I’m not going to sugarcoat it: I hate winter. I’m that girl who gets cold even on chilly summer days, so when fall rolls around, I pretty much resign myself to feeling frozen for months on end. Since my hands, in particular, are constantly cold on a normal basis, a great pair of winter gloves is a major necessity for me.

It feels like I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of gloves to keep my hands warm forever, and it took quite some time to find one. For years, I’d heard that Ugg gloves were the real deal, and were perfect for frigid winters, so five years ago, I splurged and treated myself to a pair.

Ugg Bow Waterproof Sheepskin Gloves, $155, Zappos

The adorable bow detail on the Ugg Bow Waterproof Sheepskin Gloves spoke to me, so I went for a gray pair that I knew would match all my coats. At $155 on Zappos, these gloves aren't cheap, but they're definitely worth it. And five years later, they've held up swimmingly, and they’re just as warm as they were the day I bought them.

Most gloves I’ve owned in the past have only served as a Band-Aid fix to my ongoing problem with cold hands, but these Ugg gloves truly keep them nice and toasty. Thanks to their thick sheepskin lining providing insulation, these gloves help me face what seems like increasingly cold winters with ease.

Since they’ve been so good to me, I’ve admittedly babied these gloves, and avoid wearing them in extreme weather — no blizzards for these babies! Granted, they are waterproof, and they quickly dry off if you touch a wet or snowy car handle while wearing them, but I prefer not to risk testing their snowball-making abilities and ruin a good thing.

The Ugg Bow Waterproof Sheepskin Gloves have limited availability at the moment, but I also have my eyes on the Ugg Slim Genuine Shearling Tech Gloves, available at Nordstrom for $155. They look just as warm as my pair, but are also perfect for touch screens. That sounds like shear genius to me!
