Mum’s The Word

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Mothers’ Day falls slightly earlier this year, on 14th March (yes just one month away) so make sure you’ve got something to make your mum smile on the day. We’re all for flowers and chocolates of course (who doesn’t love those?!), but this year why not add a little something extra, something a bit less ordinary, to Mum’s treats..?

Yep, you’ve guessed it, we’re talking socks! But socks from Doris & Dude are not just any socks. Our socks are made to a super soft and sustainable formula with bamboo, organic cotton and recycled polyester, so they’re as kind to the planet as they are to your feet. And what’s more they come in a fantastic array of bright and bold colours, perfect for Spring, and a whole host of funky designs inspired by nature, so we’re pretty confident there’s something to suit every Mum.

Here are a few suggestions to get you thinking:

New designs from the latest collection for Spring/Summer 2021

Toast Socks

These beauties are extra thick and super lush, ideal for spending the day in boots out exploring the countryside or working in the garden.

Matchies

No-one can deny the cuteness of matchies for mum and kids! These designs are available in womens UK 3-7 as well as kids UK 9-12 and 12-3.

Knee Length

We have it on good authority that our knee lengths are a great gift for mums!

Easyfit Socks

Our Easyfit range is designed for people who suffer with swollen legs, ankles or feet, for example as a result of diabetes or oedema. With a conical shape and gentle grip they are super comfy and don’t restrict blood flow to the feet. Plus there is not a boring plain design in sight!

Happy Mother’s Day from Doris & Dude!

Think there’s no romance in socks? WRONG!

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

If you love your other half almost as much as you love saving the planet, then look no further for your perfect Valentines gift!

A sustainable and super soft pair of Doris & Dude socks, made with bamboo, organic cotton and recycled polyester are as kind to the planet as they are to your feet, and come in hoards of cute and funky designs. Guaranteed to raise a smile every time you put them on in the morning!

So here are our picks for Valentines Day from the latest collection for Spring/Summer 2021:

Lobsters – UK 3-7 & UK 7-11

Lobsters may not be a traditional symbol of love but ever since THAT line from Phoebe Buffay in 90s hit comedy Friends the lobster has become just as much, in fact arguably more, romantic than a bunch of roses or box of chocolates. Plus in his ‘n’ hers sizes you can wear them together for double the love.

Foxes – UK 3-7 & UK 7-11

If you’re lucky enough to have a foxy lady, or a silver fox in your life these are the love socks for you. If you want to make any other Valentines puns on the fox theme they’re probably best kept between the two of you.

Rhinos – UK 3-7 & UK 7-11

A rhino always has the horn. Say no more on that one I think.

Seagulls – UK 3-7 & UK 7-11

What love is there greater than that of a seagull for a stolen pasty? Yours of course!

Seals – UK 3-7

If you want your gift ‘sealed’ with a kiss these cute socks are perfect for the lucky lady.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

Lockdown SockCycling: Part 1

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Well here we are in UK Lockdown 2. Perhaps you’re wondering what to do with yourself, perhaps you’re wondering where you can find enough hours in the day. So why not ditch the boring zoom meetings and homeschool headaches for a day, and lighten up with one of these easy sock craft projects instead with our new mini series of Lockdown SockCycling! Besides, your sock drawer will get a good clear out ready to accommodate the lush new D&Ds you got for Christmas – it’s a win-win.

First up it’s You, The Kids and The Pets.

For you

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Soothe away the stresses of the day or muscle aches with a homemade heat pack. Half fill your sock with rice, tie a knot in the end, and job’s a good’un. Pop in the microwave for 30 seconds and r e l a x …

If you’re feeling more ambitious you could nicely sew it shut and sprinkle with your favourite aromatherapy oil.

For The Pets

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Fun and games for your furry friends! For dogs, tie a few socks tightly together to make a tug-of-war toy. For cats slide in a toilet roll tube and fill with some stuffing (no, not the paxo type) and a pinch of catnip. Make sure to supervise your fur babies with your creations.

For the kids

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Get creative with the kids with a classic sock puppet! Give them funny faces with buttons, googly eyes, pipecleaners, pom poms or whatever else you can find. Why not make a box theatre and film your sock people in crazy conversation? Points awarded for the number of sock puns you can shoehorn in.

Next time we’ll have some fun uses for old socks for the crafters and DIYers among you! Don’t forget to send us your photos!

And if you’re more of the green-fingered type we think you might be interested in this article by sustainability heroes Yuzu Magazine on composting clothing – yes that’s right some old clothes can actually go in the compost pile! We were shocked too ?

Green Is The New Black

An image relating to Doris & Dude socks

Black Friday – 27th November 2020 – is now the busiest shopping day of the year, but we believe Green is the new Black and Green Friday is here!

We are joining the Green Friday movement, in asking shoppers to think before they spend. Instead of automatically heading to giant corporations for your Christmas gift shopping, take a look around you and find the little gems, the small businesses, trying to make a positive change with eco-friendly and sustainable goods. They need your support more than ever this year.

To do our bit, at Doris & Dude this year we’ll be donating one pair of our lush bamboo and organic cotton socks to the Newquay Drop In and Share Centre for every two pairs purchased in a single transaction over the Green Friday period (13th November – 4th December). DISC Newquay is a local charity that offers food, clothing and other support to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and we look forward to being able to help them serve our community.

You can also rest easy knowing that your Doris & Dude gifts are kind to the planet as well as your feet. Made with bamboo, organic cotton and recycled polyester, our socks (as well as being super lush and comfy) are a sustainable choice that won’t cost the Earth. With a huge range of fun designs for all the family you are sure to find a pair of socks to make you smile!

Check out our materials blogs to find out why the ingredients of our super soft sock formula are so important to us:

So make 2020 the year you ditch the frantic deal hunting and instead choose great quality products at a fair price, and look forward to a Christmas where your mindful and meaningful gifts do more.
