glovesAre you looking for a way to keep those hands warm while you frolic in the snow with your family? We’ve got you covered. As you know, winter accessories have been on sale for some time. When it comes to gloves, however, cheaper isn’t always better. Unless you want to wear yours for just one season, you’ll need to spend more than a few dollars on them. If you want to be able to use your touchscreen devices, expect to pay a little more for convertible or touchscreen-style gloves. Here are three stylish choices for under $20.

The Grandoe Suede Texting Gloves from Kohl’s are my favorite in the group. They come in four different sizes (small, medium, large and extra-large) and four different colors (brown, walnut, black and red). The lining is infused with aloe to soften your hands while you wear them. Regularly $50, you can now get them for only $19.99. Unlike other styles, the touch screen technology in these gloves is invisible, meaning there’s no visible change in color or texture. You can wear these beautiful gloves year after year.

If you want an option that allows you to free your fingers for typing on a keyboard, reading a book or just about anything else, you can’t go wrong with the Birdseye Pop Convertible Glove from Urban Outfitters. Although there are two color options, the only thing that changes is the pop of color at the tip – blue or orange are your options. Otherwise, the gloves are black with Birdseye stitching. They’re $19 and make a great gift or stocking stuffer for teens.

For traditional woven knit gloves, the AEO Ribbed Glove from American Eagle is a hit. These gloves come in four colors: pink, charcoal, grey and cream. With a long ribbed cuff and soft, woven knit style, they look just like the gloves you’ve worn since childhood. They have a textured thumb and index fingerprint to allow you to use your touchscreen devices with ease. Right now, they’re $11.97 so snag several pairs for yourself and friends!

When looking for gloves that allow you to use your mobile devices, look for gloves with fingertips that are a different color or texture than the rest of the glove, as this often indicates built-in touchscreen technology. Convertible gloves, like the ones listed above, are also excellent options that allow you to do more than touch, tap and text.
