Are you missing your trip to the nail parlor? These heated hand mitts will bring back warm memories of pampering.  Three temperature settings.  $19.23.




I have been using these washable gardening gloves instead of disposable plastic gloves when I go out walking in the world.  They ‘breathe’ on the back, but the palms and fingers are covered in a durable, protective nitrile coating.  My hands don’t get clammy inside.  When I return home – they go right into the washing machine. They are sturdier than the disposable gloves I have, but only provide waterproof protection on the palm side.   Three pairs for $12.95.
