Announcement   Welcome to Gigi's Handy Work, home of Helmuffs® - ear muffs for your bike/skater/snow helmet! Keep your ears warm and your helmet on your head.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2015: I'm putting out a new model of Helmuffs! The inside/back side that sits against the head is now taller than the outside/front side. The inside/back should be tucked under the helmet when putting it on, and in this way, your ears are completely covered. No more air gaps no matter the heft of the felted material, or the style of helmet you use.

SALE: And because of the new model, I want to get rid of the old stock! For most, this older model works really well (attested by the repeat buyers!). Still, I want to get that old model off my shelves. See the SALE section of my shop for deals.

If you don't see something here that screams "that's the pair!", then check out my site of all the Helmuffs® I've made over time: GigisHandyWork.com

Maybe you'll find one I can make again, or those pics will inspire you to request a new combination, or an entirely new color or design. Just ask; I'll let you know what I can do!

Keep checking back - new styles and old favorites coming regularly. And new products will surface as needs are discovered and challenges are met.

Helmuffs and all of my creations have developed from needs in and around my life. If I can't find what I need, I try to make something to fix the issue and if I can make it pleasing, all the better. It's problem-solving, it's creative. It's what I like.

Recieved quickly and were even more gorgeous in my hands than in the photo. Easy to put onto my helmet and didn't get all wet and sticky when it was too toasty. Love them!

My material (mostly) comes from thrift shops, remnant pieces from fabric shops, and donations from family and friends who appreciate my cause to make useful things out of otherwise discarded pieces.

I look for 100% wool clothing and wash and dry those items in hot before starting a piece. This way I know the item will not further shrink and will be as felted as possible. However, because of the variety of makers, some wool felts more thickly than others. Also, my pieces depend entirely on what I can find out there, so not all designs and color combinations will always be available.

If you have a desire for a particular color or shape design, please write me and I can probably make a special listing for you!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment Option "PayPal": Payment can be made through PayPal. Please remember to finish your purchases at PayPal!

ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT REGARDING SHIPPING GIFTS OR TO ALTERNATE ADDRESS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT: If you do not have a PayPal account, they will only accept the same Shipping Address from the Etsy order as your Billing address. You can skirt this by entering your CC billing address on the Etsy Shipping address so you can complete your non-account PayPal payment, but then write me a note in your sale of where you would really like to ship the order.

Non-payment & non-contact after 24 hours may be considered forfeiture of any items you have purchased.

Orders will not be fully processed until receipt and completion of payment.

Payment Option "Other": This payment option is reserved items purchased where payment is exchanged in person. If this is not the case for your purchase, then the above PayPal option is your option.
Shipping
Orders will be shipped within 5 business days of received payment

Domestic orders will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail unless otherwise specified

International orders will be shipped via USPS First Class Mail with proper customs forms declared.

INTERNATIONAL Buyers Please NOTE: Buyers should be aware that there may be customs fees/postal fees assessed at your post. I do not control international customs charges and/or extra postal fees in any country and so you, the buyer, will be solely responsible for those fees to receive your order.

You certainly may refuse the order and once I receive the product in return I will refund your payment (less shipping charges) via PayPal.
Refunds and Exchanges
These products work for me, but if they don't work for you, they just don't work do they?

Please contact me if you are dissatisfied with your purchase.

Based on each unique situation, store credit/exchanges up to the amount of your initial purchase are possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please see notes in Shipping Policies regarding International (non-USA) orders.
