Guest Picks: Christmas Stockings for Stuffing

My family begins decorating for the holidays shortly. But I feel as the stockings constantly get overlooked. We’re supposed to hang on them from the chimney with care, right? Are you currently a conventional stocking lover, or would you prefer something more casual or casual? — Michelle from Stuttering Shell

Kurt Adler Elvis Gold Boots Stocking – $14.95

Got an Elvis lover in your life? This stocking is not a blue suede shoe, but it does take you back to Elvis and his embellished jumpsuit.

Pottery Barn

Velvet Stocking – $16

These are the stockings that my family owns (red with green trim and green with red trim). I really like that these stockings are a fantastic size and they’re not too fancy or fussy. The velvet feel is just the perfect touch. In the end, you need your tree, not your sleeves, to steal the show.

The Land of Nod

Dot and Stripe Stockings – $29

Polka dots and stripes done in various shades of green and red felt create for a contemporary layout. These are undoubtedly a fun take on the traditional Christmas stocking.

Pottery Barn

Length Stocking Holder – $34.50

Instead of monogramming your sleeves, why don’t you customize the stocking holder instead? I adore the idea of using a favorite photo to indicate that stocking belongs to each person.

West Elm

Velvet Stockings – $24

The contrasting pompom on the toe of these stockings is ridiculously cute. If I didn’t purchase new stockings this past year, I’d totally scoop up these for my family.

Kirkland’s

Merry Christmas Stocking Holder – $29.99

Never have I noticed a stocking holder like this before, but I enjoy the idea of not needing to put holes from the mantel or utilizing those heavy, clumsy stocking holders. At least this stand guarantees that your stocking will not drop from the fireplace.

Grandin Road

Enchanted Christmas Stocking – $79

This stocking yells anything but conventional. It’s semi-reminiscent of a court jester, but I really like its bright colors and glittery look. Should you decorate for the holidays with bold, bright colors, then this is the stocking for you.

The Orvis Company

Dog Breed Needlepoint Stocking – $39

My dogs have their own Christmas stockings — after all, they should not be excluded from all the holiday fun. I adore the appearance of these needlepoint stockings from Orvis. They’re a must-have for any puppy lover.

Kirkland’s

Western Boot Stocking, Red & Green – $9.99

I really like this whimsical, Wild West–themed stocking isn’t your traditional appearance.

Ballard Designs

Tabletop Stocking Holder – $39

Here’s another unique stocking holder. These could be left out annually or used for different things, like holding wreaths. The wrought iron appearance would fit nicely with all kinds of decor.

The Business Store

Appliqu├ęd Holiday Stockings – $25

These felt stockings are super cute and perfect for any child — or child in your heart.

Pier 1 Imports

Emerald Sequin Stocking – $25

This really is a stocking which is begging to be full of goodies! Santa surely won’t miss this because he comes down the chimney.

Ballard Designs

Personalized Christmas Stockings – $39

These whimsical stockings out of Ballard Designs are fun and funky. Plus, you can customize them at no cost! If you’re not a traditionalist when it comes to holiday decor, these might be ideal for you.

Glitter Bell Stocking Holder – $19.95

This stocking holder is fun. I really like the oversize glittery bell. It’ll remind you to believe in the soul of Christmas.

Cost Plus World Market

Twist to Santa Pocket Stocking – $9.99

This is a neat idea for a stocking. On Christmas Eve, your little one can leave a note for jolly ol’ Saint Nick.

Garnet Hill

Hable Christmas Stockings – $58

For those who desire something more than a plain design and enjoy vibrant design, these stockings from Garnet Hill are just perfect. Each family member could have their own layout, and all of them coordinate nicely with each other.

Pottery Barn Kids

Red Ribbon Velvet Stocking – $22

This striped stocking has just a hint of gingham across the top edge. It’s so easy yet so sweet at the exact same time.

Personal Creations

Metal Photo Stocking Holder – $14.99

This stocking holder frees up your mantel for more holiday decorating. You can customize each holder with a picture also. I adore the idea of keeping stockings near the fireplace, but marginally aside from the fireplace in the exact same time — particularly if you use your fireplace in the wintertime.

RedEnvelope

Custom Graphic Felt Stocking – $29.95

Here’s another option for pets. With a simple shape and a monogram, you’ve got a gorgeous stocking to hang from the fireplace for your treasured four-legged companion.

Etsy

Knit Christmas Stocking by Loops and Lines

There’s something warm and reassuring about a hand-knit Christmas stocking. It’s simple in design yet elegant in appearance. These are definitely worthy of being hung from the fireplace.
