Christmas stocking holders come in a wide variety of designs, themes and materials and are a spectacular personalized stocking fireplace ornament. What is important to consider when choosing the stocking holders is that they have to be able to hold a full stocking weight. Stocking holders can be used as mantel or fireplace decorations but you have to check if the ones that you like have a slip resistant foam pad on the bottom.
The weight of the stocking holder is another important issue. If you chose heavy holders, children may pull the stockings and heavy holders could fall and hurt them.
