Warm, late December vacations under $1000, please, Alex.

My group of six young professionals would like to get out of the Boston freeze for five days or so around New Year's. (We can see it coming and we're not looking forward to it!) We'd like to go someplace tropical, and we'd like to spend less than $1000/pp. Where should we go, where should we stay, where should we eat, and what should we do? [more inside]

Give it your best shot, Frosty

I've never had "winter clothes" before and this year I want to actually be warm and have at least a little sanity to how I deal with being outside. Given the circumstances below, does The Green have any advice? [more inside]

In search of the warmest, waterproof-est gloves in existence

My husband works outdoors in all kinds of weather, and he's mostly fine with it, but the one thing he says he still hasn't found is a good pair of gloves that keep his hands warm and dry, but that are thin enough that he can still do things with his hands (use tools etc). In the dead of winter, when it's 33F and raining, the hands get frozen quickly. [more inside]

Women's coat warm as Canada Goose, but not Canada Goose. And stylish.

I love to walk to and from work, all year long, and this requires a warm coat. My current coat doesn't keep me as reliably toasty as I'd like. I want something as warm as a Canada Goose coat, but I don't want that brand - i want something that every second person (in toronto) isn't already wearing, and that is (if possible) slightly more urban/stylish/flattering, and less sporty/functional looking. In particular, i really don't want a big logo/badge on it, as all Canada Goose coats do. I absolutely want a down-filled coat, though. (I've never seen a wool coat that is anywhere near as warm as down.) Bonus points for something available at a retail store in Toronto (or possibly NYC, which i visit occasionally), and that costs $700 or less.

Help me find hot creamy winter recipes

It's getting towards the depths of winter, ski season has begun, and I find myself wanting to eat nothing but melted cheese, with buckets of hot caramel sauce for dessert. Can you help me find slightly less decadent recipes with the same mouthfeel? [more inside]

Looking for a keep-feet-warm in bed device (to keep on the bed, not just socks)

I want something to put at the foot of my bed to keep feet warm - a throw would work, but something more designed for the purpose perhaps- like a giant "sock" that slips over the end of the comforter that you slip your feet into or something like that. down or equivalent preferable, but post whatever you have!

Compression Shirts: What are they for?

What is (/the original purpose of) a compression shirt? A local store has long-sleeved compression shirts on sale cheap and I've been looking for a cozy-n-toasty shirt for wearing like an undershirt in the winter that isn't longjohn/thermo material.
