Unique Christmas Stockings

Beautiful Christmas Stockings in Every Style!

Hanging up Christmas stockings is one of my family’s favorite traditions! On Christmas Eve, every member of the family, right down to our dog, Oliver, has their photo taken placing their empty stocking onto a hook on the mantle, anxiously awaiting the overflowing version the next morning!

I was fortunate that my mother commissioned a craftswoman to knit a set of stockings for the five of us that will definitely be family heirlooms! But heirloom quality stockings don’t have to be hand made or super expensive! Take a look at these lovely choices:

Needlepoint Stockings

Horchow offers classic needlepoint stockings in five designs with free personalization!  It could take decades to needlepoint stockings like these by hand for your family! (Needlepoint Christmas Stockings, $55)

Stunning in Silver Hand Embroidered Stockings

Exquisitely hand embroidered stockings are crafted of luxurious satin and tissue fabrics and will add a touch of glamour to any mantle!  Four patterns are available, with complimentary personalization possible on three of the four choices. (Silvery Christmas Stockings, $80)

Whimsical Stockings
