Christmas Morning Stockings
It’s Day Ten of Twelve Days to Get Ready for Christmas! Today we are sharing Stocking Stuffers for Christmas Morning
I made needlepoint Christmas stockings years and years ago when my boys were small. I never thought about the fact that the stockings were huge and took at least a year to make each one!
Yes, they took a year. But that’s probably because I was pregnant with Michael (our youngest) when I started making them. Andrew and Matt were two and one years old so I had my hands full.
I loved having a basket with my needlepoint sitting by the couch so I could pick it up at any time and add more stitches. I just never imagined how long needlepoint Christmas stockings would take to make.
At the time, the stockings seemed so big compared to my small boys. Back when they were small, I needed lots of small gifts to fill those big stockings. Today, it seems, the gifts have gotten bigger as have the boys.
The stockings below are in our primary bedroom. Every fireplace needs stockings, right? These, of course, don’t get filled on Christmas Eve. And there is one more on the right with Matt’s name on it.
The Best Stocking Stuffers
Today I am sharing stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers, big kids, tweens, and teens. You are sure to find something for all of the kiddos in your life whether you stuff a stocking or wrap a gift.
I am curious about the different ways stockings fit into your Christmas holiday. Do you celebrate with stockings? Does everyone have a stocking in your family, even your furry family members? Do you wrap your stocking gifts? Do you open them on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
I would love to know!
As you can see, I also love to use stockings in my Christmas decor.
In addition to ideas for gifts that go into stockings, I am also sharing some of my favorite stockings. I’ve got you covered whether you are using stockings for decor or for filling!

What a great roundup of ideas, I think my kids would love those shark socks!
Leslie, you know what they say: the only difference between men and boys is the price of the toys! In your case could, either size…. This has been a wonderful idea y’all had on the 12 days of Christmas. I have enjoyed the post from you both.
LESLIE, YOUR NEEDLEPOINT STOCKINGS ARE LOVELY. WHAT A WORK OF LOVE THEY WERE. AND DETERMINATION TOO. YOUR STITCHING IS BEAUTIFUL TOO. HAVING BEEN STUCK IN THE HOUSE FOR A YEAR, SO AFRAID OF THE COVID VIRUS, WITH NEARLY 200 BOOKS HERE AS I LOVE READING, AND MORE NEEDLEPOINT CANVASES OF FLOWERS SND BIRDS, ETC, INABLE TO READ OR NEEDLEPOINT, BECAUSE OF CATARACTS. I HAVE RECENTLE HAD SURGERY IN BOTH EYES, ONE AT A TIME OF COURSE, STILL USING DROPS IN EACH EYE BUT ON DIFFERENT SCHEDULE, HAVE BEEN ABLE TO START AND READ SEVERAL CHAPTERS OF NEVER COME BACK BY DAVID BELL, PRETTY GOOD, AND HAVE DONE SOME STITCHING. A MIRACLE FOR ME. YOU ARE INCREDIBLY TALENTED AND A GREAT MOM AND HOMEMAKER. MAY YOUR HOLIDAYS BE WONDERFUL. MARIANNE
Wow! So many ideas-THANK YOU!
A beautiful White tablescape.
I am a needlepointer and am impressed that you made all three of those in one year. I know the time that goes into making those! Beautiful!!
Wow thank you so much! I really appreciate that
We still do stockings for our kids and grandkids. Everyone is always excited about their goodies! The rule we made was – you can get up any time you want and open your stockings but Mom and Dad get to sleep till 7:00am. Of course with all the giggling and squealing, whose really still sleeping? Our kids adopted this rule for their kids now!
Oh I love this Rennee- it’s always so fun to hear other family Christmas traditions. And the 7 am rule sounds smart! 😂❤️
After my kids became adults I thought I wouldn’t do stockings one year at Christmas. Man did I hear about it! They told me the best gifts always were in the stockings and how could I not have stockings!! Well needless to say I have always done stockings at Christmas after that. 😂
Haha that is how it goes! Stockings are always such a hit, definitely a favorite in our house too ☺️😂
We still have stockings and our kids are 50ish. One year I decided that everyone should participate in filling the
stockings. So they buy one thing for each stocking and it is such fun for all of us. Even my hubby buys for the
stockings. With new members joining the family I bought everyone a new stocking and we coordinate now.
Hi Sandy! Wow, love this idea. Loving how the whole family participates- how fun!
