Re: SocksBatch!

I just bought my son five pairs of colourful socks at Jack & Jones. So in case there is one those near you - 5 pairs for 10 Euros. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Maybe I should put that in my personal note?

I don't think there is... but they are online and send for free. Thank you.

Re: SocksBatch!

I just got cautioned by my boyfriend not to overdo this. I might be paranoid here but...d'you think Ben would be okay with us drowning him in socks? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Re: SocksBatch!

There are much worse things we could do. I think the socks is a pretty 'harmless' thing to do...

I mean we could send him... I don't know, but something that seemed way more personal.

Re: SocksBatch!

That's true! Phew thanks Phantom. I was worried if we were stepping out of line. Not too familiar with where the definition of fan stops and where stalker-ish begins. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png

Re: SocksBatch!

I think socks is fine! I think it's quite sweet and I don't suppose we are the only ones!

He always sounds genuinely touched by any gifts, so I know he'll be touched by ours

How mental must I sound right now but I know exactly what to give him when I meet him (when, not if!). I have the whole scene played out in my head!!! I'm a saddo....

How does everyone else feel about that?

It gives us time to sort all the finer details. How about they're all wrapped in stripes or spotty paper as well?

Re: SocksBatch!

Well I think we need to theme it as much as possible, so it's clear it's all from the same group from the outset!

I'm so excited about this!!!

Re: SocksBatch!

Loving the socks pictures - I might join you and send some nice stripey ones!
Wouldn't it be nice to send them a little earlier though? By April he might be busy working on something and they might take an age to reach him?
It's up to you guys though, of course

Okay this is a silly question, but as I live in a tropical climate I don't really have a good grasp of what type/material of socks are preferred in England! Any tips guys? 

Depends on the time of year. For spring/summer/autum I'd say normal cotton socks. For winter, woolly socks might be better indicated, but I guess it depends on what type of shoes you're wearing. What I wouldn't go for is the stocking type (i.e. that go up to your knee).

Re: SocksBatch!

April 1st is a great day! 

And the idea of dotted or striped paper is perfect too!
