Garnet Hill Mini-Felt Stockings Advent Calendar’s Rankings
Love the advent idea yet lack wall space for a hanging calendar? Check out Garnet Hill’s stocking garland. The stockings are smaller than average (limiting the amount of stuff you can actually fit in), but it also serves as festive decoration without the daily treats. So even when the kids are grown and too old for daily traditions, you can still hang these stockings by the chimney (with care).
