Mine is a knitted one I had from being a child. DH's is also a knitted one with his name on it. From what I can remember (How can I not remember?!?) the boys are both fabric ones with embroidery on. My mum got them both from a charity shop for their 1st Christmas
I really really wish we all had cute matching knitted ones with our initial on or something but I'd imagine we'll just stick to what we've got
I'm thinking I'm gonna go buy some cheapo stockings that match for us this year (Dollar Tree??? lol) and see about getting some that I like after Christmas on clearance. I'm actually not sentimental about my childhood stocking at all. Maybe that's what I don't like. I'm not excited about seeing it at all like I am other Christmas decorations.
We currently have matching stockings. They are just the red and white fuzzy ones that I got for .50 on clearance after one Christmas and I wrote our names on them with glitter glue. I have about 20 of them as I bought them to use as gift bags for future Christmases, so we can have matching stockings no matter how many kids we add on, lol!
Right now, ours match. They are red and white with a black "Santa Belt" across them. I got our names monogrammed on them before the Christmas that we had Evan. I have a friend that has stockings with the same colors, but none match. I really liked how they looked when hung up. We don't have any early childhood stockings, so no big deal to switch things around.
