Now that Halloween has come and gone we can start thinking about the holidays. While I try to avoid most Christmas things until after Thanksgiving, now is still a great time to start thinking about the gifts. I’m notorious for not knowing what I’d like, so I need all the time I can get. Plus, with shopping beginning earlier and earlier each year, it’s good to have that wish list made and available.
Up first are the shoes you should be asking for this winter. Some you’ll be wearing right now. Some you’re going to have to wait a little bit for.
