10 Cold-Weather Handbag Essentials

When the season changes, we turn our thoughts toward the latest fashion and beauty trends to try. And while you may find yourself switching over to a new purse a little more fitting for the upcoming season, you may not realize that you should also change what goes inside that lovely little handbag. Take a look at the top 10 items you need in your bag this fall and winter:

winter handbag essentials

  1. Gloves – Brr! It’s getting cold out there! As soon as you scurry into your car (and out of the cold), you’re likely greeted with an icy cold steering wheel — eek! Having a pair of gloves or mittens in your bag is just what you need to comfortably get from one place to the next.

  2. Hand Moisturizer – Cold, dry weather can leave your skin dry and scaly– especially your hands, which are constantly exposed to the elements and washed repeatedly throughout the day. Have a tube of your favorite hand cream close by to combat your dry skin woes.

  3. Lip Balm – Just like your hands, your lips are at the mercy of winter weather. Toss a moisturizing lip balm in your bag, but be sure it has SPF in it, too. Those rays can still do damage in the cold!

  4. Tissues – Bitter cold temperatures often cause watery eyes and a runny nose. Be prepared with a handy little package of tissues to avoid embarrassing situations.

  5. Hair elastics & bobby pins – Wind and static have you wishing for less hair? It’s always a good idea to have hair ties and bobby pins on hand to pull it away from your face. Winter-induced crisis averted!

  6. Umbrella – Rain and sleet is all too common in the fall and winter months. Don’t get caught in the rain –– reach for your purse-sized umbrella and you’re good to go!

  7. Hand Sanitizer – Flu season is upon us, my friends! When you just can’t make it to the sink, antibacterial gel works wonders! And it comes in an endless number of delicious scents to lift your little spirits.

  8. Aspirin – Dark, dreary weather can sure give a girl a headache! Aspirin is a necessity any time of year — enough said!

  9. Sunglasses – If you’ve ever had to drive in sunshine after a hefty snowfall, you know that the glare of sun on snow is enough to leave you blinded. Throw on some polarized shades to protect those peepers!

  10. Nail file – Not only does the cold, dry weather having damaging effects on your skin and hair, but it also takes a toll on your nails. Dry, brittle nails are highly likely to break and snag. A nail file can be a lifesaver!
