Why We Did Christmas Stockings This Year…

Ever since I was little I wanted to have a Christmas stocking at Christmas. I remember having a Christmas stocking at least once growing up, but ever since then I’ve really wanted to start the tradition of having a Christmas stocking again. 2017 was the year that we brought back this popular tradition back.

Mum and I decided that we would do Christmas stockings for our gifts to one another, and it made the already fun part of picking out gifts even more enjoyable. We gave each other a basic budget, a few ideas on what we’d like and left the rest up to each other.

Our Christmas stockings are from Frontgate and we went with different designs versus the common option of having all stockings the same or similar. (I just love cable knit, and the metallic shimmer of the yarn was just gorgeous. I also love mum’s ‘sparkling’ decor and grey faux fur.)

One of the gifts we left open ended since we were planning out mini-break to Asheville’s Grove Park Inn just in case we found another perfect gift for our stockings.

Merry Christmas everyone!
