The holidays aren’t complete until everyone has received a pair of socks. They are the perfect stocking stuffer and no one has ever turned down a brand new, cozy pair of socks, crisply folded and waiting to be worn for the very first time. Maybe as a kid you might have been disappointed by socks when what you really wanted was toys, but adults know that socks are the best gifts. Practical and fun. And customized to suit every recipient on your list.
Injinji Women’s Ultra Run Crew
These socks are perfect for runners. Constructed to provide comfort and support even after miles of wear, they feature cushioned terry throughout the entire foot and toes, to help soften the impact of tough runs and workouts on feet. The narrower profile is designed specifically for the contours of a women’s foot—the five-toe design prevents blisters, splays toes naturally and wicks away moisture.

Ideal for work or wearing around town, this set of four pairs of Everyday Lightweight Crew socks comes packaged neatly in a gift box. Made from breathable cotton, sturdy nylon and stretchy Lycra, these socks protect feet from blisters and hold up to friction.

Another nice gift set, these socks have smooth toe seams, so you’ll never get that “pebble in your shoe” feeling. To make them really special, you can have them monogrammed with the recipient’s initials.
