“There are plenty of advent calendars on the market to choose from, everything from beer to cheese however I can honestly say I’ve never had a sock advent to count the days until Christmas, so I was certainly delighted to review SOCKSHOP 25 Days of Socks (Ladies) calendar.

Firstly, the midnight blue box is gorgeous, it has a fun festive design and the doors are sealed together with a dark blue bow – bang on trend with this years Pantone colour – Classic Blue. The advent gives away no clues (apart from the fact you’ll get socks obviously!) of what design and colours you’ll receive.

Inside, I loved the fun, festive designs on each box, everything from snowflakes to reindeer and mistletoe, my feet were itching with excitement!

Starting with day one (even though I really wanted to head straight to box number 25) a pair of light grey super soft and thick socks with a Winter Hare design greeted me, they were gorgeous and brought a smile to my face and I put them on straight away.

Moving onto box number 24 (Christmas Eve) which for me, is always a day where I wear a brand new comfy outfit to settle down to a day of mulled wine and mince pies, was a black pair of socks emblazoned with a fun mistletoe and bow design, my feet really did feel like Christmas was here.

I love the combination of socks and patterns SOCKSHOP has used throughout, from subtle dusty ice blue to Christmas tree green, however, Christmas day’s socks were my absolute favourite – I won’t tell you what they are but expect full-on festive cheer!

The socks are made from a mix 69% Viscose from Bamboo, 28% Polyester and 3% Elastane, and can be machine washed at 40 degrees and come in standard sizes of 4-8.

Ladies, if you’re looking for a pre-Christmas gift, then this is certainly one to treat yourself with, however, if like me, these won’t last until December as I’ll want to wear them right now.”
