10 Surefire Holiday Gift Ideas

Warm Winter Essentials

Discounters have gotten smart about stocking up on warm winter essentials and bargain hunters are more educated than ever regarding what they want - or want to give to others - for surviving the winter temperatures. Because of this trend, you might want to keep space on your holiday shopping list for one of these cold-weather bargains.

  • Cashmere sweaters, scarves and gloves: they're so much less expensive than they used to be.
  • Comfortable wraps: they're not just for dressing up anymore. In fact, they're a great accessory to keep at the office for those cold mornings or late evenings.
  • Leather gloves: leather is windproof and warm, yet you can still have full flexibility with your hands when wearing them.
  • Disposable hand and feet warmers: keep them in your car in case you break down or in your purse for that unexpected hike in the woods.
  • Hats: dress them up or down, wear them when it's snowing or raining, but best of all, keep your body temperature regulated by keeping your head warm.
