Sock Mail: Why These Fun Socks Make Better Gifts Than Just Another Greeting Card

If you’re anything like us, you probably buy a lot of greeting cards. It’s not like we buy them all at once, but so many events and holidays need their own greeting cards. Birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, weddings, get well soon, thank you cards, Valentines Day, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and just about 50 different events during the Christmas season! Even if you don’t end up buying cards for all of these, it still adds up quickly! So listen, we’re not against greeting cards or anything (we have a whole collection of greeting cards that are actually pretty cool), but we know they can get pretty old. It’s easy to find yourself wishing there was another option.

Luckily for you, there is! We’ve got something in mind that has all the essential marks of a greeting card replacement. It’s got a variety of fun, funny, and heartfelt messages you can choose from to personalize your gift. It’s small enough to fit (pretty) easily inside an envelope. It’s affordable enough not to break the bank. Any guesses? You might be surprised (unless you read the title of this blog, which you probably did, so I guess you probably aren't surprised?), but we think SOCKS are a fun and charming alternative to greeting cards!

See, here is the great thing about socks: they’re actually useful (and stylish). Greeting cards, while nice, just end up in the trash or some drawer, but most folks wear socks every day! For the price of 2 greeting cards you can give someone a gift that will be 100 times more memorable and useful. Seems like a good deal to you? If so, read on to see some of our favorite socks for every occasion!
