Sledding, snow angels, skiing. Winter can be a great time for outdoor fun. But with it comes below-freezing temperatures that can cause a range of health problems such as frostbite. Feet and toes are particularly vulnerable, according to the National Institutes of Health, so it’s important to keep them protected.

Little Hotties’ Toe Warmers offer a convenient, easy solution. These small packets provide up to five hours of heat and include an adhesive to ensure they don’t move while warming. Using them is simple: Just remove the warmers from their package, shake the contents to activate them, peel off the adhesive backing and stick them into the toe of your shoes. The half-moon shape has a thin adhesive layer that fits snugly under or above your toes.

Warmers are made from safe, natural warming ingredients including iron powder, water, salt and charcoal that are activated when mixed with air. No dangerous fluids, fumes or flames. Packets measures 3.75 x 1 x 2.75 inches and are fully disposable. Contents are biodegradable.

Price per pack of 10 pairs (20 total toe warmers) is $15. Other quantities are available. Packets also are available in hand-, body- and foot-warming styles. Purchase online at littlehottieswarmers.com.
