Looking for an Elf on the Shelf gift for your little ones? We share 16 fun ideas for a special hello gift your elf can deliver as they arrive.
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!
