Make the season especially bright with customizable holiday stockings from Meyamo. Each kit contains an oversize canvas sock and more than 70 holiday-inspired iron-on letters and designs, so the end product is uniquely your child’s own.
In the spirit of giving, Meyamo will donate $1 from every kit sold to the local nonprofit Holiday Stockings for Homeless Children.
That makes eyes all aglow.
