Reusable handwarmers - no microwave?

Can anyone help me find reusable handwarmers that don't require a microwave for heating? My old dad really feels the cold in his hands since his stroke but doesn't have a microwave and I'd love to get him something a bit better than the ratty mittens he's got now.

Lots of them you just bend them to heat them up, and then restore them by heating them in a pan of water on the stove.

I saw some in House of Frazer the other day, don't remember the brand though.

I got some from Lidl a couple of week ago that you reactivate by boiling them on the stove. They're part of dd1's stocking.

Zippo do one in two sizes. You fill it with lighter fuel. Expensive initial outlay but a lot cheaper in the long run than some of the other options on the market

Recharge via a usb plug. 2 settings so you don't get too hot. Last FOR HOURS.

And no messing with boiling water or fuel sticks or anything that could cause an accident

jedenfalls thank you so much, they look perfect!!! My dad's disabled now so anything involving lighter fuel/boiling water/gas is too dangerous. These look perfect!

Not reusable but Hot Hands ones are brilliant. You can get them in bulk from Costco or Amazon.
