It’s the most wonderful time of the year to decorate your fireplace mantel with Christmas stockings. And the great thing about this Christmas tradition is that you don’t need to fork over money for new ones every year (or decade even).
If this is the year for a stocking refresh and you’re on the hunt for the best Christmas stocking ideas, I got you. I searched high and low for various Christmas stocking styles to spark some holiday cheer (and fit all of those stocking stuffers, of course). Plus, I have some tips along the way to save (like picking up in store at World Market instantly saves you 10%).
1. Aspen 2-Pack Traditional Tree Knit Stockings
For cozy Christmas stockings with a handmade feel, we like the Aspen Traditional Tree Knit Stockings ($24.99, Home Goods). These stockings come in a 2-pack, making them $12.50 per stocking. From rustic to cottage-core holiday decorations, these stockings make for a stunning focal point on any mantel.
2. Marilee Christmas Stocking with Letter Charm & Rusty Bells Ornament
These budget-friendly Marilee Home stockings ($15.95, Walmart) are made from a cotton material with a letter charm. They also have rustic bells hanging from a button detail. Despite their handmade look, these Christmas stockings don’t come with a super high price tag.
3. Habibee 3-Piece Christmas Stockings with 3D Plush Gnomes Santa
If gnomes are a staple in your holiday decor, consider these three-dimensional gnome stockings from Habibee ($13.99, Amazon). The 3-pack features three different — yet complementary — Christmas stockings. And at $13.99 (that’s $4.66 per stocking), these stockings are one the cheapest options on our list.
4. Wondershop Knit Monogram Christmas Stocking
The Knit Monogram Christmas Stocking ($15, Target) is a classic style with a minimalistic initial letter design that differentiates each family member’s stocking. The best thing about this Christmas stocking is that it’s stylish enough to feel on-trend, but it’s also timeless. So you’ll have it for years to come without feeling the need to spend money on new styles.
5. Pottery Barn Cozy Teddy Candy Cane-Shaped Stocking
It’s a little more splurge-worthy, but this Cozy Candy Cane-Shaped Stocking ($24.50, Pottery Barn) is unique and durable. Plus, if you’re a new Pottery Barn card member, you can earn 10% back in savings on this purchase.

6. Swtroom 4-Pack Christmas Stockings
If you’re looking for cheap Christmas stockings, opt for a multipack. The Swtroom Christmas Stockings ($32.99, Walmart) come in a 4-pack and add up to about $8.25 each. Also, they make for excellent gift bag or basket alternatives.
7. Tabknits Quilted Christmas Stocking
Another fun Christmas stocking idea is the trendy quilt stocking ($42, Etsy). If you’re crafty, you could upcycle a quilt of your own and transform it into a Christmas stocking. Or you can buy from Etsy to save time and support a small business. The Tabknits Quilted Christmas Stocking is made-to-order, so you should expect a 3- to 4-week turnaround time. A single stocking costs $42, but there are bundling options that drive the cost per stocking down.
8. Felted Wool Pom Pom Christmas Stocking
Forget the traditional red and green holiday hues and opt for something a little more colorful. We think World Market’s Ivory Pom-Pom Christmas Stocking ($29.99, World Market) is a great choice. World Market members can receive 10% off if they pick it up in the store.
9. Cozy Teddy Faux Fur Dog Stocking
The Pottery Barn Cozy Teddy Faux Fur Dog Stocking ($24.50, Pottery Barn) is worth every penny (and has sold out in past years). PB cardholders can save 10% if they use their card.
10. Wondershop Sherpa Dog Bone Christmas Stocking
If you love the Pottery Barn bone stocking but it’s a little out of your price point, Target has an excellent alternative. The Sherpa Dog Bone Christmas Stocking ($15, Target) features that same bone-shaped silhouette with a fluffy sherpa fabric. It’s also roomy enough for a toy and some treats.
11. Artisan De Luxe Tassel Glitter Stocking
For someone who has Anthropologie taste but is on a budget, check out the Artisan De Luxe Tassel Glitter Stocking ($12.99, Marshalls). It’s made from a woven cotton material that looks like denim, and it has a fun rope Christmas tree applique on top.
12. Cupcakes & Cashmere Cuffed Teddy Stocking
Teddy stockings reign as one of the trendiest Christmas stocking styles, so enter the Cupcakes & Cashmere Cuffed Teddy Stockings ($12.99, Marshalls). It packs a punch with its textured material, cuffed detail, and rich chocolate brown hue. Plus, it’s versatile enough to add DIY details on your own.
13. Wondershop Velvet Christmas Stocking with Snowflakes
For a nontraditional approach to Christmas colors, we love incorporating pink into our mantels. This Velvet Christmas Stocking with Snowflakes ($15, Target) features textured snowflake appliques with a punch needle feel that almost makes it look handmade.
14. Archie the Snowman Cozy Teddy Stocking
Another unique and splurge-worthy stocking from Pottery Barn, the Archie the Snowman Cozy Teddy Stocking ($29.50, Pottery Barn) is a total Christmas decor showstopper. The snowman-shaped Christmas stocking is crafted from a trendy teddy material and makes an excellent accent stocking hung next to more traditional knit stockings.
15. Wondershop Reindeer Character Christmas Stocking
A fun Christmas stocking idea for kids, the Reindeer Character Christmas Stocking ($15, Target) comes with plush antler details and a three-dimensional knit scarf. At 20 inches long, it has enough room for stocking stuffers, candy, and other holiday goodies.
16. The Holiday Aisle Stocking Set of 6
For those who like a chic black-and-white Christmas decor style, this set of six stockings from The Holiday Aisle ($44.99, Wayfair) is the way to go. The stockings are designed in a buffalo check material and alternative black and white cuffs. At $44.99 for the pack, they’re also an excellent value and come out to $7.50 per stocking.
17. White Polka Dot Felted Wool Christmas Stocking
The World Market White Polka Dot Felted Wool Christmas Stocking ($24.99, World Market) is handmade in Nepal by women. Despite its sleek design, it has a woodsy feel and pairs perfectly with either all-green or colorful decor. Plus, World Market members can get up to 10% off with in-store pickup.
18. Kunyida 18-Inch Knitted Christmas Stockings 6-Pack
We spotted more Christmas stockings in bulk, like the 6-pack of knitted stockings from Kunyida ($28.71, Amazon). These stockings come out to $4.78 a piece and come in a collection of ivory, green, and burgundy hues. If these colors aren’t your thing, there are 12 other color scheme options to choose from, including single and double colors.
19. Geometric Half Circle Christmas Stocking
We love the mid-century modern style feel of the Geometric Half Circle Christmas Stocking ($24.99, World Market). It comes in black and white or as a colorful mix of blue, green, and peach on white for a retro vibe. As with most items at World Market, members can get up to 10% off when they select in-store pickup.
20. Chunki Chilli Personalized Hand Knit Christmas Stocking
The Personalized Hand Knit Christmas Stocking ($63, Etsy) is the most expensive option on our list, but it’s worth the splurge — especially if you’re looking for a unique Christmas gift for babies or kids that will be loved for a lifetime. The handmade stockings are crafted from high-quality cotton yarn, have 11 different styles to choose from, feature a small pocket on the front for a letter from Santa, and come with the option to add a personalized vegan leather name tag.
