Socks in a Box (His & Hers) Review by Mel – January 2019

Well I was not expecting this lovely box this month, so when Socks in a Box arrived alongside 2 others, I was so happy! No complaints here, I love socks, definitely happy post day to me. Thank you again Mark and Anna. The man of the house is a very happy one indeed!

The box arrived via Royal Mail, and my postie just laughs at me now. You are the box lady? Yes I am known already after only 5 months of living here! This is definitely a letterbox friendly delivery, but as I had a few other parcels he knocked on.

I love that the design is not trying to be anything other than ‘Socks, in a box’. For boxes like this they always get recycled and therefore they do not need to be bright blue or shiny print. The logo stands out, while showing everyone who handles it what they are about (free advertising). It is clever and simple.

If you missed my live unboxing, you can watch it back either on our Facebook Group, or by clicking play below on our YouTube Channel…

So whats in the box?

2 Pairs of stylish funky socks! One for men which are suitable for sizes 7-11, and one for ladies suitable for sizes 4-7!

The socks are all made from quality cotton and include a “hand-linked toe” which means that the seam around the toe is flat and is therefore more comfortable to wear

The leaflet inside contains a quote by Connie Willis, it did make me laugh. I mean who on earth puts on wet socks?!

Rob’s are multiple squares, checkered. Really bright and funky with a grey trim.

Mine are really different this month, I have trainer socks. Is that a hint I need to hit the gym? (I do!). They are white, navy, grey and bright pink stripes.

How does it work?

We have been sent the brand new ‘Couples’ sock box, but there are lots of different options if you just want to buy for yourself, your partner, or even a gift for a friend/loved one.

We have an EXCLUSIVE discount code, ‘BOXESSION15’ will get you 15% off ANY of the above plans!

You get a little personalised note inside that you can have added to every box if it is a gift. As you can see from mine it says ‘here is your 2nd 2 pairs’. If you were to buy someone a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, they are going to see a note like this from you every month!

Trying out the goods…

I can honestly say that last months have been worn for a month, well obviously not every day, that would be weird. But every time they have been through the wash they are the first to be selected from the drawer. They have held their shape and look just like new.

You would think by now they may be showing some signs of wear but no. We have both had our new pairs on today, I love that the toe area is more comfortable and you don’t feel squashed up when wearing them. I also have no ankle sock marks at all when wearing mine. Rob is really slim so never really suffers that anyway, but he does usually get them falling down instead! These do not do that either.

Our Verdict?

There is something for everyone with this subscription? Only socks I hear you say! No, because we all wear them every single day. How annoyed are you when you get a hole in a pair after only wearing them twice? Or they wash and go threadbare? If that sounds like you then this subscription is definitely for you.

You could definitely purchase these as a gift for anyone. I always say that they are the gift that keeps on giving, as if you buy a 3/6/12 month sub, they are getting a gift from you every month. They are reminded of that every time the box arrives too.

To put this into perspective. If I was to buy Rob a 3 month subscription (2 Pairs per Month), using our discount code it would be £27.19. That is £4.53 per pair. When you consider the quality, the unique design and the convenience that they arrive straight to our door, that is a bargain.
