For shoe-lovers like me, receiving a pair of shoes as gift is a very personal act of thought. You got to know my size, and of course, my taste. But most importantly, you got to know which shoes are still missing in my closet, and which ones are sure to be worn.
That´s probably the reason why shoes are not commonly gifted on holidays such as Christmas and New Year. But if you know that the person you care about is a shoeholic, there´s obviously no other gift that can make her elated. That said, here are my tips on what shoes to gift.
1. Dress Pump

No matter how many dress pumps she has, another pair of dress pumps will always have a room in her shoe closet. Why? Because whenever she dresses up for parties, these are the key players. If you want your gift to always see the limelight, pick a black with standout accents.
2. Ballet Flat

It can be intimidating to choose for shoes to give to a stylish person. You wonder if it´s too much or too little. My tip? You will never go wrong with a pair of pointed-toe, skimmer ballet flats. She can wear it with anything – from dresses to jeans and cropped pants. And it´s universally chic.
3. Sequined Dress Pump

It´s in black so it´s never too loud. A bit bold, yes, but never too loud.
4. Trendy Booties

In cold seasons, flat boots are a must. But if you want to gift her some boots that she will surely treasure, make it a tall, heeled dress boot. When she´s going out for dinner or when she attends a party on a cold winter night, she won´t forget to thank you for your gift.
