Have you heard of touch gloves? They are a fairly new hot item for me. Touch gloves are basically gloves that you can wear with either a hole in the pointer finger or a rubberized tip of the pointer finger. The goal is to help someone with a smart phone to text or surf the net while still keeping the rest of their hands warm. These gloves are better than regular gloves, because they don’t slip on the screen of the phone and you don’t have to take your gloves off to type.
When I first saw these at Target a few months ago, I literally *laughed-out-loud*. How obsessed is our culture with connection that we can’t even wait to get inside before we respond to a text?! I mean if you’re wearing gloves in the first place then it is obviously cold outside so you’re not going to be hanging out there for too long anyways. Our desire for connection is hilarious to me. However, I got a pair of these gloves for Christmas. I have to say, that as much as I laughed at these in the store, I laughed soooo much more when I opened the gift. Mine look like mittens, and there is a flap that uncovers my fingers and the flap buttons on the top of my hand.
All that being said, I used my gloves for the first time on Monday.
They are fabulously useful and a definite necessary phone accessory (apparently I am way more obsessed with my phone than I initially thought- so guilty). Not that I need another pair, but here are 2 of my favorites.
Aren’t they so cute. Do you have a pair of touch gloves? Don’t you want a pair now?
