I have made larger ones for aches and pains but never thought of a hand warmer, what a great idea. Don't use instant rice though, it has to be long grain. Also wheat will work very nicely.

Hi Dee, Ruth made some for me as my hands seem to stay cold in the winter months. They are wonderful. You can use rice,flax seed and corn. Adding lavender or spices is a bonus. :)

Hi Dee, I make these with rice only, but my mum says you can put lavender in them. I think I might also try them with a little cinnamon, so they smell like Christmas.

I was considering making hand warmers for gifts. Any suggestions?

My husband aleays has cold hands, so I made him a couple of "hand warmers" to keep them warm. I simply cut out soft fabric into 4 (4 inch) squares. Sew right sides together leaving about 1/2 open. Turn, fill with rice and sew shut.
He just pops these in the microwave for 30 seconds or so and voila! his hands are nice and toasty. These would make nice gifts for someone who has poor circulation. Just put one on top of the other and tie a ribbon around and put a cute tag on. You can also make these in kiddy fabric and let them put it wherever their "boo boo" hurts or on their tummy. :)
