For Chris, choosing gifts is like writing a story: By matching the character to the gift, you learn more about people and what they value.

There's something special about traditional embroidered Christmas stockings hanging over a fireplace. No child or adult will reject a Christmas stocking filled with yummy treats, toys, or other stocking stuffers, even if it's made of plastic netting. But an embroidered holiday stocking, often personalized and made of felt or heirloom quality velvet and in deep Christmas colors, adds a warm, old-fashioned feel to Christmas eve, whether it's hanging on the fireplace or a hook on the wall. 

Crafts enthusiasts can hand-embroider their own stockings, and once upon a time, that, and browsing the department stores during the holidays, was the only way to have one. These days, beautiful Christmas socks made to be stuffed with small gifts and that look homemade with embroidery or needlepoint details can enter the home from vendors and crafters who sell their wares online.

Heirloom Red Velvet Christmas Stocking

The picture of this heirloom quality Christmas stocking is small, but it's worth taking a closer look at, because it's - in a word - gorgeous.

This handmade Balinese Christmas stocking features zardozi embroidery on red velvet trimmed in golden cloth. It's designed by an artisan descended from a long line of crafters who produced clothing for royalty. Parvez A. Warsi has decades of experience with embroidery and, along with a team of artisans, makes absolutely beautiful pieces designed to be used for generations.

Country-Look Stockings

For those interested in heirloom stockings, each one of these homestyle needlepoint Christmas stockings is stunning. Made of fabrics such as rich wool and velvet, they depict classic yet unique holiday designs.  Many of these can optionally be monogrammed.

The couple with Christmas tree in the snow is a perfect romantic choice for husbands, wives, girlfriends and boyfriends.

The beautiful angel stocking has a musical theme and gold accents.

And then there's the festive Nutcracker, Christmas tree and reindeer stocking, crammed full of ornaments and detail - in fact, ideal for cramming in stocking stuffers.

Simple Styles

If you're looking for simple, classic styles - nothing fancy, just basic colors and the option to get them embroidered with the name of a girl or boy - these are perfect.

Some styles allow you to choose your colors of stocking and/or embroidery - red, white, green, gold, silver.

Made of felt, there's a 12", 15", 19", and 24" design. These are very economical - perfect for buying a series for kids or adults.
