For years, the humble Christmas stocking has long been synonymous with the 25th of December. After all, you know how the old poem goes...
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
Sure, Christmas sacks can be more convenient (and yes, roomy!) for safely hiding away your little ones' gifts ready for Christmas morning, but there's just something lovely about hanging a Christmas stocking and filling it with presents, ready to be devoured.
If you agree and are on the hunt for a large Christmas stocking, fear not! We've pulled together our favourites including traditional options, personalised versions and even some luxury choices if you're after something really special.
