The big day is just around the corner. You’ve picked your best man and groomsmen to stand by your side, the details are all falling into place, but one thing remains on your lengthy wedding checklist…the groomsmen gifts.
This time-honored tradition is one that shows your appreciation for those mates who have been there for you through the ups and downs and who will always have your back. But what do you get the best gents in your life?
You could go with tried and true classics such as flasks, watches, or engraved keepsakes. But if you want to truly be unique, include something that shows off your personality or give them alone as a personal and fun replacement for more expensive gifts.
How about something a little different. What about Groomsmen socks? That’s right, socks. Before you knock the idea, let’s take a closer look at why groomsmen socks are taking center stage as a leading contender for groomsmen gifts in 2020 and beyond.
Why Groomsmen Socks Might Just be the Perfect Gift
Socks are fun, comfy, and functional
Socks are an all-around great gift. They are soft and provide warmth to your feet. They can be visually appealing and fun to look at with different colors and unlimited patterns. Need we say more?
Any groomsmen will appreciate a fun pair of socks
Buying a present for someone can be a source of stress. Does your groomsman even like collectible action figures or is he too old for them now? Does he need more candles or household appliances? Does he like sweets or chocolates? You don't have to stress out at the store trying to specifically tailor your gift to the groomsman's age, or preferences. Everyone loves socks.
One size fits (mostly) all
Unlike other articles of clothing that have specific sizes, socks generally cover a range of several shoe sizes for a wide range of foot lengths. Pants are nearly impossible to buy for someone else if the receiver isn't there to try it on.
Shirts can be too tight or look too baggy if you get the incorrect size. If you aren't sure what your gift receiver's body measurements or sizings are, you can just get them some socks and they will most likely fit!
You can give them for any occasion
Socks are perfect for any event. Socks can be an additional gift to another present, or they can stand on their own as a fun and useful gift.
They are inexpensive
Sometimes you want to give a gift that doesn't put a dent in your wallet. When buying socks for a groomsman, you can also buy a few extra pairs to keep for future gifts or yourself.
Sometimes you need to get gifts for several people such as at a work party or for your nieces and nephews at your next family function. You can get many gifts at once and they can still all be different types or have different designs specifically for the receiver!
The options are limitless so you never have to give the same thing twice
There's the classic solid color socks, ones with cool designs, stripes, buttons, and different levels of fuzziness. Some have words on it, some have dogs, fruits, or famous people on it. There are also different shapes from no shows all the way to thigh highs and everything in between.
You can find them anywhere
If you're in a hurry or need a last-minute gift, you can find socks almost anywhere. You're sure to find at least 5 different stores with various sock selections if you go to your local mall.
If you need more variety, there are sock stores that only carry socks! GoTie’s Atomic Socks offer a wide range of sock styles with lots of personality and swagger, and can easily be ordered online.
Socks can be a conversation starter
Whether you flash an ankle to a new friend on the street or take off your shoes at a party, your socks can be a great ice breaker or talking point if they're fun enough! For example, if you have socks with a golden retriever's face on it, you are sure to have any dog lovers or potential golden owners to comment on them.
Given the many reasons why they might just make the perfect gift, we think socks are well worth consideration for your groomsmen. Even if you plan to give another gift or personalized item, they are a perfect complement that is sure to add some style and swagger to your big day. Find your style and order today - that’s just one less thing on your to-do list.
