Today’s Recommendation: A Perfect Gift or Coffee Table Book for Shoe Lovers

Request: My friend has a vast collection of shoes and love, love shoes in general!  I want to give her a gift for her birthday but I don’t want to give her shoes as she has her own taste and I’m afraid that I’m going to give her the wrong color, fit or style. I don’t know what to give on her birthday.  Any idea?

Recommendation: Other than giving her a gift card to her favorite shoe store, you can also give her this shoe fantasy book from Michel Tcherevkoff.  You can purchase from

“It is an outrageous imaginary collection of botanical shoes and accessories book created by photographer and artist Michel Tcherevkoff.  Each virtual shoe is amazingly crafted out of numerous photographs of a single plant or flower” (source: Virtual Shoe Museum).   This would make a perfect coffee table book or collection for any shoe lovers!

    all the best,
