As a guy, it is all but guaranteed that we will be unwrapping a few pairs of socks this holiday season. The go-to gift of extended family members comes at the perfect time every year, helping us replenish our footwear assortments to combat both the cold and our ability to never quite be able to locate a complete pair. Though for most of us, socks are much more difficult to keep track of to the point where we need a more continual tune-up. Luckily, there are sock subscription services that provide a solution to something we are always in need of and take away the tedious task of sock shopping.
Its simple. Every month, quarter, or even just once a year, sign up to receive a hassle-free set of socks that you dont have to give a second thought to. Most services ask in depth questions such as preferred sock height, colors, fabrics, and sizes to help ensure that even the pickiest of dressers receives the footwear comfort he needs. While others are as simple as a quick three clicks of your mouse for the man who is more go-with-the-flow in terms of his style.
