Father’s Day is just around the corner. This day marks an occasion to celebrate our dads, stepdads, grandads, in-laws or any other father figures in our lives and thank them for everything they do. After all, without them, who would change our tyres, remove spiders from our bedrooms and crack the same corny jokes that we roll our eyes at but secretly cherish? This Sunday the 20th of June, show them how much you love and appreciate them with a special gift.
The trouble is, dads (and men in general) are notoriously hard to buy for. Ask them what they’d like and odds are, they’ll shrug nonchalantly and tell you they’re not fussed. But despite this apparent indifference, the reality is that everybody likes getting presents – men just aren’t great at articulating what they want. And whenever they do have their eye on something, 9 times out of 10 it has already been ordered on Amazon.
This year, say it with socks. Socks are the perfect gift for dads who have everything, and because ours are interest-based, you’ll find a pair full of thought and sentiment in our range. All of our socks are premium quality and made in Europe using the finest materials for a luxury look and feel. We also donate a pair to homeless charities for every pair sold, so you can shop with a conscience.
No two dads are the same. That’s why we’ve come up with a comprehensive Father’s Day buying guide to guarantee this year’s gift won’t spend years gathering dust in the attic.
Is your dad up at the crack of dawn on every family holiday, loading up the rental car for a jam-packed day of activities? Does he religiously eat muesli for breakfast each morning? Does he shame you for being a hungover mess on a Sunday? Your dad seems like the (slightly smug) outdoorsy type, who ditches the beers for the intoxicating aroma of fresh air. Help him go the extra mile on his next adventure with a pair of speciality hiking socks from our Wild Atlantic Sock Collection. Our outdoor socks are full of thoughtful details, designed for comfort and endurance in rain, hail or shine. We have three styles to choose from, each with its own distinct feel. The Alpine sock is an all-weather number with padded soles, made from authentic Merino wool to keep toes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. For an extra snug fit, go for our terry-loop-lined Arctic socks instead. And if your dad is a real creature of comfort, treat him to a pair of our thick Tweed Wool hiking socks for unrivalled cosiness. You can grab four pairs for the price of three on our site today, so he’ll always have the perfect pair for every pursuit.
The Footie Father
Does your dad hijack the remote every weekend for a 48-hour Sky Sports binge? Was he standing proudly at the side-lines of every youth soccer match with a camcorder in his grip, ready to capture your big moment? Sounds like he’s probably fond of the football. Indulge his nostalgic senses with our Retro Football Shirt Sock Collection, which is inspired by iconic kits throughout the decades. Our range pays homage to UK and European clubs as well as international teams around the globe, from Liverpool to Mexico and in between. Make it even more memorable with a 3-pair Gift Box which can be fully customised according to your dad’s sporting allegiances. He will be instantly transported back to the good ol’ days every time he slips them on, and reminded of what a brilliant son/daughter he has. Or he’ll forget who bought them for him almost immediately. Either way, he’ll be a happy man. All of our retro football socks are made with soft-touch, breathable cotton for easy, everyday wear.
The Dapper Dad
Does your dad have a man crush on David Beckham? Does he shake his head in disapproval at the sight of your favourite baggy tracksuit pants? Does he get suited and booted for a trip to the local supermarket? For these men of style and sophistication, only our Luxury Sock Collection will do. Our Wild Atlantic dress socks are the perfect complement to a smart ensemble, adding a finishing touch that completes any look. Each pair is carefully crafted using the finest fabrics, from delicate cashmere to cool cotton. Whether your debonair daddy favours understated chic or a bold pop of colour, we offer patterns and colours to suit all personal tastes. Style doesn’t come at the expense of practicality of course, and our luxury range features our signature snug fit with elasticated tops for all-day comfort. Mix and match 3 pairs and we’ll arrange them in an elegant gift box for free.
Make it personal this Father’s Day. Whether your dad has a thirst for the outdoors, a fever for football or a passion for fashion, you’ll find the ideal gift for every lifestyle at SicSock. To shop the styles mentioned above and more, visit our online store today at www.SicSock.com.
