    8. These warm woollen convertible mitten-gloves.

    Amazon / Via

    It's a mitten! It's a glove! Why choose one when you can have both? Reviewers love the non-slip patch on the palm and the Velcro fasteners that holds the mitten part in place. The gloves are lined with fleece and are particularly useful for activities like driving, walking the dog, or popping off a quick text message, when you may find yourself in need of finger dexterity but then want to fully cover your hands afterwards. Heads up: customers reported some initial shedding from the wool.
