Holiday Gift Ideas 2012!

Tis the Season to start shopping for those holiday gifts, and you can always find a lot of great ideas at Here are a few items I’m putting on my gift list:

UGG boots. These never fail to please in my family, and UGG has some great new models and colors this season. Maybe I can drop enough hints that someone will get ME a pair of the UGG Bailey Button minis? I need some new sheepskin boots and love the way these little boots feel. They are the perfect way for me to keep my feet warm and look fantastic with jeans. They are available in a variety of colors; can I put this on MY holiday list?

Slippers. Everyone loves slippers during the cold weather, and I really love the new slippers that have just arrived from Acorn. I bet that my mother would love the Crosslander Moc, which has a wool upper, Sherpa fleece lining, and a rubber outsole so that she can go out and get the newspaper and still have her feet stay warm and dry. I love to see slippers that actually have arch support, and this one will make her feel great!

Gilden Tree products. When your feet need a little pampering, Gilden tree lotions and creams can make them feel like they’re totally spoiled! I particularly like the Healing Foot Cream; it’s an aloe-based cream with shea butter. I love how it soaks into your skin and doesn’t feel greasy. This is a great product for those who love to pamper their feet, and those who OUGHT to pamper their feet!

Socks. Now don’t assume that a sock gift is the equivalent of giving a lump of coal in the stocking; there are a wide variety of socks available for a variety of purposes! I like to stock up on athletic socks, since they take a beating and are critical for when you’re active and require socks with good breathability and comfort. Thorlo makes some excellent socks for this purpose. I also love the fun, patterned socks from K.Bell and Hot Sox. These socks can help reflect your mood or interests! And you can never have too many dress socks, like those from Monarch. I love the softness and variety of colors of those socks.

Wallets. I love giving a wallet as a gift because a lot of people never quite remember to replace their wallets before they wear out! Hobo International makes some gorgeous leather wallets. I particularly like the Iris, which contains 12 credit card slots, an ID window, and two bill pockets. It’s a classic, elegant style that anyone is sure to love.

For the person who is going on vacation to a warm climate, don’t forget a good pair of flip flops. My favorite is the Orthaheel Tide. Available in a bunch of beautiful colors, this may well be the most comfortable flip flop anyone could possibly own. I lived in my pair this past summer and would LOVE to go to a warm place so that I could wear them soon. Your friends and family will love that you’ve thought about their foot comfort for their travels!

This is only a small assortment of what’s available for the holidays from Footwear etc. Make up that shopping list and place an order soon!
