NIFTY hand warm­ers from Kath­mandu may be worth pop­ping in your travel bag if you are head­ing for cold climes. The PVC pouches con­tain a metal disc that, when flexed, causes the sur­round­ing gel to crys­tallise and heat up to 54C. (We tested the hand warm­ers in Travel&In­dul­gence’s of­fices and they stayed toasty for more than an hour.) To re­use, the pack can be re­heated in boil­ing wa­ter for five min­utes un­til the crys­tals are com­pletely liq­ue­fied. $18.90 for a pack of two from Kath­mandu stores. www.kath­
