Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. Here, because the holidays are coming, we’ve chosen the best Christmas stockings on Amazon — we’ve also picked out our favorite Christmas tree toppers, artificial Christmas trees, Christmas lights, and wrapping papers — according to the people. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best plush Christmas stocking

19” Long 3D Happy Plush Snowman Christmas Stockings

4.7 stars, 244 reviews

“These are so adorable and perfect for what I wanted!! I was concerned after reading some of the other reviews that these were going to be flimsy and cheap. The back side is thin, but not to the point that I’m worried about it ripping or breaking, and the front is awesome — very thick, the characteristics (such as the snowman’s carrot nose) don’t sag or look smooshed (considering they were in a bag and boxed up). They hang perfectly, no twisting or gaping. They are even bigger than I expected. I’m SO happy with these!!!”

Best personalized Christmas stocking

Personalized Christmas Stockings Velvet Red Body / White Cuff Ribbon

4.6 stars, 123 reviews

“A new tradition for our home! I was a little nervous about ordering these for my family, but they are PERFECT! The stockings came very quickly and arrived exactly as I ordered them. Just follow the directions of the seller for the personalization you want on each one, and it’s hassle-free. I wish I had more family members so I could order more, but these are sure to last us for years.”

Best DIY felt Christmas-stocking kit

Bucilla 18-Inch Christmas Stocking Felt Applique Kit, 85431 Sugar Plum Fairy

4.4 stars, 244 reviews

“This was the first stocking kit I ever made. My grandmother made these for us, and they were always such a special treat to get out of storage and hang each year. This particular design turned out to be absolutely beautiful. However, I did improvise on some things, as I was new to embroidery. I would not recommend it was an easy stocking — unless you don’t get frustrated easily and are up for a challenge. It was also very time-consuming (I have found most are, having done more now!), so start early!! Super beautiful, and I’m happy I chose this one. Happy stitching!!”

Best linen and felt Christmas stocking with faux-fur cuff

ITOMTE Swedish Elegant Christmas Stockings With Greeting Card

4.8 stars, 709 reviews

“Simply put: Super cute, quality construction and materials. What more could you ask for? More … I suppose?”

Best pair of knit Christmas stockings

Kurt Adler Red and Cream Knit Stockings 2 Assorted

4 stars, 113 reviews

“Not a whole lot in the description, so I was worried when I placed the order, but decided to just go for it! These are PERFECT … Yarn seems to be a wool blend. Great quality tight knit. More of an off-white than white, but blends perfectly with the red. Seem durable and perfect for our family for years to come! CAN’T WAIT TO HANG THEM UP!”

Best set of three knit Christmas stockings

Kurt Adler Heavy Knit Stocking

4.5 stars, 167 reviews

“I needed stockings for my stepkids (two boys and a girl) and didn’t want to spend too much money, either. These worked out great. The quality is better than I expected, too! They are a nice heavy knit and held quite a lot of stocking stuffers. They looked lovely on my mantel. They didn’t seem too misshapen once they were looted on Christmas morning, either.”

Best set of three Christmas stockings with appliqué decorations

Classic Christmas Stockings 18” Cute Santa’s Toys Stockings (Burlap Snowflakes)

4.4 stars, 338 reviews

“I was looking for a set of three stockings for my girls that would not break the bank, but would look good and hold up. I was very happy to come across these stockings. I love the look of them, and they are even better in person. I was worried about the quality, but my fears were not needed. These stockings are made very well and the quality is great! I can tell these will last for many years, even though I have a tendency to overstuff stockings, lol. I really do not have one bad thing to say about them. The lining is a very nice touch, and I love the burlap look.”

Best set of four knit Christmas stockings

18” Unique Ivory White Knit Christmas Stockings — 4-Pack

4.7 stars, 216 reviews

“I love these stockings! They have a classic, cozy look to them — exactly what I was looking for. I do recommend the larger size; I wouldn’t want to go any smaller than the 18-inch, although they do have some stretch to them. These look perfect on the mantel, and I even went back and bought some extra for my hypothetical additional future children. I anticipate that these stockings will serve our family well for many years.”

Best Christmas stocking for tactical enthusiasts

RUCKUP RUXMTSB Tactical Christmas Stocking, Full, Black

4.8 stars, 226 reviews

“I have a lot of military in my family, and tactical kitsch is well-liked. This is exactly what it says it is, a tactical Christmas stocking … It has pockets on the front for holding small items that are perfectly sized for gift cards or wallet accessories; the main pouch unzips for easy access, too. It’s made of matte-black no-rip nylon and is well-constructed; I was pleasantly surprised since a lot of gag gift items like this tend to look good for a few weeks and then quietly fall apart, engineered only for the gag-gift laugh … Thanks for helping out-tactical my dad for Christmas.”
