The holidays are coming up and once again we’re faced with this yearly dilemma: What do we get those closest to us?
Whatever your opinion about giving socks as gifts, you simply can’t deny it’s a sensible choice. Because, hey, everyone could always use a fresh pair of socks. Even those people who have everything. Plus, your gift doesn’t have to be boring.
While getting socks as presents may have been a huge disappointment growing up, it doesn’t have to be. And this year, we’re taking Christmas back with a whole slew of designs we guarantee your loved ones will adore. (As in literally, thanks to IDENTITY’s 100% Happiness Guarantee.)
And the best part is that you can choose from literally hundreds of designs that let your loved ones express their individuality. Whatever their personality, we have a huge selection to choose from to help you take the guesswork out of what to give them. Gift them a set according to theme or just buy a few pairs as stocking stuffers (yes, we see the irony).
If you’re having trouble deciding, check out our Ultimate Style Guide to Socks for some tips on what kind of socks to wear for different occasions. But for now, here are our top picks for the different people in your life.
At one end of the spectrum, we have the uber pragmatic. They value function over fashion, and don’t really like drawing attention to themselves. Given that, you can’t go wrong with blacks, whites, and greys.
This simple palette endures for a reason. From no-shows, ankle-length, to crew length, they go with absolutely everything, and no sock drawer should be without them.
But you can also step it up a notch with a wide range of solids in a variety of colors. Sensible, functional, and understated, it’s the perfect style choice for those who want to keep it low key.
The Dapper Gent
We all know someone who’s particularly deliberate in what they wear. For the style-conscious, stripes, dots, and argyle make up a timeless look that’s apt for every occasion. They’re perfect for building a classic and tasteful capsule wardrobe. And the best part is, you can also pair them with just about anything.
Whether you’re keeping it casual or want to inject a bit of personality into your business attire, these are great for completing your ensemble. You can match colors with what you’re wearing above the waist, or coordinate them with your trousers.
And now we come to those who go against the grain and aren’t afraid to do their own thing. They have their own personal style, love to take risks, and put their unique character on display. Forget the fads and trends. They’re free to just be themselves, whether they’re letting a little personality show, or going all out.
That’s why funky, novelty printed socks are blowing up right now. Call it daring, fashion forward, or just flamboyant, take your pick from fun and whimsical designs in bold colors to add a whole lot of flash to an outfit; from colorful geometric patterns, food themes, or even creatures of the deep. These create an eye-catching point of interest to an otherwise tame OOTD. They’re also sure to bring a smile to your face every time you look at your feet.
The Art Lover
For those who love art, you might be interested in an incredible collection featuring the masters of the art world. Gift them with Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Mona Lisa Smile, Michelangelo’s Statue of David, and Japan’s most famous artwork, Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa.
If modern art is more their speed, there’s impressionist Claude Monet’s Houses of Parliament at Sunset, Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Self Portrait, and Cypress, and Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
Although nothing beats experiencing the real thing, there’s now no reason you can’t enjoy some of the world’s greatest masterpieces on a daily basis. These socks are works of art unto themselves that transform your sock drawer into your own personal art gallery!
The Space Enthusiast
Without a doubt, outer space continues to capture the imagination of every generation. The final frontier holds the incredible mysteries of the universe. Whether it’s aliens, UFOs, or rocket ships, these socks keep your feet on the ground and up in the stars at the same time!
Sports enthusiasts and gym buffs know the importance of a good pair of athletic socks. Natural fiber and synthetic blends create a balance between comfort and sweat wicking tech so you’re always performing at your best.
Made with 80% cotton, 17% polyamide, and 3% spandex, these socks are soft, comfortable, stretchy and breathable. They don’t fade and hold up well from machine washing. Plus, they’re all-purpose and you can wear them with sandals, boots, sneakers, trainers, and even dress shoes.
The World Traveler
Our feet literally take us places. But now they can figuratively transport us as well. If you know someone gearing up for some serious revenge travel, gift them with some globetrotting designs, ranging from Times Square in New York, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, to Japan’s majestic Mt. Fuji.
The Little Ones
Our Tiny Alpaca series has a wonderful selection of super cute designs for the little ones. Get super value from our 4-in-1 and 3-in-1 Christmas themed sets. We’ve also got loads of designs featuring animals, flowers, and emojis for girls and boys ages 2 to 10 years old.
What could be better than seeing these adorable designs on their tiny little feet? And because kids grow up so fast, these socks make great gifts that are both fun and practical.
