or table is a convenient flat table surface, supported by a bean bag cushion beneath, that can be used almost anywhere. Most have an attached handle for easy carrying, like this LapGear lap desk.
The bean bag filling in the cushion allows it to be easily molded and shaped to a lap for comfort and to an ideal level or angle.
Bean Bag Filling
The denser the bean bag filling, the more stable, but heavier, the lap table will be. For most people this wouldn’t be an issue, but for those who dislike pressure, such as those with fibromyalgia or poor circulation, this may not be the best choice. In this case choose a table with legs that elevate it above the lap, like this winsome wood bed tray.
The bean bag filling can also be purchased separately and can be added to most bean bag cushions, but you may need to cut into the cushion to add the filling. Few bean bag lap tables will be manufactured with the ability to add more bean bag filling without cutting into the seams of the cushion.
One of the best features of the bean bag lap desk is that it comes in so many types, sizes and colors. You’re sure to find one you will love for yourself or someone else you know. These make some of the best gifts to give for birthdays and at Christmas. It isn’t something many people think to get for themselves, so it always makes a great gift idea.
Great for children, students, travelers, the infirm and the elderly.
Because the bean bag lap desks are so easily portable they are ideal for anyone travelling, including children that can use them in the car, in a hotel room and by the pool or in bed. Handy for the days they’re home sick from school.
Young children will love this ALEX Desk-to-Go that sports many storage pockets for their crayons and papers.
These are also very good for the teenager that can’t sit still at a table or desk to do homework and would rather sit on the floor, the sofa or in bed, but still needs the flat surface for getting the homework done.
Teens will love the Quatrefoil Lap Desk that has a built in cup holder.
A bean bag lap desk is very affordable, ranging from $10 to $85. Making it a very affordable gift for yourself or someone else you know. Treated well, it can last for many, many years.
