15 Personalized Christmas Stockings That Will Deck Out Your Mantle!
Adding the names or initials of your loved ones makes unwrapping those stocking-stuffers just a bit more special. You'll treasure them year after year.
1 TARTAN AND PINE
For a forrest farmhouse vibe, this tartan stocking is made even woodsier by a slivered log name tag and pine cone charm.
2 RED AND WHITE MONOGRAM
Subtly-patterned cherry red stockings act as bright and bold pops of color against a wash of white.
3 POM POM AND PINE
Pom poms are fun on their own — but pom pom adorned pin stripe stockings with pine wood tags? That's just genius.
4 BLACK AND WHITE PORTRAIT TAGS
Here's a way to make sure that absolutely no one gets confused about whose stocking is whose — just print out individual portraits of your loved ones and attach with a pretty ribbon. This is also an easy way to update the stockings you already have.
5 CHRISTMAS SHAPES
Mark each stocking with a festively-shaped tag, like a star or dove, and then assign a shape to each family member. Buy extra tags and either tape or loop them onto each present. Ask your family to go "present hunting" — every present marked with their shape is theirs to open.
6 BURLAP TWINKLE
A Christmas-light ladder illuminates the burlap stockings from behind, so that the monograms are aglow. The best part? These stockings don't require sewing. Not a stitch.
7 ASSORTED CHRISTMAS SCENES
There's a pattern for everyone in the family. A tip: Snag (and personalize) that blue snowman stocking for your resident Frozen enthusiast.
8 RUFFLE RED BURLAP
A brown burlap stocking can be lackluster, but dye it red, add a ruffle and use a swirly font for embroidering names and you'll have yourself a feminine decoration fit for display.
9 LUCITE MONOGRAM TAGS
Acrylic is everywhere these days — why not incorporate the modern trend into your Christmas stockings? These peek-a-boo tags can also be taken off and reused as birthday gift toppers or backpack keychains.
10 CHIP BOARD LETTER CHAIN
This stocking personalization tip is seriously cost effective. Take a trip to your local arts and crafts store, pick up a bag of chip board letters and arrange the letters into your loved ones' names. Then, secure them together like a chain. Who knew chip board letters could look so glam?
11 GLITTER AND BLUSH MONOGRAM
Pretty in pink meets a glitter monogram — you might want to consider this sparkly blush option for your favorite girly girl.
12 REVERSE APPLIQUÉ HELVETICA
These stockings might look complicated, but trust us — these inside-out stockings are definitely doable. When you make multiples in your color scheme (like the bright blues and greens featured here), you'll have a cohesive row of personalized stockings that complement each other perfectly.
13 TWINE INITIAL PIN
Here's another way to personalize your stockings without splurging on new ones: Simply wrap a wooden letter in twine and then fasten or glue a safety pin to the back.
14 VELVET AND JINGLE BELLS
If you have little ones, just think about how these classic jingle bell stockings will grow with them. This Christmas, they'll use them as toys, but in a few years, they'll dive through them on the hunt for their favorite stocking stuffer goodies.
15 LINEN, RIBBON AND CHARMS
Dangling charms aren't just for bracelets — these tiny gold adornments, offset by shimmery ribbons, are a festive reminder of the gifts yet to come.
