Wrap Your Feet In Matching Socks For Couples
Socks are one of those garments, much like underwear, that the majority of us own and most of us wear but there are a few people that prefer to go commando. Socks serve many purposes and these include sleeping in or lounging around the house instead of or with slippers. They are beneficial for your feet when worn with shoes or trainers and you would most likely get some odds looks from turning up in a suit, shoes but no socks. Obviously there are also time when socks don't necessarily work, for most women wearing a skirt and shoes to the office would be combined with tights although certain socks can combine well with a skirt or dress. Wearing socks with footwear such as slides or flip flops has divided opinion but many consider it a fashion faux pas. There are many novelty socks of many different varieties which can be fun and those that have been produced as a set for couples.
This range of items that have been designed with couples in mind include a large number of clothing, jewelry and various accessories which means there is something for everyone who want at least one item that matches. Generally, if it is available to buy as a separate item you should be able to find it as a set of two. Many things in this niche such as certain clothing split opinion on whether they should be worn in public with a lot of people finding it cringe worthy. However there are plenty of other items that get most people approval such as anklets, phone cases or even bedding. Socks are one such an item within this niche that come as a set and are one that are a little more discreet than say wearing a shirt.
Most of the time garments that come as a matching set will be either chosen and purchased by a couple together, or more likely bought as a gift from one to the other. Perhaps traditionally socks are one of those usable but boring presents you will always seemed to get at least one set of as a child but these are different. Depending on the design chosen they can be a lot of fun and romantic and coming as a set means you are forming a connection. While a plain pair may not be that exciting, a pair for you both will be and with the many celebrations throughout they year actually finding new and unique gifts often becomes impossible. These would work well as a present for many occasions such as Valentine's day, Birthday's, Christmas or Anniversaries.
As well as being fun to look at, they are more than just a fashion accessory and play an important role in helping your feet stay healthy for some reason of which we can see below.
- Your feet have around 125000 sweat gland and produce around half a pint of liquid every day. Without socks this would end up in the shoe leaving your feet vulnerable to infections such as athlete's foot and leave a smell that will stay in the shoe forever. A good sock will absorb this moisture, helping to keep the feet dry and healthy.
- Wearing shoes without socks means you skin is rubbing against the shoe all day which can cause painful blisters.
- A sock the provides the correct level of padding will protect the skin and soft tissue and reduce the stress felt on the feet that comes from gravity and the impact of walking.
- As you walk or run your feet will expand, elongate and flatten which means they are constantly changing shape and socks will provide protection from the shoe as this occurs.
- In cold weather they keep the feet warm and protect against possible chilblains.

Later in life after falling in love it will be with your partner who you also being creating memories with, from your first date to your wedding day. The love you have for them can be expressed in many ways from a few simple words to expensive gifts. Expensive gifts are not common occurrences for most people but often simple thoughts can show just as much thought and love.
A simple gift outside of the normal festivities in which you give presents let them know you are always thinking of them and planning out ways to keep them happy or are ways of saying thank you.

Alternatively if there is occasions that take you apart from each other you can both wear the same sock to help you feel closer to one another when a long distance apart.
When it comes to wearing a pair to bed there are some mixed feeling among the population with one survey stating that 44% hate wearing them to bed, 28% love wearing them and 29% have mixed feelings. There are some benefits to wearing socks to bed which states that people sleep better when wearing them. The reasons for sleeping better is that they help to assist the body's internal temperature regulation and this is especially true if you some from poor circulation and cold at your extremities like your feet. Through the night the bodies temperature fluctuates and by wearing a pair of socks you help to balance these fluctuations and helps you sleep better. Studies have also shown that people who wear them to bed fall asleep faster and this is because the warming of the feet triggers a response in your brain saying that it is time for bed.
Other benefits include:
- Preventing hot flashes - They help cool the core body temperature
- Improving cracked heals - Moisturizing and then wearing cotton socks can prevent your heels from drying
- Raynaud's attack - This affects area of skin usually around the fingers and toes whereby you lose circulation and they can throb or swell. Keeping your feet warm will reduce your chances of this happening
Having said that, there are many people who have a high body temperature and would find wearing socks causes them to overheat. This will be because that person has better blood circulation, a quicker metabolism or thicker skin which means they generate more heat and by wearing a pair to bed they risk overheating and feel uncomfortable. There are also people that find wearing anything to bed an annoying distraction and this is due to our bodies being more sensitive to stimuli when going to sleep.
There are other ways in which to warm the feet in bed or trigger the going to bed response and that is by using a hot water bottle in bed or having a warm foot bath prior to sleeping.
As for couple who wish to wear matching socks or any of those that have been designed with a couple in mind the most important factor will be print or words that make them what they are. This can be a pair that are romantic or a novelty pair that make you laugh and while they are probably considered more of a stocking stuffer when you make them personal to you both, they become a great standalone gift. Because they do have some prints and text on them they do become a talking point and would make a fun gift for a bride and groom, for a housewarming, newlyweds or as engagement gift. They could also be a great thing for a bachelor/ bachelorette party especially if you can find a pair with some adult humor.
