In only a matter of months, doorways will be adorned with mistletoe, fridges will be stocked with eggnog and fireplaces will be decorated with stockings. Do you think it’s too early to be talking about Christmas traditions? Embroider Buddy® doesn’t either!
The tradition of Christmas stockings began with the tale of Saint Nicholas (aka St.Nick), a poor widower and his three daughters. As the story goes, St. Nick knew that the local broken-hearted man would be too proud to accept his money. So, he dropped gold coins down the man’s chimney on Christmas day where they supposedly fell into the girl’s stockings.
Most of us don’t receive gold in our stockings nowadays, but we do like to dress them up, make them our own and receive small gifts. Remember, as the saying goes, good things come in small packages.
Can you think of a better way to prepare for the most magical time of the year than to personalize stockings for customers, friends and family? Neither can we!
Our traditional stocking is 19” in length and is made of a faux silk material making custom embroidery easy. Both the cuff and the stocking body are well suited for intricate designs and are offered in seven different colours.
The Easy As 1-2-3! Christmas Stocking is marvellously easy to decorate and sells like hot cakes every holiday season.
The plush stocking cuff has a hook and loop fastener that lets it lay flat. Better yet, the stocking can be almost completely unzipped making it easy to embroider your favourite stocking essentially anywhere!
The low pile fabric is easy to clean and keeps your stocking looking like new for years to come.

Looking for a more elegant way to dress up your fireplace this year? Try our Chic Stocking!
The faux-silk is sleek and cuff less making it the ideal stocking for custom embroidery. The chic stocking is made from 100% polyester making personalization easy on either a sewing machine or by hand.
Here are some of our favourite ways to decorate both our traditional and plush stockings.
Monograms are forever a classic and chic way to personalize virtually anything.
The bodies of Embroider Buddy® stockings are the perfect place for your monogram. Placing the monogram on the body allows for a larger design and gives it an edge against the traditional cuff personalization.
Baby’s First Stocking
Patchwork on stockings makes a baby’s first stocking playful and unique. We suggest you add their initials, birthdate, weight and a couple of gender-specific designs. A stocking is the perfect baby gift no matter what time of year they are born!
A ‘Favourites’ Theme
Decorate your Embroider Buddy®stocking with your friends or families favourite things. We suggest stocking themes of your dad’s favourite hobby; fishing, a musically themed piece for the local talented, or a character themed stocking for your movie buff friend.
Getting creative and gifting a stocking is the gift that keeps on giving year after year. The best part is, you don’t have to fill it!
