The holiday season is like a free pass to be as cheesy as you want to be. Ugly Christmas sweaters? Dangling candy cane earrings? A big ol’ Santa hat? Check, check and check.

Why not don your gay apparel all the way down to your toes? Amazon has a slew of Christmas socks with hundreds of happy reviews, and many pairs will still arrive in time to go under the tree! Or you can just rock them yourself while you sip cocoa by the fire and watch ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ for the gazillionth time.

Here are our favorite, most joy-filled Christmas socks available right now on Amazon. But step on it — you have to order fast if you want festive feet by the 24th!

Gift them as a stocking stuffer or buy a package for the whole family to enjoy on Christmas. Perhaps give them to a Scrooge in your life! It’s hard to feel humbug about being stuck at home for the holidays when you have tidings of comfort and joy on your tootsies.
