I ruddy love Christmas so I apologise if I am bombarding you with with festive posts. I’m pretty sure you will all be getting in the spirit though if you little one’s have anything to do with it.

Today is all about Christmas stockings. Those cute things that will be hung ready for Santa to fill with goodies come Christmas eve. If you need suggestions for what to pop in them then check out Lolly’s stocking filler post earlier this week.

I normally make the girls stocking. I love creating them and sewing them is part of the Christmas fun for me. However, I am undecided as to whether to make a new one this year. Laura and I were having this debate the other day. Part of me wants to make a new one as I love choosing fabric and trimmings but part of me wants them to have the same one. Laura said she wanted Bertie to have the same stocking all her life and I love that. I still have my same red and white knitted stocking that I had every year as a kid. So whilst I deliberate on this matter I started searching for some cute ideas and came across a whole host of lovely stockings that I just had to share with you.

I am absolutely in love with this Liewood bunny stocking from Scandi Born. No it isn’ in festive shades but it is all out adorable. It is also reversible so they could have the cute grey bunny or it could be turned inside out to have a simple cream dot design.

This lovely bright red star design from John Lewis just looks so cosy and wintery. Perfect for hanging by the fire.

This fairisle knitted stocking from The White Company is the sort of classic design that could be used for years to come.

Who could resist a little reindeer stocking like this one from Marks & Spencer.

For you monochrome lovers I stumbled across these beauties from House Doctor at Monpote. Gorgeous simple designs with a cute leather stitches label reading ‘something extra from Santa’.

And finally I couldn’t not include a red and white striped number that harks back to my childhood favourite. This one can be personalised with your child’s name so Santa knows exactly where to leave the presents.
And I musn’t forget the most important question. Do you get a stocking yourself too?!
