We offer FREE USPS shipping on all US orders!

Holiday deadlines are approaching faster than a sled down a snowy hill, but don’t panic! We’re here to help you get your gifts shipped as efficiently as possible.
Please keep in mind that December is by far the busiest time of year for both Sock Dreams and USPS. We always do our best to get all orders out the door within 24 hours, but because the post office is also being flooded with mail from around the world, shipping times WILL increase the further we get into December. The simple trick here is to place your order early and select the right shipping method for your needs.
If you’re shipping within the U.S. and hoping for an order to arrive by December 24th, our free first-class shipping should be speedy enough to cover you through December 18th.
Priority shipping gives you an extra day or so of wiggle room; you can safely order with Priority through December 19th for delivery by the 24th.
By December 20th, we highly recommend that you opt for 2-Day Express if you want to be absolutely sure that the package will be delivered by the 24th.
At this point in the season, our international customers will want to select Priority or Express International shipping for all orders with a holiday due date. Unfortunately, we cannot control how long Customs may hold on to an order during inspection, but placing your order with Priority/Express International shipping can often expedite the package’s transit through Customs.
Even slightly belated gifts will still be appreciated, so don’t let tricky shipping times ruin the fun and joy of your holidays. And remember– if you’re down to the wire and you’ve completely run out of time to ship anything, there’s always our e-gift cards, which are emailed to your recipient immediately!
More information about our shipping options can always be found on our shipping information page, and we encourage you to contact us at any time with questions about shipping, gift orders, or anything else!
Last father’s day we offered some dashing styles for your dads, and our men’s and larger feet sections are always growing (of course, if your father’s feet are US men’s shoe size 8 or less, they’ve got their pick of just about everything we carry!).
Since this past mother’s day we talked about some tights options for new mothers, we figured we’d turn the spotlight of styles to new dads. Because there is one thing cuter than how tiny baby socks are (especially when compared to larger-footed midcalves) and it’s perfectly coordinated babies and poppas.
And all of these larger-footed midcalves are available in smaller sizes too, just check the Additional Info on their product pages for the link!
Are you picking up any socks for dads, new and old?
Whew, we’re in the last stretch of December’s holidays, I hope that you’ve all made it this far in one piece! If you’ve still got presents to give and no time left for them to ship, don’t forget that you can give a gift card in an instant with our email gift certificates! You can choose from five different themes, including a gorgeous Solstice design that matches the theme of our site right now!
Along with the month, we’re almost through with the year! It’s crazy how fast 2011 seemed to go and I don’t know about you, but I still can’t quite believe that it’ll be 2012 in a little over a week. I also know that I fully plan on rewarding myself with a sock or two that I’ve been coveting this winter season.
You may think you have socks you’re super desirous of, but when you are around socks all day, getting to touch them and see all of the nearly thousand styles we carry—well, you should see the wishlists some Dreamers knocked out as soon as the option was available. I asked my fellow Dreamers what socky delights they’ve been eyeing and will probably pick up before the end of the year. They were more than happy to share, ‘cause well—we all love socks here! So sit back and get ready to scroll through some delightful sock goodness. Consider it a mini vacation of pretty.
“My favorite socks this season are the Cronert Wooly Rainbows . . . if I was going to treat myself with one pair for making it through this year it would be another pair of those. . . they are super snuggly, soft and really pretty to look at. I have washed and dried mine in the machine, despite the warnings against that, and they came out perfect, soft and stretchy as ever…. they are like little wooly clouds emitting rainbows.”
“By now I have them all, but I was coveting the heck out of all of the mooses and deers.” When asked if it was because of the antlers they replied, “Yes. I must have all the power of antler.”
“I’ve been wanting to try the O Rayons FOREVER because they feel so silky soft– I just haven’t been able to decide on a color to start with; they’re all beautiful!” (I think they should go for Blueberry! It’s my favourite, though I’m also super partial to the Lichen.)

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 »
