We know, we know… we’re a little biased.
Here at Footwear News, we have no qualms admitting to our die-hard, deep-rooted love of shoes. And while we tend to think they make the perfect gift for every occasion, there are a few reasons why shoes are particularly ideal for Valentine’s Day gifting.
Read on as we make our case.
Practical & Luxurious
Who says you have to choose between pragmatism and indulgence? Many guys and gals shopping for their significant others this Valentine’s Day will find themselves trying to choose between a useful, practical gift (think: smoothie blender) and an over-the-top splurge (think: diamond earrings).
With shoes, you can do both. While a pair of black, Christian Louboutin pumps is a luxurious gift, it’s also a practical one since those pumps are likely to become a staple in your favorite girl’s wardrobe and she’ll wear them over and over again. The same can be said of a pair of classic Timberland boots.
Solves The “What To Wear Tonight” Dilemma
The second biggest question on Valentine’s Day — after “How will we celebrate?” — is “What will we wear?”
Well, if a pair of snazzy heels, pumps, flats, loafers or moccasin drivers show up on your guy or girl’s doorsteps on Valentine’s Day morning, the problem is solved.
And, since everyone dresses from the feet up (or is that just us?), having the right shoes fixes any potential wardrobe crises.
The Option To Match
Maybe we’re being a bit mushy here but few things are cuter than a couple whose wardrobe is complementary. If you decide to give your sweetheart a pair of shoes this Valentine’s Day, you have the option to pick up something that matches a pair of your own favorite kicks or heels.
What’s even better? You can start from scratch and buy new, matching pairs for both of you. Because, sometimes you just need an excuse to do a little self-indulgence.
