Holiday Stockings

Put an emphasis on the fun of the holidays with Christmas stockings. Since the end of the 19th century when illustrator Thomas Nast depicted Santa Claus delivering treats to stockings hung to warm over the fire, the tradition of hanging stockings on Christmas Eve has thrived. Whether you hang yours by the chimney with care or arrange them in a more unconventional way, there’s no denying that getting a full stocking on Christmas morning inspires pure joy. You can help your children create wonderful stocking memories of their own with designs that feature traditional Christmas characters or other exquisite winter art. Our beautifully designed, expertly crafted stockings add flair and style to your holiday decorating scheme. Christmas stockings are available in blues, greens, reds, and other vivid colors and a wide range of materials.


Pottery Barn Kids offers all kinds of stockings, including a Star Wars™ stocking collection, glittery pastel stockings, velvet stockings and a variety of quilted stockings. The faux fur reindeer and puppy faux fur stockings are endearing to any child who adores plush toys. Dancers will love the ballerina designs, while animal lovers are sure to delight in felt reindeer appliques on stockings. You don’t have to wait until Christmas Eve to display these eye-catching Christmas stockings. They can go up when the rest of your holiday decor is displayed throughout your home. That way, you can enjoy the festive feeling they’re sure to bring to any room throughout the season. They can contribute just the right ambience for sipping hot chocolate while enjoying Christmas movies, singing carols together as a family and writing letters to Santa Claus. All parts of the holiday are even more special with stockings.


Treat your children to something really special when you choose to personalize their holiday stockings. You can add kids’ names to knit stockings with trains, reindeer, snowmen, snowflakes and Santa himself. Whether you’re preparing for your baby’s first Christmas or starting a new tradition for older kids, most children are enthralled to see their names on stockings. After all, having their names embroidered makes it easier for Santa to leave just the right treats they’ve requested. That’s setting the scene for a real silent night!


Share some festive time with your family around another heartwarming tradition too. Use your holiday stockings as part of your yearly holiday photographs. You can use the same stockings each year for scale to show how much your children grow over the years, or you can debut new holiday stockings in your Christmas photographs each year. Stage the photo by hanging the stockings above the head of each family member in the picture, or you can simply have the stockings in the background as part of your Christmas scene. This added touch makes taking pictures extra memorable, and you may even have Santa leave kids a couple of early treats like toys and books in their stockings for being such good sports for your Christmas card photos.


Stockings aren’t just for kids either. Expecting parents may choose to personalize their stockings with “Mom” or “Dad.” You can opt for decorative stockings that match your furniture or choose ones in pink or blue to celebrate your expected bundle of joy. Find Christmas stockings with pleasant textures, like our faux fur collection, Fair Isle knit stockings or felt stockings with appliqued characters like Santa and his reindeer or a jolly snowman.


Holiday stockings are among the most recognizable signs of Christmas, along with festive trees and Santa. No Christmas is complete without the perfect stocking for each family member. Prepare your children for Santa’s arrival with a stocking that’s perfectly aligned with their interests and favorite characters. Choose a matching set for each family member if coordinating the holiday decor is important to you, or opt to have a mismatched group that reflects the individuality of each member of your family. Whatever you decide to do, remember to have fun and celebrate the season with these beautiful stockings.
