The more I travel, the more I try to make a home away from home with items that feel comfy, cozy, and, well, homey. In the winter months, traveling with a pair of wool slippers has become 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 can't stop wearing them in the winter the way I wear Chaco sandals in the summertime: every day, everywhere, for almost every purpose.

That's what makes wool slippers such a great gift for everyone on your list. High-quality slippers like these will last for years and aren't necessarily just for the indoors. They're great to travel in, whether you're dashing through an airport, stuck in traffic or trying to get comfortable on a long train journey. They're instantly reminiscent of home as soon as you put them on, and unlike fashion-first shoes, they won't pinch your feet or make you sweat when you wear them without socks.

This holiday season, consider these luxury slippers for the loved ones on your list, from your partner to a parent. You might even want to splurge on a pair for yourself while you're at it.

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, you can wear them outside of the house 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. The easy slip-on, slip-off style makes it a perfect shoe for airports and long flights.

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