HEY GUYS

What Your Socks Say About You…..

We love men’s socks—stripe socks, beer socks, flag socks—all kinds of fun novelty socks! You just have to smile when you see a man in fun socks. And don’t forget, just like your tie tells a story about you, so do your socks!

WOO-HOO! FREE SHIPPING!

 

Why Wait In Long Lines When You Can Shop Online?

During the holidays it is so fun to shop online and seek out those “just perfect” gifts for friends, family, co-workers, neighbors etc. You avoid the long checkout lines, the parking frenzy and the sale-crazy people that fill the malls and big-box stores. However, once you select your items online, get the items in the “cart” and see the total, the shipping is sometimes as much as the items!  Spoiler alert!

New Year’s Eve: Keeping it Simple

Kissing by the Fireplace...in socks

“What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?”

There is an expectation that we should go out, get festive, and ring in the New Year with fireworks, dancing and partying. I admit I have enjoyed this monumental event of kissing at midnight, confetti, champagne, and celebrating long into the next day. But these last few years, by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, I do not want to plan another thing, eat more food or drink more wine. I have come to enjoy the quiet that follows the rush of Christmas and I guess I would rather just merge into next year rather that do a “party plunge.” I am grateful for good health, a wonderful family, and great friends and prefer to just relax and reflect on the past year.

Slip into something comfortable this winter- SLIPPER SOCKS

Foot Traffic Slipper Socks

No wonder slipper socks are one of our top holiday gift items!

They are all about comfort, and pretty darn cute as well.  When I come home from work and rip off my shoes or boots, I look for the most comfortable socks I can find to slip into. I don’t like heavy slippers and have found total comfort in my new slipper socks. Having hardwood floors, I appreciate the no-skid pads on the bottom of the feet–totally comfy and totally practical.  Only $8 a pair, all of my girlfriends are getting these adorable socks as a gift this year. The only decision I have to make is who gets what pair…and what pair do I keep for myself?
