Living with chronic pain, fatigue and discomfort from illness or a disability means making yourself a comfortable spot on the couch or in bed isn’t just a fun thing to do when you’re home on a cold day — it’s often a necessity. When you’re in a flare or in a lot of pain you might have to hunker down with the just the right pillows and blankets to help yourself through.

If you use comfort items often or are at home a lot because of an illness, you might get tired of the typical items you find in a department store, with their muted colors, classic designs or even no design at all. But there are lots of cute, fun options out there that can help you get comfortable while also bringing a smile to your face. At the very least, having a few fun items on hand can help brighten your home or even a hospital room, or make great gifts for someone in your life who’s struggling with health challenges.

Below, we’ve rounded up 19 too-cute comfort items that can help you get cozy and stay warm in style.
