Receiving socks as gifts may have become the butt of many jokes, but with so many quirky and funny styles to choose from, they’re an easy and affordable way to share a laugh this holiday season. 

Since socks aren’t usually visible with most outfits, a colourful or outrageous pair can add a hit of personality to any look, even if the wearer is the only person who knows it. Sassy, snarky, or just plain silly, I’m a firm believer that everyone needs to have at least one wild pair in their wardrobe.

If you’re like me and love giving (and receiving!) socks, one pair that’s sure to win over any gift recipient combines two beloved Canadian motifs: cabin socks and wine. The If You Can Read This Funny Cotton Socks are ideal for gifting, and at just $18 for three pairs, are an ideal stocking stuffer for whole family.

Whether they’re a wine connoisseur or just a fan of a glass of red at the end of a long day, these socks are the perfect cozy companion for a relaxing night at home. Made from breathable stretch cotton, these socks keep feet toasty warm without overheating.

“These are great novelty socks,” shared one reviewer. “The text is woven as part of the sock, it is not applied on top of the fabric, which is great. Very cute and got a lot of attention over the holidays.”

“These have become my go to lazy socks. I also gifted the other two to my sister in law and mother in law and they both loved them,” added another.
