SPOILER ALERT – look away now if you don’t want to ruin the surprise of knowing the contents of the SockShop Wild Feet Christmas Advent Calendar!
Firstly, I’d like to thank SockShop for gifting me this amazing advent calendar to review.
I can honestly say that I’d not heard of a sock advent calendar before receiving this one and it has certainly opened my eyes to another avenue of advent calendar in the future.
This big 43cm x 31cm advent-style gift box did not disappoint on December 1st, it actually bought a smile to my face, seeing a cheeky moose character on the light blue socks. The clear design and quality of the fit and feel of these socks were so cosy and soft that I wore then straight away.
Having now opened every door on the advent calendar I was extremely surprised with the variety of the fun and funky designs that were included in this gift. In my mind, they just got better day by day and there really is something in this calendar to suit every lady.
I love the combination of sock colours they’ve used, from subtle black, navy and greys to vibrant pinks, lilac, red and shades of blue. Couple that together with the superb woven character designs, like hedgehogs and llamas to a Santa with fluffy beard and a pair of gold glittery star socks and it’s a sock enthusiasts heaven.
The added touches of soft textured pieces and glitter on the socks certainly add to their appeal. Also, I must mention that some of these snazzy socks have glitter heel and toe parts to complete them. Absolutely dazzling.
The socks are made from a mix of 70% Cotton, 28% Polyamide and 2% Elastane, and can be machine washed at 40. The Wild Feet socks are made from a cotton rich blend of fibres in a soft, smooth weave for all-season comfort. They are available in UK ladies size 4-8 and with me being a size 6 shoe they fit me perfectly.
Even though I was gifted this ladies 25 Pair Sock Shop Wild Feet Christmas Advent Calendar, you’ll be pleased to know that they also stock a men’s version of this advent calendar, along with 12 days of Sock-Mas for men and women advent calendars, if you think 25 pairs of socks are too much.
This advent calendar retails at £79.99, which some may think is a lot, but if you break it down it’s actually reasonably priced, as it works out at approximately £3.20 per pair – not bad for some well made trendy character socks!
If you think that 25 pairs of socks are too many, you could always share a pair or two with your female relatives, like I have done with my daughter who has already claimed the pug snowman pair.
All in all I’ve absolutely LOVED opening this advent calendar and if you are looking for an alternative gift idea, this could be the perfect way to start the Christmas celebrations.
If you know someone who loves a jazzy pair or two of socks (like my Step Dad), then why not take a look at the SockShop Christmas Socks and Gift Set range and tick another box off your Christmas shopping list.
I’m really looking forward to wearing these superb socks over the festive season and following months.
