Viscata Holiday Gift Guide 2023

Viscata Holiday Gift Guide 2023

The holiday season is upon us and we’re all grappling with the perennial questions.  What do we want for Christmas and what special Christmas gifts are we going to buy for the people we love most? Stockings will be hung by chimneys in the hope that Santa will deliver everything they desire. But in reality, we know that up and down the country people will be looking for the ideal gifts to stuff their stockings with. And, as you’d expect, we think you should give the people you love what they really want - beautiful shoes, stunning handbags and gorgeous espadrilles for the good times that lie ahead. So, we’ve anticipated a few of your questions and come up with some festive inspiration from our 2023 Viscata holiday gift guide to make things a bit easier for you. We have plenty of beautiful gifts for women and we even have gifts for men. It’s our best gifting guide ever, so don’t miss out. And if you want to take the guesswork out of Christmas, simply offer them a Viscata gift card and let them choose for themselves.

What should I buy for a woman who has everything? 

Women always need new shoes. They can never have enough of them and some of them are so obsessed that they have entire rooms in their houses dedicated to keeping them pristine and perfect. Now that might be a little over the top, but the general principle applies. Women love shoes. It doesn’t matter how much stuff they have, how many diamond rings and pearl necklaces they drape around their elegant necks, offer them a pair of shoes and watch their face light up. See how they react to our handmade Spanish espadrilles. They’re fashion staples that every woman should have. And while you’re at it, they quite like handbags too!

Why is gifting Viscata a meaningful gift?

Viscata is an authentic and original brand that comes from the heart. Every pair of our shoes has been handmade with love by Spanish artisans who have been infusing our premium quality shoes with love for many years. Their skills have been cherished and nurtured over the centuries and handed down from generation to generation. We like to think you can feel the love that goes into every pair of shoes. We also think the holiday season is all about giving. 

And that doesn’t mean rushing out to the mall on Christmas Eve in a pre-holiday panic and grabbing whatever’s left for your loved one. In fact, the opposite is true. The true joy of the holiday season comes from thinking about your family and friends and finding the right gift for them. It comes from watching the look of delight on their face when they realise you’ve bought them exactly what they wanted and from the laughter and light that come from that simple act of making someone happy. And what you give to the most precious people in your life says a lot about them (and a lot about you). We know that women love beautiful shoes and stylish handbags. And Viscata has a world leading range of premium shoes, espadrilles, handbags in more than 450 different colors, style and materials.This vast choice of shoes means you can spend some time (maybe even with a festive cocktail in hand) to peruse the world’s largest online range of authentic espadrilles so you can find exactly the right pair of shoes to put in their stockings this year. The perfect pair is out there.
