Last time I went hiking after a heavy rain, I was wearing my regular hiking boots. My host graciously offered her spare rain boots to me. I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were. And I felt so carefree since I could step them into ankle deep-mud, knowing that everything would wash out fine. Since then I have been stalking several pairs of rain boots, and I am pretty close to coming up with the winner.

If you are thinking about giving a gift that is untypical, why not consider one of these rain boots as her Christmas gifts? They can keep her dry and comfy during the rainy snowy day. If you think they are just an ugly pair of necessity, then you are dead wrong. Nowadays rain boots are style statements. Ever since Kate Moss, Mary-Kate Olson and Jessica Alba sported theirs, rains boots are now must haves for fashionistas. Rain and mud are actually not necessary when wearing these boots, though they function well in the rain as intended.
