Does your shelf have an elf? Here’s some daily ideas

No shelf is complete without an elf the past few Christmas’s and these little tricksters get up to all sorts in the night! So if you shelf has an elf read on.. (and if it doesn’t you can buy one here)

Here are some ideas to help you survive December

We’ve arrived

You elf always needs to arrive in style so why not start his visit off with a bang! Personalised Balloon displays like this are available from Sugar Star Events in Droitwich

North Pole Breakfast

On arrival day you can also do a North Pole breakfast, its like a normal breakfast, but cooler (see what I did there? Cooler, Cold, North Pole? Well it amused me anyway) – Find out more about that from Lisa over at her blog here

I’m pooped

Not actual elf poop, obviously, chocolate drops will do!


Up, up and away

You can even buy pre made items for your elf including this balloon set from The Range

Ah yes.. the loo roll

One I do see a lot is the loo roll chaos. Wrap it round the tree, hang it from the lampshade or throw it round the room. The more mess you make the better

Christmas Eve is here

When it is finally time for the elves to disappear to the loft, I mean North Pole for another year, there are lots of ways for them to say goodbye. You can take this opportunity to leave your children a Christmas Eve Box like the ones from Holly and Ollie
