You may not know this, but serious isn't a word we use frequently here at The Sock Drawer. We're here for the not-so-serious moments when you need a little joy and silliness instead. But these days, there's one thing we definitely take seriously: There is increasing evidence from the CDC and others that wearing a cloth face covering, along with social distancing and washing your hands, can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Sock Drawer is, first and foremost, a sock company, but one of our core values here is We Care. For Real. That made the decision to carry face masks a real no-brainer!
That decision became extra easy as a number of the brands we already work with to sell their awesome socks also began to make face masks in crazy patterns. Another of our core values here is Go Giddy, and so we made it our mission to source high-quality, washable and reusable masks that are just as much fun as our awesome socks!
Each of our suppliers makes their masks just a bit differently, which means that each offers unique perks that make them awesome. Let's take a look at the different brands of fun face masks we're carrying now!
Sock It to Me
This funny face mask is called Every Day Is Cat-erday and it's bound to get smiles from those around you. Don't forget, we carry tons of awesome cat socks for both men and women, so never fear being able to match your face mask pattern with your socks!

Safe ... and also silly!
We want everyone to stay safe, and there's no reason you can't look fabulous while doing that. So wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask. A stylish face mask.
...and if you can, match your mask with your socks.
While we're talking about safety, don't forget we now also offer these tiny, life-saving, hilarious bottles of hand sanitizer. (Heads up! Some have swear words on 'em!)
Give these funny hand sanitizer bottles as gifts, or keep them in your bag and be the first to offer yours to borrow.
But, seriously (see what we did there?): Stay safe, everyone. Just stay silly, too!
