Sometimes things are popular just because they’re everywhere. Sometimes things are popular because they’re the best thing ever. When deciding on presents for your #FabDad, there’s an item of clothing that ticks both boxes and that thing – is a pair of socks. While they’re unlikely to result in a look of surprise on his face, the satisfaction of knowing he’s got the best Father’s Day gift there is will be a cracking Kodak moment. For almost all Dads, socks are a fundamental part of the day rather than a luxury. While that may sound negative, there’s no reason to fear a lack of originality when you’re buying Dad the best Father’s Day gift there is. To help you find the right pair for a Papa who’s important to you, we’ve picked the perfect pairs for a few different types of Dad.
Sporty Dads likely already have a selection of socks that encompasses a whole heap of shapes and shades, but once he’s gifted this most classic of sock styles – he’ll realise this pair was a glaring omission from his sock drawer. Grab some retro awesomeness, here.
As for the 9-5 dads… if his commute likely involves balancing an iPad mini on his crossed leg watching Luther, consider the flash of perfect sock he’s going to get once you’ve gifted him a pair of these?
Similarly, Hipster Dads whose shiny sneaker selection has been augmented by camo socks in cool grey will get a strong pang of family affection every time they clock someone eying them up on the high street. Pick up his pressie here.
Fine stripes for refined outfits are what the dapper Dad demands from his socks. Carefully curated shades of complementary colour combinations will give his outfits that refinement he craves and who better for it to remind him of that you? Find fine stripes here.
At the other end of the maturity spectrum, but no less refined (in their own way) are wacky Dads. Treading that thin line between brave and OTT is done best in socks that are as bright as the night is dark. Be his eccentricity enabler here.
Then for the big kid Dad who only sees socks as a chance to show allegiance to the Star Wars franchise, we have a pair as cheeky as the little droid they depict. Grab them from a galaxy not so far away here.
