The Great Christmas Stocking Hunt

Now that Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas season has begun, I am officially on the hunt for a set of really nice, really high quality stockings for my family. You guys, it’s really daunting!

The musts: They must be durable, they must be big enough to hold a decent amount of stuffers (but not so big that you have to overbuy), they must be aesthetically pleasing, they must be (at least somewhat) traditional.

It’s a tall order!

After the jump, I’ve pulled together a round up of all the stockings I’ve looked at so far that just might fit the bill. Maybe you’re in the same boat as me? If so, maybe I’ve found your Christmas stocking soul mate for you?
