Holiday Gift Guide 2010: KIWI Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/25) CLOSED

Saturday, December 11, 2010 Posted by Dina N

My shoes need a little extra TLC in fall and winter. KIWI, my favorite brand for shoe care, has some wonderful products that help protect my shoes from the weather. They also make the perfect stocking stuffers this holiday season.

The KIWI’s Suede & Nubuck Protector and the KIWI Leather Care Kit are just what I need to keep our family's shoes in top shape during rain and snow season. I love suede shoes but they have to be protected this time of year. The Suede & Nubuck Protector creates an invisible shield on my shoes that keeps them dry and helps prevent water stains throughout the winter months. If you are wrapping a brand new pair of UGGs to put under the tree, it will make the perfect addition.

For trips to see family and friends - and to look presentable at that holiday gathering - or for anyone who travels a lot on business, the KIWI Leather Care Kit is a great travel companion. The kit includes two tins of shoe polish (one black and one brown), two sponge applicators, a shine brush and a shine cloth. They come in a nice, compact zippered pouch that takes no space at all in that suitcase. The kit is a useful stocking stuffer for anyone who needs to take good care of their shoes on the go.

Fun Alert
Right now, KIWI are having a fun giveaway event on Facebook - the 12 Days of KIWI!
