The Gift of Socks: 3 Ways to Give the Gift of Cozy Feet
Fun socks make gift-giving so much easier!
Have you ever found yourself in a gift-giving situation with no idea what to buy? It happens to everyone eventually. No matter how well you know someone, there comes a time when you're fresh out of ideas. And when you don't know the person at all, where do you even start? That's when you resort to -- dare we say it? -- the ubiquitous gift card.
"Let them pick out their own gift," you grumble as you set the gift card on the checkout counter. "How am I supposed to know what they want?"
There's a Better Way
We think there are better gift options out there. How about a pair of cute themed socks or fun tights for women instead? At Foot Traffic, we're all about fun. We've built a business creating crazy socks, colorful tights, and cozy leg warmers that jazz up people's lives. They add interest and excitement to everyday events. Our legwear makes a great gift for any occasion.
Don't get us wrong. We love a gift card to our favorite store as much as the next person. But we think you can do better the next time you have to choose a gift for someone. Check out the ways that people will sing your praises when you give fun socks from Foot Traffic to someone on your gift list.
Hail to the Chief!
National Boss's Day is coming up on October 16. This holiday was started back in 1958 by a woman who, at the time, worked for her father. She picked that date because it was his birthday. The holiday makes a little more sense now, doesn't it?
While not everyone loves their boss, most employees appreciate or respect them at a minimum, realizing that bosses do a lot behind the scenes. They keep the team moving forward to meet goals and build success. If you're looking for a way to score brownie points from your boss this year, why not celebrate Boss's Day with a pair of funny socks from Foot Traffic?
Here's how it might work. If the boss is a little crotchety at times, he might see the humor in a pair of our men's Bah socks. A boss known for her sharp wit who packs a little attitude might like a pair of women's Catitude socks. For a boss that continually misplaces things, we have Lost Phone socks. And for bosses who use a lot of emojis and smiley faces in their emails, you might want to purchase a pair of Emoji socks. 😀 And there is always a true winner, Big Dill as a fun compleiment.
Of course, funny socks aren't that funny if the person you're giving them to doesn't have a sense of humor. Use good judgment when giving our socks as presents. We don't want you to get fired. On the flip side, if your boss loves his or her new socks, maybe you'll get promoted instead!
A Day to Celebrate Socks
National Sock Day is sort of a Valentine's Day for socks. The holiday's creator decreed that all correctly matched socks should be celebrated with their own day. After all, this doesn't happen very often. It must be true love if these socks keep finding their mates wash after wash. That kind of unity and solidarity deserves to be honored and celebrated!
As you might imagine, National Sock Day is one of our favorite holidays. It's coming up on December 4, so you have plenty of time to pick out your favorite pairs of themed socks before the big day. Our unique designs, colorful patterns, and imaginative themes make our socks easy to match up when they come out of the dryer. They're the perfect choice for this holiday and the ideal gift for anyone on your gift-giving list. Won't that person be surprised when you hand them a present on National Sock Day?
We have a lot of options to choose from to make your gift purchase easy. We have animal socks for those with tender hearts. We have socks for all kinds of hobbies and occupations, too. Gift your favorite tax preparer with a pair of Accountant socks. Or maybe you want to honor your favorite doctor or nurse. We have socks for them, too! If your friend is into music, they might like a pair of Dancing Notes or Musical Strings socks. We have so many to choose from, you'll want to give a pair to everyone you know. You'll suddenly become everyone's best friend!
The Holiday Gift Exchange
Let's face it - holiday gift exchanges can be a little painful, especially if you only see your weird Uncle Billy once a year. It's hard to buy an inexpensive gift that's useful for someone you don't know very well or see very often.
We have that problem solved. Our crazy socks, printed tights, and long leg warmers go over well at any holiday party. It's the season to be merry, and for women, a pair of tights with patterns is just the ticket! From animal patterns like zebra stripes and jaguar spots to something more conservative like polka dots, we have your gift covered. If your cousin is perpetually chilly everywhere she goes, fleece-lined tights might be in order. Or maybe a pair of thigh-high leg warmers would be a better option. Men are not forgotten here. We have a ton of men's novelty socks to fit every personality. In fact, there are so many patterns and colors you may find yourself purchasing some for yourself. What a great way to break the ice and get the family talking after months of not seeing each other!
