Top 5 Winter Hand Warmers

Jan 03, 2013

Keep your hands warmer this winter. There are many hot new ways to heat up your digits. Our top 5 faves this season also happen to all share one important feature -- they're touch-pad friendly. That means you can use an iPhone, Android, iPad, iPod touch and any other touch-enabled device you can think of without taking off your gloves! Genius? What do you think? (Tell us in your comments below.)

No. 5: Hand Warmers

Warm your hands and leave your fingers free to dial, or just let your manicure show... The Halogen® Diamonds keep your palms and wrists warm and look fashionable with a coat, winter sweater or even in class if your hands get cold. They come in charcoal, teal and oatmeal, and sell for $32 at Nordstrom stores or Nordstrom.com.

No. 4: Mitten-Gloves

We've seen them called "Muvs", "Convertible Gloves" and "Glittens", but whatever you want to call them, you'll flip your lid over their versatility -- they switch from finger-warming mitten to touch-pad friendly gloves as easily as opening a treasure box. We've seen them in cutesy wool animal faces, fun stripes and patterns and our fave hotties -- the Ugg Shearling Flip Mitten. These little cuties are shearling lined and made with leather and sheepskin for serious warmth and fashion all winter long. They carry a hefty price tag at $160 at Nordstrom.com, so they may just end up on your wish list, but a gal can dream, can't she? 

No. 3: Fingerless Gloves

Some celebs love the fingerless gloves that make them look part hobo part boho. Celebrities like MadonnaMissy Elliot, and Paris Hilton love 'em in leather, Betsey Johnson has her twinkly princess fingerless gloves, Ugg has their knit and sheepskin varieties, and you can't swing a purse in Claire's without hitting a pair that has a cute animal, stripes, animal print or One Direction logo on it. We love the Michael Kors wool cable knit version from Zappos that can dress you up or just keep you warm.

No. 2: Arm Warmer

Okay, technically these are arm warmers and not hand warmers, but they are SO cute, we had to include them at #2 in this list! These adorable fuchsia arm warmers from Betsey Johnson (available at Zappos, if you're looking for them) take the bite out of the wind and lend a little rocker style. Think Cindy Lauper -- girls just wanna have fun -- from the '80s and maybe a little Madonna thrown in.

No. 1: iGloves

Game on with these rainbow bright igloves that let you text, check email and play all the Angry Birds you want while still keeping your digits toasty. Says one friend who has them "I totally G-love them!" (Yes, we went there, sorry. But she did say it!) They have the totally unglamorous name on Amazon.com: "Boss Tech Products Cashmere Knit Touchscreen Gloves with Conductive Fingertips", but for $17.95 plus shipping, you could wrap them up and call them Sally and most people wouldn't mind. You don't have to remove your gloves to answer the phone or check in with mom and the cashmere knit is oh-so-soft! We give these gloves 2 i-thumbs up!

What's more important, staying warm or staying in fashion?

  • Fashion will keep me warm!
  • I don't care what I look like as long as I'm warm.
  • It's about finding the balance.
  • What's cold? I get sun all year long!

A perfect friend according to me should always be there for you whenever you need him or her. But they should also guide you to the right path. They should understand you. They should be sweet, understanding, caring and funny. And yes, by caring and understanding I did mean a bff and not a boyfriend. My perfect friend posted on this thread right before me... her username is scarlet177.

I Feel like I should paste this here  Always remember this: Someone out there loves you. May be here online or on the other side of the world but they would care that you died. Now please put down that knife/blade or rope or gun or anything and think "do you want things to get better" or "do you want the chance of things getting better to be eliminated. Now let your scars fade and remember these words "I care"
