My family has not always been the most in-tune with my personal tastes when choosing Birthday and Holiday gifts, so I got in the habit of asking them to get me cute socks. This is why my sock drawer is stuffed to near-overflowing with enough cute socks to cover the feet of a small army. Truth be told, every pair gets worn eventually, because socks are one of the most perfect gifts you can receive. Two guys who are also hip to that fact are the ones who created the Sock Card from InStitches.
