Avoid Super Bowl fumbles with this cup pillow that holds drinks on the couch — it's $28 at Amazon

The Cup Cozy Pillow is also insulated to keep beverages hot or cold for longer.

Whether you're prepping for a Super Bowl party or have a movie night coming up, there's something worth thinking about aside from your menu: your couch. Specifically, how to enjoy a beverage without it resulting in spills and stains. We've found a fun invention designed with this very purpose in mind: the Cup Cozy Pillow. Yes, a cup pillow might sound a little strange, but this cushioned cup holder offers a sturdy spot for storing a variety of drinking vessels, as well as odds and ends that you don't want getting stuck between the cushions. Pretty smart!

Keep your couch clean and your drinks cold, thanks to this insulated cup caddy.

Made of insulating foam, the Cup Cozy Pillow doesn't just secure your drinks to help keep them from tipping over — it also extends the amount of time they stay cold or hot. This 16-inch rectangular version has three receptacles, one of which has space for a handle, though they all expand to fit a variety of cup sizes. And while using it for beverages is the most obvious way to go, it's also ideal for storing your remotes, glasses and any other small items you don't want to lose track of. Another plus? No more water marks on the coffee table!

In addition to being a handy couch accessory, the Cup Cozy Pillow is also ideal for serving breakfast in bed or keeping your car's backseat blemish-free during family road trips. Oh, and cleaning's a breeze: Just remove its cover and toss it in the machine.

Over 1,600 Amazon customers are loving the Cup Cozy Pillow.

"Very durable drink holder, which helps when I want to use my hands for other things and my dog jumps on my couch," shared one relieved pet parent. "I throw glasses, mugs, my remote control and phone in the holders without the fear of anything ruining my beautiful sectional. I have recommended this product to friends as well!"

"We use this in the car and in the house when we're not on trips," another impressed reviewer chimed in. "It is sturdy and capable of fitting multiple sizes of containers. It also functions as an actual pillow if needed. The bottom of the cup holders (inside) are all reinforced with a hard plastic encased in fabric. Will likely purchase one of these again."

"This has been great post-surgery," wrote a final fan. "I put my adjustable bed remote, glasses and drink in it. Even put my phone under the handle, though it’s not really intended for that, it works. My only suggestion might be to make this a tad thicker/taller."

Be it a stein, tumbler, mug or to-go cup, your beverage vessel will always find a safe place to chill.

Psst: There's also a Cup Cozy Deluxe Pillow!

For larger gatherings, this supersized cushion has room for five drinks!

"This thing is perfect!" gushed a happy buyer. "I actually plopped down on the couch right next to it, forgetting my coffee was half full in it, and only a smidge spilled. I mean, I really flopped down. I was super impressed that the whole thing didn't tidal wave out. My kids and even our German shepherd come and go right next to it, and it holds drinks firm."
