Here at Kidadl, we love Christmas and the joy it brings.

With presents, good food, lots of happiness and spending time with friends and family, it is simply the most wonderful time of the year. Whilst planning your Christmas Day, there are lots of things to consider including stockings, what to put in them, when to open them and who should have them.

The history of the stocking started with the patron saint of children, called St Nicholas. He was born back in 270 AD. The tradition of stockings started with kids leaving a stocking out overnight in the hope that they would be visited by St Nicholas. They started just using their own socks and developed over time to use stockings, which have only got bigger and more elaborate. Over the years stockings have become a hugely popular tradition and many people around the globe use them either to fill with presents for kids or as Christmas decorations around the house.

Stockings can be opened at different times depending on your preferences. Many parents opt to let children open them early in the morning on Christmas day, whilst others give them to their children on Christmas Eve to give their kids something to do before the main event the next day. The choice is completely personal and there isn't  a right or wrong time to do it.

If you're struggling to decide where to buy the best stocking your kids, we have rounded up 12 of our favourites, to help you prepare for Christmas. Whether you have a baby, toddler, young kids or even teens this list will help you find the perfect Xmas stocking for your family.
