4 Cliché-Busting Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas - FITS®

February 08, 2019

With stores already stocking their shelves with red boxes of candy and oversized teddy bears, it’s obvious that Valentine’s Day gift clichés are still alive and well. However, just because other couples may be falling victim to the same-old-same-old doesn’t mean you can’t surprise your loved one with something unexpected this February 14th.

Luckily, we’re here to help you think outside the (heart-shaped) box. We’ve rounded up four Valentine’s Day gift ideas that take a new spin on the typical clichéd presents — so you can show that special someone just how uniquely you care for them.

Design your own chocolate bar

Rather than purchasing any old box of candy, make it personalized by designing a custom chocolate bar with all of your sweetie’s favorites. You can even take it one step further and design your own wrapper full of inside jokes or featuring a cute photo.

Make long-lasting flowers

Don’t waste your money on roses that will wither and die. Instead, make a bouquet that will last as long as you hope your relationship will. Whether paper, fabric or tissue, choose a medium that will be meaningful to your Valentine and get crafting.

Ditch the lingerie

You know what’s much more comfortable than a lacey corset she’ll never actually wear? Socks. Yes, you read that correctly: SOCKS. Rather than manufacturing a sexy moment with complicated undergarments, let the magic happen naturally with a cozy cuddle by the fireplace and a gift that says, “Hey. I know you work hard. Put those feet up and get comfy with the best fitting socks around.”

Turn date night into date weekend

Why wait an hour for a table when you can give the gift of a getaway experience? There’s nothing better than getting away with your boo, so celebrate love with a ski trip or bucket list destination that you’ll both always remember.

Remember, above all, it’s the thought that counts — and we’re happy to help you think this one through.

No time to waste! Start your Valentine’s Day shopping today.


Sock Sizing

The Perfect Fit Starts With the Right Size.

Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.

Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.

Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)

How Do You Determine Sock Size?

Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you. 

How Do You Measure Your Foot for Socks?

To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart. 

What Is the Sock Size Conversion?

The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you. 

What is Sock Size to Shoe Size?

Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:

Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot. 

What Age is Sock Size 9-12?

Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
