Elf On The Shelf Gifts 2022

As Elfie returns to join the crew, it can be fun for them to bring a little something for your children to mark the beginning of advent.

Perhaps your elf delivers the advent calendars or arrives with a message for the family (check out our free printable welcome back poem here).  But this can also be a lovely opportunity to add a little extra magic to a festive treat and set up an activity or tradition for the coming weeks.

Of course any advent treat will do the job perfectly.   But we’ve included a few of our favourite suggestions for elf on the shelf gifts in case you need a little helping hand.

Scroll down for all the details and links.  Happy Browsing!
