You hop out of bed with a big grin, walk to the kitchen counter and pour yourself a warm glass of milk to go with a plate of cookies. Are you wondering why it’s acceptable to gorge on cookies for breakfast? The answer stands behind you, draped in a fairy lights, tall and green, your magnificent Christmas tree. Christmas is on its way and it’s your time to play Santa to your circle of friends. If you have trouble deciding what to get your friends on the nice list, well we might have a little magic product. It’s a pair of socks!
Here are 5 reasons why socks make the best Christmas gift!
1. It’s practical and cute!
Socks aren’t just another Christmas gift left on the mantel or a box of chocolates, forgotten after consumption. It’s a lasting reminder of that Christmas. Each time your nephew or your little brother slip on the socks you brought them for Christmas, they not only think of the comfort they offer but also the early morning race to open the gifts, the delight they felt when they saw those cute firefly socks and most importantly they remember you!
2. It’s warm and fuzzy like Christmas
Have you tried slipping into your cosy socks on a winter night and watching a marathon of Bridget Jones movies with a hot cup of cocoa? Well we can assure you it’s one of the best feelings in the world. They make your feet feel toasty and warm, just like the warmth you feel when you hear carollers singing to the tunes of ‘Silent Night’. So this Christmas gift your friends a companion for their Christmas movie marathon. Knock their socks off!
3. Because sock puppets
Socks aren’t your average Joes. There is so much more to them! There is a secret character hidden in each one. You can stich a button on one and stick some cool hair extensions and you have your very own sock puppet. So if your friend has been awaiting the arrival of his own Mr. Socko, you can now make that dream a reality with just a little bit of accessories and a lot of sock! It’s time to pull your socks up.
4. The Big Sock
Throw those Christmas stockings away, it’s time to bring in the big sock. It can serve as your very own Christmas gift basket. You can stuff the sock to the brim just like Santa’s gift sack and place it under the Christmas tree to surprise your family.
5. Even the Wizard World agrees
Socks aren’t just a big deal here but also in a faraway land filled with house elves, wizards, witches and wands. From Dumbledore to Dobby, the power of socks is undeniable. When the prime proprietor, Dumbledore, bestows a superior honour on the sock species by admitting that all he wants for Christmas is socks, it’s difficult to ignore it. So get your friends some socks and free their inner Dobby.
