Classic Stocking Holder
Just bought my 15th stocking holder from Lands End and I love each and everyone of them! The quality of workmanship is outstanding and they are all so is unique. The free personalization is an added bonus. Hope I get more grandbabies so I can buy more!!!!

Nice, heavy and versatile
I bought these stocking holders with the intention of inserting photos of the recipients, but finding ones that fit was difficult. So, I went through last year's Christmas cards and cut out pictures of wreaths, scenes, etc. to fit. They turned out very pretty. I like the smaller size, also, since I had 13 of them hanging on the mantle! (I got them on sale.) I did have to take them down when they were filled, however. The pewter is dull, as I expected,, but with the rope it gives a more "country" look to them.

Exactly what we wanted for a Christmas keepsake.
My wife and I were looking for stocking holders that were functional as well as attractive and that could be passed on to our children in the years to come as a family keepsake. These stocking holders were the perfect choice. We had Hallmark Keepsake stocking holders but they were flimsy and weren't made to last more than one or two Christmas seasons.

Not what I expected
For the price I payed I had great expectations. The material is average.

Second batch of stocking holders not the same
I have quite a few of these and love them. This year I needed to add a few more as the family grows with new additions and when I opened the box one was perfect the other was not. The reindeer holder top was disconnected from the base. I guess the epoxy or whatever product was used to attach the two pieces had come undone. I was ready to go online and order another and return the broken one to find out they are sold out. I mean I will try to fix this and I hope it works. This stocker holders are fabulous but maybe they are cheapening the product over time?

Awesome for new families
My parents have so many stocking holders I can't count them all and their friends always loved them as gifts. Since a lot of my friends have started families I have done the same. In the past few years around this time of year I stock up (no pun intended) on stocking holders to give away. New families love these because anything with their newborns name on it is awesome to them, so I can never go wrong. I would say the quality is great, they are hefty, well crafted, detailed and engraveable. I have dropped my own a few times and they never broke. Made in the USA is a plus.

High quality gift
I disagree with another reviewer's sentiment that the "glue" that holds the base and top piece together is a design flaw. It isn't glue; it's an epoxy that binds the two pieces together, and they aren't moving unless you are trying with all your might to pull them apart. I've been buying these stocking holders for twenty years and have never had a problem. Also screwing pewter together doesn't make sense.
I love these stocking holders and strongly recommend them as gifts or family heirlooms.

Almost Perfect for Hanging Stockings
I ordered three of these during November of 2012. The tree, reindeer and snowman. Upon arrival I was very happy to see how heavy and sturdy the items were. I love that they are made in the USA and look beautiful on my mantel.
My only disappointment is how the base is attached to the decorative top. It appears that the base and top are glued together, not screwed together. The reindeer and snowman were okay, but the tree was loose. When I went back to exchange the tree was sold out and has not been available since the end of November. I used the tree stocking holder and it held up for this year but I am a bit weary that it will come apart in the future. I am working on a solution to make the item more sturdy so the item can provide many years of happy Holiday memories. I had to give three stars as I find this to be a major design flaw. I also noticed that others have commented on this issue as well. I hope Land's End works with the vendor on this one.

This stocking holder matches the picture in the catalog perfectly.
The weight and hook on this stocking holder was perfect. I have other LE stocking holders and the quality is equal to earlier purchases. The only wish I have would be that the LE finish match the older styles. This one had a shinier finish and the older versions had a brushed finish.
