It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That song was just playing in my head as I was researching the best Christmas stockings and holders.
My kids watch holiday movies all year round. It is my most wonderful time of the year. Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved this holiday.
Some fond memories I have involve the stocking. We always got to open our stocking gift in the morning before breakfast and sometimes it was one of my favorite toys.
My brother and I got a lot of G.I. Joe or Star Wars action figures and in our later years my mom would put gift cards in the stockings.
Here are some top rated Christmas stockings for you to consider.
Best Needlework Christmas Stockings
You can tell a lot of work goes into making needlework stockings.
They are very detailed and I consider this style to be very “classy”. I love the one’s with Santa Claus and the snowman. Look at some of these pictures closely and check out all the fine details and the colors.
You can also get some of them personalized with any name and that just adds an extra touch to it to make someone’s morning even more special.
Do you think these are Santas best Christmas stockings?
Best Felt Applique Christmas Stockings
Have you ever tried putting together a felt applique stocking before?
These are great because they are a kit which means you put it together yourself. It comes with all the materials and instructions and you can even personalize it anyway you want.
My children’s grandmother made one for each of them and personalized it with their name and the date which is really special. I’m sure they will have those for the rest of their lives.
I really, really like these selections and consider them to be top rated Christmas stockings.

Best Christmas Stocking Holders
I’m not a big fan of holding stockings up with a thumbtack. It just doesn’t look right. I know you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do but please consider this first.
Check out some of the options below for inspiration before you do any tacking. These are really cool (I almost said cute) and they will fit perfectly on your mantle or counter.
They are also safe so long as you don’t put 25 pounds of candy and gifts in them!
Best Jumbo Giant Christmas Stocking
Have you ever seen anything like this before! Look at it! It’s as big as a kid!
Pretend you are a child again. How neat would it be to get a stocking like this filled with candy and toys!
What a fun way to do stockings during the holiday season!
Believe it or not, this is one of the top rated Christmas stockings this year.
Best Christmas Stocking Instruction Books

I’m not the kind of person who can just build or create something out of scratch all from my head. No way!
Here are some instruction books for your to check out.
You’ll find a book for everything from knitting to cross-stitching.

Best Christmas Stockings and Holders For 2016
What are you going to do this year? Make one or buy one?
We own a few store bought and we also own some that have been knitted or constructed by a grandparent for our kids.
Both work really well and are great Christmas decorations for our home.
Our kids stockings are all homemade with their names and everything. They will enjoy those for many years. They become sort of like collector items.
I personally don’t have any creativeness in me to make my own.
I rely and trust on others to create the best Christmas stockings and holders for me and I’ll gladly buy it.
