Christmas is Sorted

As the festive period draws ever closer, it has got me thinking of the best gifts that we, here at McConnell’s HQ, have to offer in way of Christmas gifts.

If you are anything like me, then every year you struggle to know what to buy your close friends and family, then I am here to at least give you a few ideas!  From slippers to walking shoes, handbags to welly socks, we have you covered and if these don’t tickle your fancy, then you can never go wrong with a gift voucher as everyone loves shoes...right??

For the ladies in your life, we have an abundance of goodies on offer, and what lady doesn’t want to see a shoe box shaped present under the tree!

So on having a wee nosey round the shop, I have noticed that our number one bestseller at Christmas has to be our EMU slippers! Now these are to die for and are available in 6 different colours. Purple, mushroom, pink, indigo, chestnut and grey. Picking the colour is the hardest part! Ahh! These super soft, plush, warm slippers are simply perfect at this time of year. emu

The soft sheepskin lining is so cosy on the foot whilst being breathable, so it keeps your foot warm in winter and cool in summer. The perfect all year round investment! The Australian suede upper really looks class and the TRP rubber Aussiesole is hardwearing and durable. The moulded EVA layer adds comfort and support. So not only are you getting a gorgeous slipper, you are getting support and comfort too! We just love them!

EMU are not just limited to slippers however, their range of winter boots are amazing and would make a real treat for someone this Christmas. EMU Roadside is my absolute fav as you have the luxury of the sheepskin lining teamed with the mix of smooth and suede leather uppers. Perfect to team with your skinnies for these cold winter days. (Bonus - £20 off this style for a limited time!)


EMU Deepwater Mini is another shop favourite. These ankle slip on furry boots are simply amazing! Not only are they toasty warm down to -30°C (!) but they are also waterproof which is perfect for our good ole Northern Irish weather! Take your pick from a chestnut or burgundy finish and you will not fault the sheer comfort of these! Your feet will thank you later!emu-deepwater

A nice wee alternative boot in the EMU range this season is Koora. This would be the perfect throw on  winter snug boot. Sheepskin lined, suede upper, the most perfect boot for all you apres skiers out there! Hehe! And what’s not to love about soft comfy cosy boots at this time of year???koora

If sheepskin boots are not quite to your liking then Escape Nasir is where you need to feast your eyes. This yearly bestseller is just that  again this season. Take your pick of tan, black or burgundy for that lady in your life that loves anything and everything glitzy and sparkly! These are the perfect accessory for those dark skinny jeans for those shopping and mulled wine days with the girls or those Christmas nights out! These are a definite win this Christmas and ladies you need to add them to your Santa list!escape-nasir

Santa elves also have a great selection of Joules wellies sitting in the workshop ready to be parcelled up and sent down the chimney! These are the perfect gift for those dog walking, gardening, forest trekking ladies out there. We have prints including flowers, stripes, spots and birds and both long and short legs! Perfect little stocking fillers and these are available from size 3 through to size 8. We are so in love! joules

These are merely a few little ideas to get you on your merry way towards getting those gifts under the tree and if you are really stuck for ideas, then don’t forget that we have gift vouchers available for any amount so they can come in and treat themselves!

For a limited time we have 10% off all Adult full price footwear and our super Winter sale is currently being picked over so get down quick and get a wee bargain for yourself whilst you are “browsing for Christmas pressies!”
