The holiday season is a time for all kinds of fabulous things. From family gatherings, to office parties, to shopping and then of course eating, to maybe a little more shopping to curb all that eating … and while fun and festive, all of these can put quite a strain on your ankles, arches and toes! So why not treat your deserving feet (or those of your loved ones) this season with something decadent from our exclusive holiday gift shop. Here are three of my favorites for that special someone or even for you.

For a cozy evening in

I just love UGG Australia’s Dakota Slipper for its comfort, bright color and versatility. There’s nothing better than snuggling up next to a warm fire on a casual evening at home while looking trendy at the same time. They’re also perfect for walking the dog on a brisk winter morning, picking up the kids after school, or even heading out for a cup of coffee with the girls before a day of splurging at the mall. Moccasins are here to stay, and for two good reasons: style and comfort. Who ever said you can’t be trendy, cozy and warm all at the same time!? Not this girl.

For painting the town red


Anyi Lu’s Stella Pump in silver glitter calf can spice up any holiday outfit with its sheen, high rise heel and eye catching detail. Paired with a thigh skimming miniskirt or cuffed black skinny jeans, these peep-toe platform pumps casually exude “Here I am” without screaming “Look at me!” All I have to do is add a festive sweater and a sparkly set of bangles, and my outfit is complete. Sophisticated, elegant and oh-so-classy, they’re one of those pairs that I just can’t overlook this season. (Plus they give me an excuse to treat myself to a pedi before a night out with friends!)

For the man in your life

A pair of Quisp 5 Lace-Ups by Santoni is perfect for the man with ruggedly chic taste and a desire for comfortable dress shoes. Add them to faded jeans, tailored slacks or a pair of classic cords to casually (and comfortably) dress up any outfit – either way, I find them subtle, classy and above all, sexy. If your man’s shopping, be sure to get your hands on a pair of Santoni lace-ups. He’ll be the talk of the town and have you to thank for it.
