It’s that time of year again, Fashionistas! A time for spending time with your loved ones and really enjoying all that the season has to offer. If you are like me, then you love seeing the look on someone’s face when you give him or her that perfect gift that you thought so hard about. With that in mind, below are some great gift giving ideas for that shoe lover on your list.
The Gift Certificate: Now I know that people think this is a thoughtless and impersonal gift, but in all honesty, I would rather give the person the opportunity to pick out shoes that they really love, rather than picking out something that they may never wear. Let’s face it; there is nothing better than shopping for shoes in your favourite shoe store when it doesn’t cost you a thing.
Pedicure at the Spa: This is a gift that is always welcomed. Give that special shoe lover in your life the gift of pampering herself. I know that I feel absolutely wonderful after a pedicure, all my troubles and stresses just melt away the second I sit in that massage chair and put my feet into that warm, bubbly water. That special person could also probably use a facial and a massage and a manicure – hmmm – you probably should make it a whole day at the spa (you’re welcome ladies).
Jewelry: Good things come in small packages, and I love those little packages. If you have someone on your list that is crazy about shoes and jewelry, then the gift of shoe earrings couldn’t be more perfect. These are cute and fun; and best of all they are shoe shaped.
Novelty Shoe Gifts: There are so many great, kitchy novelty shoe gifts and gadgets out there. Everything from high heel retro phones, to USB sticks in the shape of shoes. Whatever your shoe lover’s taste, there is something out there for them. Below are just a couple of fun things I found.
The high heel cake lifter.
The stiletto chair.
The high heel phone.
USB Sticks in the shape of high heel boots.
Tana® Products Package: One of the greatest gifts is the gift of care for those amazing shoes in our shoe lover’s collection. So, of course, I recommend grabbing a protector for every fabric type for that special person. Available in stores are the Tana® Leather Patent Care Aerosol and the Tana® Suede & Nubuck Protector. Don’t forget to buy a shoe cleaner too. Tana® offers cleaners such as the Tana® Leather Cleaning Lotion, Tana® Suede & Nubuck Cleaning Block, and last but not least, a Tana® Sport Cleaner for taking care of those sports shoes she will be wearing as part of her New Year’s Resolution. To really be creative when packaging these great products, why not take an old shoebox and decorate it. Then stand all the products up inside, wrap some pretty coloured cellophane around it, and finish it off with a big bow, and, voila! You have a great gift for that special someone and their special shoes.
Happy Holidays to all of you, and a very happy New Year!
