Beach Christmas Stockings With Name Templates

by dustytoes

Personalize Christmas stockings with a tropical, beach theme to hang in your home.

I create Christmas stocking designs to sell on the print-on-demand Zazzle site. My specialty is tropical designs for the holiday season. Each stocking has a place for a name and contains some sort of beach scene or elements of a tropical location.

Themed Christmas decor is very popular and probably most popular for those living in a tropical location. You don't need to live on the beach to love the beach theme. These stockings work in any climate and may even warm you up in the midst of winter.

About The Christmas Stockings on This Page

Zazzle's Christmas stockings are offered in a variety of styles.  Some have fabric selections.

Double-sided stockings: Have image and name on both sides so they can hang facing right or left.  This is important if you want a new stocking to face the same way as older stockings.  If you don't care which way they face, save money and choose the single sided style with red on the back.

One side printing is offered on the similar stocking.  The reverse is solid red.  If no image is shown on the back of the stocking in the image preview, only "red backing" can be chosen.  The image on the front will not be placed on the back!

These stockings have three fabric choices which are: brushed poly, faux linen, and fleece.  Choose small (9 x16 inches) or large size (12 x 20 inches).

Premium Stocking: The white stocking with a wide red top.  This style can be customized on one side.

Photo Template Stockings

A few of my custom stockings have photo templates.  Upload a photo of the kids or pets and create a uniquely personalized keepsake.

Ideas for use:

Give photo stockings as gifts to grandparents and fill with homemade gifts from the child.

Place a baby photo of the child in the template and use year after year.

Commemorate a special occasion and each year the family can reminisce when the stocking is pulled out again to hang.

Use for family pets.  Animal pictures don't change too much over the years, so use the stocking each year for Santa to leave chew toys or kitty nibbles.

Beach Scene Christmas Stockings

Everyone loves a reminder of the tropics and these stockings contain images of ocean water and beach sand.

Many people are surrounded by snow and cold weather at holiday time.  Others enjoy Christmas in a warm climate.  Christmas stockings with beach scenes work for just about anyone.

Blue ocean water and smooth beach sand will compliment a beach themed holiday decor.

Festive Pineapple Christmas Design

New for the 2018 season, I decided to decorate a pineapple image with holiday trappings.  The blue ornament and starfish were already in my design folders, and so was the pineapple.  All I needed to do was put them all together to create a simple, festive design with a tropical feel.

Flamingo Christmas Designs

The flamingo has long been a symbol of the fun tropical lifestyle.  Plastic birds can still be found adorning front yards believe it or not.  

Flamingos get their pink colored feathers from eating shrimp and other crustaceans.  They live in tropical and sub-tropical regions, like Africa, South America and the Caribbean.  In Florida I have seen "pink birds" flying which turned out to be Roseate Spoonbills and not flamingos!

The flamingo is the iconic symbol of wading in water along a sandy beach.  Maybe that is why so many people love the image on home decor year round.

Sea Turtle Christmas Stockings

Everyone loves sea turtles.  Where I live in Florida, the beaches have rules about keeping lights off in homes and businesses when the turtles are hatching.  If the baby turtles see lights inland they may get confused and head toward land instead of the sea where they should go.

Sea turtle nests are usually blocked off with tape so they won't be disturbed.  

When we are boating it is not unusual to see a colorful, huge turtle surface for a moment and then dive back down into the water.

The sea turtle image used in my design was taken from a photograph which I then turned into a graphic design.

This design is perfect for boys, Dads, and sons.

The Sport of Paddleboarding

Paddle-boarding is big everywhere, but in tropical regions, like Florida, water sports can be enjoyed year round.  

This inspired me to make a Christmas stocking with an illustration of a girl on a paddleboard taking her dog for a ride.  Alongside the board is a sea turtle swimming in the waves.  Yes, this is the same sea turtle image I used for the stockings above.

A Town Called Christmas ... in Florida!

A place where no snow ever falls.

Did you know there is a town in Florida named "Christmas"?  Well there is and it's a small town in a desolate location, but it gets busy (with mail that is) around holiday time.

I live in Florida but have never been to Christmas.  There really is nothing there to see of importance and gets it's popularity from name only.  At least that is my opinion.

Traditional red stockings with white trim at the top, but with our names spelled out in glitter-glue.

I don't have numbers on which type of fabric sells best, but I think most people choose the cheaper "brushed poly". The paddleboard design is brand new so no sales yet, but hopefully soon. The buying season is just beginning. Thank you!

dustytoes, Thank you for the practical information and the product lines. Which of the three fabrics attracts the most orders? How is the paddleboard design doing? It looks particularly inviting.

Stockings are worth making at Zazzle because I do sell them.

Zazzle is a fun place to create such things, and can still earn something.
