All the buzz is certainly about Black Friday shopping right now, but I prefer to spend the day after Thanksgiving at home. Not shopping online, but decorating for Christmas! I add a little peppermint flavoring to my coffee, put on some holiday music and get to work. If I'm alone in the house, I can get most of it done in a day, but this year the boys were around to "help", so it's still in-progress. :)
One of the jobs still left is wrapping pine garland and lights around the banister, so our stockings can be hung on top. Since we don't have a fireplace mantle, I just tie the stockings onto the railing with ribbon. Having names on each stocking is such a fun way to make each person feel special, even before it's brimming with gifts on Christmas morning.
Merry Stockings offers a wide range of personalized stockings to suit your personal style and decor. For the traditionalist, there are classic velvet stockings. If you prefer a more modern look, consider the cable-knit or quilted cotton stockings.
For something truly unique, there are heirloom-quality wool stockings. They are available in designs such as snowflakes, stripes, and a variety of other Christmas icons too. These custom stockings are completely sourced and made in the USA.
And if you're one of the lucky ones with a mantle, don't forget the stocking hangers!
Question of the Day: If you're a parent, does your personalized stocking display your name or Mom/Dad?
