Kids Christmas socks make a fun AND practical kids stocking stuffer! When you’re stumped about what to put in their stockings, opt for a fun pair of socks. Socks are also fun for a kids Christmas gift exchange or Christmas sock exchange (yes, it’s a thing)!
Christmas socks are festive, they’re warm, and every kid needs socks ALL the time.. I don’t know about you, but we go through socks like crazy around here! Despite my pleas not to wear them outdoors with no shoes 😉
For the kid who has everything or the kid who just doesn’t want very much, kids Christmas socks will be a welcome gift that they actually use.
Shopping for Kids Christmas Socks
On this list, I’ve included varying price points because sometimes you just need a quick, fun stocking stuffer, and other times you want to give your kids a quality pair of heavy-duty socks! This list of socks goes from least expensive per pair to most expensive per pair.
First up, the multipack! Got a lot of kids to shop for? Get enough socks for everyone in one easy purchase! These festive, colorful socks are 75% polyester cotton, 15% polyester, and 10% spandex.
Based on the price point, I wouldn’t expect them to last for a long time if your kids are hard on socks and wear them often, but they should make it through a winter!
For kids with a good sense of humor or kids who like wearing costumes all the time, these “little elf” kids Christmas socks will be a big hit!
Kids who are especially reserved or serious will likely not enjoy these because they are meant to make you look like you’re wearing elf stockings! Some kids would LOVE that, others not so much – be mindful who you are shopping for!
Know any kids with #squadgoals or any kids who are in touch with pop culture and like to laugh about it? These are the socks for them!
These socks are 80% Cotton / 15% Polyamide / 5% Elastane. I’m going to be honest and say I did not know what polyamide and elastane were, so I did a little Google research – polyamide is also known as nylon and elastane as spandex so that made me feel better! I ended up finding this super helpful guide to fabrics!
Every family has a cookie monster who just can’t resist eating whatever cookies you happen to be pulling out of the oven! They will probably laugh when they receive these and then wear these socks proudly while asking if you’re planning to make cookies soon.
You can’t deter them from tasting your cookies, so you might as well embrace it!
Some kids just love a good pun! Will you be “gnome” for Christmas? While you’re at it, you might add in this Christmas joke book. Just prepare yourself for a looooooot of silly jokes!
These snowflake socks aren’t exactly Christmas-y, as much as they are wintery, but this brand is supposedly known for producing durable socks that last.
I haven’t tried them yet, and my kids are each receiving a pair of the Smartwool socks you’ll find below, but Bombas is on my list of socks to try! If you have tried them, let me know what you think in the comments below!
These are the exact socks each of my kids are receiving in their stockings this year! I opted for winter over Christmas themed mostly because they really needed a pair of thicker socks.
While we live in the desert, we spend some time visiting snowy places and they need good socks for under their snow boots! Made out of 58% Merino Wool/11% Nylon/29% Recycled Nylon/2% Elastane, and kinda pricey for a pair of socks, so I hope they’ll last for years to come.
I purchased each child a different color of this same polar bear pattern in their appropriate size – pro tip, check the reviews for a picture of the size chart!
These snowy yeti socks from Smartwool are made of 70% Merino Wool/11% Nylon/18% Recycled Nylon/1% Elastane. I’m not a sock expert, so I’m not sure why these ones have a higher wool content than the polar bears!
Ultimately, I opted for the polar bears because they had more of the color options my kids prefer. If your child likes the abominable snowman, the Matterhorn, or monsters in general, these will be a fun sock for them!
May you and your family have toasty toes and a Merry Christmas! 🎄
