Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: I'm always stealing my husband's socks (I'm convinced my dryer actually eats all of mine), so this year I'm going to give him a gift that's really for both of us. This Pair of Thieves holiday set offers 12 different colorful knit styles which come encased in cute holiday ornaments. My plan is to hang them all on the tree Christmas morning and see how long it takes him to notice.
