In the winter extra items liks hats, scarves, mittens and gloves can pile up quickly or get left around the house. I use baskets (mine are wicker; wire mesh would work as well) for each type of item. I just set the baskets on the floor next to the boots. As family members come in the house they can put their extra items in the appropriate baskets. Any random gloves or hats that end up in the kitchen, in the car, or on the porch can easily be tossed in the appropriate basket. This is great for matching up missing gloves and mittens! Although you could use boxes instead of baskets, the wicker or wire mesh let air get in so any items that are still damp hopefully will dry instead of mold!
