    The Joy of OddSocks

    United OddSocks Collection

    OddSocks

    Wouldn't it be great if you never again had to concern yourself with these persistant sock problems;

    spending time matching them up 

    finding the missing one that you KNOW needs to get into the washing machine 

    the sinking feeling of wanting to wear your absolute favourite pair but remembering one has a hole in it

    being fed up with boring old socks

    searching high and low with one dressed foot and one eye on the time because all other socks are waiting for wash day

    There IS a solution - a pack of six beautifully co-ordinated, individual OddSocks. 

    What a genius idea! A set of six socks that compelment each other perfectly - a choice of five partners rather than just one.

    Funky Socks for Women

    Cute and cuddly, bold or muted, stripes, spots and animals, there's an OddSocks set for every personality. 

    Quirky Mens' Socks

    Sporty, space related, dinosaurs, drinkers (and some just rude!).  Socks that make a statement and socks that allow a different part of your character to be embraced.

    OddSocks make great gifts too:

    Gift Socks

    Not just for the adults! Oh so cute Dad and baby, Mum and baby, toddler and child OddSocks. Think colourful ducklings and flamingos, monkeys and dinosaurs, favourite characters and, of course, unicorns. Scary socks for Halloween and Seasonal Socks for Christmas.

    Stress Head Socks

    Mildly irritated to downright fuming and all the stages in between are represented in the Stress Head Socks. Stomp on them all you like to diffuse that negativity!

    Stand Out Socks

    Let's admit it, there's a rebel part of us all that longs to been seen.  What better way to make a bold yet safe statement with bright and colourful socks (that can be whisked away under a trouser leg if needs must of course..)

    Choosing Lights For Your Christmas Tree

    Choosing Lights For Your Christmas Tree

    How Many Lights For A Christmas Tree?

    It really depends how much sparkle you'd like, and in our opinion you can never have too many, but then we would say that! The above gives you a guide for what we'd recommend when using regular fairy lights.

    Bulbs & LEDs

    The size guide above is based on LEDs. These are normally 3mm (micro) or 5mm across. They're all just as bright! Other options are Candle lights, flickering bulbs and the like which can be used alongside or instead of LEDs for a more traditional look.

    Multifunction

    Multifunction controllers come with many lights and allow effects such as waves, slo glo, twinkling and steady on. All the controllers we sell have a built in memory, meaning they remember the last setting used.

    Lights without a multifunction controller have thinner wire.

    Timer

    Some sets come with a built in timer. When you turn the lights on they'll stay on for 6-8 hours  then go off, coming back on at the same time the next day. A great and simple to use feature! The timer can be overridden so the lights stay on.

    Indoor/Outdoor

    Most of the Christmas Tree Lights we sell are suitable for seasonal outside use as well as indoor use. Normally this means they're suitable to be used outside for a month or two, but are not designed to be left out all year round.

    The plugs always need to be inside, however that could mean inside a waterproof box.

    Colour

    Whilst colour is a personal preference, some colours are more popular in different years so come in and out of fashion. Check out our blog about Antique White! Also, consider if you want green/black or silver/transparent cable. Usually you'd use green/black on a green tree, and silver/transparent on a white tree, or no tree.

    Mains or Battery

    There's a whole range of battery lights available with built in timers, with one set of batteries lasting the whole season.
