We offer FREE USPS shipping on all US orders!
Before we dive into fun and fancy present ideas, let’s give you the numbers. Based on the information we have from the United States Postal Service, International and Military mail have run out of time to get things shipped to their destinations before December 25th. But for you US residents who want to use our free First Class USPS shipping, you’ll want to get your order in by the afternoon of this Monday, December 19th to be safe. USPS may tell us the 20th is the last day for First Class shipping, but when you’re wanting to be timely, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
For things being sent via USPS Priority mail (which is an extra $5, and free for orders totalling over $50) USPS is telling us the 21st, but you’ll want to make your order by the afternoon of this Tuesday, December 20th to ensure your order arrives in time.
Extra special rush deliveries shipping USPS Express (for $22, which includes insurance) that need to arrive by December 25th need to be made before noon on December 22nd, though again you’ll be safer if you make your order on Wednesday the 21st. All of our prices and expected time for delivery is on our Shipping Information page.
So, even if you’re using our free First Class shipping, you have all weekend to browse and find just the right treats for your loved ones (or yourself). And I know a couple of styles that are perfect gifts for a winter holiday.
The Cronert Button Up Legwarmers are not only cozy and chic, they’re crazy soft and will be one of those pretty presents that a person can’t stop touching.
More snuggly suggestions after the jump and some shopping tips too! Read more »
The Stocking Stuffer collection is full of seasonal and thoughtful styles to give you a jumping off point for whatever little socky gifts you’re giving this year. The end of the calendar year is full of gift giving holidays, like Christmas, Hanukah and even Saturnalia. Besides, any December birthdays deserve a little gift of their own, instead of being rounded into holiday presents.
Nothing is quite as cozy as a winter sweater and sweater patterns and knits abounded this year, they’re a fun gift—the hectic patterns of a holiday sweater become beautiful on the smaller canvas of a sock.
Wee baby socks are great gifts too, especially for new families, and a couple of our favourites are tucked among the stocking stuffers (though it’s worth peeking through Kids & Baby too, there’s bunches more!). You can also check out last year’s post about socks for family feet for more ideas!
Because we get to see what people order for gifts, we have a good idea of what the popular sock presents are for the holidays. Toe socks are probably one of the most popular styles. They’re different and fun and great stocking stuffers. And if you’re a toe sock convert, a present is the best way to try and win others over to the joys of toe freedom.
Now, what about folks who totally should get toe socks for the holidays, but aren’t exactly a stripy, tabi, goofy kind of person? That’s where beautifully engineered, premium toe socks come in. We’ve written about Injinji before, when we first brought them in and again this summer, when telling you about Coolmax® fiber. They’re a little pricer than novelty toe socks, but that’s because of all the brain power that went into designing them.
Designed for performance, with a comfortable welt cuff, smart shaping in the toes and heel, a bit of built-in arch support and available in three sizes, Injinji toe socks take that quirky toe sock present to the next level. Their most basic sock, the Performance Micro Toe Sock, is comfortable as all get-out and even comes in more options than boring old black and white.
After the jump we’ll highlight a couple more of their styles and let you know just who they’re perfect for (and just maybe they’re perfect for you!). Plus, we’ve got a review from a Vibram FiveFingers wearer about the Injinji Performance Liner styles! Read more »
We are renowned for our super fast shipping but during these final days before the holidays USPS is overwhelmed and even we cannot perform miracles under such circumstances.
Here is a link to their shipping cut off schedule: USPS Holiday Shipping.
Plus, we need a day for processing so we would suggest Sunday December 19th as the last day to safely place an order with free first class shipping. If you order on Monday upgrade to Priority (free for orders $50 & up). Tuesday the 21st is the last day to safely order using Express shipping…
after that you’re really taking your chances if you want the item in time for Christmas, but we’ll do all we can on our end to get it on it’s way.
We offer the option of picking up your order at our warehouse in Portland for you local folks in need. Also… shopping at our little shoppe of socks in Sellwood is a fantastic idea because we’ll be open all the way up til 6 pm on Christmas Eve (picking up your online orders at the shoppe can be done, but does take us a little longer to process).
Of course, you can always do an Ecard at the very last moment and have instant gratification!
