With central heat and air being in most houses now, people don’t typically need a fireplace. If you are one of the many people who don’t have a fireplace with a mantel, then you know how frustrating it can be trying to hang stockings in the “right” place.

Christmas stockings are supposed to be hung on the mantel with care and it’s hard to explain to your little ones why it isn’t there when you have just read them the holiday classic ” ‘Twas the Night before Christmas “.

Luckily, there are plenty of places you can choose to hang those stockings that will work just as good as having them on the mantel. They will look great and you can assure your kids that Santa Claus will still fill them with goodies on Christmas Eve.

If you have a stairway in your house, you can easily place Christmas stockings running up the stair rails and use a little garland to wrap the railings and hang your stockings — this will look amazing! If it’s not possible to do that, create a mantel out of your entertainment stand if you have one. Most people place their tree in their living room or family room, so that usually means your TV is nearby. Put it to work and let your kids hang their stockings from it.

You can always hang the Christmas stockings on the wall near the tree if you don’t have any other area. You can easily run a small strand of garland and “hang” them from it. If you don’t want to put nail holes in your wall, there are plenty of adhesive hangers that won’t damage your walls or any other surface.

There really are no proper rules on where to hang your Christmas stockings. Use your imagination and try to keep them near the tree so that Santa won’t have no problem locating them when he shows up with goodies to put inside them!
