My daughter is VERY hard to buy for. She travels on a huge bus with her brothers A Cappella music group and must pack light. She was so ecstatic to recieve this as it keeps her as warm and cozy as she wants to be. She called me to say, her bunk, one of 18, has a place to plug this in and she is so happy with it! Everyone else wants one now too. So whether you travel the road around the country in a big bus, or in a car on a short trip, you have my word that you will love this blanket. I have one too!
