Best Laptop lap desk for games

I often play games in the living room on my laptop to be near my family as they watch TV. I am not interested in the show, but don't want to be locked alone in the office either. I am in the market for a new lap desk. Does anyone use a lap desk for gaming? The features I would be a place for my mouse and maybe some padding. I am open to suggestions and must have features. I am on the frugal side of things, but I would pay more for an exceptional experience.

Please post model names or links for your recommendation.

This will probably get a better response in the Tech and Help section.

Edit: Um... nevermind?

I can’t speak for the best, but a good budget option I can recommend is this:

Honey-Can-Do TBL-02869 Portable Laptop Lap Desk with Handle, Black, 23 L x 16 W x 2.5 H

It kind of depends on what laptop you have. Does it run cool enough you can just keep it on your lap cross-legged? That is what I do. If it is not or you really want a desk, do you need one that just keeps it off your lap (like Tom posted), or do you need one with active cooling like fans? That is the first deciding factor. After that, keep weight in mind as a heavy one will be annoying to use.
