The best gift ideas for shoe lovers: more shoes, right? Always. But if you like to think outside the (shoe) box, if you want to surprise your sneaker fan or your high heel aficionado, check out these gift ideas for shoe lovers of all kinds, from innovative no-show socks to space-saving storage solutions.
Gift Ideas for Shoe Lovers
You never know when you might need the right gift for your shoe lover. These gift ideas would make any occasion a foot fête, even those times when you just want to show your shoe guru a little love and appreciation!
A shoe rack to display all her prized shoe possessions
The biggest problem for shoe lovers: you can only wear one pair at a time. Solve that dilemma with a display rack or case designed especially to feature footwear. They may not be wearing those Swarovski crystal-studded slingbacks to the market, but they can admire them every day on their own individual floating shelves in their bedroom. For a DIY route, you can turn that Ikea bookcase into shoe heaven with some custom wallpaper on the back panels—now their shoe habit is a decorative design feature!
A built-in closet upgrade
If you’re looking for a truly unforgettable gift idea for shoe lovers: a surprise closet makeover with custom, built-in shelving for their entire shoe wardrobe! Let someone try and top that.
The newest pair they’ve been eyeing lately
If you decide on a gift of shoes, you can go for a glam pair your shoe lover has been coveting, or look for a new brand that suits their style. Turn back time with some Retro Air Jordans. For a completely original gift for your sneaker lover, customize their Chuck Taylors so they’ll have the one and only pair.
Some luxurious slippers for lounging around the house
Your footwear gifts don’t have to be all fashion and no function! Looking for a gift for your comfort-loving shoe fan? Get them some new pillowy-soft slides or slippers to wear around the house.
A no-show sock variety bundle for their variety of shoes
Once you have those perfect pumps or those one-of-a-kind Chucks, you need to include the perfect accessory – no show socks. Nobody wants a sneaky bit of sock peeking from their red suede stilettos, and no one appreciates when their sneakers acquire that all-too-familiar sweaty foot funk.
Shoe lovers know it takes exactly the right cut and material to craft a perfectly hidden, sweat-proof no-show. Every shoe lover owns socks that do peek through—or worse, the socks that do the dreaded heel-slip maneuver until they have scrunched into a painful knot under your foot!
If you want your shoe lover gift to be truly unforgettable, find the right no-show from the get-go. Thankfully, Sheec’s sock starter kit comes with a variety of seven perfectly engineered no-shows for every shoe, from casual sneakers and mules to dressy loafers and heels!
Sheec Socks Starter Bundle
Gifts for Sneaker Lovers
Sneaker collectors are often on a specific mission to find their “holy grail” pair. But you can still find perfect gifts for sneaker lovers that aren’t the actual sneakers (I mean, have you seen how much the latest Yeezys went for?).
Some shoe cleaner to revitalize their well-loved pairs
Even if some collectors disagree, the point of sneakers is to wear them…but then they get dirty. That’s why cleaning kits make wonderful gifts for sneaker lovers! Canvas, leather, suede: these kits come in all material variations. From cloths and cleaning brushes to waterproofing and shining products—sneaker care and maintenance offers a world of gift ideas for shoe lovers. And once those shoes are clean, there are more gifts for keeping them that way, like travel bags or storage boxes.
Art featuring their favorite brand
Of all shoe collectors, sneaker mavens love to show off their shoes. Add to your sneaker lover’s display with an art print or photo of their favorite brand. Whether it’s a cool print of paint-splattered Vans on canvas or a dramatic black and white photo of Moschino two-tones, images of iconic sneakers make a great gift for shoe lovers.
No-show socks for their favorite sneakers
Don’t forget sneakers need the perfect socks. Sheec’s casual socks come in so many varieties, your shoe lover will be always be covered, from Converse high tops to slide-on sneaker mules.
Gifts for High Heel Shoe Lovers
High Heel lovers are here for the drama, the glamor, and everything in between. Let’s explore some ideas for these footwear fashionistas!
A DIY pedicure set
Pedicures are a must because their feet can take a beating in those high heels! It’s always a good time for the gift of foot care. High-heel wearers will love a home pedicure kit, especially with tools to make it easier to keep their feet in shape for heels.
Whether she’s into strappy sandals or thigh-high boots, she’s going to need the best file – preferably a durable glass one designed for foot care. Include Sheec’s Glass Foot File Combo in a basket with a foot peel mask, foot lotion, and a chic polish or set of nail wraps to create the ultimate DIY pedi basket!
A high fashion book & decor to her high heel display
High heels have been around since the 15th century. Give your high-heel-loving queen a piece of that history with a coffee table book, or even some high-heel figurines from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection.
Invisible high heel cushions to keep them comfortable
As long as we’ve been wearing high heels, we’ve been trying to make them less painful! Gift your high heel shoe lover with some relief: Sheec’s Sockshion metatarsal pads protect the balls of the feet from the stress and pressure that comes from high heel wear. With these babies in, she can take on whatever the day brings in style and comfort.
