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

Well I was not expecting this lovely box this month (this is my 3rd box), so when Socks in a Box arrived again, I was made up! No complaints here, I love socks, definitely happy post day to me. Thank you again Mark and Anna. Rob said ‘Ooh more socks, really like those’, so a Happy Man too!

The box arrived via Royal Mail, as always in the Letterbox friendly box, letting everyone know exactly what is being delivered… Socks in a Box of course!

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.

This months designs are:

Robs are a deep Teal colour, with a mustard and navy blue trim. The pattern on these is actually raised so they feel great too and very unusual

Mine are bright pink with white polka dots and a baby blue trim.

The reverse have washing and care instructions.

This months quote is by Stephen King. ‘It’s hard enough for a person to keep their own socks pulled up, let alone someone else’s’. I can’t say I have ever tried to, but I like the quotes they are fun! Socks are fun if they come from this box!

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…

We now have 6 pairs of these socks, 3 each. 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. I would own 66 pairs, honestly I can tell you that they are the best I have owned. I am NOT just saying that because I am reviewing the box either!

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.
