There is no denying the fact that the holiday season is a stressful time of the year. However, when it comes to gift-giving, we think we have a solution that will allow you to relax and make time for what’s really important. We may be biased, but we are pretty certain that socks are the easiest way to check off all the gift recipients on your list. Socks are the perfect stocking stuffer, work-appropriate white elephant, 8 days of Hanukkah present, or add-on for a gift basket.
Now, we’re not talking about the plain white tube socks you absentmindedly throw in your cart while running errands on the way to the gym, nor are we referring to the gaudy holiday-themed socks your great aunt purchased for you that you will likely be wearing for the first time a full year later when you go to see her. No. We’re talking unparalleled craftsmanship and creative designs you can’t find anywhere else. Join the TU Collective and shop our favorite socks for holiday gift-giving.
For Her: Socks that Will Make her Smile this Holiday Season
As we age, the holidays become less about frivolous desires and more about practical solutions and everyday necessities. Socks are a lovely balance of both. We require them with most footwear, especially during the winter time, when temperatures drop and the wind picks up. But they can also be enjoyable to give and receive. For women, we’d suggest a hint of sparkle, something extra cozy for snuggling by the fireplace, or a chic style she can wear for staying warm with heels.
The Mere: Our First Cashmere Crew
Just released this month, the Mere is an unexpected taste of luxury. If you are looking for a gift for the one who has everything, this cashmere crew is it.
The Flour: The Ultimate Comfort Sock
Designed with stripes to emulate a sporty aesthetic, the Flour gives the typical “fuzzy sock” a stylish update. Don’t be surprised if she never takes them off.
The Star: The Statement Shimmer
One cannot expect to get through a holiday gift guide without a bit of shimmer. Our Star ankle design is the type of statement piece that can transition from the holidays to New Year’s to spring with a quick shoe change.
The Cirque: The Subtly Chic Glitter Sock
You can’t go wrong with this ankle style. The thick vertical stripes are classic, while the wink of sparkle elevates her winter wardrobe.
The Casey: Intro to Intentional Pattern Mixing
Okay, last sparkle option. We promise. But the Casey is just too good not to share. Intentionally mismatched, the print is playful in a mature fashion, a design that never feels outdated.
The Luxe: The Winter Basic
Every woman needs a pair of the Luxe crew socks, especially during the winter time. The Luxe is elegant and classy yet can be worn scrunched for a more casual vibe. They will easily become her go-to socks all season long.
The Mur by Ayca Deer: A Twist on a Holiday Classic
Yes, those are deer on our socks. No, none of them have a red nose. Our Deer crew socks were designed in collaboration with artist Mur by Ayca, who pulls inspiration from Celtic-Scandanavian art. Within this genre of art, nature is often reflected in bold, geometric motifs, as emulated in our Mur by Ayca Deer socks.
For Him: The Socks that Make Gifting For Him Effortless
If the men in your life lean towards a more creative lifestyle, you may find it difficult to choose gifts they’ll really appreciate. You can’t recall their favorite band or songwriter of the moment. You wouldn’t dare choose a piece of art without consulting them first. The things you think are cool are too mainstream for their taste. That’s where we come in. Our men’s sock styles are catered to the artistic minded consumers who don’t always follow the trends but expect a certain standard of quality and individuality in their everyday accessories.
The Everyday Gift Set: The Basics that Aren’t So Basic
The Everyday Gift Set includes a few of our best selling men’s styles. If you have absolutely no idea what to get him, we have you covered (and his feet covered, too).
The Pitter Patterns Gift Set: The Artist’s Staples
If the man you’re shopping for has a slightly eclectic style, the Pitter Patterns Gift Set might just be the perfect choice. The Cozy crew has a groovy, psychedelic design, while the Leo is a refreshing version of your classic leopard print, and the Susie is a conceptual adaptation of something overtly traditional.
The Dress Gift Set: Styles He’ll Want to Get Dressed Up For
Dress socks don’t have to be the type of designs you are used to seeing on the golf course. An edgier, more sophisticated rendition, our Dress Gift Set includes three styles he’ll definitely want to show off.
The Robbie Simon Sundae Melt: The Modern Art Enthusiast
Known for his bold and vibrant use of color, abstract forms, and deliberately curved lines, Robbie Simon uses our socks as a canvas for the Sundae Melt. If your gift recipient is a fan of modern art or supporting creators, this style is a must.
The Beholder Peepers: The Comic Con Ambassador
Trevor Girard of Beholder gets his inspiration, in part, from the world of comics. Our Peepers design is essential for the comic book lover in your life.
The Shining: A Man’s Turn to Sparkle
If he is a horror movie stan, he’ll likely appreciate the name. Like the movie, the Shining crew sock incorporates a shock factor. Unlike the movie, the shocking surprise is a trace of sparkle in the knitted fabric rather than Stephen King’s haunting psychological thrills. As long as he likes to stand out, he’s going to love the Shining.
