25 Days of Christmas: Day 16

Whether you are standing in a river, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or making the approach on you favorite bouldering spot; there is a vital piece of clothing that everyone needs.  Growing up I never wanted to get socks and underwear as a gift.  Neither of those items are fun.  Super boring for a child.  Contrary to my beliefs as a child, wool socks are always welcome as a gift.  I am that guy that wears wool socks regardless of the weather.  It could be a piping 105 degrees or -20 below.  You will always find me wearing a good quality sock.  I have found that socks are one of the most important pieces of clothing that you put on your body.  They can make or break your day.  Cotton causes blisters and stays wet and soggy all day.  Wool keeps your feet warm when its cold and keeps them cool when its warm.  I like short wool socks, long wool socks, gray wool socks, and black wool socks.  It doesn’t matter what they look like.  As long as they are wool.  Use this as a stocking stuffer or pack a whole box full.  Regardless, I am confident that wool socks will be well received by anyone that frequents the outdoors or just likes their feet.
