I live in "The North" as the motorway signs label us (maybe they should add "there be dragons"!). I spend a fair amount of time outdoors, I garden late into the season and the dogs need walking whatever the weather. Therefore I spend a lot of time thinking about keeping warm and have quite a collection of hats, gloves and scarves.
Accessories are great gifts, usually one size fits all and because they are small items you can choose luxurious materials. You may not be able to afford a cashmere sweater for your best friend - but a pair of mitts may well be within your budget.
Here's a lovely selection of winter warmers, all handmade by independent crafters and designers here in the UK.
And if you fancy having a go at making something yourself please have a look at my own Etsy shop Garden Knits for some simple knitting patterns for very wearable accessories.
