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!

YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
