These couch caddies and organizers will keep everything you need close at hand, allowing you to settle in for hours and wind down properly. Several options feature beverage holders, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Without a lot of exciting new offerings to choose from, it seems as if this space has stayed relatively stable over the last year, and we found no reason to make any new additions or omissions, save removing the Cup Cozy Deluxe due to availability issues and replacing it with the HigherGen Anti Slip.
We chose the Anti Slip over others because we liked its detachable tray and easy-to-wipe-down design, which seems like a sensible quality for a device that’s so likely to see some spillage during its lifetime, but beyond that it’s quite similar to other options we’ve included on this list, and I couldn’t help but notice the lack of interesting innovation in this category.
It would seem to me that couch caddies are obvious candidates for all sorts of useful integration, as just about anybody could stand to benefit from either a built-in wireless charging station, universal remote control or reading light, but most models in this category remain quite feature bare, and, disappointingly, electronics are all but absent.
Nonetheless, we remain confident that many of our users will find a practical and attractive option on our list that offers just the utility they’re looking for, and we’ll keep our eyes peeled during future updates for any potential advances coming down the pipe.

We got rid of two items — the Kovot Tray and NoNo Tabletop — since they are no longer available. The iLemon Sofa Holder was also removed due to its frustrating tendency to slide off the couch arm, which can lead to a mess and broken devices.
We placed four new additions on the list: two sturdy wooden trays built for armrests, a flexible leather caddy with pockets of various sizes, and a cushy model with multiple slots for holding beverages and other household items.
The Cup Cozy Deluxe has five holders, all of which can keep a beverage insulated, and some that feature special cut-outs for accommodating travel mugs with handles. Thanks to its stout, spring-loaded clamps and hard, lipped surface, the Utrax Clip On provides more reliable stability than most over-the-arm organizers.
iSkelter Desk An elegant, natural bamboo surface and sleek steel legs help make this versatile piece one of the more aesthetically pleasing models available. The base can slide under your couch for use as a sofa caddy, or you can simply set it up as an end table. It includes multiple phone docks for staging mobile devices. iskelter.com
Ebite Couch Console This modular model features a sleek design that sits right next to you on the couch, as opposed to hanging over an arm. It sets itself apart from the crowd with a phone stand, self-levelling cupholder and integrated charging dock, plus it's backed by a lifetime warranty. couchconsole.com
