Christmas is almost here! And with less than two weeks left, we here at OTBT Shoes are excited to pick up the last few gifts for our friends and loved ones for this holiday season. Still have a few more people to shop for and in need of inspiration? No worries! We've put together a gift guide to help you as you search for the perfect presents for those left on your Christmas shopping list. Here's a few ideas! 


If you know someone who travels a lot (whether for work or for play), consider gifts that they can really use to make the most of their journeys. For example, a portable battery charger or a leather passport jacket are both excellent ideas for practical presents. Also consider a cozy hoodie or a neck pillow so she can get some shut-eye on long international flights. If you're willing to spend a little more money, consider a roomy travel tote that gives them plenty of space to store all their essentials (and then some!) Lastly, every traveler needs a reliable pair of kicks. Our pick is the KHORA, a lightweight perforated sneaker that's oh-so-comfortable. They're the perfect shoes for backpacking across Europe, strolling through the streets of New York, or even just running to catch that last-minute connecting flight.


When shopping for college students, it's important to keep in mind their on-campus life, and think of what will make their studies (as well as their down time) more enjoyable. A nice travel mug and a Starbucks gift card are always good ideas. (And what college student doesn't love coffee?) A cozy pair of yoga pants or leggings are also great for lounging around the dorm, hitting up the gym, or even keeping it casual on a Saturday afternoon with friends. If they're looking to stay organized to and from class, a colorful laptop sleeve could make an excellent gift, and if you're looking to spend a little extra money, an Apple Watch could be a great way to go. Finally, if you've got shoes on your mind (like us!), we've got just the pair that she'll love: our best-selling BUSHNELL! These platform wedges are stylish, comfortable and beloved by college students across the nation.

Shopping for someone who loves the great outdoors? Think of gifts that will make their outside wanderings even more enjoyable. No explorer can resist a rugged yet roomy rucksack to carry all of their essentials. Also consider a sturdy waterbottle, a cozy winter hat or beanie, and maybe even a compass pendant, like the one pictured above. If you're looking to spend a bit more money, get them an action camera, like the GoPro, so they can document their great adventures to share with the world. And with all this adventuring comes the need for sturdy high-quality shoes to keep them steady on their feet. We recommend the PROVIDENCElace-up high-top sneakers, with their durable rubber sole, comfortable interior and velcro back strap opening for easy on-and-off. 



Know someone who has a love for all thing hippie or bohemian? Embrace her off-beat personality and sense of style with gifts you know she'll love. Keep a look out for unique items that she'll go nuts over. A handcrafted necklace or set of earrings would make a great present, and you can't go wrong with herbal teas, aromatic candles or incense. If she's into boho fashion, a lovely dress from a local boutique is a great idea. Complete the look with the INDIO, our Bushnell-inspired style with just the right amount of hippie flair.

We hope these ideas help you as you put together your shopping list! What will you be getting your wanderers for Christmas? Let us know in the comments below!
