Currently Coveting...Etsy's best Christmas stockings (2011)

I don't know why, but my family is obsessed with Christmas stockings.  My mom craftily made personalized stockings for us when we were little (mine has a kitty coming out of a present, with lace and bells and glittery beads - yes, I might have helped her).  Every year, in addition to buying gifts for each other, we also draw names for "Stockings."  This helps take the burden on my sweet Mom, and allows the kids (now that we are old enough) to get into the stocking stuffer action.  It is one of my favorite family traditions.  Since the Knight and I have been married (7 years - woot woot!), every holiday season I have stalked the stores and the internet trying to find the perfect stockings for us.  When we had Caroline, it became even more challenging because I wanted to get her the "perfect" stocking, but also didn't know how many other kids (if any) we would have.  Of course, any stockings for my kids needed to coordinate, if not match.
I think I bought the 3 of us some "placeholder" stocking last Christmas at Target, but I am not convinced that they are the "ones." Once I break out the holiday decor, I am going to have to reevaluate my stocking situation. :)  Especially since little miss Vivi's arrival is right around the corner. :)

I found a TON of awesome options on Etsy and wanted to share the fruits of my search.  Seriously talented people out there.  It blows my mind all the handiwork and creativity that can be discovered on that website.

I love your blog!

These are great, definitely giving me good ideas. I just received an amazing pair of Christmas stocking from The Bootstrap Project. Its a non-profit organization I recently discovered that I'm kind of obsessed with. They create economic empowerment by partnering with artisans making culturally relevant art. My stockings came all the way from Tajikistan and they are beautiful!

Thanks!

Stumbled upon your blog while searching for the perfect Christmas stocking...love it!

I have the same dilemma regarding having future kids, but not knowing names, etc & I want all to match.

Another thing I'm wondering is, as a young 30 something and our daughter being 5 months old, should our stockings read our first names or "Mom" and "Dad?"

Interested in your input! Merry Christmas!

Hi there! I happily stumbled upon your blog while searching for the perfect stocking.

I also struggle with what to do as far as coordinating stockings since my husband hope to add to our family of 3 (really 4 if you include our dog :)

Another thing I wonder about is if, as a young 30 sonething couple and our daughter being 5 months, our stockings should read "Mom" and "Dad" or our first names? It feels weird to have mom & dad, but as our daughter grows older, I feel like it'll be weird to have our first name.

Would love to know if you've thought about that and know your thoughts!

Merry Christmas!!
