Winter Gifts: Lavender Scented Heatables

Winter Gifts: Lavender Scented Heatables

Winter weather often inspires me to get crafty, because I spend more time indoors and holidays are my favorite part of the season. I love giving homemade gifts!

This year I was inspired by our chilly-ass office and one of our team members who wears a coat 24/7 indoors, to make these heatable packs as gifts. All you gotta do is pop it in the microwave and you have a nice little personal heater to warm you up. They are super easy to make, last a long time, and you can customize their size as much as you want. I have one that I made back in 2010 and it still works like a champ.

Things you will need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Uncooked rice
  • Dried lavender or lavender oil (or other scent you like – I mixed rosemary in with a few, you can get creative)

Note, these should not get wet! Wet rice turns into cooked rice…which is not what you want in your heatable.
