7 Best Christmas Stockings For Kids 2020 | The Sun UK

December 11, 2020

As we prepare our homes for Christmas, the stockings take pride of place.

In the famous words of author Clement Clarke Moore: 'The stockings were hung by the chimney with care'. To help, we've rounded up our top picks of Christmas stockings for kids to delight your little ones.

Stockings serve both a practical purpose – to hold presents – and a visual one.

They're part of the Christmas landscape of your home, so you'll want to choose Christmas stockings for kids that are aesthetically appealing, lovely to touch and work with your own festive theme.

The best Christmas stockings for kids also become heirlooms: these are the same stockings they'll use year after year, and will pass down in turn.

From personalised stockings to knitted ones, traditional designs to more contemporary ones, there's a Christmas stocking for you.

If you're fed up with Christmas stockings for the kids overflowing, then be sure to buy a giant one – they'll adore it, and not only because you can get tons more stuff inside.
