5 days, 5 gifts – Day 2

Start with Day 1 if you missed it.

A couple of years ago I read a story about a woman that started a business making one simple item.  I had no clue that one day I’d make one too.  After some encouragement from a loved one, I decided to jump right in.  She said they make really nice gifts. 

Presenting the beloved Heating Pad

Can also be used as a cold pack.  This particular pad is filled with rice.  The woman I mentioned above filled hers with corn.  The outside is a damask print flannel fabric.  Staying true to my love of B & W.  Very easily heated for 1-3 min depending on microwave.  Easily chilled by placing in a plastic bag and put in the freezer.

 Pockets were created down the length of the pad for an even distribution of the rice and heat.

The heating pad was scented with lavendar essential oil for its soothing and relaxing properties.

Heating pad scented with lavendar made for a very dear friend whose favorite color is purple. I made a coordinating card to accompany the gift.
