Send a Smile with Novelty Socks Let Silly Socks Replace Greeting Cards This Year


When was the last time you shopped for a greeting card at your local big box store or drugstore? There should be a name for the feeling you get when you find the perfect card for your recipient, only to turn it over and see that it costs more than $6! “Bittersweet” doesn’t cut it.

After purchasing that card, paying for postage, and dropping it off at the outgoing mail box, you realize that the person you’re sending this card to will probably just toss it into the trash can after a week or so. You’re basically throwing money away just to send a heartfelt message! 

Foot Traffic would like to propose a better idea: send a pair of heartfelt socks, instead. Our novelty socks for men, women, and kids are suited to any personality and preference. Accompanied with a short note from you on regular paper or a notecard, they’re like a greeting card that can be enjoyed again and again. And best of all? They don’t cost much more than one of those mass-produced pieces of cardstock!

We like to call them “greeting socks.” When your loved one receives them, they’ll be wowed with the softness of the material and the crispness of the imagery on our novelty socks. And we’re betting they’ll call to thank you, with a big smile on their face. Let’s take a look at some of the best fun socks for women and men for any occasion.

Novelty Socks for Birthdays

Instead of sending a card, send a pair of socks instead. Want to add money or a gift card to your present? Tuck them into the cuff of the socks!

To choose the right pair of fun socks for your loved one with a birthday, think about their hobbies or interests. What colors do they often wear? Do they enjoy sports? Do they enjoy fine wine or a cocktail on occasion? When we say we have socks for everyone, we really do mean it! 

For example, for women who adore animals, you might consider novelty socks like:

Or maybe she enjoys relaxing with a cool cocktail and conversation! We have novelty socks for that, too:

And great news! We offer similar fun socks for men, too! Check out the animal-inspired:

Fun Socks that Say “Thank You!”

Having a reason to be grateful for someone really refreshes your faith in humanity, doesn’t it? When someone lends you a helping hand or makes another nice gesture, we often say “thank you,” and move on. But what if someone did something really big for you? Sure, you could write out a thank-you card and drop it in the mail. But, we recommend sweetening it for them just a little, perhaps with fun socks for women and men who make a difference in your life. Check out these gorgeous and inspirational socks!
