Gifts for Shoe Lovers – The Ultimate 2021 Gift Guide

If you’re scrounging around trying to find the best stocking stuffers or gifts for shoe lovers (and foot-health inclined friends!) look no further.

This shoe blog has you covered with some shoe-centric nuggets of joy to gift shoe lovers for the holidays, birthdays or just because! I’ve rounded up what I believe are some of the top, unique gifts for shoe lovers (most of which I own & love, so I know they’re great ;).  And most importantly, almost all items are under $20 😉

2021 Gifts for Shoe Lovers

Short on time? Shop gift items directly, below:

1. Burt’s Bees Mani-Pedi Set

No guides of gift ideas for shoe lovers is complete without some foot care in the mix! Because if high heels are your thing, or you stand on your feet all day, it’s important to pamper your soles. So why not gift someone with a little foot care from Burt’s Bees? 

I love all of their products & use them regularly, especially their coconut-infused natural foot cream. But it’s so much cuter for someone to unwrap the perfect kit that includes foot lotion, hydrating hand cream, lemon butter cuticle cream & a pumice foot brush, right? 

Also comes in a sampler gift pack with mini versions of each product! They also have more holiday kits for the face, body & more.

2. Pombons Pom Pom Shoe Clips

Total self promotion here, but it’s hard to deny that Pombons shoe clips make great gifts (and fun holiday shoes too)! This is my own little product, so I’m kind of biased, when I say this is a particularly unique gift for shoe lovers 😉

My Pombons come in a set of 6 clippable pom poms nestled into a cute little box. You can also customize your shoe clip set and choose from 15 different colors. That way, you can make put together an even more meaningful a gift.

All that’s missing? A bow! Read more about shoe clips here and shop a customizable box! Just email me at shoetease(at) if you’d like to order and I you can easily pay with PayPal!

3. I Can Make Shoes – The Book

Gifts for Shoe Lovers - Shoe Making Book

The perfect gift for your crafty DIY’ing shoe loving friends! I Can Make Shoes is an online & on location shoe making school (courses in London & Milan) that has been running for 10 years.

Made specifically for beginners, this shoe making book’s colorful pages are filled with step-by-step tutorials to learn how to make a variety of different shoe types.

You can order the book direct from their website and shop for shoe-crafting materials on their Etsy Shop

4. Sheepskin Slippers

It wasn’t until I slipped my feet into these Australian sheepskin lined slippers that I found out just how warm fuzzy, natural materials can keep your feet! And I have cold ceramic tiles at home, so I would know 😉

With their stylish designs, cosy wooly interior, soft EVA midsole & flexible outsole, you’ll never want to take your tootsies out of these slippers!

I routinely almost leave home with them on, ha. EMU Australia‘s  slippers also come in a variety of colours! UGG also makes some great ones too.

5. Shoe Inserts To Resize Shoes

One of the most popular shoe accessories on ShoeTease are patent-pending Sizers shoe inserts. And not your usual shoe inserts these are not, filling up the extra space in the tip of your shoes, so you can make shoes smaller.

With 3 sizes in their multipack & their fun packaging, why not give the gift that is both original and practical? These only work in closed-toe shoes, so if you’re looking for solutions for other shoe types, check out more on my post about shoe inserts for shoes that are too big.

Shop sizers and similar inserts, below:

6. Keysocks No-Show Socks

A holiday gift guide that includes socks? Oh, yes! If you’re going to gift anyone with socks this holiday season, give them Keysocks. Trust me, she’ll love them!

Keysocks are not your average socks, because they’re a type of no show socks that you can hide under your pants and shoes. Essentially you’ll look like you’re not actually wearing socks, but are provided with all the cosy comforts of having them on! T

They’re sold in a variety of standard and fun colors, as well as in sets.

7. Boot Rescue Shoe Wipes

Keep your boots looking spiffy with a Canadian-based Boot Rescue. They’re extra special because they make all-natural range of wipes for any type of footwear: fabric, leather, rubber, even fragile suede.  

Great little products to keep in your purse to salvage your shoes & boots from salt stains & more.

8.  Boot Hangers & Organizers

Hanging Boot Organizer with Boot Hangers

This might look a little weird at first, but Boottique’s boot hanging system is a great way to organize your shoe closet (and relieve your floors from scattered boots!). With their sturdy boot clips that come in many grips & lengths, you can easily customize your boot rack as convenient for you.

9. Sassy Strapps

If fluffy pom pom shoe clips aren’t for you, why not try another shoe accessory to give your heels flare? Sassy Strapps not only add a little je-ne-sais quoi to your heels & flats, but they also make a decorative statement while holding your shoes in place.

Yep, these straps also literally strap you into your shoes! From pearly to studded to rhinestone embellished straps, there’s no lack of choice with this cute holiday gift idea!

10. Shoe Gift Cards

From Nordstrom to Net-a-Porter, the gift card giving is endless with all the amazing retailers out there! If your friend likes simple, but sophisticated styles, Stuart Weitzman is a great contender.

And if she likes fashionable style & function (at a more affordable price-point) Sam Edelman can’t be beat. 

And that wraps up my 2020 gift guide for shoe lover, which included some of my favorite picks to help maintain, adorn, store or pay homage to shoes! With most items under $20, you’ll find practical, fun & quirky gifts for the shoe aficionado, that you can really gift to anyone!

And by “anyone”, I mean yourself 😉 Best of all, most of these savvy gifts won’t break the bank & are gifts that keep on giving.
