SHOPPERS are rushing to Halfords to buy a £1 product praised as “better than a hot water bottle” for keeping warm.
A TikTok user has posted a video recommending the Hot Hands product sold by motoring and cycling services retail firm Halfords.
They shared a 15-second clip demonstrating the hand warmers which can be bought for just over £3 for five pairs from Halfords.
They added the caption: “These are amazing for keeping warm – basically a temporary hot water bottle.”
Hashtags they added suggested the potential use for people who are homeless as well as those living in cars or vans.
Halfords has packets of five pairs on sale online for as little as £3.20, meaning they can cost just 64p per pair.

The company describes the items as offering “comfort from cold wherever you are”, promising up to 10 hours’ heat.
Halfords say: “They warm up quickly ready for use and ideal for walking, watching sports in the cold, skiing, golfing and hiking.”
Other new products on offer include an Advent calendar described as the perfect gift for DIY-loving dads.
The firm has, however, recently announced a series of store closures – including in the Scottish Borders town Galashiels as well as in Stroud in Gloucestershire.
Those followed other shutdowns revealed last February.
