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 products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of Christmas decorations before — including artificial Christmas trees, Christmas lights, and Christmas–tree decorations — here, we’ve rounded up the best Christmas stockings, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated Christmas stocking

These stockings scored high marks for their “cozy,” knit look. One reviewer who calls them “perfect” doesn’t “like the standard, bulky red and white stocking.” Instead, she wanted “something chic and cozy,” especially considering her “color theme” for Christmas was “ivory and pink.” She couldn’t bear ruining that with more traditional-looking stockings, so she settled on these. “These stockings look just right! The color is a true ivory, no yellow at all. If you’re looking for a shabby chic, cozy stocking then these are perfect for you.” Another reviewer’s wife wanted Ugg-brand stockings, but he “couldn’t believe spending close to $60 for four STOCKINGS!” So he ordered these as a plan B, and it seems to have worked out, because he’s “just WOWED by the quality of these stockings!” Aside from looks, though, reviewers say these have enough room to actually put stuffers inside. One reviewer writes, “They are stretchy enough to shove lots of gifts in there, but not so stretchy that I’m worried about them losing their shape.”
