The Best Sock Subscriptions for Every Budget

The Best Sock Subscriptions for Every Budget

It can be difficult to buy gifts for the men in your life, whether it’s your father, your husband, or one of your friends. Men tend to have an aversion to shopping, so they usually already have everything they need (and some things they don’t). But with SockBox, you can send him a monthly package of socks he never knew he needed but now can’t live without. Here are our top 3 sock subscriptions for every budget

A subscription to surprise socks

For men or women, socks subscriptions make for a fun surprise every month. One of our favorites is Nice Laundry, which provides three pairs of socks per month: one pair is classic in style; one features wilder color combinations; and one serves as an ideal base layer. However, if you’re looking to save some cash, sock-of-the-month club prices are often far less than a typical monthly subscription box.

A subscription to your favorite brand

Whether you subscribe to one sock brand or you subscribe to many, there are a few things to keep in mind before signing up. First of all, what kind of socks do you prefer? Cotton? Smart wool? Polka dot? Patterned or plain colors? What about thickness—cotton socks run thin, but wool socks might be just your thing. You’ll also want to consider price; some subscriptions will cost more than others. Since most sock subscriptions fall into the monthly service category, they tend to be affordable enough that even if you buy a few pairs each month, it won’t put too much of a dent in your budget. Just make sure you take into account how many pairs you wear each month—and think hard about how long they last.

A subscription that brings you whatever you want

Have $500 to spend? You can get socks that cost $40 each. And if you don't like those, you'll get a new pair every month! There are two different sock subscription services out there, so do your research and choose which one is right for you. (Update: Or, instead of subscribing to a sock of the month club, try having a pair made just for you.)

A monthly sock club with discounts

This is an idea that’s been taken to a new level by Bombas, a company that provides high-quality socks and donates a pair of socks to those in need for every pair sold. They have multiple levels of sock subscriptions that provide discounts on future purchases based on your level of participation. This can be a great option if you want cool socks delivered each month but aren’t interested in overspending—there are options starting at $12/month with free shipping! Of course, there are other ways to go sock-crazy. You can take care of all your sock shopping with one monthly purchase at checkout: Threadbear provides not only stylish and colorful socks but also surprise tees, shirts, hats and more at affordable prices.

A box full of men's socks

Choose your budget and whether you want to receive cool socks in a variety of designs or just plain black dress socks. You can also choose between knee-highs, crew-length or no-show socks. Boxes range from $9 - $50 depending on how much customization you want. The best part? No subscription fees and free shipping!

An accessory subscription box full of socks

If you can’t tell, we like cool socks here at FashionBeans. We wrote a review of Bespoke Post’s socks back in October, but we feel that they deserve a special mention here as well because of their unique approach to sock subscriptions. For one thing, you’re not limited to any particular style or type of sock when subscribing; instead, they curate unique styles based on your preferences (i.e., people who love Japanese brands will be sent socks from Omoiyari; skiers and snowboarders might receive Bacon socks). The styles are also rotated each month (except during sale months), so it’s worth checking out every month just to see what new additions have been made.
