Are Christmas stockings a tradition in your household? Some people feel that since they don’t have a fireplace, they can’t participate in the fun. We’re here to say don’t let that stop you! Father Christmas will still deliver goodies if the stockings are hanging from hooks on the wall, on a bookshelf, staircase, or even just sitting on the ground next to the tree. To help get you ready this year, we have a few fun ways to personalise and fill your stockings with small yet sincere gifts.
Pick your stocking
First, you’ll need to make sure you have stockings for the whole household — furry family members included! Some really crafty people sew their own stockings but if you don’t have time, it’s quite all right to purchase a ready-to-hang stocking. If you already have stockings in your house but feel they’re looking a little plain, you can also add festive flair to the stocking by using a photo ornament as a unique name tag. Make a tradition out of it by creating a new one each year for the family members. You’ll be amazed at how fast they grow with each passing year.
Sweet + sentimental gift ideas
We have lots of small photo gifts that would be perfect to put in your loved ones’ stockings this year. If there’s a new baby in the household, why not customise our acrylic keyring with a picture of the new bundle of joy? Perfect for celebrating baby’s first Christmas! And of course, it wouldn’t be 2020 without a festive face covering!
Is someone in your house getting a new phone for Christmas? Make sure they have a phone case to protect their precious present! We have a wide range of phone cases for iPhone and Samsung models.
It’s traditional to put oranges, nuts and other sweet treats in their stockings to enjoy on Christmas morning. If you’re adding in hot chocolate mix, don’t forget to put a mug in the stocking! Our 11 oz. mug would be just the right size.
Do you have a plant lover in the family? They’ll adore our personalised plant pot that will sit perfectly on the kitchen windowsill. Add in a few seed packets of their favourite flowers or herbs for a special touch.
If there’s a budding chef in the household, they would love our new tea towels! Simply roll up your gift, tie a ribbon around it, and slide into the stocking.
We have lots of fun gifts you can personalise for the kids too! They’ll love seeing their faces on photo coasters, photo magnets, and even a deck of personalised playing cards. Did you know that our new mini square magnets are also just the right size for a stocking.
One thing that’s been on everyone shopping list this year? Face masks. Make sure the whole family is protected with something comfortable and custom. You can upload your own photos or choose one of our cool ready-to-wear yuletide designs. Kids and Adult options available.
Need a stocking filler idea that sure to be a guaranteed hit for everyone? Photo prints! We have a wide range of sizes and styles, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your stocking. We suggest the photo booth prints, retro prints, or our new mini square prints.
