Let’s face it, finding the perfect gift for the men in your life is hard. It’s always a struggle to find something that your dad, significant other or brother will appreciate and use. If you’ve run out of ideas, how about mixing creativity with practicality, and give him a sock bouquet?
Socks aren’t the plain old gift that they used to be. Now, they are a gift that can be personalized to match a personality. What if a friend really loves shawarma? Well, you can gift them the shawarma socks, of course! With a sock bouquet, you can give a well-presented gift of multiple socks. It turns the gift into something even more quirky and fun.
If you’re wondering what a sock bouquet even is (literally, a bouquet of socks) or how to make one, here’s how!
What you’ll need:
- Safety pin
- Dowels or skewers
- Ribbon or decoration of your choice
First, lay out the sock of your choice on a flat surface. You can choose a certain type of themed sock depending on the occasion! (For instance, if its Eid, use Eid themed sock!)
Make a small fold at the opened part of the sock
Start rolling the sock. Keep the rolls tight, while letting the rest of the sock stay loose
At the bend of the sock, fold the toe end underneath, so that the sock looks like one long piece
Keep rolling until the whole sock is rolled up like a rose!
Use a safety pin to keep the rolls and folds in place
Get a wooden dowel or skewer and stick it through the end of the rolled up sock
Make as many as you want, and place in a vase or tie up with a ribbon
Voila! You have your bouquet of socks! Present this gift to your loved one on any special occasion, along with a card or box of chocolates. They’re sure to have a laugh and appreciate the fun gesture!
