Try one of these bed trays next time you want to spoil yourself or your significant other. They'll keep everything safe and stable, and are also excellent for reading and using a laptop, too.

Editor's Notes

July 16, 2019:

There are more ways to use a bed tray than just for serving breakfast in bed. In fact, these mini desks are perfect for working on your laptop, writing, drawing, and more. We've included in this list a variety of models, some made from high-quality wood and others from durable plastic. There are options with adjustable legs and even one with a cushioned underside for enhanced comfort. Bed trays are great for those who are recovering from surgery or illness, and they're also useful for elderly individuals with limited mobility. For an even more comfortable experience, consider pairing you bed tray with a sit up pillow.

The Welland Cushion Padded, Songmics Tilting Top, and MyGift Clear Acrylic have all been removed due to fulfillment concerns. On the other hand, the LapGear Media, Mavo Craft Breakfast, and Mind Reader Adjustable are new additions to the list, included for their versatility and thoughtful designs.
