HotHands: A Gift that Warms Your Heart (and Your Other Parts)
A Simple Equation: Hot Hands = You Warm
Want to make me happy in the winter?
Give me a stash of HotHands!
Fill my stocking full, tie up the soft, lightweight packets of compact comfort with ribbons to make a pretty bow, slide them in all the pockets of the bluejeans you put under my tree, and tuck them in the toes of shiny new shoes.
Hide these hand warmers in the crown of a hat, pop them in the pockets of a new baggalini, drop them in a gift bag, or use them to fill a box that needs padding for mailing--just give me those portable little heaters!
HotHands--they may be an odd gift, but they make for ahhh hands. My cold weather back up plan is always ready to see me through the frosty season. Snow is now welcome! ☃
Need to Warm Up? With HotHands it's easy!
☃ Always cold natured, I don’t believe I could live any farther north than North Carolina. Being from Florida, I did not understand that any part of the South had really cold winters.
I know, I was sheltered, but really, do you know that I am still in the South and this minute it is midnight with a temperature of 25 outside? 10 plus years and I am still not used to it.
Enter HotHands. For those of you who do not know about this marvelous invention, it is a wonder drug! Encased in foil packets to keep oxygen out, this marvelous little warmer comes in various designs and sizes to meet every need.
Some are small enough to fit in my shoes--perfect for cold church services, no pun intended. These also fit in socks, gloves, pants pockets, and hats. Others are twice as big and fit in waistbands, scarves at the back of the neck, coat pockets, and pillows.
Are you a golfer, hiker, hunter, camper, runner, gardener, snow boarder, skier, fisherman (woman), picketer or protestor, cyclist, private eye, policeman, or grocery clerk? Are you or do you work for someone who is stingy with the electricity for heat? With someone who enjoys frigid air?
There are so many reasons to benefit from the warming effects of these priceless items that keeping a variety of sizes on hand so your ready to pack a punch to frigid wather is just plain common sense. Doing without them makes no sense at all!
As well, sharing them has added benefits. Your family and friends would warm right up to this gift tucked inside a crocheted hat and glove set and that would warm your heart in another way!
Have you used HotHands to stay warm in the winter?
Be Prepared for Cold Temperatures with HotHands!
☃ My most unique experience with using these dear friends was at a wedding in Alaska. No, it was not an outdoor wedding, but it was Alaska in the fall.
The small packets fit neatly inside my dress shoes and the fact that that I did not have to lug around a big heavy coat made my visit to that region blissful.
They worked beautifully and if I did not love them before that point, it would have been the beginning of a life-long love story...pun intended on this one. :)
The product packaging states how many hours a particular packet will last if used properly. My experience is that they always last longer than the packets promise. Some are designed for 8 hours of warmth, and I recently saw some with a whopping 18 hour promise on the labels.
Typically used by outdoors enthusiasts, these would make wonderful gifts for anyone fighting frigid temps in any place at any time.
Right now, mmmmy fireplace is not rrrrreaching this room well enough...I’m ggggoing to open a HotHands ppppacket nnnow. It's a good thing they are cheap enough to use as needed!
