Before this year, I traveled quite a bit and would always bring a few items that could make a home away from home feel comfy, cozy, and, well, homey. In the winter months, traveling with a pair of wool slippers became a non-negotiable for me, both for their coziness and practicality. I love slippers with outdoor soles, like Glerups' booties, which seem to match everything, and I find myself wearing them in the winter the way I wear Chaco sandals in the summer: every day, everywhere, for almost every purpose.

Now that we're spending more time at home and winter is almost here, we might as well be cozy and comfortable, which means a pair of wool slippers is such a great gift for anyone on your list. High-quality slippers like these will last for years and, depending on the sole style, aren't necessarily just for indoor use. Plus, unlike fashion-first shoes, they won't pinch your feet or make you sweat when you wear them without socks.

Glerups are made in Denmark from 100 percent wool felt and natural rubber soles. They also have models with calfskin soles, which are intended for indoor use. They come in slip-on, shoe and boot styles for both men and women, in quite a few different colors. The easy slip-on, slip-off styles make any pair of Glerups slippers a perfect shoe for airports and long flights for your future travel plans. Glerups even come in kids' sizes so the whole family can match!

These are the kind of shoes you never want to take off, even after a long day when you flop onto the couch. These slippers made of wool felt and rubber soles feel like a cozy sweater for your feet. They're intended to be worn sockless, and thanks to the treads on the soles of this style, you can wear them outside even on a mildly snowy day and stay perfectly warm. I love how well they've molded to my feet, and how they regulate my temperature. Because these shoes are versatile enough to wear every day, I've often worn them on warmer days and been shocked at how I haven't overheated.

Buy It

If you or the person to whom you plan to gift wool slippers only need slippers for indoor use at home, the more affordable (but still just as cozy) leather sole option is also a great choice, especially for anyone who wants to stay cozy while working from home. Several HGTV editors own this style and have gotten a lot of use out of them this year.

Buy It

While Glerups slippers are pricier than many other wool slippers, they'll truly last and are well worth the splurge, especially if you're shopping for someone who already seems to have everything.
