How Does It Work?

I don’t know about you, but I am terrible about greeting cards. I have such a hard time choosing because this one is too serious, that one is the wrong kind of humor, and I end up stuck in the card aisle with whining kids while I decide.

Order a stash of Lollidale cards with classically simple greetings, and you are all set! Each card comes with a pair of socks, which helps push the gift “over the top” when you’re not sure if it’s enough.

Plus, there is no need for an envelope!  The card has a sticker that holds the card closed until the recipient is ready to read their card.

Attach the sock card to your gift bag with the hook on the back of the socks, or use a loop of tape to attach them to a wrapped gift.

The tag holding the hook our sock card popped off when I was hanging it on the gift bag, so I just pinned the card on instead. Easy peasy!

What Are the Card Options?

Lollidale has two different sock options, a “his” and “hers” variety. Then there are five different types of cards that come with the socks.

The “his” socks are blue-on-blue with a neon green arch support panel. These come with a “congratulations” “happy birthday” and “thank you” message options.

The “hers” socks are coral and orange, with blue and purple heels and toes, and a neon blue arch support panel. Like the “his” socks, these come with a “congratulations” “happy birthday” and “thank you” message options. There are also two more “hers” cards to celebrate the “bride-to-be” and “mom-to-be”.

The inside of the cards are blank, and leave plenty of space for a personalized note. If you like to include cash in your cards, I would just use a paper clip to hold it safe until the card is opened.

I used the “Congratulations” card with the “hers” socks on my gift to my bestie, who just had her third baby. The Lollidale sock card looked so cute on the gift bag!

I could have also used the “mom-to-be” card option, but I wanted to give the gift after baby arrived. Socks are a great gift addition for baby showers and new moms! They receive so many gifts for the baby, and I always like to including something for the mom too!

Tell Me About the Socks

The Lollidale socks are no-show ankle socks that fall right at the ankle bone. I love that the colors are bright, without being gaudy.

They are made from a breathable bamboo fabric blend. The fabric is soft, and feels nicer than my 12 pack of socks from Target.

Benefits of that bamboo fabric are that they have antifungal and antibacterial properties, and they are really absorbent. This will help keep your feet dry and fight odor issues.

These socks are great all year long. They way this fabric insulates heat should help maintain a comfortable temperature no matter if it is cool or warm outside.

I’ve been wearing these socks as often as I do laundry over the past two weeks. I think they have a nice quality construction – there is no fraying on the seams of each color block, and they are as comfortable today as they were the day I got them.

They also have this great arch support! There is a block of fabric that gives just the right amount of extra support in the arches, without being too right. Lollidale likes to compare these to a warm and caring hug!

Because it’s still shorts season (some days) around here, I have received a few compliments on my socks at work! The coral and blue edge peeking out of my tennis shoes is really cute!

How Much Do They Cost?

Each sock card costs $12.99. This may seem a little pricey, but you’re not just getting any greeting card! Even a simple greeting card will cost a few dollars, and then you’re also getting a really comfy pair of socks, and an addition to your gift that is eye-catching.

At that price, it might not be my go-to card for every gift. But it does add a really nice touch to a gift, and I would definitely be inclined to use these for more special occasions.

There is a limited time offer for free shipping, so try them out! But hurry, that only lasts until October 15th!

Typically, there is a $2.99 shipping fee for each order, with free shipping on orders over $45.

 

Are There Special Wash Instructions?

The only clothes I buy that have special wash instructions are LuLaRoe (from Melissa’s Marvels!). I can not be bothered to sort my lights and darks, and I’m not checking the tags on clothes to see what kind of cycle they need.

That said, the Lolidale socks fit my wash routine just fine! The instructions say to wash on cold, hang dry, and to not use bleach or an iron. I don’t even know where my bleach or iron are located at the moment, so that’s not a problem!

I wash all of our clothes on cold, and tumble dry on low with dryer balls. To be honest, I am not picking out these socks to hang dry. But the low dryer cycle hasn’t caused any shrinkage or change in quality of the fabric.
