Great Stocking Stuffer Idea

I just ordered a pair of these adorable socks from Kiel James Patrick and thought I’d share them since they would make such a great gift or stocking stuffer. KJP is having their once-a-year sale, 25% off everything on their site with the code, Setsail, so it was the perfect time to try them.


I had such a hard time choosing which design to go with, but finally chose the adorable Cabin sock here: Cozy Cabin Sock. I’m super picky about socks, don’t like the ones that are mostly polyester or nylon because they can cause sweaty feet. Yuck! Was happy to see these are 40% cotton and 20% wool, so they should be really comfortable for winter. This is a small sampling of the ones they have available, they have a few more designs at the site here: Cozy Socks.

I’ve ordered their nautical belts before and am so tempted by this one! Sooo cute! It’s available here: Woody Car Belt.

Happy Stocking-Stuffer shopping! I noticed most of the sales seem to be continuing through the weekend. That’s great since I’ve been sick with a terrible cold all weekend, so doing all my shopping online. Hoping you are staying well!


Update: Just discovered that Talbots extended their 40% Off Black Friday sale with 50% off any item. You’ll find the sale here: Talbots, 40% off Sale.

  1. I love your blog. It’s like getting up to date news on foods, clothing and travel. Also the yard , exercising epqt. and many interesting things of life. I probably would never venture into so many areas if not for you. Especially that Christmas tree experience. You are indeed the tried and true. Thanks for your knowledge and experiences into such a diverse world.

    • Thanks so much, Margaret! I love sharing it all and it makes me truly happy to hear that you find it helpful. So appreciate so much, you letting me know!

  2. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Hope you get better soon and thanks for the socks they are so cute.

    • Thanks, Marlene! When I take Advil Cold and Sinus, I start feeling better, but back to yucky when it wears off. If we could only find a cure for the common cold! Not looking forward to making the 9 hour drive back home with this nasty cold.

  3. So sorry you aren’t feeling well. I bought the Canadian cut tree (you so kindly did all the research on) at the black Friday sale. My previous one was from Costco years ago and I loved it. Sadly, some lights have stopped working and after dealing with the frustration of trying to repair and replace we decided to get a new tree. I hadn’t been liking any I saw so went with your recomendation. I was wanting each branch to be wider across. This one also isn’t but I love it anyway. After fluffing it is looking beautiful. At night it is most impressive with the brightness and quantity of lights. Thanks for doing all the searching for me!

    • The lights are one of my favorite things about this tree too, well that and how full it is, as well as easy to fluff. I was thinking of buying a 9 ft one for my bedroom, but don’t have a good place to store it upstairs and would hate to have to bring it up a full flight of stairs every year. Tempted to buy it anyway…in case I move one day and have the height for a 9 ft tree.

  4. Sorry to hear you have been sick. Rest up and feel better soon. Love those socks. Going now to check out this store on line. Seems like I’ve been “checking out” stores all weekend and it isn’t even Cyber Monday yet. Vikki in VA.

    • Thanks, Vikki! I want every single pair but barely restrained myself to just buying one. I can’t wait to see what’s out there for Cyber Monday. So many of the stores I visited today online were out of my size or a color I wanted. Things are going fast!

  5. You must have gotten the last pair of those cabin socks. They’re all gone!

  6. Hi Susan. So sorry you are not feeling well. Get well soon. The socks are so cute. So hot here, not sure anyone would wear them. Needing a winter vaca. 🙂 Enjoy this holiday season. xoxo

    • I’m in Ohio right now and it’s way to cold for this southern girl. lol When it was 35 degrees here last night, I checked and it was 50 in Georgia. I like that a lot better! Jealous of your warm weather, Tina!

  7. Hi Susan, do you know if the KJP socks are for men or women?

  8. Susan, I love KJP socks often seen in their Instagram! Hope you feel better!

  9. Juanita in OH says:

    Wow, Susan, these socks are beautiful! I enjoyed the KJP site. I hope your are feeling much better very soon. If your nose is stuffy eat something spicy it will clear it out.

    • Good idea! Advil Cold and Sinus is my best friend the last two days. It’s hard to sleep with a stopped up nose…that’s the worse part of a cold, I think. Ugh. Thanks, Juanita!

  10. Ugh….the dreaded holiday crud…hot cider (loaded or not…) Cute socks, etc.!! franki

  11. Linda Nelson says:

    Cute socks. Love the idea, and the discount/sale is a plus. However, I find the cost of those socks to be a bit pricey anyway. When I think of stocking stuffers, I think of low cost trinkets, such as candy canes, lip balm, a deck of cards, pens, pencils, note pads, etc…. In my opinion, something costing in the range of $35 is actually the special or main gift.

    • These are nice enough to be a gift and not just a stocking stuff, since they aren’t all acrylic or nylon like so many inexpensive socks are. I find wool/cotton blend socks last much longer, so usually worth the investment. This is my first time ordering these, so I’m looking forward to trying them. I have a feeling I’ll be buying more, I love the styles/designs!

  12. Hi Susan, I’m so sorry to hear that you’re sick. I was sick during this season two years ago, and it took forever to get better. Mine turned into a sinus infection, though. I really hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks for sharing the socks and belt with us. I love those socks! Will have to check those out online. Have a good week!



    • Thanks, Denise! I found in the past if I take something like Advil Cold and Sinus or Mucinex D (which you have to sign for) I can usually prevent it from going into a sinus infection. I used to get sinus infections a lot until my doctor told me about Mucinex D. I haven’t had one now in a few years. It seems to keep things moving/draining, so the infection won’t build up, At least that’s how it seems to work for me. Of course, I wouldn’t take anything without checking with your doctor to make sure it’s safe for you.

  13. Mary MacKenzie says:

    Cool socks!

  14. Sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well. What to do when Susan, our research genius, is down ? I was just saying for years I would say “Every Christmas I am sick” Then I realized even though I never bought a real tree, I would bring home the branches trimmed when someone bought a live tree so my home would smell like Christmas. I am sooo allergic to Christmas trees.
    BTW when I tried the links for the socks I got a warning and couldn’t see them at the source.
    Feel better soon.

    So sorry to hear you are not feeling well, trusting you will be on the mend soon. I am sure you are feeling our northern bite of a chill also, but this week we are to be in the high 40’s, even up to 50, so that may be a bit better for you. Socks are cute, but I just purchased the Nora Fleming salt and pepper shakers and Christmas tree charm and the white cross for Easter. It will be fun to add to the charm collection. I chose the salt and pepper shakers as they will get the most exposure and I really don’t need any more platters or cake stands, although they were tempting, ha. Get lots of rest my friend and be sure to stay hydrated. Hugs.

  16. Hope you are feeling better by now.

    I love that KJP calls the socks “Toasty Toe Sweaters.” They are cute and I also love that they are 20% cotton, 20% wool.

  17. Are those leggings paired with the socks? Whatever they are, I want them! I want the socks too.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
