These finds make a perfect gift idea for someone special – for a birthday present, Mother’s Day, a special thank you gift or even to just treat yourself.

Hot or Cold – a pack for all occasions

Handmade business/ New Product/ Product review/ Review

Modern & stylish cold/heat packs from Jazminbell
