"Christmas Stocking"

This Christmas stocking will be appreciated by every member of the family.

The time honored family tradition of hanging a red stocking up the night before, and waking on Christmas morning to discover the surprises left inside, has provided excitement for generations!

You may personalize them with each individual’s initial if you wish, or decorate with festive motifs like my star, tree, or Xmas gift motif.
