Why second guess yourself when picking out a last minute gift for the man on your list? Sometimes, predictable is perfect.

From Footwear News:
London-based men’s brand The Savile Row Co. recently surveyed its customers to find out what presents they prefer to receive during the holidays, and a whopping 80 percent said they’d rather get a predictable gift than something that they don’t want.

Among the different types of “predictable gifts,” the respondents said that the items they would most like to unwrap on Christmas are socks and grooming products. That was followed in a second-place tie by slippers and a wallet. (See our picks for slippers here and the best wallets here).

To help find that last-minute sock present for the guy in your life, FN has rounded up a selection of seven gift sets that — while practical — are anything but predictable.

1. Ace & Everett 3-Pack Box Set

These Italian-made dress socks feature a diamond motif in the design and come packaged a minimalist box, making them perfect for gifting.

2. Bombas Muhammad Ali 4-Pack

There’s a lot to like about this Bombas gift set: First, there’s the soft feel of the socks; second, they’re inspired by boxing great Muhammad Ali; and finally, the brand donates a pair of socks to the homeless for every pair sold.
