For practicality and versatility bean bags are hard to beat. You can pick them up for a just few pounds and there are some great designs on the market nowadays too.
A couple of things to consider are where the bag is going to be used (indoors and/or outdoors) and what’s the likelihood of it needing to be cleaned.
For outdoor use you’ll want a bag with a cover that isn’t going to damaged if it gets wet. In other words, nylon.
As far as keeping clean goes, the old fashioned kind with a removable cover are great but there are plenty of fabric options with a water resistant surface that are easy enough to wipe over once in awhile.
