Essential Stocking Holder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 205.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Looks great and is very sturdy. I like that you can add or removed hooks as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stocking holder! This is a classy and sleek way to hang stockings. It's flexible, you can hang as many as you want and where you want them. I don't have to worry about my cats trying to knock this off the mantle or the full stockings pulling this off either. So glad I took the plunge and bought this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use these if you have extra stockings Allows me to hang more than five stockings with the stocking holder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally --- my stockings are secure! This has solved my problem of finding stocking holders that are strong enough to hold filled stockings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for holding up all of the families stockings First of all, I thought it was terribly expensive for what it is, so I wish I would have waited until post holiday to order it, but I really do like it so I am happy I purchased it. The bar is quite heavy so you can keep the stockings up even when they are filled “by Santa” on Christmas. I wish I would have taken a picture of it when I had the stockings up but already took everything down for the season. Would recommend but be smart and buy off season…like in January.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious!! We had 11 full stocking over the fireplace this year thanks to this beautiful brass bar which will stay on our mantle all year ling

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Stocking Holder This product is wonderful. I was able to hang 8 stockings on the mantel with none falling off the entire season! There was no damage to my mantel. We used to use cute hooks but they would fall and break. This is a lifesaver for a beautiful holiday season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stocking Holder for your mantel/iron or gold This stocking holder is perfect for holding multiple stockings. It is heavy enough to support the weight of stockings once they are filled. It also is low profile so that you can decorate the mantel with greens, berries, ornaments, ribbon, whatever materials you use. I purchased it in gold because I had decorative stocking holders to blend with it but needed more places for stockings as our family has grown. I think it would also be great in iron, depending upon what your decor is. I recommend this product if you need to hang several stockings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas stocking holder This is a very nice stocking holder. It is heavy and held our stockings securely with no chance of tipping over. The hooks slide in a narrow groove allowing you to space your stockings evenly across. I used two unused hooks to help support the garland over the mantle. Definitely recommend this item for purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Christmas Stocking Holder Just what I had been looking for... didn't want to make nail holes in my new mantles, but wanted to be able to fill my stockings and hang them up. This is a hearty and heavy stocking holder, that can hold stockings easily even when loaded... comes with 5 hooks and you can order extras too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I was a bit skeptical about this being able to handle several full stockings. But after receiving it, WOW, these are awesome!! Heavy weight, sturdy & looks so nice!! An awesome addition for Christmas stockings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Exactly what I needed! Love it so much. I had to go back and order a second one for all of my stockings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this simple, sturdy design! We had tried a couple different options for our mantle that just didn’t work out. One actually fell off and scratched the wood. I’ve been known to overstuff the stockings and so far this one is holding up! It’s sleek and doesn’t interfere with the other decor. Appears very sturdy. Would purchase again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The holder comes with hooks already. Easy to use but I didn't need to buy. I thought I needed to buy these but the holder comes with hooks already.
Date published: 2022-12-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice as a mantel. We use it as a mantle for stockings. My husband added a slender piece of painted wood over our tile behind the gas stove and affixed the holder. It works well. I didn't know it came with the hooks and ordered hooks. Now I have too many. Returning would have cost a lot so I just kept them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally something that holds my filled stockings! love love love it. It will hold my stocking empty or full and never falls off. hooks are adjustable so you can move them and space them however you want. just ordered more hooks to add more stockings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stocking holder! This stocking holder is worth the money. I love it being one piece. I only wish the hooks were just a little bit bigger. Still worth getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and most versatile stocking holder I love this stocking holder. I can add more stockings when relatives come. I can also decorate the mantle how I want to. Also, we can fill the stockings and leave them hung on the hooks. This is very sturdy. It is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect stocking holder for rustic beam mantle Perfect stocking holder for large wooden beam mantle with oddly shaped edges. Typical stocking holders didn’t work. This was the perfect solution. Heavy duty, beautiful, versatile, easy to use. I even ordered a second one because our family is growing and they fit exactly right end to end on our mantle for an extend length with extra hooks to add more stockings. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Stocking Holder This stocking holder is great. Love the fact that you can adjust the amount of stockings with the hooks. I also pushed them to the side when having a fire in the fireplace, so easy. The holder itself is durable and heavy and easily holds the filled stockings. No more bulking individual stocking holders!
Date published: 2022-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Held our 13 filled stockings without worry! LOVE THIS! The Essential Stocking Holder held our 13 stockings, even after they were filled, with beauty and stability. No worry about slipping or tipping. Very highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stocking Holder Item is heavy in weight but perfect for those shelves or mantels in which a view shouldn’t be blocked . Example: wall mount TV above mantle . It comes with 5 movable hooks , but, room for additional. Christmas stockings filled with heavy items and holder did not budge or move . A great addition to my neutral decor .
Date published: 2021-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s perfect! I’m thrilled with this product. It’s sleek and attractive and worked perfectly. It held six filled stockings with no trouble. I was originally looking at buying individual iron hooks for each stocking, but that gets really pricey. Though this piece was expensive, I love that I can add more hooks as the family grows. I would definitely recommend this product.
Date published: 2021-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stocking holder This stocking holder is perfect! We have tile surrounding our hearth and fireplace and we also have small children. We didn’t want to buy the individual stocking holders because our small children could pull the stockings off causing the heavy object to crash to the floor, or worse, injure them. This was the perfect alternative!
