If you’re looking for a gift idea for your favorite sock enthusiast, or if you just like getting new socks, try Gourmet Socks! You can choose from different themed packs such as comfy socks, packable socks, everyday wear socks and even wild socks.

6) Gift Cards To The Stores They Love

A lot of our readers at Philosockphy have asked us to look into sock subscriptions as a gift idea, which we're excited about. But if you'd rather get your loved one something related to socks that doesn't involve buying them more socks (just yet), why not give them a gift card to their favorite store? If they love Target, purchase a gift card through their email list. If you know they prefer Amazon Prime, create an account and add a subscription to their Wish List. Or check out Etsy or any other handmade marketplace to purchase something unique they might like. The possibilities are endless! Just make sure you send it directly from the merchant's website so they can use it right away!

7) Have Fun With DIY

If you love giving gifts but hate standing in line at mall stores, consider giving a DIY sock subscription. Search Etsy or check out BigCartel to find creative crafters who make stylish socks that are also practical. For instance, Philosockphy sells whimsical designs like robots and giraffes that are warm and comfy enough to wear year-round. And if you aren’t quite sure what to get a sock lover, an assortment can be just as fun as one specific design. Treat someone special to a pair each month with a sock of the month club. Treat yourself with a new pair every week with no commitments. It's up to you! Just remember: when it comes to receiving gifts, less is more when it comes to quantity; more is more when it comes to quality! That way, they'll always have something new and exciting (and comfortable) waiting for them on their doorstep.

8) Find out what they already have (and then get it if you can!)

If your gift recipient is a huge fan of socks, odds are good that they already have plenty of them. Searching for gifts can be difficult if you’re not sure what people already have. Many websites (like Amazon) will recommend products that are similar to ones someone has previously purchased. Use these sites to quickly narrow down a list and then go from there!
