Today TravelSmith announced that their Touch Sensor Pocket Gloves will be featured in the 2015 edition of "Oprah's Favorite Things," an annual coveted list of the season's hottest gift items. This marks the first time TravelSmith has been chosen to be a part of the “Oprah's Favorite Things” holiday gift guide.

The team at O, The Oprah Magazine loves the gloves, calling them, “The next best thing to weatherproof hands: microfleece gloves, available in ten colors, with touch-sensor patches (so you can still swipe) and a zippered pocket to hold cash. Your go-to for quick errands.”

A popular brand name among seasoned travelers, TravelSmith is becoming better known among fashion consumers. “As a trusted retailer in the travel space, our customers look to us for products that make travel as convenient, stress-free and enjoyable as possible,” said Michael Alexin, president of TravelSmith. “This recognition by the Oprah team will introduce our brand to fashion consumers who may not have been aware of the special travel features inherent in each of our products. We thank Oprah and her team, and are thrilled to be on board.”

The gloves provide fashionable and functional protection from winter weather. They feature cozy microfleece and sensored fingertip pads that enable touch-screen use without taking the gloves off. A small zippered pocket makes this winter accessory truly unique. The compartment is perfect for credit cards, keys, lip balm or extra cash. The gloves are available in a multitude of colors, including Black, Black/Red, Camel, Charcoal, Cobalt, Green, Holly, Orange, Peacock, Pink, Plum and Red.

Since 2002, "Oprah's Favorite Things" has included products from high-quality luxury brands to small, local businesses, all selected by Oprah Winfrey herself. As the most anticipated list of the holiday season, both consumers and brands alike look forward to seeing which items have been chosen.

The Touch Sensor Pocket Gloves are available on the TravelSmith website,, as well as a first of its kind, “Oprah's Favorite Things” specialty shop on Amazon, at
