Calling all Lovers of Whimsical Christmas Stockings

Red and green with a touch of white and gold are the traditional Christmas stocking colours. You can keep with tradition, here, but still come up with something in a whimsical vein, or you can step completely "off the bus" and do something different.

William Morris designs are a case in point. Green and gold, yet in a style that few Christmas stocking can match. Fabric choices can also make a difference. Velvet, sequins, and satin combine for an opulent Elf Boot stocking that will have you feeling like you're part of Santa's workshop.

At the other end of the stocking journey... our Luxury Christmas stocking reminds me more of a traditional sweet shop with its striped awning and bright, shouty colours. Definitely a stocking that Santa won't overlook when he stops in.

Elf boots with their curled toes and contrasting cuffs always have a touch of whimsy about them, whether they're stunningly quilted and embroidered and sporting a - very seasonal - poinsettia cuff, constructed from gleaming satin and gold, or showing a peacock's vibrant colours as the three in this selection.

They're also always true showstoppers.
