One of the best parts of the holiday season is overnight visits from family and friends, but it can also be the most stressful aspect if you aren't prepared to host. However, with the right air mattress, you don't need a separate guest room or ultra-fancy bedding to accommodate visitors. Thanks to built-in pumps, sturdy technology, and elevated design, today's air mattresses are no longer the glorified sleeping bags of the past. Forget those flimsy, uncomfortable, outdated iterations, and shop the luxe air mattresses below for their firmness and convenience. Your guests (and their backs) will thank you.
