As we age we seem to take more and more for granted, but one thing that really grows is our value of socks as a gift. I remember when I was a kid getting socks for my birthday or as a present was utterly disappointing. As the years go by and I find myself in the same situation of being gifted with socks, my appreciation has relatively increased. Today if I were to get a pair, I’d be ecstatic. I don’t have to put up with a present I would disregard, or pretend to like it. Socks are simply a staple in ones life, so not having to buy them myself is a positive all round. When we are young we don’t understand the value of simple things like socks; something so simple but so necessary.
It’s pretty easy to rock some funky socks to work as well. It’s not too much crazy and not too little; it’s just the right amount. A burst of colour which shows your personality come through amongst the dullness of everyday clothing.
