To Gift a Pair of Socks or Not?

Enter the echelons of no-no gifting ideas, and socks likely sit high on the list. Somewhere near soap on a rope or breath mints?

When did a pair of feet warmers become blasé, we’re not sure. So we’re here to topple those tomes to how and what to gift, with three reasons why socks make for a splendid present to share.

1. Socks can make you smile

That may sound odd at first, until you stumble upon a fuzzy flamingo, masking your feet. Or a teddy bear enveloping your toes. A dash of silliness is bound to crack a smile from those on the receiving end.

2. Socks come in all shapes and sizes

If there’s one thing we can agree on, we all have differing tastes. The great thing about socks – they too can cater to our varied preferences and sizes. Cute and frilly, practical and plain or wild and adventurous – there’s a pair of socks to fit both feet and character.

3. Socks are versatile

Ribbed, silky or sporty – there is a style to fit all moods and personalities. While some sock options may seem too everyday, why not consider something with a touch of luxe. An unexpected detail or premium fabric, can go a long way in elevating that sock gifting game.
