Christmas and men are a tricky combination; for me it gets harder every year to buy for my Dad, and equally for my brothers. The first factor is that they both ‘have everything’ and secondly, their interests have narrowed in their advancing years. However, one gift that never fails to raise a smile or acknowledgement of good use – is socks, but not your standard multi-pack from Topman. Step forward this year’s gift boxes from The London Sock Company. There is a great selection of sock gift boxes to choose from £18, but these two really stood out.
The first is the excellent ‘Sip in Style’ exclusive gin & sock gift in collaboration with Sipsmith gin, pairing three of the brand’s favourite sock styles, with three of Sipsmith of London’s finest gins and each luxury set also provides a limited edition booklet of style and tasting notes. What’s not to love about that?!
The second is the unique ‘Simply Sartorial Video Box’
Which incorporates a personalised video gift message (recorded by you, and applied at check-out) that plays when the box is opened. The brand does stress if you’re a little camera shy, don’t worry as model and investor David Gandy has already recorded a few words on there for you. As for the socks, this box includes a rainbow of their finest stretch-fit Scottish Lisle cotton socks, in a beautiful range of 15 block colours.
