No Elf on the Shelf? Have An Elf for Everyone

Do you have an Elf in your home? Even without an Elf on the shelf, we still enjoy having a couple of elves around. See what elf things we love.

Do you have an elf at your house? Lucky for me, I've got two!

Elves at my House

While we haven't joined in on the crazy Elf on the Shelf tradition, my family loves to discuss elf life and all its particulars.

Do elves sleep with their hats on? Do elves really need to see the dentist? How many elves really live at the North Pole? Are Christmas elves related to the house elves of Harry Potter fame? Do elves really just eat candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup? My son even asked Santa if he could have an elf-made back scratcher in his stocking.

What are the elves at your house discussing?

Here are some of our favorite elf items... and if you must, some Elf on the Shelf ideas to keep you going through the 12 days until Christmas!
