While kids swoon over decadently wrapped gifts under the tree, adults delight at the special and intricate details that make the holidays so memorable. Needlepoint Christmas stockings are a traditional staple for the holidays, and like precious ornaments, they are an ode to the best things in life. Personalized needlepoint Christmas stockings are perfect for gifting during the holidays, adding that extra-special traditional touch to any holiday setting.
Impress your host with thoughtful personalized holiday stockings as a gift this season to show just how much you care. We’ve put together some tips on choosing and gifting the perfect needlepoint stockings.
The act of stuffing stockings with small gifts like toys, sweets, and fruits has been a long-standing holiday tradition. It is thought to have originated in the days of Saint Nicholas, when children would hang their everyday socks and receive small gifts and trinkets on Christmas Eve. Around the 1800s, holiday stockings replaced socks and became a decorative must-have for the holiday season.
Needlepoint holiday stockings are intricately detailed, with holiday scenes stitched by hand using 100% wool yarn. The back of the stockings is made from soft cotton velvet, making them a luxurious, thoughtful gift for the holiday season. Custom Christmas stockings are beautiful gifts for every member of the family and also make for an extremely personalized hostess gift during the festive season. Just as you could gift a monogrammed towel or monogrammed blanket, you can simply add the name or monogram of your family member or friend to a stocking to make gifting this season extra special. Better yet, personalized Christmas stockings bring joy every year when it’s time to unpack the holiday ornaments and decorations and stock the house with holiday cheer all over again.
Make it easy for Santa this year! Add a new tradition to your holiday season with matching monogrammed Christmas stockings for the whole family. You can choose from a variety of different fonts and colors to add personalized monograms to your stockings. Hang the stockings in order from youngest to oldest along your mantel for a classic and sophisticated holiday look. Come Christmas Eve, enjoy family time around your adorned fireplace for some traditional holiday fun.
There are so many fun and whimsical gifts, but a personalized needlepoint Christmas stocking is the ultimate gift that blends the traditional holiday spirit with a thoughtful and personalized touch. The holiday season is renowned for parties and socializing. Thank your hosts with personalized needlepoint Christmas stockings with their name or monogram hand stitched on it. Unlike a bottle of wine or baked goods, this gift will be enjoyed for years to come. Hosting your own holiday soiree? Add a classy and personal touch by welcoming your guests with their very own personalized holiday stockings hanging along the mantel. Guests will be honored by your attention to detail.
Personalized needlepoint Christmas stockings also make for beautiful gifts for newlyweds or as housewarming gifts. Make sure your loved ones enjoy their holiday season by giving them personalized Christmas stockings to hang in their new home or to celebrate their first holiday season together.
Just because you don’t have a fireplace or mantel doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the traditional holiday stocking fun. While most people use stocking hangers to line their mantel with fun and festive decorations, you can also hang holiday stockings anywhere that Santa can reach. Use stocking holders to hold holiday stockings in place on top of dressers or shelves, or simply fasten them to curtain rods, although be sure that you can reach them easily. Another idea for a more rustic and elegant look is to hang the stockings on string or twine underneath a mirror or holiday frame. Cabinet knobs and bedposts also make for fun and easily accessible hanging spots for holiday stockings.
When the fun is over and the holiday season has wound down, putting away your Christmas decorations and ornaments is the next big tedious task. Many ornaments are fragile and must be packed away with care. Needlepoint Christmas stockings are not an exception. To keep your holiday needlepoint Christmas stockings in the best shape, be sure to store your stockings flat and wrapped in paper. This extra care will ensure your holiday stocking remains pristine and keeps its shape. By wrapping the stocking in paper, you also ensure the delicate needlepoint stitching will remain intact and won’t be pulled by another ornament or decoration in the box.
Make this holiday season one to remember by gifting needlepoint Christmas stockings.
