Oh ladies, I think we just struck gold. This is like hitting Texas T, but we’re not the Beverly Hillbillies and this definitely ain’t about oil. If you can’t figure out what you want to get your best girlfriend, sister, mother, et cetera, for the holidays, or if you’re having trouble letting your loved ones know what you want, maybe you should head on over to Net-a-Porter.com. Why? Because of The Ultimate Shoe Subscription, that’s why.
I can’t think of how many times someone has gotten me a year long subscription for a magazine, or given me one of those fruit-of-the-month deals, where you get either fruit baskets or a different kind of seasonal fruit sent to you every month. And maybe it’s Grinchy of me, but I don’t like them. I have no use for them; I buy my own fruit and I get my own magazines. You know what I could do with? A new pair of shoes every month. That’s what Net-a-Porter is offering, in a subscription that’s good for $10,000 worth of store credit at the designer site. Of course, the whole package costs $10,000 too, but when you consider that you’re giving someone a pair of shoes every month, that’s actually a good deal. In addition to the fabulous footwear, the site says its gift package also includes styling and fashion advice from their experts. You can also get a head start on reserving the shoes you’re dying to have, plus you’ll get a chance to sneak a peek at the newest styles and designs.
Of course, to say the least, $10,000 is quite a lot of money, so the good news is that ShoeDazzle.com has a similar offer. With their subscription, you pay $39.95 every month for a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry, or a handbag delivered each month. They personalize your style with a little quiz, and every month they’ll have at least 30 choices based on your specifications that you can choose from.
Happy holidays, right?
