Gift Collections: Witchy Wonders
We know the thousands of socks and accessories on our site can get overwhelming, that’s why we’re going to be spending some Sock Journal time looking at our Gift Collections. These are Dreamer-curated collections of socks at your fingertips, perfect for when you’re searching for a gift (for yourself or somebody else).
Spring is in the air! No matter how mean March was, it can’t stop the waning of winter. With the Spring Equinox on March 20th, the magic of seasonal change charges the months ahead and makes us want to inject a little Witchy Wonder into our everyday.
With a wealth of florals and more than a couple celestial styles, these socks will definitely put a spell on you. What we wear is part of our armor and strength, and we love these witchy styles for how good they look and make us feel. That makes them great gifts for yourself and others, adding a little loving intention to an already fun present.
Embrace the Elements
The four (or five, depending) elements are a favourite theme in socks; besides being beautiful, it’s a great way to feel like you’re channeling some elemental power. Fiery determination, the calm of Water, grounding Earth or mutable Air. Having a little reminder of your strength worked into what you wear can be a powerful thing.
Sometimes there’re five elements represented. If you’re the Captain Planet type, then you know it’s “heart,” but when we were making our Elemental Stripes, we chose “Spirit” for the fifth and rendered it in potent purples. Available in three heights, our Dreamer Socks Elemental styles use beautiful stripes to wrap you in your chosen element.
Elemental socks are too cool to not play with, which is why Ozone and Symbolic Socks also offer their interpretations. Gorgeous and graphic, both brands pull symbology into their socks, with crackling flames in Ozone’s Fire Crew, or the flowing imagery of the Ace of Cups tarot card in Symbolic Socks’ Elemental Water Midcalf. And, both brands call forth the grounding and verdant power of Earth in their elemental styles.
We think that no matter what you pick, if you wear a pair of any of these socks you’ll definitely find yourself in your element.
Wander a Witches’ Garden
When Ozone introduced their Witches’ Garden line the idea took seed in our hearts and we were transfixed. With eight delightfully dangerous plants selected for their magical associations, they’re also fun to mix and match for your own powerful prescription! Each pair has a little tag offering possible combinations to conjure what you want out of your day.
We think these are particularly great gifts, with their bright colors and beautiful blooms. Plus, if you mix and match, then you can keep one of the sets for yourself, so you and your giftee share the spell!
Of course, these crew socks are just as magical on their own, with beautiful floral designs running from toes to cuffs. We’re particularly bewitched by the Bioluminescent Spores Crew, which have little spots that react fantastically to blacklight!
Seek Your Strength in the Stars
Time to get spacey. Whether you’re moved by the moon or scry the stars, there are socks to reflect your celestial influences. Looking up into the night sky for calm and guidance is an ancient part of humanity. The stars are particularly helpful with this, guiding our steps more than spiritually, thanks to their distinct displays that aid in navigation.
Available in two sock lengths from Sock It To Me and as an arm warmer from Una, those consoling constellations can lead the way in person!
We love that there are matching arm warmers and socks for this design, even though they’re from different brands. It’s almost like it was foretold in the um, the stars. Similar marvelously matching options are also available in heavenly bodies, with the phases of the moon cycling over both socks and arm warmers, again from Sock It To Me and Una, respectively.
Cast Your Lot for Cute Socks
Of course, we couldn’t dip a toe into witchy wonderfulness without including some clairvoyance! Whatever ‘mancy is your fancy (we like podomancy—check out this amazing list of divination methods on Wikipedia!), we think we see these styles in your future:
Find Magic Every Day
Of course, we’ve got some more styles hiding in the cauldron that contains our Witchy Wonders collection, from spirit boards to symbols. Even if you think the whole thing is a little “woo” it’s worth remembering that sometimes a simple pair of good socks can be the thing that casts a spell of confidence on your day.
