I'm trying to make a small hamper for my best mate who is a dog trainer, working outside in all weathers - thinking of theming it as "winter survival kit"
So far I have a nice scarf, handwarmers and hot chocolate. Any ideas gratefully received!

Stainless steel thermos, either for hot drinks or one for hot food such as soup or stew.
A heavy duty facial moisturiser and lip balm to prevent chapping.
Thermal socks (TKMaxx have a fab selection)

Mulled wine syrup
Mint humbugs
Instant porridge or soup sachets

Ignore the scarf, you already have one grin

Handwarmers ?

I've had a couple of the poundshop ones which you reactivate by soaking in hot water. They are OK heat wise but can only be recharged at home.

I then bought a charcoal one, which I take when camping. Similar to this one.
