It's barely sweater weather, but that hasn't stopped us from coveting these brilliant beer mittens, hand-knit in Iceland by fiber artist, grandmother of three, and avowed hophead Eygló Guðnadóttir. Made from soft lopi wool, her mittens ($55) will cradle your favorite brew, keeping your beer cold and your hands warm, even in Reykjavik-grade temps. They're available in Boston exclusively at Seaport spot Tango, which is stocking two styles tailor-made for tailgating season: a blue-and-red version for Patriots fans and a black-and-yellow one for Bruins diehards. We may never drink indoors again.

WHERE TO SHOP: Tango, 200 Seaport Blvd, Boston. 857.277.1191 ::
