A True Stocking Stuffer

An unknown author once said that “true love is like a pair of socks: you gotta have two and they've gotta match.” How many mismatched and worn out socks do you find in your sock drawer even when you purchase those really nice designer brands?

For gardeners and those that love the great outdoors, when it comes to socks, one must dress for the occasion. Every sock is not created equal even though most of us have tried quite a few on the market. But by George, I believe I’ve found a keeper for the garden or outdoor nature lover - the Dahlgren sock. This is designed for the connoisseur of hardcore hosiery. Why if this was a fine wine, Parker would give it a 98.

It’s not too late to find a retail store to purchase this last minute gift under the menu key, BUY. So if you are looking for a truly awesome stocking stuffer, why not do it with socks. Dahlgren’s website says, “They take socks seriously.” So if you love your gardener, give them a serious pair of toasty socks.

P.S. Are you one of those folks with an unkempt sock drawer? Then you may appreciate Steven Wright’s dry wit. “I got up one morning and couldn’t find my socks, so I called Information. She said, “Hello, Information.” I said, “I can’t find my socks.” She said, “They’re behind the couch.” And they were!”
