Have you ever looked down at your feet and thought: ‘Oh golly! I really like my socks but they’d be massively improved if they had my best mate’s face printed on them.’
Well if you have then you might want to sit down and take a breath, because there’s a company who’ll make you socks with a photo of your choice printed on them.
That means, if you so choose, you could make a beautiful pair of socks with a picture of your best mate’s mug on it!
Prezzybox is the company behind the absolutely bizarre idea, and for the price of just £19.99, you can have your own pair of customisable cotton socks.
Here’s how they describes the socks:
These overstated socks are sure to raise some eyebrows! A hilarious gift for any friend or loved one, they wont be expecting to open this!
Made from soft poly cotton, available in three sizes and a choice of colours – you cant go wrong. Just upload a clear picture and we will do the rest!
Of course, you don’t have to put your mate’s face on there, you could have your dog printed on them and teach him to ‘heel’, or even your ‘sole mate’ if you’re so inclined.
Don’t think you have to limit the picture to someone you like either. If you want to get some super passive-aggressive revenge, you could get someone you’re not too fond of printed on them
Just imagine the petty glee you’ll feel as you subject a picture of your ‘mate’ who chews with his mouth open, or the boss who overlooked you for promotion to your stinky feet.
It’ll be glorious, and best of all, they’ll never know you’ve taken sweaty revenge on them.
In fact, now that I think about it, there are less than six months until Christmas, so why not bookmark these socks as an idea for your office’s annual game of ‘Secret Santa’?
According to research conducted last year, personalised socks can’t be any worse than some of the gifts people get for Secret Santa as one-third of Brits go for a ‘funny gift’ for their colleagues at Christmas time.
While most people don’t seem to mind the sillier gifts, the study – which sampled 1,500 working adults and was conducted by V.I.Poo – found 53 per cent of people said it was important to buy something thoughtful.
Furthermore, they found one in five of Brits surveyed said they always opt for a present which refers to a private joke between themselves and their recipient of the present.
It’s nice to know some people put some real thought into their gifts, as opposed to wandering into Boots and finding the first thing under the price limit.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
