Is there anything more iconically Christmas than stockings hung on the fireplace? Stockings are often overlooked in the holiday hubbub; they’re a Christmas morning staple, but what’s under the tree takes center stage. The contents of the stockings are usually last minute, whatever-was-left-in-the-dollar-bin-at-Target, and although we love us some Target, stockings are long overdue their time in the spotlight. Once you’ve got some truly awesome stocking stuffers, it’s time to focus on the stockings themselves.
Every kid’s taste in stockings is different. Chances are the patchwork stocking with the vintage lace their grandma made for them isn’t their style (no offense, grandma). Kids deserve stockings that reflect their personalities, be it bedecked with pom-poms, rainbow-striped with unicorns, or so fluffy it looks like you cut off Bigfoot’s foot and hung it on the mantle. There are so many choices out there and time is running out before the big day, so before you panic and decide to use their actual socks, or worse, buy your entire family boring stockings — take a breath. Smell the pine-scented candle, take a look at your bare mantle, and dive into our roundup of the best Christmas stockings your kids would love to wake up to. Whether your kid’s style is more Anthropologie or Target, we’ve got the stocking for them, so you can relax and enjoy the look on their faces when they see their awesome new Christmas additions. You might even want to leave them up year-round. Just a suggestion.
