Father’s Day is coming up and that means the search for the perfect gift is likely underway. Socks are a perennial go-to option, but if you’re looking to actually improve dad’s life and not just add another pair to his stack, consider the fan-favorite brand Bombas for ingeniously designed socks that are comfy yet stylish essentials that anyone would probably be happy to receive.

Bombas socks come in a variety of styles from no-show to knee-length, and they typically feature comfortable seamless toes and a honeycomb structure that supports the midfoot. It’s not just socks either; the brand also makes soft T-shirts, breathable underwear, and cozy slippers that are great for gifting, and some options come in gift-ready boxes.

Plus, the calf socks are made from soft, extra-long staple cotton that’s machine-washable and dryer-safe for extremely easy care.

4. A gift pack with ankle & calf lengths

For everyday wear, this 12-pack of calf and ankle socks covers the bases.

Part sock, part slipper, these gripper slip-ons have an extremely soft and fuzzy interior lining and grippy bottoms for added traction.
