Posted by SOCKSHOP

Here at SOCKSHOP, we love perfect pairs, and what better way to show your devotion to the special someone in your life than with the perfect matching socks? Sure, you could opt for matching t-shirts or jumpers, but how often will you really wear them? Socks, however, are a subtle but creative way to share the love. 

Maybe you want matching socks to show off the interests you share with your partner, be it TV, films, or music? Or, perhaps you’re looking for a cute and cosy token of affection? Either way, you go together like socks and sandals (it’s cool, okay?), so keep reading for our guide to the best matching socks for couples. 

We’ve even included a few of our favourites…

A match made in heaven

Whether you’re looking for a cute way to keep it matchy with your significant other, or you’re shopping for the perfect couple’s gift for friends or relatives, matching socks might just be the perfect choice. First of all, you simply can’t go wrong with giving a good pair of socks, and buying two matching pairs makes the gift all the more personalised. 

At SOCKSHOP, we’ve got a range of socks featuring just about everything you can think of. We’ve got hobbies, animals, your favourite bands or fandoms, and more! With so much choice, you’re bound to find the right pair to melt their heart and make them smile.

Whilst you’re shopping, keep in mind that many of our socks are categorised by gender on our website because that’s what most shoppers are used to. But with socks, matching or otherwise, there are no rules! We have a range of sizes across our website, and you can use our handy size guide to help. Our motto is - if the sock fits, wear it!

Keeping it cute and cosy

If you and your partner’s favourite activity is cuddling up on the couch with a movie, matching slipper socks are an absolute winner. There’s just something about a good pair of fluffy socks that never fails to spark joy, and what’s better than being cosy together? 

Picture the scene: it’s a Friday night and the popcorn is at the ready, you’ve finally agreed on what to watch, and you can’t imagine how the evening could be any better until your partner gets down on one knee and presents you with…a pair of swoon-worthy bamboo slipper socks with extra-soft feel and non-slip grip soles. If you didn’t already know it, you’re certain now that they’re a keeper.  

We also have a whole collection of Heat Holders slipper socks, which come in plain, patterned, and novelty designs featuring your favourite movie characters. So, whatever you and your partner are into, you’re bound to find a pair you’ll both want to wear. 

Did you know that barn owls mate for life? For a pair of socks with an extra sentimental message, why not go matching with a couple of pairs of our super cute bamboo owl socks to really tug at their heartstrings? If you both love furry friends, you’ll find plenty of socks for animal lovers on our site too. 

For another meaningful gift option, you might want to take a look at our Pride collection. At SOCKSHOP, we firmly believe that love is love, so wear those rainbow socks loud and proud. -We even donate a portion of the profits from some of our socks to the LGBT Foundation, so you can don your matching socks in support of a cause that’s close to your hearts.

Game, set, match!

Perhaps you’re a couple who like to stay active together, or love nothing more than an outdoorsy day of hiking. In that case, matching socks can be a cute and functional gift. There are many specialised socks suited to the requirements of different sports, and buying a pair for each of you is not only practical, it also acts as an invitation to spend more time together doing your favourite activity or playing your favourite sport.
