Sock Grams {Review & Giveaway} Trick or Treat their feet!

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Carol W!}

It isn't even October and Big Sister E is already very excited about Halloween this year. I think by the end of her multiple outings trick-or-treating a year ago (in the mall, at the library, our neighborhood, etc.) the concept of dressing up = candy finally sunk in.

And really, candy is pretty much what Halloween is all about. Which I always find fine... to an extent. Why is it that I'm the one around here still eating it in March? With the overabundance of sweets at holidays year-round, it would be nice to have a unique little way to celebrate that didn't involve calories and sugar. Something, perhaps, fun and soft and cute? Something like the creative and bright gifts that have made Sock Grams the site to go to when you want to send a sweet surprise or a greeting card with something extra.

With socks to fit every interest, pattern or color preference, Sock Grams is truly a unique concept and website. Instead of just sending a loved one a simple greeting card to wish them well or Happy Halloween, you are able to choose from designs for men, women and children and have them sent right to the front door of the lucky recipient.

What's involved? You choose the style of socks and a personalized greeting card and they will be wrapped up with a little packet of foot balm and sent on their way. No fuss, no hassle and your gift will arrive a short time later.

Let me tell you, even though someone might wonder what is so great about a pair of socks waiting in your mailbox, opening this little package really is a fun experience. Considering I knew they were coming, surprising a family member or friend with a Sock Gram would really be a treat.
In perfect time for me to be able to wear for the next month and a half, the black and white of the Skull and Crossbones Checkered Socks were a great contrast to the bright orange paper they came wrapped in. After unwrapping and marveling at the fun design ("I like your pirate socks, Mommy!" Big Sister E immediately said), all that remained was to take them for a test drive.

Soft, stretchy and comfortable, I had plans to wear these socks continuously from now until Halloween until, as is common around here, I had to give them up for other people to take a turn.

Clearly Halloween socks from Sock Grams are a big hit! However, if spooky footwear isn't your thing, don't forget that there is a seemingly endless collection of others to choose from. Everything from women's food and drink socks to men's humorous socks to the cutest socks for babies and kids, you'll find that you just might have to end up sending more than one pair from not being able to decide.

For a creative and unique way to let someone know you're thinking about them, do more than just a card - send a Sock Gram! Prices vary on the different styles, but most retail around somewhere around $11, so this isn't a gift that is going to break the bank. Plus, thanks to the generosity of Socks Grams, one person is going to have frightening tootsies for themselves or a loved one, because...

One lucky person will win a Halloween Sock Gram
for themselves or to send as a gift!
