Gifts for Kids

Cosy socks

Whether you’re constantly moaning at them to put their slippers on, or you have a little one who feels the cold, a pair of cosy, snug socks in winter time can be just the thing to keep little toes warm. We love these Christmas themed, fleece-lined Rudolf the reindeer slipper socks – you could even buy a pair for everyone in the family! These Totes super soft slipper socks are ideal for snuggling down in front of the TV with, and with one pair containing grips on the soles they are safe for excited little toes on Christmas morning. Our toy box monster socks have a plush 3D purple monster on the foot and non-slip soles – perfect for your own little monster on Christmas morning!

Favourite characters

We couldn’t put together a gift guide for kids without including some of the best-loved TV and film icons. Whether your little one loves Marvel, Disney princesses or Minions, we’ve got all their favourite characters covered. We particularly like these Star Wars themed socks with R2D2 and C3P0 featured. If Spiderman is more up their street then they will love these Marvel socks.

Happy socks

Our Happy Socks selection is just that – designed in cotton by a Swedish manufacturer for breathable happy feet, with great patterns for kids ranging from bunnies to dachshunds. We love these dinosaur-themed Happy Socks – they’ll have your little one roaring with glee on Christmas morning.

Sporty kids

For children who love sports the right sock can make all the difference to their comfort. For football fans, these Umbro League Football Socks are designed to look like professional football team socks and have breathing vents to keep feet dry and cool. If you have a skier in the family then these Alpine ski-pro socks will be right up their street; designed in Finland with multi layers for comfort and warmth, they are suitable for all abilities and will be a great addition for a seasonal holiday. If your family loves geocaching, hiking or rambling then a pair of these Finland hiking socks will be perfect to keep their feet warm, dry and comfortable on longer distances. 

Whatever your little ones are interested in, whether they’re still toddling or are out and about forming their own adventures, our Christmas gift guide for kids will have a pair of socks they’ll love, and that will last them well beyond the big day itself. Don’t leave little toes out in the cold this Christmas, make sure that Santa’s sock quota is on the list.
