Gift-giving doesn’t have to be hard, especially if the recipient is a shoe-holic! A love of shoes is universal, and that’s why there’s so many options for shoe-themed gifts. Pick one of these fun gift options for your favorite shoe lover this Christmas and watch their face light up brighter than Rudolph’s nose.
1. Custom Orthotics
Give the gift of comfort this year: if your shoe lover experiences sore feet, sore knees, or back pain, then they’ll love a custom pair of orthotics. You can get gift cards at most podiatrists if you request one, and this way they definitely won’t be tempted to re-gift this year’s present from you! Orthotics are so accommodating these days that you can get thick soles made for running shoes and even thin ones that you can slide into your heels for all-day support.
2. Holiday Flats
Who said flats were just for summer? Give your bestie a pair of dazzling and festive flats that sparkle like your Christmas tree, and she’ll be skipping her way to every holiday party in style. Plus, they’re way comfier than trying to balance on uncomfortable heels all night, especially if your eggnog is of the spiked variety…
3. Microwavable Booties
If your gal pal loves to squish her poor feet into sky-high stilettos all day, then blow her mind this Christmas with a pair of microwaveable booties. You can warm these bad boys up in the microwave to soothe achy feet and keep them toasty for hours. There’s nothing quite like kicking off your shoes and sliding these booties on—your pal might never take them off again.
4. Shoe Accessories
For the friend that can never have enough shoes, help double her shoe collection with super cute shoe accessories, which is basically jewellery that you can use to customize your shoes for a unique look every time. There are jewelled clips, rings, bows, ribbons, chains—you can mix, match, bedazzle and bejewel your way into different shoes every single day.
5. Heel Slip Covers
Another way to expand your friend’s shoe collection is with heel slip covers, which cover your heel with a different pattern or color. They’re so fun to use, and you can’t even notice that it’s not the actual material of your shoe. You can turn one pair of plain black pumps into 20 different shoes without sacrificing your closet space and without blowing the budget (these slips are priced at just $19.99 a pair).
6. Wine Bottle Holder
For the friend that loves her wine and her shoes, combine them into the best gift she’ll ever receive with these spunky wine bottle holders shaped like heels. She’ll get a good laugh out of it and it’ll be a fun way to spice up girls’ nights and cocktail parties.
7. Foldable Flats
There’s no easier way to ruin a night out than sore, achy feet; with flats that fold up into your purse, the party never has to end. Your shoe-loving friend will never again have to choose between great shoes and her ability to walk with these compact and comfy ballet flats.
