Ah, Winter. The days are short, the nights are long and there's an ever-present chill in the air. And yet there's a beauty to this time of year, cold as it is. Ice skating, snowball fights and hot cocoa fill every winter's to-do list.

But here at DVICE we're never quite satisfied with the mundane. And so we took a good look at winter's bounty, hoping to discover a few of this season's hidden treasures. Whether you'd rather run out into the cold or sit by the fire, we've dredged up some fun for you. None of which was likely on your grannie's winter activities list.
