Gifts for Shoe Lovers
When it comes to buying gifts for shoe lovers, the most obvious answer is, well, shoes. If you’re shoe-loving recipient is anything like me, however, that may not be the best idea: most shoe aficionados have pretty clear ideas about what they like and don’t like, so unless she’s dropped enough hints that you know EXACTLY which shoes to buy, it could be better to err on the side of caution and find a shoe-related gift instead.
That’s why only two of the items on my Gifts for Shoe Lovers list consist of actual shoes: the roll-up ballet flats (number 4), which are designed for shoe emergencies only, and the “design your own shoes” package (number 10), which allow your shoe lover to create the shoes of her dreams – albeit at a price.
The other items on this list range in price from the affordable to the extortionate, so you’ll find everything from shoe-related stocking fillers, to the most shoeper of gift packages (Seriously, £175 for a Jimmy Choo keyring?). If all else fails, and you’re totally out of ideas, I’m a big fan of the “gift card for her favourite shoe store” option. It may be unimaginative, and I know some people frown upon the giving of money/gift card, but ultimately you’re giving the gift of shoe shopping, and what could be better than that?
