Dads have been receiving socks for Fathers Day for many years but the foot garment has been around for considerably longer, a commentator has remarked.
A blogger known only as Samantha made her comments through the online resource InvestorSpot, noting that the very first socks
would not have been as popular with Dads as fun socks
"They were the skins of animals that were placed over the feet and tied up at the ankles. Thankfully for Dad, socks
were improved upon over the years," she explained.
Later on, people discovered that matted animal fur meant insulated feet and socks
became a little softer, Samantha continued.
At one point, possessing socks
was a sign of prosperity, she added.
Recently, online gift advice resource The Boutique Beat suggested that fathers are likely to appreciate small, thoughtful gifts such as socks
, mouse-mats and sunglasses – especially if presents are personalised
Socks make the perfect gift
