For just £3.95 when you purchase any four pairs of socks from our Build A Gift Box selection at seriouslysillysocks.com we'll display your thoughtful gift set in this beautiful "sock drawer" gift box made of fully recyclable materials.
Afterwards the sock gift box is fully reusable! Being unbranded (save our website address discretely printed on the underside) it makes an ideal storage box for costume jewellery, trinkets, nick-nacks, screws and nails, your life savings, a list of hopes and dreams or half a dozen golf balls....
Here's how it works in 3 simple steps:
- Click on the green BUILD A GIFT BOX button
- Select any four pairs of socks from the selection provided and add them to your Gift Box by clicking + ADD TO GIFT BOX
- Pay for your order (the price you pay is £3.95 + the price of the socks)
We'll then pick your order, arrange the socks you choose in the gift box, pack and ship! We ship same day for orders received by 2pm Monday to Friday with weekend orders shipped on the following Monday.
It's that simple but we know you might want to know more so here are the most popular questions:
Q: Is the gift box of socks for men or women?
A: Both! You decide what socks make your women's socks gift box or men's socks gift box. If you want to put two women's pairs and two men's pairs in a box as a gift for a couple then that's okay too!
Q: How are gift box socks packed?
A: We pack the gift box of socks in a protective outer box and we pack that in a waterproof polybag made of recycled plastic.
Q: How much is shipping (the socks delivery)?
A: Tracked shipping is free in the UK with faster and next day delivery options available for a small additional fee. Tracked shipping to Europe, the USA, Australia and the rest of the world is also available for a fee (options shown at the checkout). To find out more visit our "Shopping" page.
Q: Can you send the box to the gift recipient instead of the purchaser?
A: Yes you can select a different delivery address for your order if you want us to send the gift box directly to the recipient. You can write a message to the recipient in the order comments/ message box at the checkout
Q: What if I order more than four pairs of socks?
A: If you're ordering more than four pairs of socks only the four that you select for the gift box you build will be packed in the gift box. Any other socks ordered will be packed separately.
Q: Can I order more than one gift box?
A: Yes! If you are ordering two or more gift boxes we'll pack the right socks in each gift box that you build!
Q: Can I order less than 4 pairs of socks?
A: No sorry, you can only buy the gift box when you order four pairs of socks from the selection presented.
Q: Can I order any design of socks in your store?
A: Any combination of socks is eligible except for over-the-knee, welly, sofa, slipper, tights and similar size socks which won't fit in the box. If in doubt get in touch and we'll do everything we can to make this work for you!
Q: Can I order different brands to go in the same box?
Q: Can I order four pairs of the same sock design/ colour?
Q: Can I order only the box with no socks?
A: No sorry, the box is subsidised for customers purchasing seriouslysillysocks and it's not cost effective for us to ship only the empty box! The minimum purchase of socks to go in the box is four pairs.
Q: I have a question you've not covered here, how can I contact you?
A: Easy! Mail us using our "Get in touch" form OR email us at firstname.lastname@example.org OR call us on +44 (0) 1663 308180

Caring for socks won’t be top of most people’s minds when doing the laundry but great socks (and tights) deserve proper care to help them look fabulous, feel great, and last a long time! We recommend always to follow the care information on the packaging the socks are delivered with. You might also find this guide helpful:
Bamboo and Cotton fibres
Machine wash at 30°c is best but we know socks get thrown in with everything else at 40 and that will usually be okay. The most important thing is to avoid tumble drying if possible which is likely to cause some shrinkage. Ideally dry socks naturally and stretch back into shape when removing from the washer.
Sheep Wool, Merino, Alpaca, Cashmere Blend and Fluffy Socks
Ideally hand wash or if the socks are especially valuable then you might even consider dry cleaning. If convenience and time leads you to machine wash then a short and gentle low temperature wool setting is essential to minimise shrinkage.
Never use a tumble dryer but instead stretch socks back into shape and dry naturally. For hand washed socks it’s best to dry flat, the amount of water still present may stretch a sock left hanging on a line or airer.
Machine washing is out of the question for luxury Cashmere socks. Gentle hand wash and never use a tumble dryer but instead stretch socks back into shape and dry naturally and flat.
