Gifts for Grads 2011
Sumo Titan Beanbag Chair
Say Congratulations! to your recent high school or college grad the right way with one of these 12 great gift ideas.
We loved the Sway Couple that Sumo sent us for our Holiday Gift Guide, and the new double-wide Titan is no different.
At 70"x49"36", the Titan is certainly worthy of its name; it's second only to the Gigantor, which measures in at 86"x60"x40". The beanbag lounge can easily hold two average-sized adults in the seated position, making it the perfect addition to any game room, dorm room or bachelor/bachelorette pad. The Titan is also great for napping or lazy gamers, as it can fit most people (including my 6'2" tall self) lying down/sprawled out without much fuss. You will probably get some leg hang-off, much like a love seat or a recliner when sprawling out, but the beanbag is a very comfortable sitting/lounging experience regardless. This beanbag is the perfect console gaming chair, as it kept us at a perfect height in relation to our HDTV, all while providing plenty of support and comfort.
Speaking of love seats and other more "traditional" furniture, the Titan is – at the very worst – the same price as standard fabric armchair, and it's sub-$400 pricetag is much less than any new love seat worth buying (Craigslist hunting aside). Not only are you getting a stylish yet comfortable piece of loungewear, but you'll be saving some green by choosing the Titan over a chair or small couch.Most high school and college grads aren't the cleanest people you'll ever meet, but you won't have to worry about a messy roommate spilling salsa on your Titan. The fabric cover is easily removable as well as washable, so you can keep your Titan smelling lemony-fresh for years to come.
Like most of Sumo's product line, the Titan is available in two fabric types (microsuede and corduroy), with eight total color choices. Shipping is free – something we really have to commend Sumo on, given the size of their products – and every lounge comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
$379 (Suede), $399 (Corduroy)
