Some people, men and women alike, cannot wait for the winter season so they can throw on a pair of winter boots. For those who adore winter weather, appropriately themed gifts from loved ones can help keep their feet warm. Winter boot gift ideas help friends and family stock up the outdoor enthusiast's closet with new items, fueling their love of a favorite winter season accessory and necessity.
- Boot-lovers will be thrilled with a new pair of winter boots. Choose the boots based on the recipient's gender, along with other factors. There are suede, leather, knit and faux fur-lined styles, among many others. Evaluate what type of boots the recipient usually wears, and get a pair that is similar, or choose a certain style or specific pair of boots he has hinted that he would like.

If she typically walks outside on icy or snowy surfaces in the winter, a pair of strap-on cleats is a useful gift. Those who are nervous when walking on ice may feel more secure walking with cleats strapped to the boots. The cleats add extra traction to prevent the slips and falls that are risked when wearing boots alone.
- Socks may seem like a boring gift at first, but they can prove to be quite useful. There are several types of socks the recipient may appreciate, depending on the type of boots he typically wears. For those who frequently walk through snow, a pair of waterproof socks would be advantageous. Thermal socks can be worn with almost any type of boot, considering they provide warmth and are not too thin or thick to be uncomfortable. For those who wear heavy duty work boots, a pair of thick knit socks will do wonders for protecting against cold and moisture.
- When someone walks through snow or rain, her feet are likely to get wet. While a change of socks can temporarily make the situation better, it will not do anything for already moist boots. Letting them air dry may take longer than desired, and boot dryers will make the process go a lot faster.
