46p in Tesco. They are plain red felt with white felt on top. I have suggested to the children that they can sew their own names and decorate nicely themselves to hang up on the fireplace for Father Christmas. The 46p size are enough to put a small orange, tube of sweets, a few small stocking toys, etc. in.

I just ordered three personalised ones off eBay. Think they were about £7 each. Just searched for Christmas stockings and loads came up (sorry don't know how to link!)

John Lewis have some nice ones here at different prices.

GLTC have some nice ones, I think they have a MN discount code.

99p stores have velvet applique ones with father christmas or santa on. Big enough to put stocking fillers in, but bigger presents just spill out onto the floor beside them.

The emerald ones here link can be personalised with a name in gold thread and are very smart.

Look in TKMaxx. They have some really expensive looking ones for around 7.99, thick fabric and appliqued designs.

We have pretty stocking to hang up, big enough to get books or DVDs in along with all the sweets and the compulsory toothbrush and paste. Anything bigger goes by the side.
Garden Centres are often quite good places to look for nice decorative things too. I'm sure DDs stocking came from our local one when she was small. I still have the stocking I used as a child. It's definitely the smallest in our family. (mine doesn't get filled anymore it's just for decoration.)

big garden centres are packed with stuff like that at the moment... I love going round... but places like BHS also sell some lovely stockings with appliqué...

you could try etsy?

We got ours from Next many moons ago. They are just about wide enough to fit a DVD in.
