I recently had a gift card left over from my birthday loot and decided to buy new Christmas stockings for our family. I think it’s the second thing I’ve ever bought from Pottery Barn because their prices are usually ridiculous, but these were super reasonable – $9 for the little ones, and $16 for the large ones, embroidery included and free shipping.
I like how they coordinate and look cohesive. I didn’t want anything fancy or with any designs, just our names. My husband and I had made stockings for each other when we were first dating, but we never made anything for our boys – I know, right, bad parents! – they had stockings but they were just plain. If you look at my oldest’s stocking (third from left) you will see a tiny stocking hanging from the same hook. He has a stuffed toy elephant that he loves so I bought a mini stocking and added an elephant pin in honor of Soft Elephant.
Our old stockings are hanging around the house – the boys’ plain stockings are hanging on their doors, mine is up by my desk, and my husband’s is by his desk.

LOVE it all. Thank you for reminding me that I can hang our old stockings in other places. This is the first year since our children were born that I made something different.
Much love and Merry Christmas.
Thank you, Marcia! We’ve got stockings on just about every door here 😀
So sweet! I want new stockings this year, I’m hoping to find some I like before Christmas arrives. hugs!
Hi Katherine, I’ve wanted new stockings for a while so I am happy I found these 😀
I like the colors and the new stockings. My Mom knit personalized stockings for each of us and our children and they are treasures. But it is always fun to add new ones!
