Christmas Present Ideas for a Lover of Shoes

Here is my second attempt at playing Santa’s little helper in giving you some ideas for presents for a lady who loves shoes and loves to travel.

So without further ado here are some lovely Christmas ideas for the ladies.

When I am packing my bag for a trip away I try and take at least one pretty pair of shoes which can take me from Afternoon Tea to Cocktails and then onto Dinner and these Valentino RockStud Ballet Flats tick all the boxes. I have yet to add these to my Shoe Room however they are so on my Christmas wish list (hint hint).

Finding the perfect pair of boots is very difficult but I will let you into a huge secret, the Ash Jalouse Boots are the perfect boot, so perfect in fact that I own three pairs. I always throw at least one pair into my checked in luggage when I go travelling as they are so versatile and very very comfortable.

The trusty old Havaianas, perfect for every trip away from a Spa weekend right through a City break or Overlanding through Africa. I swear by them and own a rainbow of colours, the perfect stocking filler!

I remember getting told by a lady once that these Ash Genial Wedge Trainers were the best shoes to take travelling as they are super comfortable, not too high and give your bottom a lift – the perfect shoe to prance through an airport in (this was while I was shopping for the Ash Jalouse boots, see two paragraphs up!).

When it comes to ballet flats there is only one company to buy them from – BLOCH! They are the most super comfortable shoes you will ever own and my shoe room is fill of pretty pink Bloch boxes. If you suffer from a wide foot then these shoes are for you. I can walk for miles in these ballet flats, miles!  These Bloch Eloise Ballet flats will definitely add some sparkle on Christmas day.

Finding the perfect casual shoe isn’t easy however Converse have created a leather Converse All Star Shoe which is casual but looks slightly more upmarket unlike the canvas All Star which gives off that scruffy teenager look.
