The seasonal displays at your local home improvement or grocery store aisle may have turned over just after Labor Day, but it is indeed that time of year again. We at Boardroom have put together a holiday gift list of some of our favorite items for the stylish sock lover in your life.
Our six-pack gift boxes are a regular feature in our holiday gift guide, and with good reason. Here’s an excellent opportunity to introduce someone to Boardroom Socks. Our classic solid options in either merino wool or extra-long staple cotton covers the bases for someone getting into premium hosiery. Or, if they favor a little more spice in a pair of socks, we’ve got patterned and striped options as well.
This year introduces a few new designs into our lineup, including the box assortment shown above which has quickly become a customer favorite.
Sight and sound are frequent stirrers for holiday nostalgia, but scent can play an important role too. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire? A turkey and some mistletoe? You get the idea. The fantastic aroma of cedar is part of the reason we launched our luxury boxes when we did, and only part of the reason he’ll love one this holiday season.
Made by a woodworker local to us here in North Carolina, this truly premium experience features 12 of our best sellers in fine merino wool in either over the calf or mid-calf. Versatile neutrals in charcoal and heather grey, navy, khaki, brown, and black. Bolder (and definitely seasonal) burgundy and purple. And, for a more whimsical take on the holiday season, sky blue and bright red. Our boxes are also offered in some of our popular patterns, highlighted in the video below.
Not just for someone who’s been extra nice this year, this is an excellent way to give two gifts in one and overhaul a sock drawer.
The holidays are often a time of transition. As one year ends, we begin to look forward to the next-starting or trying something new. Here at Boardroom, we’ve recently launched some dots, knots, and a host of striped options in unexpected color pairings.
With many available in both mid and over-the calf options, we’ve got something for the adventurous guy who looks forward to putting some flair in his outfits.
Here at Boardroom, we carry more than just dress socks. A pair of our best no-show socks work wonders as a casual workhorse or when you’re looking to go for the ‘sockless’ look with sneakers on the weekend. These socks aren’t designed just for men; we’ve found women love them too!
Or, if someone is feeling particularly patriotic, our American flag socks are breathable, soft, and exceptionally durable.
Our stocking stuffers also extend beyond socks. Any gent who’s serious about his footwear wouldn't dare slip into a pair of dress shoes (or leather sneakers, for that matter) without a shoe horn. We carry an 8” metal model perfect for slipping into Dopp kits or a carryon bag.
We also believe socks should be looked after just like any other garment. That’s why we designed laundry bags for them! They can hold up to six pairs. Not only will it keep your new socks together in the wash (and stop you from losing them), but will save the wool from abrasive pilling after frequent washing.
Versatility is one of the hallmarks of a well-dressed man, and having the best quality of something you’ll use every day is smart shopping. In the case of something like a sock, better quality holds its shape and color longer, and ends up being a better value in the end.
Consider restocking your basic sock collection (blues, browns, greys)-but in superior materials. Better materials hold their shape and color longer, and add a certain ‘something’ to even a basic outfit. And, if you purchase multipacks of these, you’ll be able to save at an incremental discount. It ends up being a far better value in the end.
Sometimes even a clothes horse has everything. Or, sometimes a last-minute gift is needed for Uncle Ned. In this case, a gift card is the perfect option. Available in amounts from $25-$200 and delivered via email without extra processing or other fees attached, it’s an easy and convenient option to give the gift of style, made right here in America.
If you're a little unsure of where to start, be sure to explore our simple guide on how to buy dress socks. This article outlines the three most important items to take into consideration when shopping for men's socks. And, of course, our team is always happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to reach us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or toll-free at 855-379-7625.
A few additional notes this year. First, we do recommend placing orders by 18 December to ensure delivery by Christmas. For these later orders, we do offer expedited options at a flat rate of $6.95 (US customers only).
Best wishes from our family to yours for a wonderful holiday season!
