For those who don't have a fireplace...

and celebrate Christmas, where do you put the Christmas stockings?

Our new house doesn't have one, and I'm trying to decide what to do with them. I thought about just putting them under the tree, displaying them with Santa gifts on a chair, or maybe hanging them from one of the bookcases. Just curious what others do when they don't have a fireplace or mantle to hang them from, so maybe I can get some other ideas. Thanks!

  • We have a fireplace, but when we didn't, we hung the stockings around the door frame. It worked really well.

  • We hung ours on the wall near the tree, made it kind of pretty. Hubby just used a small finishing nail.

  • we've always had fireplaces, but even growing up, my mom used to put ours in our bedroom, so that it was the first thing we saw when we woke up...and thats what i do with my daughter too!! i love waking up to hearing her going thru her stocking with so much excitement! :)

  • We have a fireplace and we hang them from the bookshelf anyway. It just works better for us that way.

  • up the banaster going up the staris if you have one
    bookshelf good idea
    one on each chair at table , espeially if kids usully sit on one particular seat
    a hook like thing, run them down a door (unless you have huge stocking and lots of kids
    maybe hide them like the easter bunny does
    if sound sleepers, put on bed posts, they can open when they wake-may give mom and dad a few extra minutes of sleep too

  • Our previous home did not have a fireplace in it. I went to a x-mas store that sell ornaments and found the "Santa Key". You hang it on your door and that is what Santa uses to get in!
