Last Minute Gift Ideas From Your Friendly Podiatrist’s Office

It’s T-minus 10 days till the big holiday, and you still need to find a few gifts.  I’ve compiled a list of things that are both of quality and usefulness for your gift recipient. Some are easily found here locally, and others are online purchases. Take a look and see what inspires you as you shop for your last-minute gifts.

Le Mini Macaron’s 3-in-1 Spa Pedicure Kit is a spa set to relax & prep your feet for your next pedicure! It includes foot butter, 3 fizzy foot bombs in lavender scent, and a double-sided pumice and foot brush. You can find it at Ulta.


Balega Hidden Contour socks will keep your feet happy with their cushioned and structured design. They provide a supportive fit that promotes natural foot movement and proper blood circulation thanks to the unique positioning of varying elastic bands. Sweaty feet won’t be a problem in these socks—they contain Balega’s proprietary Drynamix moisture-wicking fibers and reinforced microfiber ventilation panels to keep your feet cool and dry. A seamless toe, extra-deep heel and a heel tab help mitigate blisters and prevent any slipping in the shoe. Plus, this entire sock is made in the USA. Pick up a few fun colors at Fleet Feet Santa Rosa.

Dearfoams Women’s and Men’s Indoor/Outdoor Warm-Up Bootie Slipper are on Oprah’s Favorite Things 2022 List this year and they are selling out fast! With quilted nylon on the outside and memory foam insoles, this plush pair, makes it feel like you’re walking on a cloud. Snag a pair for mom, dad, and yourself on Amazon.

Medal Holder is great for that person that hangs their running medals all over the place.  It keeps them neatly displayed and is available with different sayings/mantras. Available from



Kera-42 Cream is an unconventional gift idea and would make better sense if you included in your own DIY footcare basket. Kera-42 Cream is a Urea-based daily moisturizer that is used to keep callus build-up at bay and away.  This is a high-quality and useful gift that specific family members may appreciate.  You can pick up a bottle at our office, and perhaps even grab a few colors of Dr.’s REMEDY nail polish or a pair of Spenco PolySborb orthotic inserts- great for everyone- to include with it!

Water Bottle Carriers are an overlooked useful accessory for men and women.  They can provide extra insulation, free up your hands and even offer extra storage options for your phone or keys.  The Go Time Gear Exo-Tek H2O MOLLE Water Bottle Pouch Hydration Carrier has it all, zipper closures, a padded strap, a drainage hole, a straw slot, and more.  Great gift for that outdoorsy person!  If you want a water bottle carrier that offers more personal expression and color, take a look at the WINTOJO Water Bottle Carrier Bag Holder which comes in several colors and sizes! Find these both on Amazon.

Nourish them with a gift card to Fruity Moto Restaurant. They make the most colorful and tasty dishes and drinks. From pressed juice, to smoothies, gluten-free dishes and mouth-watering bowls and sandwhiches. *UPDATE: Just got word that their Santa Rosa shop will be closing. You can however, still enjoy their amazing creations via foodtruck. Follow them on Instagram #SonomaFruityMoto to find out where they will be next.


And if all else fails in your search for the “perfect” gift, just know that you yourself are a perfect gift.  Happy Holidays to you all.
