As the holidays approach, it’s time to start thinking about all those people in your life who you want to show a little love and appreciation for. Whether it’s letting your mother know you love her, sharing a smile with your best friend, or acknowledging all the hard work your children’s teachers have done this year, foot care gifts are an option that anyone can appreciate!
There are gifts for feet of all sizes, for tired feet, sore feet, and even for those who spend the day on their feet. We have compiled a list of foot care gift ideas for everyone you want to pamper with a little self-care this holiday season. These foot care gift ideas also work for any special occasion year-round – or just because!
The Best Gifts for Feet That Deserve a Break
Let’s face it, feet work hard. Even if your loved ones aren’t running marathons or standing around serving customers all day, their feet are still going to be tired at the end of a long day. And while the holidays are a great time to recognize all the hard work your friends and family put in during the year, foot care gifts are a great option all year long – birthdays, anniversaries, just to say you’re thinking about them — it’s never a bad time to pamper your feet.
Here are a few gifts for the feet in your life that need a little break from daily life.
A Professional Spa Pedicure Certificate
Is there anything more relaxing than a professional pedicure? Sitting back and relaxing while all the stress of the day is massaged away is a powerful self-care routine. And for many, the last few years made it challenging to indulge in a good pedicure. So, gift your loved ones an hour at a spa where they can treat their feet to a little love. They’ll come away with soft, relaxed feet that are ready to hit the ground running again.
Shoe Stretchers (so they never have to squeeze their feet into shoes again)
Sometimes, just because you get a shoe in the right size, doesn’t mean it will fit perfectly right off the bat. This is where a good shoe stretcher comes into play. This foot gift means your friends and family will never have to “break in” a pair of shoes to fit their feet again! Now, every pair of shoes can be the go-to comfortable favorite, no matter how new it is.
Their Very Own Footrest or Foot Hammock
As more and more people work from home, a foot hammock for the desk is a great gift that your friends and family will love. Now they can work in style and comfort, and let their tired feet take a break. A stylish footrest is also a great gift for people who work long hours out of this house so that they can kick back and relax once they arrive home.
The Ultimate DIY Foot Care Gift Basket
Sometimes, the best foot care gift is the one that keeps on giving. Try putting together a basket of all the little luxuries that your loved ones can use to pamper themselves whenever they want. Consider including a Glass Foot File/Callus Remover, high-quality lotions or creams in scents you know they enjoy, nail clippers and files, and even a bottle of quality nail polish in their favorite color — or in clear coat if they prefer not to have color on their toes!
Gifts for Sore Feet from Standing All Day
If your loved ones spend their days standing around on their feet, then you’ll want to get them a gift that really helps relax away the pain.
Epsom Salt Bath Soak to Reduce Inflammation
One great option is an epsom salt soak, which can help relieve tiredness and rejuvenate feet. And if you really want to pamper them, consider including a dedicated foot bath they can use with those salts anywhere they want, rather than just the bathtub. They come in all sizes, from a basic soaker, to models with massage and heating elements for feet gifts that really hit the mark.
A Small Massage Ball or Roller for Some Relief
For those on your list that aren’t a fan of soaking their feet, try a small massage ball or roller instead. These also come in a wide range of sizes and styles, and are designed to be used almost anywhere — they can roll their feet over them while sitting on the couch at the end of the night, or even bring them to work and get some relief during breaks to help keep their feet feeling fresh and pain-free.
Gifts for Foot Pain from High Heels
Let's be honest — there is nothing quite like a good pair of heels to make a person feel confident. But unfortunately, for many, those amazing heels also come with the side effect of foot pain. So treat your high-heel-loving friends to a few gifts that can help ease those pressure points and leave their feet feeling as great as they look.
Foot-Numbing High Heel Spray to Keep Them Standing
A foot-numbing spray actually makes a great gift for foot pain that comes with wearing heels all day long. Contrary to the name, these sprays don’t actually numb the feet — they help to reduce the redness, swelling, and discomfort of wearing heels. For most people, these sprays can make wearing heels far more comfortable for up to six hours, which makes them a great gift for people who have to wear heels at events for long periods of time.
Invisible High Heel Cushions to Absorb Pressure & Reduce Pain
Another great foot care gift idea for those who can’t quit their fashionable shoes are SockShion metatarsal pads, designed to absorb pressure and reduce the pain of wearing high heels for long periods of time. These pads are designed to slide over the ball of your foot, and be invisible once your shoes are in place. As a bonus, they are also antibacterial and help protect the shoe itself, so not only will your loved ones’ feet be pain-free, their favorite pair of heels will last longer as well!
