The start of December means Christmas is around the corner. Some are just getting started setting up for the season, while others have had their holiday decor up since before Thanksgiving. Either way, hanging stockings on the mantel or the stairwell signals the beginning of the Christmas season and brings lots of cheer. A stocking for each member of the family to hold the best stocking stuffers is important, and one that’ll become a holiday heirloom is even better. Stores like Amazon, Pottery Barn, and Target have great stocking selections that’ll last—not only in quality but in style.
