Though a smoking slipper makes the cut as one of our must-have shoes, we understand that the dandyish style is typically not what most men are chomping at the bit to invest in—which is exactly why it makes such a great gift. Stubbs & Wootton has one of the widest selection of slippers out there, with styles ranging from classic velvet to more daytime appropriate leather and linen. We’d suggest leaning into the style’s debonair roots and customizing a pair for your intended with the brand’s easy-to-use online bespoke service (from $550). You can home in exactly on their style, choosing everything from the shape of the toe box and the material for the upper to the exact shade of grosgrain you’d like them to be trimmed in. Plus, there are hundreds of different classic monograms and playful motifs to emblazon them with, adding an extra personal touch.
