Personal Creations Holiday Decor

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide – Day 20

If you haven’t noticed, Christmas is a big deal here at Rave Central. Whether it’s decorating the tree, baking Christmas cookies, or holiday crafts, if it has to do with Christmas, we love it. This means that we’re always on the lookout for Christmas decorations to add to our collection and make the holidays extra merry and bright.

P0080950bIn my never-ending search for holiday décor, I ran across Personal Creations a few months ago and was in holiday heaven. Whether you are shopping for personalized Christmas ornaments, stockings, or holiday gifts, Personal Creations really does have it all. Immediately, I found something I wanted, something I needed, and something I would love to wrap up for someone special.

Every December when I was growing up our fireplace was the center of our decorating. I vividly remember our long line of 7 stocking holders down the mantle, each holding our stockings and I knew that’s what I wanted to eventually do for my kids as well. But, since our fireplace does not have a mantle, I was debating what I wanted to with our new handmade personalized Christmas stockings so we could still display them in a festive and fun way.

P0052044bThank goodness Personal Creations had the perfect solution that was quickly added to my list of holiday must-haves.  The answer for my dilemma was simple but actually quite ingenious and still very festive-looking. The Metal Stocking Holder with 3 holders from Personal Creations is a stand-alone stocking holder that allows you to display your stockings beautifully, even without a mantle.

When the Metal Stocking Holder arrived, I took one look in the box at the beautiful, yet heavy-duty, construction and was so excited that I just had to put it together immediately. Luckily, putting it together was quick and easy, just a matter of screwing down four inch tubes to the base and then slipping the personalized picture frame stocking holders in and it was ready for display. Once it was together, I was simply in love. At 35” wide and 40” high and with beautiful design throughout, it is a nice and impressive once put together and has made our mantle-less house a positive instead of a negative.

Some really cool things about the screw in design that I hadn’t realized while looking at the website: the base is entirely flat and able to be stored easily, there is a little bit of give to the design and the holders themselves aren’t prone to bending if bumped into accidentally or if the stockings are overfilled, as well as the design makes it easy to place the picture frame holders in correctly since they aren’t directly screwed into the base itself. Some of the reviews on the Personalized Creations site made it seem as if the holders were “wobbly” and I was a bit worried about quality, but one look at how it is constructed and I was incredibly relieved. While the removable frame holders are able to move in the base slightly for function’s sake and to prevent injury to the core if bumped, the design is really quite brilliant and I would describe it as anything but “wobbly”.

Another bonus of the design that I hadn’t realized was that the Metal Stocking Holder is expandable. The base itself comes with 3 holders, but then you can just buy more holders as you need them. To get the look pictured here, we got 2 more frame holders and added them to the base. Now that we’ve added our stockings and displayed it in front of the tree we’ve gotten so many compliments on the piece both from visitors as well as online when I posted a picture of it to my social media page, and the general consensus is that it is a beautiful piece that really makes our space come together. If you think it’s cute now, just think of how gorgeous it will look when we get our Christmas pictures back and I am able to fill the frames on the stocking holders to personalize them!

P0079929bEven though I would eventually like to move the Metal Stocking Holder to the fireplace at some point to really make my dream of stockings hanging by the fire a reality, this spot in front of the tree was chosen in part as a third line of defense in preventing a 13 month old from having access to the tree, the ornaments, and everything below… and it has worked beautifully. To me, it was a better option that not being able to decorate at all with a curious toddler, and makes the fact that half of our tree is a little bare feel more put together.

PCR11_0000011W1750_0142622_PROMO1_SQFrom how much we absolutely love the Metal Stocking Holder, I know I will be returning to Personal Creations again and again as we finish collecting all the holiday decorations I would eventually like for our home. For instance, the buy one get one free stocking and ornament set for $19.99 that I just saw advertised on TV from Personal Creations. I went to the website and clicked on the “Hear about us on TV?” star and then went to the special link to see the deal. Based on what I have heard about their gorgeous stockings and ornaments, I wasn’t really surprised that I saw 471 positive reviews listed!

  1. one item I would buy is the Boy Scout ornament to commemorate my son achieving Eagle Scout rank this year. Maybe also get him the Photo Tile box with his picture on it for a keepsake. They have so many great keepsake personal gifts.

  2. I really need new and nice Christmas stocking for our family. I love the Winter Wonderland ones. I need 5, so that $50 gift card would really help me out. lol
