Today's gift: Aromatic lavender lap blanket
Whether or not one grows lavender, I've never met anyone who doesn't appreciate its aromatherapeutic, calming fragrance. Warm this lap blanket in the microwave for three to four minutes and then wrap it around your shoulders. The rice, flax and lavender-filled blanket has a soft chenille cover that removes for washing. $49.95 at gardeners.com.
