Boot & Shoe Kit

A good, maybe even inexpensive gift for a boy, based on #19 of 50 Things for Bored Boys To Do is a kit for cleaning, shining, and weather-proofing shoes. Start a boy out with this and he'll have the tools to master one of the most useful of skills. (There is a nice division of labor implied here:  the boy can shine his sister's shoes and she replace the buttons. See The Sewing Kit.)

It doesn't need much, just a plastic bag or case to put the materials in where they won't stain anything else.

And in it, the following essentials:
  • Soft rags
  • Mink oil for weather-proofing shoes
  • Shoe polish in appropriate colors
  • Optional:  a great shoe brush
