An arrangement of red Christmas stocking by the fireplace is not only a wonderful decorative eye-catcher, but also creates a traditional Christmas atmosphere in the room. If you prefer a more minimal style of Christmas decoration, plain Christmas stockings in grey or white might appeal to you.
Carefully selected gifts to fill a beautiful Christmas stocking are a great present idea that you can prepare for you children. Children’s Christmas stockings with bold colours or Christmas motifs are particularly popular for the youngest in the family.
Christmas stockings invite you to be creative and can be perfectly tailored to individual family members. For example, Christmas stockings for kids can be filled with sweets, toys and books, whereas Christmas stocking fillers for teenagers could be their favourite magazines or fashion accessories. Adult Christmas stocking fillers could include small gifts such as candles, scented soaps and creams or small decorative accessories for the home.
In addition to small gifts, you could also fill family Christmas stockings with small pieces of paper with activities that you can do together for Christmas or for the following year.
The traditional place to hang Christmas stockings is from the mantel above the fireplace, but they can also be hung in other areas of your home. For example, they can be hung from a coat rack, hanger or from a shelf in your living room.
Christmas stockings are designed with a small loop, which makes them easy to hang on a peg on Christmas stocking hooks.
There are several popular legends that explain where the tradition of the Christmas stocking comes from. Most of them are about Saint Nicholas who threw gold through the window of a poor family, which ended up in a sock beside their fireplace. It then became a popular tradition for children to hang socks by the fireplace so that they would also receive gifts.
In the beginning, ordinary socks would be hung by the fireplace, but over time, people began to sew special Christmas stockings themselves which were used specifically for this purpose.
