Knitted Reindeer Christmas Stockings
Made of thick, cable-knit yarn, these Christmas stockings are the ideal grace note for a traditional Christmas decor scheme.

At 46 centimetres, these stockings are just the right size to hang over a fireplace, but you could also display them on a Christmas tree, on your front door in the place of a festive wreath, or even at the end of a banister. Complete the look with green, red and gold decorations - a traditional garland with festive foliage will look great!

Red Velvet Alphabet Christmas Stockings
Sometimes it’s the little details that can really make a house feel like a home, so we were super excited when we came across these personalised Christmas stockings from none other than the trusty Marks and Spencer. The plush red velvet backing features a gold embroidered initial amongst tiny gold snowflakes, which gives the stocking a festive but simultaneously sophisticated, luxury look.

Personalised Reindeer Name Christmas Stockings
This Not On The High Street stocking is made from heavyweight white cotton fabric before being printed with your choice of name. It’s made by independent British brand Modo Creative and comes complete with a hoop for hanging, so you can have styled it at the end of your bed, on the back of the door, or even use it as a festive addition to a feature wall in place of a traditional piece of wall art. The best part? You can even request to have two bells attached to the top, so the stocking will make a festive jingle sound when you move it.
