Slippers Make Great Gifts

Are you trying to think of something unique to give that person that already has everything? Do you know someone who likes cute, creative gifts? Perhaps you are just shopping for a Secret Santa gift for work. Well, look no further! Slippers are not just for Grandma anymore! Slippers are the perfect adorable and inexpensive gift for plenty of folks on your Christmas list.

Not only are slippers a perfectly practical gift, they are also cute. There are so many different types of slippers. You can surely find a pair that is suitable for just about anyone. A great aspect to many slippers is you do not need to know an exact shoe size to purchase them as a Christmas present. Instead, most slippers have general sizes like small, medium, and large. As long as you have a general idea what shoe size the gift recipient wears, you should be good.

What also makes slippers such an ideal Christmas present is how warm they will keep your friend or family member's feet. In these tough economic times, many people barely run their heat. Warm, fuzzy slippers are the perfect gift! Let's explore some of the many slipper options available.

Fuzzy Slippers

When it comes to excellent slippers, you can't beat fuzzy slippers. Fuzzy slippers are a great traditional option. You can buy slippers that are just simply big and fluffy. You could also get slippers that look like some type of fuzzy animal, such as a bunny or a kitty. You even have the option of getting slippers made to look like giant paws. Fuzzy slippers are completely cute, fun, and practical. What a great way to keep someone's feet warm the winter!

Let's not forget fuzzy slippers are a nice gift option for anyone. Children and adults can appreciate warm, fluffy slippers. Although some men might not want to wear fuzzy slippers around company, trust me, most men secretly (or not so secretly) want nice slippers, too.

Boot Slippers

If you really want to give the gift of warmth this Christmas, why not give boot slippers? Boots have been extremely fashionable for a number of winters now. Of course, it only makes sense people who love boots also love boot slippers. Quite simply, boot slippers are slippers that come up much further on a person's legs than traditional slippers. They look like boots, but are intended to be worn indoors since they do not have an actual heel like boots.

Boot slippers are great gifts for women and children that absolutely love wearing boots. They are also perfect for anyone that gets cold easily during the winter. Really warm slippers can be exactly what that person needs.

Flip Flop Slippers

Many people don't like the feel of too much fabric on their feet. Instead, they want to go in the exact opposite direction. For fans of flip flops, there are flip flop slippers. Although these are certainly not the warmest slippers for the winter, these slippers are well-loved by many. This is especially the case for those that live in warmer climates or refuse to wear any type of socks even in the winter.

This particular type of slipper is usually a favorite amongst women. If you know a woman that loves flip flops, these might just be the perfect slippers for her. Even if she can't wear them just yet, once the weather gets warmer, flip flop slippers will be appreciated.

Christmas Slippers

Since you are picking out slippers for a Christmas gift, it would make sense for you to keep with the Christmas theme. Not only can you dazzle fans of Christmas with beautiful Christmas slippers, you can also give Christmas slippers as a hilarious gag gift. Some Christmas slippers are outright tacky. You can often find slippers that light up or have jingle bells on them. You could also opt for something subtle like red and green plaid slippers.

If you are participating in a White Elephant Gift Exchange at work or with family, Christmas slippers are a great gift. If you are attending an Ugly Holiday Sweater Party, you might want to wear some Christmas slippers to complement your look. No one will ever forget your awesome outfit if you have the perfect ugly sweater with horrific Christmas slippers.

Merry Christmas!

    I prefer not wearing slippers when I am at home, too. I'd rather just wear socks. I do wear slippers if I go to the laundry room in my building. My neighbors seem to enjoy my lamb slippers. I can imagine your granddaughter does get upset when you borrow her slippers. Some people get very attached to their footwear. :-) Thanks for your comment!

    I like the Elf slippers. I have no slippers. I prefer to be barefoot or if I must I'll put on warm socks. My granddaughter has those slippers that make the squeek sound, I borrow those sometimes. She gets a bit upset. Haha! Excellent tribute hub to the slippers! :)

    I love slippers....and I'm partial to the fuzzy boot slippers. When I was 20 I used to wear a pair of fuzzy black boot slippers like they were boots, and no one knew the difference! People would snicker, but then the next year fuzzy boots came into fashion...figures, right? LOL. Loved this hub.

    Slippers can be so much fun... oh, and practical. :-) Hahaha... I know what you mean about stinky slippers. Sometimes Tide just can't get rid of major footwear scent issues. Thanks for your comment!

    Jeanie, I happen to love bootie slippers, even living in Florida! I just bought a new pair because my favorites were tattered and my backup just plain ole stunk!

    fpherj48 - I just bought a new pair of slippers. I am a lot like you. I usually just walk around in socks... or especially thick fuzzy socks when it is really cold. I am really trying to wear these new slippers though. I do wear them to the laundry room in my building... perhaps it is enough just to entertain my neighbors. :-) Thanks for your comment!

    shiningirisheyes - That sounds like such a sweet memory. It is so funny the little holiday traditions that each family has. Thank you for sharing!

    Glimmer Twin Fan - Hahaha... I am happy to help! Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks for writing this. It reminded me that my daughter wants a pair for Christmas. I almost forgot. Now I just need to pick out a pair.

    This hub provided such a warmth to my heart and soul. Each year, when I was a little girl, my Mom brought me to pick out a perfect pair of slippers for my Dad. It became a holiday tradition and into my adult years, my Dad would eagerly shake the box, pretending to be in a quandary as to what might be inside.

    Thank you for providing me a wonderful memory on this Thanksgiving morning.
