5 reasons why socks are the perfect gift this Father’s Day


We’re all familiar with the struggle of trying to come up with a new, inventive present idea for Father’s Day when all your Dad can suggest is ‘I don’t need anything, I have everything I want’.

Rather than relying on his favourite tipple or the shower gel that everyone buys him for his birthday and Christmas, why not treat him to something different that he can enjoy for months to come?

We may be a bit biased but we think socks are a great gift idea and here are some reasons why:

1. It’s useful!
A recent YouGov survey found that people actually prefer practical gifts, and men are twice as likely to prefer a practical gift than women!

2. Socks are unique, just like him
Lots of people love wearing socks to express themselves without making too much of a statement. Whether he likes something practical, something more fun and graphic or a bit of both you can find a sock that will suit his tastes exactly.

3. You can never have too many!
Socks are something we wear every day, they become something you will never want to be short of! Receiving a new pair is always welcome and can add an element of excitement to your wardrobe.

4. It’s not something we want to buy ourselves
The best presents are ones that we would not buy ourselves, and who wants to go out and buy socks at their local clothes shop? By making it an exciting gift you can change what would usually be a routine purchase into a more exciting gift.

5. Make your gift last longer
With a sock subscription you can extend your gift beyond being a one off, treat Dad to a new pair of socks every month for up to a year! The gift that keeps on giving!
