Are you ready for the holidays? Usually when someone asks me during the first week of November I respond with a resounding “No!” and then listen to them tell me how they are already done their shopping. The good news for me is that I decided early on that this year was going to be different, and I’m happy to say that I am more than half way done my holiday shopping!
This is a pretty big deal for a procrastinator such as myself, but I decided this year I wanted to ease a bit of the stress off of me during the holidays and get my shopping done sooner.
I started with the most difficult of people – my husband. I find that my husband is VERY difficult to buy for. He claims he’s easy, but he can’t seem to come up with any ideas when I ask what he would like.
The one great idea I had was to give him a pair of Sperry shoes.
For those of you who don’t know, we have a dock on Lake Ontario and have a couple boats including a sailboat. My husband also races on a sailboat in the summer, and one year he even convinced my parents to join us on a trip to see the America’s Cup sailboat races in Bermuda. He thinks it’s funny when I call him a sailor, but it sounds like he is right?
We’ve purchased him a few pairs of Sperry shoes over the last few years and not only have they lasted incredibly long, but they are also just happen to be his favourite shoes. I bought him some great Sperry camo deck shoes years and years ago that he still wears during the summer months, and his racing shoes are also from Sperry and are in amazing shape considering how long he has had them.
I thought that this year I would get him more of an every day shoe from Sperry, so I chose the Sperry Men’s Gold Cup Richfield PLUSHWAVE Sneaker. I loved the colour, and I loved the casual style. They also have one-of-a-kind stitching, and are made with leather and lambskin. I can tell these are the type of shoes that will mould to his feet and end up being his comfortable favourites. I love how cool they look!
By the way, you are probably wondering what PLUSHWAVE means – it’s a removable footbed that is shock-absorbing, and the PLUSHWAVE midsole provides underfoot cushioning.
For those of you with a boat, the outsole is rubber and non-marking so you can easily wear it on the boat as well!
It felt good to get this gift wrapped and ready to go under the tree! I love buying things for my husband he will use and love, and things that make him a bit more stylish as well.
If you are thinking about buying a gift for someone in your life that loves a great pair of shoes, I would head to Sperry.com for your holiday shopping! Their shipping was incredibly quick – I was impressed! They have international shipping, and so many different shoes for men, women and children.
How is your holiday shopping going? Are you just getting started, or are you done?
