For many, the best thing about Christmas is finding out what Santa brought for them on Christmas morning. Kids of all ages get excited to see beautifully wrapped gifts hidden beneath the Christmas tree and their stockings filled with goodies. There’s something about Christmas morning that brings out the kid in all of us — the excitement, the joy, the family traditions.
Hanging Christmas stockings for each member of the family is a wonderful tradition that adds a bit of magic to Christmas morning. Typically hung by the fireplace, the stockings are filled with small gifts, treats and toys. Families without a fireplace can still enjoy the Christmas stocking tradition by hanging their stockings on the staircase, the windowsill or even from hooks, doorknobs and bedposts — there are many creative ways to hang them.
While most people keep the same Christmas stocking for years, there are times when you need to get new ones or update the whole family set. When you start a family or a new child joins the family, it’s time to choose new stockings either for the whole family or just the kids or parents.
If you’d like to update your Christmas stockings this year, here are some great options for your kids (or a kid at heart).
The Best Christmas Stockings For Kids
The great thing about Christmas stockings is that there are so many options and you really can’t go wrong with anything you choose. You can go with traditional red velvet stockings with white fur trim, a fun elf feet with suspenders set, or more trendy options such as this fun striped elf style stocking.
You can match the stockings to go along with your existing Christmas decor or go with a completely new look that will set them apart from the rest of your family room. You can even use oversized stockings to surprise your little ones with and fill them with all of their gifts.
One option that’s sure to delight kids of all ages are personalized character Christmas stockings. There are absolutely no rules that say dad can’t have a Star Wars Yoda or Darth Vadar stockings, if that’s what his heart desires. Options like Mickey and Minnie Mouse stockings or the popular Disney Princesses will delight older kids and adults who might be kids at heart. The best part is that you can easily personalize every stocking by adding each person’s name.
If you’re looking for more generic holiday characters, you’ll find plenty of options as well, with cute Polar bear, penguin, reindeer, fox, snowman and Santa designs in our Santa Claus Lane stocking collection, adorable gingerbread and elf boys and girls along with Santa and Mrs. Claus in our Christmas Family stockings set, and even fun 3D musical character stockings that will delight younger kids.
Whether you’re looking for one stocking or a new set for the whole family, you’re sure to find plenty of options your kids (or the kids at heart) will love.
