The IMAGE Lust List: Today We’re Loving The Elf On The Shelf


by IMAGE
03rd Dec 2015

This Christmas, we at IMAGE.ie will be shining a spotlight on a selection of featured gifts that we’ve fallen for, for whom it will make the perfect gift and more. Last to make our ultimate gift list was a mammoth coffee maker from DeLonghi, but today it’s all about the kids. If Christmas is for anyone, it’s for them, right?

If it’s a gift with meaning that you’re after, and something that will be cherished for years to come, then the Elf On The Shelf wants to make himself known. This little North Pole native comes with a gorgeous keepsake box and a children’s story book. Here’s how he works: When you adopt this special scout elf and name him, he receives his Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole?but only when all girls and boys are sound asleep! At the start of each festive season, the scout elf returns to his family’s house to be Santa’s eyes and ears, and every night he travels back to the North Pole to report in. Families can register their scout elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.

The kids will love it, and what’s more, they’ll be inspired to be on their best behaviour for at least one month of the year.

For added fun, get creative with your help and join fans over the world in their attempts to create the funniest elf set up at home. See our top pic here for inspiration.

Price: €35

Best to buy for: Kids under 10.
