A cozy, comfortable sock can go a long way when it comes to gift-giving. Think about it. How many times a year do you venture out to buy yourself a really good pair of socks? Probably not very often, but also think about how many times you reach desperately into your drawer hoping to find your favorite pair but come up empty because they are dirty? Probably a lot. We have collected some great options that will keep you in good gift standing and keep your favorite feet protected from the elements.
