Everyone loves a good Netflix binge-watching sesh now and then, but there are some people in our lives who take a once-in-a-while extravagance and turn it into a full-blown lifestyle. Our beloved couch potatoes may not be the first people we think of if we want to run a marathon or go on backpacking in the mountains, but they definitely know a thing or two about how to relax. Perhaps we can take a few tips from these cozy couch lovers and repay them with a gift that will make their favorite habit even more indulgent.
