It’s time to face the cold, hard truth: It’s (almost) time for The Elf on the Shelf to creepily lurk around in our homes this holiday season, so he can report back to Santa if our kids have been naughty or nice. The holiday tradition sparks a lot of feelings with parents — some despise it (we’ve already got enough things to worry about right now) and some love the creativity behind it. But when it’s all said and done, you gotta admit if it makes the little ones happy, it’s totally worth the headache it can cause.
No matter what side of the elf debate you’re on, we’ve got the best news for you: We just discovered that there are tons of The Elf on the Shelf themed products you can find online — from the perfect Christmas Eve pajamas to an advent calendar — that are going to make your holiday shopping a breeze. There’s a treasure chest full of quirky accessories for Elfie that’ll make getting creative way less stressful — especially if you’re not an expert DIY-er.
We’re talking quirky elf-approved outfits, pets for Elfie, and The Elf on the Shelf books to stock your kid’s library with this holiday season. If these snow-cool accessories aren’t the ultimate game-changer for tired parents everywhere, we don’t know what is.
