Where To Find a Fun Gift For Dad - HemdVoorHem - Happy Men's Socks

Hi There..... Do you still need a gift for father’s day? What would you think of some men’s socks as a gift for dad? 

Bad Idea? No, not just an ordinary pair of men’s socks, of course. I was definitely thinking of something a lot more fun. Not just plain black or white, but some cool and colorful men’s socks. 😊

Ah, I know what you are thinking. Does she also have a fun story up her sleeve about plain socks? Of course, I do. What did you think?  😉

This week’s trip down memory lane is about my time in high school, about 40 years ago. It was a time when wearing a uniform was not at all out of the ordinary. 😇

Our uniform consisted of a light blue blouse, a navy blue pleated skirt, and long white socks that came just below the knee, and navy blue shoes. The school was pretty strict. They wouldn’t let us walk around with rolled-up sleeves or sagged socks. The teachers would do regular checks to make sure we followed the rules. 😏

I recall a springtime when it was so hot. One girl had gotten the idea to roll up her socks. The teachers didn’t notice, so by noon almost half of us had followed her example. 😁

I guess it caught the eye of our headmistress, though. She scared the wits out of us when she came running out of her office. Her face was all red in anger, telling us all to pull up our socks right away. Can you guess what happened? 😬

Not much. We were all very much afraid of her, so we pulled up our socks in no time. 😨

Time to tell you more about the fun gift I received from HemdVoorHem in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

They were packed so nicely in a gift box, but first, let me tell you a bit more about HemdVoorHem.

What are Happy Socks?

The name says it all, you can't help but be happy with Happy Socks! The Happy Socks for men and women are the same, you can choose from two sizes. Happy Socks will make you happy, and everyone else who sees them can't help but smile. The cotton stretch socks are known for their cheerful colors and striking patterns. An easy way to make every day just that bit more fun. Whether you wear them with a business suit or casual outfit, Happy Socks are fun for men and women. For yourself, but certainly also as a present.

Before I can share my thoughts, you need to know that the Happy socks in the boxes from HemdVoorHem are made of combed cotton. Uh, no, it doesn't mean you should comb them every day before wearing them. Let me share with you some information I found on jingsourcing.

What is combed cotton?

Combed cotton, literally is combed, leaving long, straight cotton fibers only by removing short fibers and impurities to make the fabric stronger and softer. It is a very soft version of cotton, making combed cotton very suitable for sensitive skin. 

It also pills less than regular cotton and is also more durable. It dries easily, is more absorbent, and is anti-odor. 

What did I think?

These 2 pairs of socks were in my gift box. Don't you just love them? I don't see why men's socks can't be fun. They are made at calf's length from combed cotton. You could feel that especially the inside is a lot softer than regular socks. 😍

On top of that you get a famous Tony's Chocolonely bar, what more could you want. I can't promise I am not going to steal them from my hubby. 😂

But trust me, when you get those easy to use shirt, father would love it. So I'll definitely go to to check it out.
