I am so very excited, as we all are! Mummy tells me that someone very special is coming to stay next month. I cannot WAIT to meet him!
He is a little Elf, who is being sent from Father Christmas to keep an eye on me, and check that I am being a good boy for Mummy. Of course, I am always a good boy!
I haven’t met him yet, but I think he is on his way, he will arrive on 1 December, and stay until Christmas Eve.
Mummy has told me that he is tiny, and a bit like a teddy, because I was starting to get a little bit spooked at him maybe being big, like Father Christmas.
Mummy will now tell you more about him, I am off to bed 😉
Mummy says …. ‘We are all so elf-cited!! I only heard about Elf on the Shelf this week, and have got totally caught up with it all! I felt that the original Elf (as great as he is) is a bit too grown up and freaky for Pickle, so I searched and searched for a suitable one. I found the Keel Toys Elf on line, and he is perfect. Except I left it a bit late, so ended up paying double the RRP, £11.98 including P&P but he is worth it. He is very soft and very cute. Our Elf Story this year is obviously inspired by the Elf on the Shelf story, but it is our version, I have adapted it to suit Pickle and our family.
I wanted Elf (he will be named when he ‘arrives’) to come in a box, with a whole load of treats, but not presents as such, or sweets / chocolate. Pickle is fast learning that most things are associated with sweeties or chocolate, especially at this time of the year, so I decided against it. I have had a brilliant day out shopping, sourcing what I wanted to pack with Elf. I found most of it in PoundLand and 99p Stores.
Here is what Elf will arrive with…
Elf’s little friend Reindeer 99p – 99p stores
Stripey Box with lid £1.49 Card Factory
Cute Reward Chart, with either smiley or sad Santa faces. £1 Pound Land
Light up reindeer battery lights (for Elf to decorate ;)) £1 Pound Land

24 gift tag cards (perfect size for a little message from Elf) 99p – 99p stores
20 mini Christmas pegs and string – for pegging up Elf’s little message cards 99p
Christmas Countdown black board and chalk £1 Pound Land
Watch out for our Elf-scapades throughout December, are you taking part this year!’
