10 Dec How To Choose The Right Christmas Stockings For Your Home
How do you find the perfect Christmas stockings for everyone? Here are tips and ideas on finding just the right holiday stockings for your home.
Christmas stockings hung up by the fireplace can add a touch of warmth to your holiday décor. They’re a lovely Christmas tradition, especially for kids, and in addition to being pretty to look at they’re an enjoyable part of the holiday season, making Christmas morning more magical and fun for the whole family.
Just like your Christmas tree, stockings are a big part of your home décor during the holiday season, particularity your fireplace mantel, staircase or wherever you choose to hang them up. Christmas stockings are also very personal, often representing the family member’s personality, interests and other unique characteristics. So how do you find the perfect Christmas stockings for everyone?
When shopping for new Christmas stockings make sure to get ones you really love with colors, designs and custom details you’ll enjoy putting up year after year. If the stockings are meant to hold majority of the gifts you give, then go with oversized Christmas stockings or ones that are a bit more roomy. If you only use stockings for small gifts or stocking stuffers, then you can go with something smaller or more delicate. The stocking holder you choose is also important, both in terms of look and functionality. First and foremost, make sure that it can hold both the stocking and its contents.
To create a coordinated look, you can get matching Christmas stockings for everyone in the family — and even a matching tree skirt and other holiday decor to complete your holiday family room look. Traditional colors, like red, green and white will never go out of style and the red velvet stocking with white fur trim will always remain a classic.
But today you can find Christmas stockings to match any holiday decor, from fancy and elegant stockings with beautiful sparkling details, to rustic burlap and knit stockings that add a bit of homey charm. There are many options for kids, too, with stockings featuring popular cartoons and movie characters or their favorite Christmas characters, like elves, reindeer and snowmen. And with plenty of ways to personalize your Christmas stockings you can make sure that they’re a hit with everyone in the family.
Here are some unique Christmas stockings ideas that will fit any home decor, style and personality.
