REVIEW: Scruffs stocking fillers
You can see a whole range of Christmas gifts that are available on the Scruffs website. We had a look at some of the bargain goodies available for around a tenner and came up with this two pack of boxer shorts. Don’t ask me why the picture is upside down. I just don’t know.
You’ll be pleased to know that the Boy refused to model these for a picture, I’m not sure that’s the kind of blog I am looking to write. However, these hard wearing and well fitting boxers were reported to be comfortable to wear with a good waistband. They do not have an open or button fly, but I guess that’s just the style of this short. However, I think they’ll get some good use and wear a lot better than some of the flimsier cotton styles. They are nice and soft too!
Next was the three pack of Scruffs trainer socks. At £7.95 (with free delivery) these are excellent value. They fit slightly lower down the leg than conventional sports socks and have a decently breathable fabric that makes them great for playing sports as well as wearing out and about during the summer. They were reported to be nice to wear and made of a good stretchy fabric which was durable as well as providing a nice fit. This picture is also upside down.
Finally, I decided that this review shouldn’t be all about the Boy – so I also made sure that there was a little something for me – the Ultimate Thermal Socks. No comments about the picture please. At £6.95 they cost more than I would usually pay for one pair of socks, however when you commute by bike at this time of year, you will feel the value for money immediately, they are definitely an item I would buy more of. They have a luxuriously soft terry lining and the outer is a bulky yarn which in combination means you have super cushioned feet as well as them trapping a layer of warm air and keeping your tootsies toasty warm. I tried them out during one of our recent -1 degree nights and did not get cold feet at all on the ride home, a total win. They actually have a tog rating of 2.3, so they are like a little duvet for your feet. I adore them and, given the weather, have asked Santa for a couple more pairs so I can keep them on constant rotation during the winter. High praise indeed!
Why not get a sock in your stocking this Christmas? But hurry, not many days left for Christmas delivery!
