Socks For Christmas

November 11th, 2017 at 01:03 pm

Have you ever heard the story Socks for Christmas by Andy Andrews? I was given a copy of the audio version probably 15 years ago by a friend, along with a pair of socks. In fact, I think our entire family received socks from this friend. It made an impact, my girls still love to get socks for Christmas! As do I.

In my extended family, we adults have been known to exchange socks for Christmas. Smart Wool socks are a favorite. In the last couple years we have not been together on Christmas and have also ended our required gifts to each other. This year, however, I'm inspired once again to give socks for Christmas. These will go to my parents, sister and brother in law.

I got a very decent deal on socks at Kohl's last night. These are not our traditional Smart Wool socks, but a very nice Gold Toe dress pair for the men and a soft warm Cuddle Duds pair for the women. After three coupons applied, I paid $4.17 for the men's and $4.42 for the women's. I also picked up a new pair of slipper socks for myself for $5.21.

I plan to attach a tag with some words about socks and my memory of giving them socks in the past at Christmas. I told my husband my plan and he had a big smile on his face, because he knows how much fun we had giving each other socks in the past.

Small, simple gifts given from the heart often mean more than an expensive gift. What gift have you received that touched your heart?

    I've never heard of the book but I've collected socks for seniors through an organization one year and donated them to a nursing facility. The seniors were so happy.

    Haha, AS and I were just talking about how we wanted socks for Christmas! I used to be about gadgets and toys and entertainment, but now I appreciate gifts that are practical and provide comfort.

    I like any gift that shows thoughtfulness, from homemade stuff to things that reflect what I like. Last anniversary, AS made me a necklace with a shrinky-dink charm with the name of my favorite band's last album, and NT bought me a 45 of one of their songs and put the cover in a really nice picture frame so I could hang it up! I was so touched.

    I think it was the year before last my son got 30 pairs of socks for Christmas! He was a little overwhelmed!

    I love socks - especially the thick comfy ones. My feet are always cold.
