The Nicest Christmas Stockings to Hang Over Your Fireplace

Christmas stockings

Christmas stockings are like a little extra bit of Christmas cheer. They aren’t the main gift-giving tool, but they’re the icing on top of the wrapped boxes under the tree. There’s nothing cozier than seeing Christmas stockings hung on the fireplace (or wherever you can hang them) filled with chocolate and extra goodies.

Christmas Stockings for the Holidays

No fireplace? No problem! You can find many other places to hang your stockings, including on the wall. You don’t even have to poke any holes in the drywall. Just get heavy-duty adhesive wall hooks and put them anywhere you like. 

Without further ado, here is a list of some of the best Christmas stockings to buy this holiday season!

Christmas Plaid

Christmas plaid is perhaps the most popular during this cheerful holiday. You’ll find these patterns everywhere, and they certainly give your fireplace a traditional Christmas feel. These plaid stockings can be found at Target, and you’ll also be able to find matching tree skirts and other Christmas plaid items for a cohesive look!


Customized Name Stockings

But when they visit home for the holidays, it’ll be nice for them to see their names on stockings hanging on their childhood fireplace. 

Sweater Knit Stockings

Christmas is peak sweater weather—everyone is ready to be cozy, either literally or emotionally, regardless of what the literal weather is like. So, why not make your stockings reflect that feeling by buying a sweater knit stocking? These stockings are classic and comfy, and they aren’t over-the-top, either!
