Along with trimming the tree, hanging stockings on the mantle is one of our favorite Christmastime customs.  Folklore tells us that the tradition goes way back to when Saint Nicolas learned about a poor man who couldn’t afford to pay a dowry for his three daughters.  Saint Nic decided to help the man, and took three bags of gold down the chimney of the family’s home. Once inside, he found the girls’ stockings hanging to dry on the mantel of the fireplace, so he added the gold bags to the stockings.  As the story spread, children began hanging their own stockings or putting out shoes every Christmas.  Usually they used their own socks, but later, specially decorated stockings were created in hopes of a bounty from Santa.

The anticipation of Christmas morning makes us all kids again!   No matter the age, we all get excited seeing a our name on a beautiful stocking filled with goodies.  Whether you’re starting new traditions, celebrating family memories, or looking for the perfect custom gift, make the day special with our exclusive personalized stockings that are sure to become family heirlooms.
