Seeing Mrs. Crumbs Christmas Stocking post made me think. Do you guys have matching family Christmas Stockings?
I grew up with immigrant parents and there were always just random cheap stockings on the fireplace, and my parents definitely didn't "stuff" them with gifts for us or anything.
When I bought ours for myself, DH, and furbaby, I just picked ones that went with each of our personalities (no embroidered names or anything).

They have the same theme. All my Christmas decor is kind of a vintage/woodland/rustic theme, so everything kind of "goes" together.

All of ours match, even the dog! I got them at HomeGoods though so when LO comes we'll probably have to get new ones. My parents always had the ones with our names embroidered so they all matched.

I want to get matching embroidered ones for next year, when LO is here. This year we'll still just use whatever mismatched ones we have around.

I will probably make some for us out of coordinating fabric. So they will match but not be the same. I'll make sure to buy plenty of fabric so that I can make more as LOs arrive!

Ours are all handmade. They aren't matchy, matchy but they coordinate.

Ours were always VERY random. I liked that though:) I think I will get more matchy ones for our little family!

Our stockings don't match. We picked our own out and they are us.

Nope! Our first christmas together, we made each other's stocking. We took a blank stocking and decorated to our liking. Neither of us saw it until Christmas day. Then we had a competition to see which one our friends liked better between the two. ha!
They both hang on our fireplace and I put up additional generic "merry christmas" stockings to fill the void.

I was thinking about buying matching stocking this year... Right now we just have cheap ones for the kids/dogs and DH's childhood stocking.

Yes, but I am very anal about things matching. We also have a matching tree skirt! But I do think different ones are cute, too!

Interesting! I guess I've never even really been to someone's house with all matching stockings! It might be fun to get them done next year when LO is here or when we are done having LOs.
