Day 3: Christmas stockings
Slippers have to be one of the lamest Christmas presents, right? Well, maybe not if they're as cute as these Gap slipper socks - which is why they're day 3 of my Advent calendar.
I love the chunky cable-knit, the crocheted pompoms and the fact that they look so darn cosy. But, best of all, they come in a wealth of colours from teal green to pink to purple to red to grey - each with brown or grey fleecy lining, much like the cuddly softness of a teddy bear. There's even a bobbly teddy bear pair in cream, plus a knitted brown Fair Isle number, too. You're spoilt for choice. And for just £16.50, too.
Oh, and did I mention the soles are as smooth as suede? I hate it when slippers have horrid moulded-plastic soles. don't you?
