10 Reasons I'm Hooked on the Sock of the Month Club
10 Reasons I'm Hooked on the sock of the month Club
As a part of the sock of the month Club, I’ve been given a pair of socks every month for the past two years, and I’m here to tell you that it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. There are so many reasons why I love my socks subscription, and I want to tell you about them all! Read on to learn about 10 reasons why I’m hooked on the sock of the month club!
1) Fun Colors and Designs
You might not think it, but socks can be pretty fun. And cool! There’s no denying it; if you aren’t getting a pair of socks at least once a month in your sock subscription, then you are missing out on some great looking socks. Cool sock subscriptions are filled with awesome designs from all kinds of brands and companies. One subscription may send you new athletic socks every month; another may send dressy dress socks for formal wear. The possibilities for design and color combinations are virtually endless when it comes to these monthly deliveries. If you need some great-looking new socks for your wardrobe, look into a sock subscription service—and be prepared to get hooked!
I love socks. And there’s something really gratifying about a fresh new pair of socks, especially when they’re a fun pattern. However, my current sock drawer is overflowing with old ratty pairs that need to be tossed out before I can buy more. The sock-of-the-month club saves me from wasting time sifting through my piles, trying to decide what kind to wear each day. Just drop it off at my doorstep and let me pick each month!
Most sock subscriptions send you socks that have been made in China or Taiwan. These mass-produced socks are cut, dyed and sewn by machines and can be made from synthetic fibers like acrylic. The sock of the month club sources all its socks from countries like Italy, where manufacturing quality is more valued. All their socks are made by hand and they come in a variety of colors and styles. Most months you’ll get to choose your style, but even if you don’t make it that far into a box before it’s gifted (this happens), your giftee will receive a mix of cute patterns sure to impress everyone else in their gift circle.
A good pair of socks can last a long time. It's hard to tell when your socks are beginning to wear out. Sure, they might start getting holes in them, but that's a bit late. When you get new socks delivered every month, you can see if any pairs have holes before they start wearing out your shoes and potentially your feet! I’ve had pairs from various sock subscriptions for as long as two years without holes or obvious signs of wear.
5) Unique Choices
Have you ever gone to Target and realized there are 5 pairs of your favorite socks in their $5 bin? Now imagine a world where they were all different, not just colors but patterns and designs as well. Fun socks are hard to find—unless you're part of a sock-of-the-month club like me. Some people don't want to go through all that effort, but trust me, it's worth it. Take my sock club for example: every month they send me two new pair of quality funky socks (that I wouldn't have found otherwise) AND a discount code for 30% off my next purchase from them. No one else will have these exact same socks, and you can guarantee no one else at your office will be wearing them!
6) The Just for Me Experience
A sock subscription makes getting socks every month (almost) as exciting as Christmas morning. So many color and pattern choices! Such cute packaging! Such fun, cool socks! How often do you actually get socks for Christmas? It’s no wonder sock subscriptions are one of the most popular beauty boxes today. My favorite part is that they introduce me to new brands. Some months it’s a classic brand, while others its a unique indie brand—but either way, there’s something fresh in my inbox each month. Plus, it’s hard to beat opening a package filled with gifts for your feet—especially if said gifts are beautifully wrapped and ready for gifting yourself. Now that's what I call giving back.
7) Low Investment, High Reward
The first benefit to signing up for a sock-of-the-month club is that it's an extremely low-investment way to find socks you love. For less than $15, you'll have at least one new pair of socks every month. That's only $1 a week and definitely worth it if you love getting mail and variety in your life. With so many options available, there are tons of great options for men and women alike who want something cute under their boots or dress shoes during cold months!
8) A Little Something Special
When my fiancé and I started dating, he had a pair of cool socks for every occasion. There were cozy ski socks for skiing in winter, bright-colored beach socks for a day at the shore and more formal dress socks (that look really sharp with a suit) that he wore on business trips. Then one month, it was my turn to pick out his sock of the month gift. When he opened up a package and found that it was even more pairs of super cool socks, well, you could have knocked him over with a feather...or some really great socks! It might sound cheesy but sometimes these sock gifts feel like they're just something special in your life.
9) Easy Gift Idea/Surprise From Yourself
No matter what a special someone is into, it's always fun to get them a surprise gift. If you're looking for an easy but special gift idea for your boyfriend or girlfriend, sock-of-the-month clubs are ideal. The two companies that currently have cool socks in their catalogues include Stance and Bombas. The problem with those clubs is they will only ship to U.S.
10) Cool New Pair Every Time!
When was the last time you felt like a kid on Christmas morning? That’s exactly how it feels when my sock-of-the-month club delivery arrives at my doorstep. Every month, it’s like Christmas again. There are a few things in life that we really shouldn’t give up, and socks is one of them. Whether you enjoy novelty or performance socks, or both—it doesn’t matter. The sock subscription service is such a simple concept that every sock-lover should be involved with one. From brands to designs to color combinations, you can almost always find something that fits your preferences if not your personality entirely! And if not, there are plenty of other companies out there ready to fill those needs.
