The Sockshop gift guide

Posted by SockShop

You can’t go wrong with a pair of socks for Christmas. They’re a failsafe present if you’re stuck for ideas – they’re comfy, cosy, and last much longer than a box of chocolates. But with such a huge selection on offer, where do you start? Read on for our gift guide on the best socks and tights gifts to treat their feet this Christmas…

Gift Guide

For him
Fed up of seeing him in old, holey socks? Treat him to a fresh pair to smarten up his sock drawer.  Buy a suave gift box of suit socks to add a bit of pizzazz to his work outfit, or go for a themed pair featuring his favourite film – whether it be Superman, Star Wars or Sonic the Hedgehog. If he’s a bit of an outdoor adventurer, invest in some high-quality walking socks for maximum comfort while he’s out on a hike.

Want something a bit more special? Our British-made socks are made from the finest material to ensure your feet are as cosy as they can be – think cashmere, mohair and even alpaca.

For her
What is it about cosy socks that makes such a great present? From fleece-lined bed socks to dog-themed slippers, there are plenty of options for the woman in your life this Christmas. Keep her warm with a pair of festive slipper socks, or buy her some super-sweet animal socks featuring her favourite creatures, be it cuddly pandas or adorable penguins.

Want something different? Our super-soft winter tights come in a variety of styles, from cosy Heat Holders thermal tights to merino wool and bamboo. 

For kids
It’s hard to dress up a pair of socks as anything but what they are, but these superhero socks have done it. Complete with a cape, our Batman and Superman socks will have your little ones flying round the house – just make sure you’ve secured the crockery first.

Kids not into superheroes? Our cosy knitted fairy and monster socks come complete with fun 3D characters, while our Disney princess socks are pretty popular, too.

Gift Guide

For the new parent…
Forget style – comfort is the priority for any new parent at Christmas. Think thermal socks or slipper socks for optimum cosiness, perfect for slipping on while they’re chasing their little one around the house. Help them get a good night’s sleep with a Totes eye mask and water bottle gift set – a present they’ll truly thank you for.

Help – I’m buying for the person who has everything…
Our one-of-a-kind gift sets and special designs are the ideal present for everyone. There’s plenty to choose from, from luxury cashmere bed socks and cosy hot water bottle sets to our magical Harry Potter collection – just make sure you pick the right house badge…
