your assignment to complete tonight/infinitive question

Which are correct:

1) These are my shoes to wear at home and those are my shoes to wear at work.
2) These are my shoes for wearing at home and those are my shoes for wearing
 at work.

3) This is your assignment to complete tonight.

4) These are my books to take to my office and those are my books to take to
my girlfriend's place.

5) These are your forms to complete and hand in by Tuesday.



I don't think there is a 'for + gerund' form possible for 3, 4 and 5.

Gratefully,
Navi

Navi,

I don't have a problem with any of your five examples.

I don't think there is a 'for + gerund' form possible for 3, 4 and 5.

I agree.  I could imagine a "which" clause, though:

3a: This is your assignment, which is to be completed tonight.
