How to Gift Holiday Novelty Socks the Right Way


Foot Traffic Socks Make Unique Holiday Gifts for Women, Men, and Kids

It’s 2020, and as the years progress, so does sock technology and design. Gone are the days that teenagers open up their holiday gifts and pretend to be thrilled with a package of plain white socks from Grandma. Modern socks are way more exciting, and dare we say more thrilling, than the cotton tubes of yore.

The novelty sock game at Foot Traffic is on point, so you’ll never see disappointed faces opening packages filled with our fun and silly socks for the whole family. In fact, our socks make amazing gifts for the holidays and are ideal for gifting in all kinds of ways. Bring a smile to your gift recipient’s face and joy to their feet with a pair of novelty socks from Foot Traffic.

Novelty Socks as Stocking Stuffers

The easiest way to gift novelty socks is in your family members’ stockings! Silly socks are the perfect stocking stuffer because of their size and affordable price. They’re also a thoughtful departure from the same types of stocking stuffer gifts you’ve given each year, like candy, toothbrushes, gift cards, scratch tickets, or small games, for example.

We love:

Hang Novelty Socks on the Tree

If Santa visits your house, perhaps he participated in a little Christmas tree decorating! Rather than wrapping socks with other items or adding them to a long list of stocking stuffers, make the giving extra special by hanging them like ornaments on your tree.

The crisp images and bright colors on our novelty socks will stand out from the evergreen branches and other ornaments, so your family can easily spot them and find the pair that’s meant to be theirs.

Foot Traffic Socks in a Countdown Calendar

There are eight days of Hanukkah, so why not give eight pairs of socks to your loved one? Just like the Maccabees didn’t run out of oil, your gift recipient will never run out of socks to wear.

You can also give a pair of socks each week leading up until Christmas – or a pair each day leading up until Christmas if you really want to go big! Give socks for the 12 days of Christmas, between Christmas Day and Three Kings Day or the Epiphany. 

Let’s illustrate an example with one holiday in particular. For example, for Hanukkah, include:
