Are you on the hunt for a practical gift for your father that doesn’t scream “I just bought this on my way over here?” If you’re struggling to find last-minute gifts for your dad’s birthday or another holiday, we’re here with a luxury present that all the fatherly figures in your life will cherish: a good pair of socks. Whether your dad is a bonafide fashionista or gravitates toward athleisure wear, the London Sock Company has gifts he can style for the office and formal events. The brand has countless styles in rainbow hues, eye-catching print fits, and materials to peruse from.
Maybe your jokester of a dad is one to freely showcase his spunky personality with a whimsical accessory. Or maybe he’s the kind of father who needs a little pushing to bid adieu to his white tube socks. Either way, his tried-and-true dad shoes will look a little more posh with a bright pattern or bold stripes. All of the designs within the London Sock Company are available to buy with individual pairs starting at $22, a pair of three beginning at $63, or a six-pair box for $126. They’re made from durable cotton with a hint of stretch, which means the high-quality socks stay up all day without shifting and feel super comfortable. In other words, it’s a gift the hardest person to buy for will actually use and appreciate — and we bet he’ll be impressed by your ability to scout something so chic yet so pragmatic.
Of course, ties are nice to be gifted, but realistically, they’re worn for little more than special events. Gift the fatherly figures in your life a pair of luxe socks they’ll treasure and boast about. The Spotlight Collection is the London Sock Company’s latest collab with celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati. The chic styles in eye-catching hues might even be your dad’s first step into the world of vibrant fashion accessories.
If you’re stuck between two styles, opt for a classic gift set. There are various aesthetics, from the one-tones you see above to a striped sunset theme. The combo is best to test out different styles and to get a real glimpse of what the London Sock Company offers.
Shop six-pair boxes that are designed for anyone who wears mid-calf length socks steadily throughout the week. Whether corporate attire is their weekly ensemble or they like to spice up their casual ‘fits with a stylish peekaboo detail, gift your best friend, father, brother, or significant other a new collection of luxe socks.
