Admit it: You secretly can’t wait to take out that ugly holiday sweater Aunt Rose gave you last year. And what better way to complete you holiday look in 2016 than with a pair of novelty socks emblazoned with Santa and his elves?
There are plenty of choices when it comes to expressing your personal holiday style. Candy canes, reindeer and Santa himself are just a few of the popular icons making a show on this season’s round of socks.
These novelty designs cut across the genders, making them a great gift idea. They’re also affordably priced (starting at just $5.99) and make a perfect gift since one size typically fits all.
For those who prefer to show off their holiday style in a more discreet way, these whimsical socks are the answer. Unlike Aunt Rose’s sweater — which by the way, she spent all year knitting for you — they can be discreetly tucked under a pair of pants, revealed only after the third or four round of spiked cider or eggnog is served.
Want to avoid the whole ugly holiday sweater-sock issue altogether? Simply plan on taking a vacation and spending the big day in the Bahamas or Hawaii, where all that’s required is a swimsuit and pair of flip-flops.
