Our Fast 5 Favorites from Birkenstock’s Newest Gift Guide

Our editors hit the gift guides on one of our favorite brands, Birkenstock, to find our fuzziest, comfy-est favorites…

Got someone on your list that loves something that’s both classic and current? Once called the ‘ugly sandal’ (not by us, TYVM, we’ve been stans for years) the Birkenstock has rocketed into the cool girl club this season and shows zero signs of slowing down. From Gigi to Kendall, Chrissy Teigen to Tracee Ellis Ross, to even Barbie herself, as in Margot Robbie…Birks are on just about every model and celeb.

But Birks aren’t just another pretty face, they’re also extremely comfortable. With over 250 years (we’re not capping, this shoe has been around since 1774!!) this brand knows how to make a great shoe that you’ll never want to take off.

Sound like a great gift idea? Let’s get your inspo going with five of our editors’ favorites straight from the official Birkenstock 2023 Gift Guide.


If you’ve seen any pic of an A-lister lately, this is the Birkenstock they probably were wearing. One of the brand’s most iconic style, made famous by 70s musicians and flower children, it’s an incredibly comfortable shoe. Made from quality, oiled nubuck leather, it’s designed to age over time for a perfectly worn, one-of-a-kind look. Comes in five color options, including this cheery sky blue.

Birkenstock, Arizona Soft Footbed $145


The Big Buckle is to the Arizona like Kendall is to Kourtney. Both equally popular, but the BB is a younger, fresh take on the iconic classic. As the name implies, the buckle is bolder, and the leather isn’t oiled, but the overall silhouette remains perfectly minimalistic. Comes in five color options, including this soft red version that’s exclusive to the Birk site.

Birkenstock, Arizona Big Buckle $160



For that true fashionista on your list. S/S 2024 runway shows saw silver domination everywhere. The super stylish Gizeh gets its own metallic upgrade with brand new cool silver straps and buckle, plus a chic black footbed that absolutely drips.

Baby, it’s cold outside! If you prefer to give your loved one a gift they’ll use immediately, this wool felt slipper will be their new go-to to keep their tootsies toasty. The Zermatt has the same anatomically shaped cork/latex footbed as the classic Birk, but adds wool felt on the outside and cozy shearling inside. And when springtime comes around? The shearling lining is removable, letting your loved one continue to wear this stellar slipper all season long.

Finally, here’s the unicorn that you could spend weeks trying to track down anywhere else…and most likely when you do find it, there’s a hefty markup applied. Skip the drama and get it straight from the brand site for the better price. Plus if the size you want isn’t in stock (which happens quickly) you can give your email address and the brand will let you know the moment it’s back in stock so you can snap it up asap.
