sock of the month Subscriptions: The Gift That Keeps on Giving (and Smelling Good)!

Can we all just agree that there’s nothing worse than stepping into your laundry basket, or reaching into your dresser drawer, and pulling out an old, stinky pair of socks? Sure, they’re comfy to wear around the house, but let’s face it: they smell bad! That’s why sock subscriptions are such a great idea...if you can find one that sends out scented socks, that is! Here are five creative ways to fold your socks that will help you find your own sock subscription service in no time!

How your sock subscription came about

I’m Ben, Founder of Sock Club. I am a serial entrepreneur that has been working in e-commerce since 2005. A couple years ago, when doing laundry for my wife and I who both work full time, it took way too much time to fold socks. That’s when I thought hmm, there must be a better way! After a couple months of research and planning we created Sock Club. Today our subscribers receive an exclusive pair of socks every month with no added shipping fees! Here are 5 reasons why you should check out Sock Club today...

Why you started it?

Whether you choose to go with all vanilla or keep it citrusy, sock subscription services have something for everyone. Love scented soaps? Soapbox is your best bet. Looking for gender-neutral scents? Birchbox has you covered. Want to try out new fragrances every month? Scentbird is a great option for smelling like a million bucks without spending it. Finally, if you want to feel spic and span, look no further than Scent Trunk.

How do you choose between all the fantastic scents?

Perfume is a tricky gift to give—it’s hard to find one that smells good on every person, but has a scent you love. Perfume subscription services solve that problem by allowing customers to try before they buy—you can rent fragrances from different companies, pick out new ones, and return/ exchange them. Best part? No matter which service you choose, your socks will smell fantastic all year round!

What are your top 5 smells?

Socks are notorious for smelling bad, especially if you wear them a few times in a row. There’s no shame in swapping out socks when they start to smell, but if you can take your socks from smelly to smothering, why not? Here are five ways to spruce up stale foot aroma and keep them smelling good. If your favorite way isn’t listed here, feel free to share it in the comments below!
