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!

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
