Whether you have a fireplace or not, hanging Christmas stockings from the mantel is often a sign that the holiday season is starting. Just waiting to be filled with gifts, stockings make the perfect addition to your holiday decor and are often part of family tradition. While legend tells us that children hung their socks from the mantle as they waited for Saint Nicholas to fill them with treats, this has translated into today's stockings, which run the gamut from traditional to unique.

Are you looking for a new stocking to spice up your home this holiday? You can find everything from knit stockings complete with your name embroidered for a classic look to Christmas stockings with a pop culture twist. And for pet lovers, there are even special stockings for your furry friends that make sure they are included with the rest of the family.

Just in time for the holidays, check out some of our favorite Christmas stockings and get ready to buy those stocking stuffers!
