Socks and Pilot Pens for Valentine's Day

If you need some ideas for Valentine’s Day that aren’t the norm especially when it comes to kids and friends and even your loved ones. One wouldn’t think of socks or pens, but in my family they are both loved. For real, my oldest loves socks. So, I wanted to share what Gold Toe and Pilot Pens has to offer. 






Gold Toe

Like I said before socks aren’t usually a Valentine’s Day gift, but Gold toe socks, aren’t your normal sock. They have ones for kids, women and men, so everyone is covered. When I say my oldest loves socks, i’m not kidding. Within 5 minutes of the box arriving with a huge assortment of socks, she had on a pair of pink luxury socks. Although, i’d love to feel them when they were not on her feet, I have to say, they are so soft. I may or may not have taken the red pair for myself (pretty sure she will steal them back though).



Besides the luxury socks, I think our favorites were the colored sport. Mya’s style can be described as sport. She loves yoga pants and sweatshirts. It helps that she is a talented athlete too. The Sport socks are perfect for any type of shoe or boot (it is winter after all).



If neither of those are your style, don’t worry, Gold Toe has something for everyone in every style from solid white, colors and even some with fun prints on them. I highly recommend you check them out. Everyone needs socks, so adding them to a fun Valentine’s Day gift basket is perfect.


I’m 33 years old and I still love getting good pens. I’m sure i’m in the majority when I say, I love a pen that is smooth and doesn’t leave ink blots. Writing smooth is a big thing for me, especially since I have horrible handwriting, and I have yet to have a Pilot pen that didn’t write amazing.

I think my favorite regular writing pen is their Metropolitan Pop. It’s smooth on the outside and writes amazing. It does come in a little case which is really neat (and perfect for gifts), and comes in different colors. They are a little higher than a normal pen, price wise, but in my opinion very worth it.



I remember when I was a kid and loved when I got a pen that I could erase, so when Pilot sent a pack of the Frixion Erasable Gel Pens, I was so happy. While they leave a little bit behind (more the indentation from writing), the eraser is awesome. Not only that, but they also have some great colors, like green, purple, blue etc.



There are so many options when it comes to Pilot Pens, no matter what your style it. From ball point, rolling ball, erasable and everything in between.


So if either of these sound good to you, i’d go and get some now and surprise your Valentine with something a little less traditional to go along with other gifts.

  1. These socks look very comfy. I am picky about my socks as they have to stay up yet be loose as I hate tight socks

  2. This is hilarious because I would so much rather receive socks and pilot pens for Valentine's Day than flowers and chocolate! You never know the true way to a girl's heart....

  3. I guess I'm very practical also because I get more excited about socks and pens than I do the traditional Valentine's Day gifts. Although I do love chocolates, they just don't need to come in a heart shaped box.
