Draw upon the history of colonial architecture with traditional Christmas stockings this holiday season—and if you need help getting in the spirit of things, take a look at the 10 small towns with the most holiday spirit. “For a more traditional option, opt for designs that reflect classic looks from decades past that never go out of style,” says Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy’s trend expert. “Look for traditional colorways like red and green with a personalized punch of initials or customized names.” A classic Christmas stocking, like this red reindeer one, will photograph well. Personalization is always an extra bonus and looks nice on ruffled burlap stockings like these.

Don’t let the holidays infringe on your home’s cool minimalist aesthetic. Just like your home, seek out textured fabrics in a neutral palette, says Isom Johnson. This hand felted wool Christmas tree stocking is roomy and is made with eco-friendly wool. Isom Johnson also suggests looking for geometric patterns to complement your home’s architecture, like this star-printed stocking.
