There's nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning to a new pair of slippers from Santa Claus. These Get Comfy Slipper Socks are the best knitted slippers to surprise your family with on the big day. They're fitted enough to not get in the way of daily actvities, but comfy and bulky enough to deliver some much-needed warmth during the winter chill. If you're not looking to gift these slippers for the holidays, they would be just as wonderful in any other color of the rainbow; try your loved one's favorite color!
