You may recall being a child anxiously waiting for the holidays to arrive. You might have been hoping for that new toy, video game system, or whatever the latest and greatest item was that year, only to wake up and tear open a sweater or worse, a pair of boring socks. Why on Earth would anyone gift socks? That’s a fair question to ask especially when you were younger, but we could argue that receiving socks is a great thing. Don’t believe us? Here’s why!
So Many Choices
The days of plain white socks are gone. There are endless options ranging in color, size, design, and even socks for you pop culture junkies. Socks now feature your favorite movie characters, musicians, food, and emojis. There are plenty of options to choose from!
Unless you are planning a big surprise (hint: wedding bells) or plan on breaking the bank on some designer wear you can’t go wrong with socks from a price standpoint. Stores typically offer a better price point the more you buy and be on the lookout for a buy one get one sale.
If there is one given with clothing it is that everyone needs socks (and underwear). At some point towards the end of your own laundry cycle, you may struggle to find clean socks. Having an extra pair or two while you wait for your Rinse order to be returned to you isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And given that we wear socks almost daily, it is always good to replace some of your older and more beat up pairs.
Grab some tissue paper, a holiday gift bag, or wrapping paper if needed. Either way, socks are easy to wrap for those of you who are not particularly great at wrapping gifts.
Make It A Tradition
Now that socks are an outlet for expression, start a new tradition by gifting someone some crazy socks or make them a fun add-on to your main gift. Try to top yourself each year by finding a new outlandish design. They will always be practical!
Happy Holidays and Happy Rinsing!
