Personalized Christmas stockings are very popular, and for good reason. They make it easier for people with a large quantity of stockings to stuff to keep track of which stocking goes to which recipient, which makes the process of filling them go much faster. Personalized stockings also can be handed out to the right people very quickly at a large party.
For people who adopt needy families, ordering a set of personalized stockings for this year's family is a wonderful touch. Those stockings show that you didn't just run out and buy some items that happened to be on sale at the last minute. You actually thought about your needy family far enough ahead of time to order personalized stockings and then fill each stocking with special items for each member of the family. The stockings are also a smart way to be sure each person gets the items you selected for him or her.
If you are throwing a kids' party during the holidays, why not substitute personalized stockings for swag bags? If you are concerned that filling up the stockings is going to be much too expensive, stuff them almost completely with crumpled paper and stick a standard treat bag of treats in the remaining space.
