Shoes make great gifts! Spend your gift dollars on a cool pair sneakers or trendy shoes that a kid can wear every day, instead of a pricey toy that he'll play with for a week, and then forget. Quality shoes make an especially nice gift for a child who's family may struggle to buy good shoes. Here's 5 tips for buying a child the gift of shoes:
1. Find out the kid's size.
2. Do some style sleuthing
3. Make sure returns are easy.
4. Buy a gift card from a quality shoe retailer.
Whether you choose an e-commerce retailer, or a brick and mortar store, a gift card from a reputable shoe retailer ensures that your recipient will get quality shoes that fit, even if they have to run an errand with mom or dad to get them. My favorites are Stride Rite (store or .com), and Zappos.com.
