Socks, Socks & More Socks from Woven Pear


We love whimsical socks. And, we love them even more when they are fun and high quality, which is the only kind that Woven Pear makes. Woven Pear creates vibrant, colorful socks for women that are made of premium cotton. Serve your spouse breakfast in bed with these Bacon & Eggs best sellers, or gift her a Sock Box Subscription. Every month, Woven Pear will send her three pairs of exclusively designed socks available only to members.

Blue Apron delivers all of the ingredients right to the door so total prep time for meals is less than 30 minutes!

It has four drawers for bracelets and accessories, one drawer for rings and two vertical drawers for necklaces.


A monogrammed Nautical Weekend Bag is also a good option, though we suggest you couple this gift with tickets for a weekend getaway for two.
