These Unusual Christmas Stockings Have Personality!

When you think of Christmas stockings, do you immediately imagine a red and white stocking hung by the chimney with care? Then get ready to imagine something completely different. These unusual Christmas stockings break out of the traditional mold with bright and crazy colors, themes and characters. The stockings here are compiled from stores around the web, so you don't have to go to dozens of places to find something unusual. If you're looking for something unique for Santa to fill, you'll find it here.

Does Santa have anything big enough to fill this stocking?

Santa's elves are generally good at keeping secrets, but if one of them has tipped you off to let you know that Santa Claus will be delivering an especially large gift on Christmas Eve, this unusual giant Christmas stocking might be just the thing you need.

If you asked for a pony, this stocking still won't work, but it should do the trick for most large items you can get at the store.

Camo Bird Hunting Stocking

Perfect for hunters

Forget the traditional red and white design. What a real man wants hanging over the fireplace is something manly, like this camo stocking designed just for hunters. Made of felt, the stocking shows a hunter and his dog enjoying a great day hunting ducks.

Cowboy Boot Christmas Stockings

For cowboys and cowgirls

Santa better giddyup and get these stockings filled. Each one of these unusual Christmas stockings is designed to look like a cowboy boot. They're perfect for the Western lovers in any family.

KISS Rock Band Christmas Stockings

For rockin' around the Christmas tree

No one will accuse you of having plain, boring stockings if you hang up one of these beauties. You can either choose one of the two stockings that feature images of KISS rock band members, or you can choose the unusual stocking designed to look like one of Paul Stanley's boots. Perfect for any rock fan, these decorations will make you ready to "Rock and Roll All Nite."

Leg Lamp Christmas Stocking - From "A Christmas Story"

This unusual stocking is inspired by the 1983 holiday class, "A Christmas Story" about Ralphie Parker and his family. Anyone who has seen the movie undoubtedly remembers the scene in which Mr, Parker wins a contest. The "major award" turns out to be a leg lamp, which he proudly displays in the front window, much to the chagrin of other family members who aren't quite as impressed with the ugly light. Who knows what Santa will think when he sees this hanging near the fireplace?
