I know it's far too early to be thinking about Christmas (unless you're one of those people who likes to buy all your gifts in January, of course), but it's never too soon to be thinking about pressies, and, more specifically, what they may arrive in. If you're a true shoe lover, the tired old "stocking on the fireplace" just won't cut it, and who wants to use an old sock when they could have a shiny, stiletto boot? These Christmas boot stockings are £19.95 each, which is almost as much as a pair of real (albeit cheap) boots, but they're a lot more fun than a sock (or a pillowcase, which is what I used to use, greedy child that I was). There's a variety of colours available, none of which you'd want to wear on your feet, but which might look good above that fireplace.
