    1. A Carhartt beanie in a bunch of colors and a classic style that'll please everyone from someone riding a tractor to the others posing for the perf #OOTD pic.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    And for the record the person on the tractor would be my dad. Judging from his reaction, this was the best thing I gave him for Christmas.

    Promising review: "I love these Carhartt beanies. They are warm and fashionable and at a great price! They're about 1/2 to 1/3 of the price of many name brand beanies in department stores and I believe they are more comfortable and more stylish than similar ones. They're so inexpensive that you don't have to worry about getting them messed up at work and it's not a big deal of you lose them. You can have multiple ones in other colors! I buy a few new beanies every winter season and always end up going back to the trusted Carhartt. I usually look a bit weird in beanies but this beanie is great for small or large heads." —Caleb

    Price: $12.95+ (available in 27 colors)

    Also check out a version with a visor.

    2. A ponytail-friendly hat for those who swear by the pony but also need a warm head, OK?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this hat! It is perfect. I was worried that the hole would be too big. But it has elastic to keep it small to handle thick or thin hair." —Angie Gravely

    Price: $14.99+ (available in a variety of colors)

    And check out a similar hat with a visor.

    3. A trapper's hat and (removable) face mask that could come in handy for those who actually enjoy being outdoors when it's freezing cold or may have to work in super cold conditions.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    It has a 100% polyester outer shell combined with a inner faux-fur layer for a windproof fit. Covers face, ears, nose, mouth, and even eyebrows.

    Promising review: "This hat is fantastic. I love that there is a strap to hold it on and that there is the face covering that keeps pretty much my entire head warm and comfortable. The face strap is removable and the hat looks fashionable with or without the face covering. The faux-fur lining is soft and cute. Ever since we had a snowpocalypse in Boston in 2015, I am constantly looking over my shoulder for crippling blizzards and hoarding winter gear; our stores literally ran out of gloves that year. This is a must-have item for any Bostonian with PTSD (Post Traumatic Snowstorm Disorder)." —Kennedy K.

    Price: $14.99+ (available in four colors)

    4. A beanie and scarf you can pull up onto your face for extra wind cover. (It may be a little easier to keep track of than a face mask.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The hat is great, warm to the point of 'almost too warm' with its faux-fur lining — and I live and work in Maine. Sometimes I need to take it off whilst walking because I'll work up a sweat and when the 'fur' gets damp it takes a while to dry making the hat uncomfortable. Minor inconvenience. The Neck do-dad is brilliant. No more futzing around with a scarf and figuring out how to keep the thing on in 40 MPH winds. You slip this bad boy over your head and your head-tee is protected, warm and cozy. The price is so low I worried what the quality might be. Needn't have. This set is da bomb." —G P Padillo

    Price: $11.99+ (available in six colors)

    5. A basketweave looker with a bit of slouch and a lot of style in case you're bored to death with your winter gear.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have an XXL size head (7 7/8) and frankly not many hats fit me at all. I can usually forget any hat that is 'one size fits most.' So I was a bit apprehensive about ordering. Well it's not slouchy, but I still love it. The picture will show how it fits a huge head LOL. The lining is SWEET :)" —Ed Osworth

    Price: $8.99+ (available in five colors and more textures)

    6. A pair of warm antlers as a photoshoot prop that'll earn its keep by becoming your kid's go-to accessory.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My little guy looks adorable in this hat. He likes it too. Warm, fits well, and love the Velcro strap under the chin." —Alex

    Price: $13.99 (available in four sizes)

    7. A baseball cap with ear flaps that'll help you brave a lot of sunny but windy days.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    FYI, reviewers say this hat runs a bit big and several (including the pictured reviewer) layer a thin winter hat underneath for a little extra warmth.

    Promising review: "This hat is the answer I've been looking for on days that are sunny and cold. I'm outside on my farm every day and wear a hat all the time. I love the wool. It looks good and blocks the wind. The brim is long and wide and nicely curved. The (fake) fur in the flap is soft and warm. A great hat for the price for the large headed. It isn't adjustable, so not suitable for smaller headed people. Despite the reviews saying it is large, I figured it would fit me since I have such a big head. (My size 7.5 Tilley brimmed hat is a little tight). It wasn't bad, but did slip a little and had to be frequently adjusted. Today I fixed that problem by wearing a thin cycling running hat underneath it. This added warmth and enough size/friction to keep the hat firmly in place. Perfect!" —Leah Mack

    Price: $15.35+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    And check out a similar Carhartt cap.

    8. A skull cap to layer underneath a helmet or run in when it's cold but not extremely cold.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This is available in neon yellow and orange, which can come in handy for runners or hunters who need visibility for safety!

    Promising review: "Bought for MC helmet liner. COMFORTABLE! I use it to cover my bald head when I wear the helmet. It pulls down over my ears for warmth on the cold days. I got a medium sized melon — if that helps — and it's so comfortable that I leave it on after the ride. It's great three-season headwear. Not for the super cold or real hot days. Also doesn't leave much of a mark on my bald head like others that have sharp seams." —dougiefresh

    Price: $10.95 (available in six colors)

    9. A cute ski cap with a visor to keep the sun out of your eyes while you're hitting the slopes or just to help you look chic on the way to the drugstore.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very cute hat just as pictured! Really thick and warm. It also has an extra layer of fleece inside for extra warmth, which was a nice surprise!" —Leilana Hawn-Colvin

    Price: $9.99+ (available in eight colors)

    10. A ladylike wool hat with designs so cute, you'll plan whole outfits around them.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this hat for my Nonna as a Christmas gift. It's beautiful and fits her well. I just love the shape and color, so much that I want one for myself. It came in a larger box so it didn't get destroyed in transit." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $20.99+ (available in nine styles and colors)

    Also check out a similar bowler hat with pretty bow details.

    11. A lightweight ribbed-knit beanie that'll be swell in turning temps rather than the dead of winter. Hello March. (Hey, a girl can hope.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Stylish black beanie hat that matches everything and warm enough for winter days. I wouldn’t spend hours in the freezing cold with it, but fine for waiting at the bus stop, taking a hike in roughly 49 degrees or higher, driving, skateboarding, playing basketball outside in the winter, going to school on a cold New England day. It’s cute. My 12-year-old son likes it. This hat is a little thinner and not AS nicely made as some others, but very acceptable for the price!" —NewEnglandMom

    Price: $14.39+ (available in 24 colors)

    12. A bare-bones toboggan ready to always be along for the ride, no matter why or where you need it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It fits very well. I can be seen at night and during the day because it's about my safety." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.99+ (available in 17 colors)

    13. A wool driving cap with ear flaps you can fold under as a versatile, classic staple.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow, no puffing! Sometimes this type of hat is called an Irish Walking Hat. I don't know about Ireland, but it works in Chicago's blow, cold, and snow, as it warms the ears and head, and stays on when windy. It is very economical too. For the fashion-minded, the hat looks like what an adult would wear. This compared to those stocking ones that gives a wearer a constant squeezed face look, like a cat's wide eye glare when stuck in very close space. Worse, those ridiculous, but festive hats with the ball on top and those strings hanging from its ear flaps; yeah, Ill take you seriously. The hat is practical too. Besides being warm, you don't have to walk down the street for blocks with one hand on top of your hat, knowing that everyone is just waiting for it to blow off your head and wanting to see you run down the street dodging people and cars trying to catch it as it rolls away." —WJA Attiberry

    Price: $22.99+ (available in two sizes)

    14. An all-in-one mask that'll make you look like a badass while you do whatever it is you're doing outdoors in the snow and teeth-chattering gusts.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my second year working in North Dakota on workover rigs. This is by far the best mask I've worn working derricks. In high wind and below-zero temps this mask was awesome. I keep a spare in my bag at all times." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.25+ (available in three colors)

    15. And a sweat-wicking helmet liner for times when you need to worry about other things besides restoring the feeling in your face.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I used this while working at a mine in far north Alaska in January, and my head and face stayed warm when it was -22 degrees." —Photoholic

    Price: $24.99 (available in five colors)

    16. A cable-knit pom hat that may just compete with a breathtaking view. JK. That view still wins. (Sorry.)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Used this hat in very low temperatures and my head stayed warm. I just placed an order for other colors too." —tira fountain

    Price: $10.99+ (available in sets of two and several colors)

    And check out an adorable hat with two poms.

    17. And a kid's pom hat so you and your mini me can rock the same look before your kid gets old enough to be embarrassed by that sort of stuff.

    Amazon

    FYI, this comes in one size that tends to kid kids ages 2–7.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my grandson. He’s 17 months and loves wearing hats. He seems to really like the pom on top and it is so cute on him. I bought to go with his red puffer jacket (and loved the patriotic tone) and I will say the red on the hat is just slightly darker than true red. It works fine but just an FYI." —PuRL68

    Price: $12.99+ (available in a variety of colors)

    18. An adorable hat for kids (and puppies alike) that'll inspire an earful about its cute effects on your bb.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this for our 19-month-old daughter to wear on vacation to Europe in December. She wore it out every single day and it works amazing well. Keeps her snug and warm and she doesn't mind it at all. The extended neck/collar makes it so she can't pull it off with her coat zipped up. Highly recommend!" —Garrison Householder

    Price: $9.99+ (available in 13 colors)

    19. A chunky beanie to keep your noggin toasty while you're thriving, looking cute, staying in your lane, and minding your own business.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This hat was purchased for my 102-year-old aunt to match a new winter jacket. It fits greats and she looks too cute in it! The day she received it, Aunt Dorothy decided to wear it to dinner, despite the complaints of the other patients at her assisted living. She couldn't hear them anyway. This hat is stylish, I'm sure it will keep her warm, fits well, and is a beautiful navy." —maura

    Price: $14.99+ (available in a variety of colors)

    20. An unflappable choice that can guard against painfully cold winter winds on your toddler's poor lil' head.

    Amazon

    FYI, several reviewer suggest sizing up one from the suggested age range.

    Promising review: "This hat is adorable. It's very well made, and super soft. It's not super thick but not really thin like the normal baby caps you get at the store. My 7-month-old seems to like it and it keeps his little ears and bald head warm in the coldness of Idaho winter, so it's perfect." —ginnie collins

    Price: $13.66+ (available in four sizes and eight colors)

    21. A slouchy skull cap with a warm lining for an effect that'll make it look like you're wearing it for fun, even if you require some major ear coverage in this weather.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Great hat! The sizing is great. I have a big head and don’t feel like it is being over stretched to get on, very flexible. It is as long as they say, so there is room for it to flop over. The inside is fuzzy, which adds much warmth. Perfect for cold days, however I don’t wear it inside because it is too warm for that. Not a problem for me. I got the blue and gray and it is just what it looks like in pictures. I love it and may buy an additional one to match my other coat." —Empty Nest Dad

    Price: two for $19.99+ (available in several colors and also as a single hat)

    22. A canvas trooper hat in a range of designs that'll help you cop Cousin Eddie's look. But make it fashion.

    Amazon

    Cousin Eddie but make it fashion is always a good idea. If I had to drain an RV's sewage tank on my vacation, I'd do it in a robe too.

    Promising review: "Got this for my nephew for Christmas. We love cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation, so I got him this hat like Cousin Eddie wears in the movie. He LOVED it. Can't be the price and it's pretty decent quality." —J. Clark

    Price: $14.95+ (available in 28 designs)

    Also check out another trooper hat with some faux-suede detailing.

    Now that you have your hat, it's time to go sledding.
