    Hey all, to cut an extremely long story short:

    My girlfriend's mum is living in another country and visited for a few days, she told me to buy my girlfriend presents from her and gave me the money for it seeing as she didn't have the time. One of the instructions was to buy her a "nice pair of slippers." I haven't the slightest clue what constitutes a nice pair of slippers given that I'm perfectly happy with Primark ones, but alas this is the situation. I was thinking somewhere in the price range of £20 or so (possibly a bit more say £25), what shops should I look in? Marks and Spencers is the only one that pops into my mind as selling slippers but it doesn't strike me as the type of place with clothing for 19 year old girls?

    All help much appreciated, thanks in advance! :confused:

    I'd say go for ones with some fur (fake, for the animal rights people :rolleyes:) on the inside, because that feels nice on feet. However, I say that as someone with very bad feet - too many breaks and sprains have made little nobbly bits stick out and it all just hurts in the cold. :lol:

    What sort of style does your girlfriend like?

    Squash a couple of 500ml water bottles and loop an elastic band round them.
    Voila.

    T J Hughes have some pretty ones for less then a tenner. But try department stores like Debanhams and M&S for expensive ones. But if it were me, I'd prefer cheaper ones and for the money to be spent on other stuff.

    Expensive =/= nice.

    You can get some lovely slippers for less

    I got some nice ones from ASDA last year. They were purple leopard print ones with a gem, I got quite a few compliments from them.
    Just try any of the high street shops, but I don't think you should spend £25 on slippers tbh.
