A Trick Up Your Leaves

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What It Is: Sometimes a gift idea is as simple as a single item. This two-in-one snuggly cotton blanket / wrap is a perfect gift that’ll take you from summers on the beach to fall farmer’s market trips to winter sleigh rides to spring picnics and back again. It can be used as a full on blanket, but also tucked into place to work as a functional, all-Canadian wrap. With fringed ends and a cool maple leaf motif, it’s a cozy piece with more than meets the eye.

Who It’s For: Your wife, to keep her warm at work. Your niece or nephew, to stash in their new car for impromptu excursions. Your best friend, as a fabulous housewarming gift.

What It Costs: $68

Where It’s At: Roots.

  37. Lisa S says:

    It’s very pretty and I love the Canada theme. I would probably spend most of the time wearing it pretending I had a cape though… Captain Canada?!
