I had no clue that there was even such a thing as texting gloves. They have a finger and thumb that you can uncover so it is easy to text. I went shopping at Christmas with my SIL and she was looking for texting gloves for my niece. We found them all over. American Eagle had them and we ended up buy them at Claires. When I did a search with Google there were all kinds of texting gloves to buy. If you are looking for a gift for a teen I think this would be perfect. I have boys and they really don't care about gloves. I bet they are even on sale now since Christmas is over.
