The Kids’ Classic

Great Little Trading Co Father Christmas Stocking, John Lewis, £15

Keep it simple with this charming kids’ stocking. The animated Santa keeps it traditional but stylish, so it’s perfect for the modern family home.

Fawn Favourite

Christmas Silly Fawn Stocking, The Kid Collective, £25

We’re in love with this design – it’s unusual and adorable, and as an added bonus, is 100% organic cotton. If you’re not into the colour, it also comes in grey, blue and pink.

Unicorn Mania

Sass & Belle Unicorn Christmas Stocking, Very, £6.99

Unicorns are all the rage with kids at the moment, so this unicorn stocking could even double as another pressie for the unicorn fan in your family. Result.

Traditional Red

Valery Madelyn Set Of Two Christmas Stockings, Amazon, £18.99

There’s a lot to be said for keeping things classic. If that sounds like your family’s style, these knitted stockings with their cute poppoms are perfect to hang over the fireplace.

Simple But Effective

Personalised Reindeer Christmas Stocking, Modo Creative on Not on the High Street, £15

We love this stocking for its modern and simple style, but you can still make it your own with the personalisation. It’s made from heavyweight cotton and is large enough for big presents. A lovely stocking to reuse for years.


Fab-Yule-Us Stocking, Marks and Spencer, £12

Spread that festive cheer with this fabulous stocking – pom poms and a pun is the ultimate winning combo, particularly for die-hard Strictly fans.

Extra AF

Gold Sequinned Stocking, John Lewis, £18

Add a bit of sparkle to Christmas morning with a massive dose of sequins. If you’re not keen on the gold, it also comes in silver.

Red Rabbit

Rabbit Stocking, H&M, £8.99

How cute is this! The little face on this stocking is adorable and the ears are sending us over the edge. If you want more of it, there’s a whole range – aprons, mugs, plates and the like.

Something … Different

Monki Christmas Cat Stocking, ASOS, £12

This one is a little more unique. The black faux fur is a cool twist on the traditional stocking, while the cat is an interesting take on Rudolph. Also quite a lot more terrifying.

Simply Velvet

Sapphire Velvet Stocking, Navy, John Lewis, £15

Keep things simple with a few subtle details. This stocking is made from cotton velvet, which adds a luxe feel, and the star is that one extra thing to add some style. Christmassy without ruining your decor.


Personalised Pet Christmas Stocking, UKPrinted on Etsy, £7.95

We wouldn’t want to leave out the favourite, furriest family member. Your beloved pet deserves to be involved in the festivities too with its very own stocking. Maybe don’t just leave it hanging around filled with treats.
