Stocking Holders - No Fireplace Mantel? No Problem!
Stocking Holders -- Stands, Trees and Racks
For those of us without fireplaces, stocking holders are still available. Kids can be convinced that Santa knows how to get around the "no chimney" issue because he's resourceful. However, without a mantel, where will they hang their stocking so Santa can fill them?
Hang them on stocking holder stands, trees or racks, of course! Below is a nice collection of stand stocking holders that the kids will love. Find one that fits with your Christmas decorating style and you'll be ready for Santa this Christmas Eve!

Metal Stocking Holder - Stocking Holders for those without a Mantel

Deciphering the Poem
"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..."
Not "on" the chimney or mantel but "by" the chimney.
You can use a stand to hang the stockings. Case closed!

Stocking holder trees, stands and racks are freestanding. They won't damage the wall or woodwork like a nail, pushpin or hook will. They are a wonderful alternative whether you have a fireplace mantel or not.

5 Ideas for Hanging Stockings without a Mantel
- If you have a staircase railing, tie them to the banister with a ribbon.
- Use traditional stocking holders on a counter or piece of furniture like a bookcase or sofa table that's close to the tree.
- Buy or make a wood wall plaque and use peg hooks the stockings can hang from.
- Lay the stockings under the Christmas tree, awaiting Santa. Christmas morning, lay them on top of the brightly wrapped packages.
- Hang them from the back of dining room chairs using ribbon.
