Rory Hat and Handwarmers
When those cooler days hit, it’s nice to have something to warm your ears and your hands, or at least to have something between your hands and a chilly steering wheel. This hat and hand warmer set is the perfect fall accessory—not too bulky for the cool weather and just enough in your hands to help. The hand warmers are also great for those frigid summer offices.
