Gloves are an essential part of any winter wardrobe and with wintry days now upon us there is no better time, or better gift, to purchase this Christmas for friends or family.

You'll welcome the warmth on a chilly day of the softest faux fur trim gloves £20, available in camel and chocolate from Dents or a pair of John Lewis sheepskin handsewn mittens (£18).

Household tasks can be hell but a pair of "little devil" gloves might make them seem like less of a chore over the Christmas period. A black rubber pair with red marabou trim and decorated with horns and tails will add a wicked spark to any kitchen sink (£12.50 from John Lewis).

For something for the lady who is a follower of fashion, you won't go wrong if you opt for a pair of soft luxurious leather gloves. Gloves have made a comeback in recent months and a pair of colourful softest nappe, 100% silk lined leather gloves, will add a bright note to a dreary winter day, as well as a fashionable, finishing touch to any outfit. Silk lined leather gloves are available in a choice of colours from John Lewis (£35.00). Dents gloves are also available in the softest leather in the new look that comes half way up to the elbow. This season the colour options include berry, black, conifer, conker, fuchsia, indigo and violet, (£49 from all leading department stores and fashion boutiques).

If you are in the party mood, ladies, don't forget to treat yourself when you are out shopping. Even when warm inside at the Christmas party, evening gloves will add a little Hepburn elegance to any outfit. You'll find a huge selection of great value evening gloves in velvet, lace and satin from John Lewis (from only £5).

For the gardeners among us, a fine pair of ladies gardening gloves in high quality tan leather with a suede palm patch will be well received. (Sizes 7-8 £12.95 John Lewis).

For the gents, look out for a pair of snug fit leather driving gloves with elastic and press stud at the wrist, with punched airholes in the fingers and textured grip (John Lewis £35).

Alternatively, you'll really sock it to them with a paid of durable, genuine leather sparring gloves (£29.95) that will provide years of hard-hitting satisfaction. For use at home, in the gym or even in the ring, their anatomical design and pre-moulded foam inserts provide superior comfort, while the Velcro wrist strap provides both a snug fit and enables them to be taken on and off quickly. Choose from bantamweight (340g) or welterweight (397g) sizes. Both from John Lewis.

Whether one is a fan of the Queen and wouldn't leave home without them, mitten mad or keen to road test a pair of driving gloves, you'll find a style to suit all this Christmas.
