We guys would all love to receive a pair of kicks for Christmas, but giving them out? That's a splurge only a select few would be worthy of. If you've got a lot of shoe lovers in your life, then we recommend stuffing their stockings with some of these sneakerhead essentials instead.

1) Shoe Cleaners

Every sneakerhead will be happy to have one of these—and even if he's already got some, a reload is always welcome!
