6 Presents You Can Give the Shoe Lover in Your Life — Without Buying Shoes

Picking out the perfect pair of shoes is difficult enough when you’re shopping for yourself — the task becomes nearly impossible when it’s for another person.

Chances are, you know a few shoe lovers in your life, whether they be close friends or work colleagues. That said, there can be many reasons why you wouldn’t want to give even the most avid shoe fan a new pairs of kicks. Size, price and the particulars of a person’s style are just a few of the things you’d need to consider.

Here are six ideas for some shoe-themed gifts any shoe connoisseur would still be very happy to receive.
