The Best in Holiday 2012 Gift Finds: Wildskins arm warmers are crazy cool fun

The Best in Holiday 2012 Gift Finds is an ongoing series until December that celebrates the practical to the extravagant, the unusual to the commonly needed items of everyday life.

From food, wine and spirits to beauty, clothing and even home goods and appliances, we have been trying and testing and ultimately weeding out the good stuff you should consider for giving this holiday season. Take us shopping with you.


I had no idea there were such a thing as arm warmers – leg warmers yes – but not anything like these American made, whimsical touches that address function (keeping one warm) with avante garde style.


Wildskins were designed to keep your arms warm while exercising, so your extremities do not get cold as your core heats up. With patterns called neon lights, green galaxy, garden goddess and more, this is the perfect under $20 gift to give an athlete in the family.


Perfect for those who loves running, hiking, cycling or walking, these Wildskins stretch from the armpit to the hands and have a thumb hole for a tight fit.


They’re made of stretch nylon spandex and the sleeves cleverly conceal a pocket to stash a key, credit card or your ID. My phone fit in it too.

Wildskins can be adjusted while exercising just by pulling them up to keep warm, or pull down when body temperatures rise.


Their designs are also customizable for schools and groups, so you can really go to town with the look. Fun meets function, super affordable and an extremely useful cool gift to give.
