When gifted, the humble sock gets a bad wrap. It’s a stigma that’s (probably) been around as long as the art of gift-giving itself, but why? A sock is practical, warm, beneficial to foot health—and it’s also not an item one enjoys spending their cash on. To help wean giver and receiver off this taboo is wine subscription service Good Pair Days, who’s partnered with fine sock purveyors MANRAGS to bring your old man the ultimate drop and sock pack this Dad’s Day.
There are four expertly-curated packs to select from. Each comes with wine, Egyptian cotton socks, tasting notes, food pairings, recipes and guaranteed ‘favourite child’ points.
First up is the no-fuss Shiraz & Socks Box at a modest $39. It does exactly what it says on the label and includes one bottle of universally-loved Shiraz which is matched with a pair of premium cotton feet tubes.
For those wanting a few bonus points, up the ante with the Classic Dad Red Wine & Socks Box. Three certified classic bottles of red and three pairs of socks. $84. Not bad. Not bad at all.
If you’re feeling generous, level up on your siblings with Wine Lover Dad Reds & Socks Box at $123. For this one, Good Pair Days will pair three top-quality bottles with, you guessed it, three pairs of premium Egyptian cotton socks.
For siblings who’d prefer to pair up themselves, go halvies in Deluxe Dad Reds & Socks Box at $164. For this one, Good Pair Days will dip into the reserve cellar and match three very special bottles of wine with a pair of socks for each.
Just like Good Pair Days and their host of options, MANRAGS is aware that every dad is different, so you can stress less knowing that the socks are made to fit sizes 7 to 13. Shipping is also free on every Good Pair Days x MANRAGS Father’s Day Box—nice one.
