Ornaments drip from pine-needled boughs fettered with Christmas lights. Tree sap whistles and snaps in the flickering fireplace. What’s missing in this holiday scene? Christmas stockings, of course! Christmas stockings are the cherry on top of your holiday decor. Stockings are also a way of celebrating family. Whether a newborn baby or a newly-inducted stepmom, everyone receives a stocking, his or her name cordially nailed over the fireplace with all the others. A great addition to any holiday collection, personalized stockings are a heartwarming way to say, “Welcome to the family.”
The standard red-and-white stocking is a classic, but if you venture beyond its conventional design, you’re in for a stocking that is truly unique. Ornate and festive needlepoint stockings portray cheery Christmas scenes, each tenderly enveloped in a textured border. The needlepoint technique allows for minute detail, even in the shadows of a snowman’s body or the rosiness of Santa’s cheeks.
A person with a minimalist sensibility will appreciate the stark shapes of the felt Christmas Moments Stockings. Making use of the seasonal color scheme, each stocking employs dynamic reds, greens, and whites. Fluttering doves, perching cardinals, and smiling snowmen are just some of your choices, each portrayed with simplistic finesse.
The velveteen Christmas Present Stockings portray no pictures but are festooned with bells, braided rope, and sequins. This is just the stocking for that avid decorator in your life! A small, green present shimmers just below the cuff, where a name can be embroidered in stylish cursive.
The needlepoint, Christmas Moments, and Christmas Present stockings can all be personalized with a name of your choosing. So what are you waiting for? Welcome someone special into the brood (or just get a much-needed update from those “classic” stockings!) Even a roaring fire and a well-lit tree are just not the same without them.
