Create a cosy hamper
It can be just as rewarding to create a cosy hamper from scratch. And you won’t need to break the bank to do so. It just requires a bit of planning, sourcing materials, and, of course, a pair of cushy slippers.
1. Theme your hamper
A DIY hamper isn’t just about stuffing things into a wicker basket. Most hampers have a theme, and you’re already halfway there with your cosy hamper fit for Christmas or a winter birthday.
2. Decide on a budget
Your budget will determine what goes in your hamper. Luckily, a slipper hamper won’t cost much. You’re able to combine a few inexpensive gifts to create a gift that is low in cost but rich in love.
3. Choose your extra gifts
What gifts go with a fuzzy pair of slippers? Appeal to all the senses by combining colours, scents, and textures to create the ultimate hamper. We recommend socks, mugs, candles, and other cosy items. Don’t forget to include shredded paper for a vibrant backdrop!
4. Add the finishing touches
Classic gift boxes and wicker hampers don’t need much dressing up. But a satin ribbon tied in a bow can really bring everything together. For baskets, finish off with cellophane or shrink wrap to secure your gifts. We recommend grabbing some recycled ones!

Should you size up or down for slippers?
Generally, your slippers should be the same as your normal shoe size. However, it depends on the style of slipper. Booties are a secure fit, so you should stick to your usual size. But if you tend to wear socks with your slippers, then you’ll want a pair with a looser fit – such as moccasins or mules.
What brand is best for slippers?
Some brands prioritise comfort while others focus on style. Crocs slippers are lightweight and flexible, while Skechers are durable with gripped outsoles for stability. Once you discover what slippers are good for your feet, you’ll never want to wear shoes again!
Whether you’re curled up on the sofa or doing chores around the house, show your feet some love with a comfy pair of slippers. Find out how to keep your slippers clean and more on our Shoe Zone blog.
