Did you know the sock fairies LOVE reading? It's a habit we think everyone should embrace! You can learn about the past, keep up with current events or acquire a new skill. You can even escape to another world! Heck, you don’t even need to read science fiction or fantasy books for that — any work of fiction can be a portal to somewhere new.
What better way to show your love of reading than with awesome book socks? We’ve got so many to choose from! And with the holidays fast approaching, keep fun novelty socks in mind as you’re shopping for gifts for your favorite reader! Books can be hit or miss, after all. Good news: It’s hard to go wrong with awesome socks! Even if they’re not book-themed (like our Make A Splash elephant socks, above) there's nothing quite like snuggling up with a good book and a great pair of socks.
We've got tons of book-related socks. Seriously! Everything from classics to Harry Potter, as well as animals like cats, sloths, and the creations of Dr Seuss.
We love those Harry Potter book cover socks, which come from our friends at Out Of Print. This wonderful little company’s mission is to spread the joy of reading through apparel and accessories. Plus, they donate books and support literacy programs around the world!
"Books and reading are such a big thing for so many of us sock fairies! Both of my kids and all of our pets are named after literary characters, and all of us around here talk books and share books all the time. We absolutely love partnering with Out of Print to promote books and literacy through fun socks. It really is close to our hearts here!"

So socks are a great way to a reader’s heart. But to steal a somewhat-famous quote, you mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling. All right, that’s from a movie, but you get what we’re trying to say: We’ve got book-themed gift ideas that aren’t socks!
Sure, we’re all ordering online now, but books can be still shared between friends. Most libraries are open in some way. You gotta tote all those books around in something — so why not a funny, eye-catching bag? These cute recycled totes come in many sizes and are great for getting organized.
Maybe you don’t have that many books — making the large tote seem like overkill. That’s OK! We’ve got smaller sizes too, and those are great for other things, like snacks or random items that can get easily lost — get creative!
Sure, many people get their words out on a desktop or laptop, but most writers will tell you that there’s no substitute for pen (or pencil!) and paper. We’ve got lots of necklaces and mismatched earrings to choose from, and writers and readers alike are sure to love the pencil and notebook earrings shown above. They’ll look great on any pierced ears and work well with all of our book-themed socks! They’re a unique gift and also pair well with...
It might feel weird to give a blank book to a reader, but stay with us on this one. George Lucas once said that the whole reason he created Star Wars was because nobody was making movies he wanted to see. And we love this Toni Morrison quote: “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Remember, your story is always unique, because you’re the one telling it. So give your favorite bookworm the opportunity to pull on some fabulous socks, grab a journal and tell their own story!
And no matter what you purchase, every order comes wrapped up in our special yarn, with a sticker and an awesome bookmark. Because readers rock our socks!
