This blog post is sponsored by the Petty La Belles. This argument has been going on for too long and the thing is men are the ones fighting this idea because they want the ps5. Fine, we get it but if we are being real with each other a ps5 is a want and socks are an actual need. And so because we naturally have a motherly instinct in us we are only going to do the right thing. Here are 10 valid reasons why socks are a must!
- YOU SAVE SOME COINS MAMI!
In the words of a petty la belle, ‘smart women are financially savvy. Socks are useful, inexpensive and cute.’ If this isn’t wisdom. You do not have to break the bank for a day that comes and goes and tbh love can be shown in other ways!
- THERE IS VARIETY
This works very well if you have a man in every city ma. Different brands, different styles, and different designs and available in every city. There is no way that you are getting caught ma’am. I joke, all I am saying is you are spoilt for choice and that makes it so much easier. You are welcome.
- WINTER IS COMING
After summer comes? Exactly! And since men are the designated warmers, how will they warm your feet with cold feet? It makes no sense to me, so prepare them for their job and stock up on the stockings.
- YOU CAN WEAR THEM TOO
Lost your sock whilst at his place? Not a problem, open the drawer, pick a pair, wear and go. What is his is yours and what is yours is yours, teach them this at a young age and you will be great.
- THEY ARE CUTE
Seriously, have you seen how cute their feet are in socks, they are so adorable!
- YOU DO NOT SMELL LIKE DESPERATION
Men absolutely hate the smell of desperation and they can pick it up from a mile away. Ever been ghosted after gifting a man so well, I have and I know my mistake now. I will not repeat it! Take my advice and stick to the sock.
- THEY ARE SIMPLE
Men really love simple things and a pair of socks is the simplest thing on this earth. It conveys the, ‘I thought of you,’ message so well with zero confusion.
- EASIEST THING TO FIND
Our schedules always get crazy and it is possible to forget, these things happen. All you need to do is to walk into a shop grabs socks and walk out. That is it! Last-minute gift buying made easy.
- IT WILL HURT LESS WHEN THINGS GO SOUR
Imagine purchasing expensive things only to find out he is getting married to the love of his life the following week. Think about it, it has been happening a lot lately. You cannot get that money back and mans is balling on your budget, flaunting what he never bought and probably telling people that he bought it. No ways!
Socks will wear out and develop holes as his wifey washes them and all you lost is a dollar or two. Fair and square! Can’t be healing from both a heartbreak and a robbery, love yourself ma.
- THEY ALL WEAR SOCKS
Not so great at gifting, it is ok here is one every man can use.
