We’re ready for Christmas time over here at Adelé Boutique!! We have so many great, festive home and personal accessories in our Holiday Shop, but today we want to show off a Christmas tradition we are delighted to carry in the shop! Bauble Stockings!
Have you heard of Bauble Stockings? The tradition began with Bauble Stocking’s owner, Kate. Her mom received the last gift of Christmas from her husband and kids and it symbolized a “thank you” for the work she did through the holiday season. You can read more about the tradition here.
This handmade, heirloom-quality ornament will be a special keepsake every Christmas. Bauble Stocking ornaments are 100% hand-stitched in Haiti with cotton threads and oh-so-soft velvet backing. From start to finish, the attention to precise detail makes this a very special gift. Stockings come with a custom linen keepsake bag & information card.
So many special ways to use these sweet stockings: from packaging a gift card for a well-deserving recipient, a silverware holder at your Christmas Table Setting, or as the grand finale of Christmas where the final gift is either in the stocking or contains a clue as to where it can be found. A fun and meaningful tradition to look forward to each year!
Giving Back: Each stocking is 100% hand-stitched and finished. In 2018, production was moved to a community of single moms in Haiti. This organization, Good Threads Needlepoint, has since become a registered BCorp. The women are paid the equivalent of school teachers and nurses. They originally began stitching needlepoint belts to provide stability in their homes so their children could attend school. Since most jobs available were manual labor, these women were unable to find work so their boys kept having to drop out to make money for the family. Since beginning in 2013, not one child has had to drop out, and the community has grown to over 100 women stitchers. The community has built a school for over 120 children, many of whom will be the first person in their family to be able to complete high school. It is an honor to be able to provide good jobs in a country where jobs are hard to come by.
We love the tradition behind Bauble Stockings, and we love the idea of one big, special gift each Christmas. Ultimately, experiences and traditions are the most memorable part of life.
