The low maintenance cactus doesn't ask for much, and that makes it a great house plant for beginners. Still, if watering a plant at all seems like too much work for you, you can always opt for a nice pair of succulent socks.

The fancy footwear by DOIY studios requires no sunlight or watering—and it even keeps your feet warm. They come in two varieties, Mammillaria and Astros, and the cotton-polyester blends are dotted with minimalistic designs that mirror the needles on a cactus.

You can grab a pair at Firebox, and if you're interested in more hosiery that looks like other things, check out these socks that appear to be big soft rolls of sushi.
