Needlepoint Christmas Stocking
Perfect in every way!
I have been purchasing the Lands End Needlepoint Christmas Stockings for several years, adding as babies are born, or giving as gifts. I proudly display and fill 14 at the present time and everyone entering our home at Christmas comments on how beautiful they look running down our staircase, each displaying the name of a family member and topped with a small stuffed animal with only the head peeking out! (they hold great stocking stuffers usually found at Lands End - socks, mitts, hats, slippers, etc) On Christmas Day, it is the first thing that our family members ask to open and they are a main part of our traditions, which will carry on for generations to come. Beautifully made, gorgeous to display and oh so Christmasy!

It's a" WONDERFUL" stocking!
I have to say that I am so very, very pleased with these stockings...I am a Grandma again this year! That makes 5 Grandbabies for me! But I started the process years ago when I got these stockings for my own children ( when they were still children), and now I am so HAPPY to be able to pass this tradition on to my new daughter and son in law as well as their new children! I have to say that Lands End has really made this a very special part of our Christmas Holiday! These stockings are wonderfully well made...to last from generation to generation, you can not tell which are the older stockings and which are the brand new ones.
The embroidery is very well crafted and looks just beautiful...I only hope they continue to carry this product because I hope to be purchasing more and more of them! Fabulous and Charming!

First time buying from lands end. These are really great quality. Velvet back is very nice. And love that there is free monogramming.

My best holiday purchase!
These stockings exceed my expectations. With the addition of spouses and grand kids, I decided to invest in new stockings that would all match in style. My adult children love, love, love them. And, my son in law even commented how each one fits the individual's personality!

Bring back more solid colors
Just purchased another stocking to add to my collection. I have been ordering these for many years as our family grows. They are so elegant looking. My collection consists of the solid dark blue background, and the solid cream background, however the only one left in solid color is the Santa with Reindeer. Some of your newer designs and colors just aren't as "classy" looking as they used to be. Please consider adding a few more solid background colors to the choice for next year...I'm sure I will need more!

Not a 'GENEROUS" Size
This review is on the train stocking. The description states "generously sized" and this one is not. There is a disclaimer that also states each one is uniquely different. Okay. I still think the dimensions should be accurate. The opening of the stocking is a small 6-3/4. Perhaps it's size is considered generous in China.
I'm not entirely certain it's "hand stitched" as well, although it is wool. At least that is correct. Disappointing, and definitely not heirloom quality.

Worth every penny...
My own children have special stockings made for them many years ago and those will stay in our house, but I thought the tradition of Lands End stockings would be good to start for those new to our family, and for my kids when they start having Christmas in their own homes. I bought my first monogrammed stocking last year for my son's fiancee who was about to join our family. This year I bought another for my daughter's boyfriend who will also join our family. I also bought one for my son who will have Christmas in his own home this year with his wife (and the stocking we got her last year!). The quality of the stockings is excellent, the designs are fun and there are plenty to choose from. I agree with another reviewer - you get what you pay for. (These are worth the $$, monogramming included. And if you take advantage of free shipping or a percentage-off-sale, it's a bonus.) The stockings I ordered were perfect; however, if they were not perfect in any way I would not hesitate to return them. No one is better than Lands End about returns and customer satisfaction.

I started buying these for family members 30 years ago, ordering a new design as each new family member joined us. Today I ordered number 18 for the newest grandchild. One son-in-law was worried about future stockings for kids, he was thrilled to discover his boys would match their parents on the fireplace. The stockings still look great and they have weathered 12 moves, including overseas. Thanks for providing 30 years of great quality and memories.

We have these beauties for each of our family members. They are beautiful and very well made. Purchased three 10 years ago, and then again more recently, and the quality is the same. I am very satisfied with this product.
