If you’re in need of some inspo for Christmas gifts this season, look no further than our good selves. Flip Flop Shop gets busier every Christmas, with flip flops and sandals being the essential footwear of choice for so many events. With a massive selection of styles in our range to suit just about everybody - they’re practical, comfortable, affordable and sure to please any recipient. Read on to discover The Flip Flop Shop's Essential Christmas Gift Guide.
For Ladies who Love Spa Days
If a special lady in your life loves Spa Days, flip flops are a necessity. Having her spangly Ipanema Sparkle tucked away in her bag, ready to pop on by the hydropool while she sips a super juice mocktail and later has her toes delicately Shellac’d, will ensure she can spa-day in style. Better still buy her a spa day voucher and ingeniously present it nestled within a box of Reef Stargazer or similar. It will add to the delight of receiving such an indulgent gift.
For Sporty Swimmer Types
Whether they’re a year-round triathlete / gym goer / pool lover or brave winter surfer, Crocband or Rider island are great all-rounders. Waterproof, durable and light to carry around. They can pop these in their kit bag and never have to walk barefoot on cold sand or ‘skusting gym shower floors!
For The Fashionista - Socks and Sandals Movement
You can’t beat a fashion statement and we are fully embracing the wooly socks and sandals moment. Pioneered by the likes of Teva and Birkenstock, the practical solution to wearing the most comfiest footwear known to man all through the winter. Pick a pair of soft wooly socks to pair with and give the gift of comfort.
For The Difficult-To-Buy-For Man
If the man in your life is a ‘grown up boy’ who loves his Superheros and is a total pain in the posterior to buy for, then some comic flip flops will raise a smile. Havaianas tick just about every box for a flip flop - comfortable, durable and timeless, a touch of printed humour make for the perfect stocking filler at a great price too.
For The Intrepid Travellers
Got a budding Bear Grylls in the house? A friend or family member about to embark on a travelling adventure? Chances are they’re not expecting a pair of sandals round the tree and we have a huge selection ever-ready for active pursuits. Keen is THE brand for rock climbing, rambling or trekking. Teva are designed for the explorer, or try Birkenstock for gentler expeditions. Image @jajatanti
For Zen-Yoga Types
Let the seasonal love and good vibes flow with some Sanuk Yoga Slings. Made from actual yoga mat with soft material uppers, these babies feel like heaven on the feet! Ideal for slinging on for a yoga class or for zaney recipients who love nothing more than the feeling of being barefooted and fancy free. They’re sure to thank you for sharing a bit of Namaste this Christmas time.
For The Winter Sun Seekers
If you have some all-year-round-tan catchers in your circle, glamorous flip flops such as FitFlop Super Glitz grant many a wish on a Christmas list. Super chic and look amazing on the end of tanned legs. Smart enough for sundowners on the terrace of a Cruise ship deck, comfortable enough for poolside lounging or sightseeing trips. Handover this gift of sunshine and try not to let the jealousy shine through!
For Brides to Be
Stuck on a present for a bride-to-be, a pair of pretty flip flops will make her day. Flip Flops or Sandals for brides are increasingly appearing on lists of bridal essentials. Whether for a beach bride’s day wear or emergency late night dancing go-tos, a bride will always be appreciative of pair of bejeweled flats such as Havaianas Slim Crystal Glamour featuring Swarovski stones.
