30+ Ideas for Your Elf on the Shelf

Still Need an Elf? Get Your Elf on the Shelf here.Remember when your Elf on the Shelf was content just sitting on a shelf? Those days are over! We live in a Pinterest perfect work and our elves are not immune! They get more creative every year and now require props, accessories and new outfits–some wearing Elf Couture! This year’s elf might even need a mask (tell your elf to look on Etsy–our elf liked this mask.)

We caught a our favorite elf moments on camera, and we’re thinking by sharing these, your elves may be inspired. Perhaps you can leave your computer open to this post tonight to give them some ideas.  Send us some pictures of your elf/elves because more than ever, at this time of year, it takes a village.

Don’t have an elf? Pop into your local book or toy shop or order one here:  Elf on the Shelf.

Thanks for sharing, Hilary Wallace.

Instead of sitting on a shelf, sometimes, I like to hang from one.

Hanging onto a helium balloon!

Feeling a little knocked around.

Feeling nuttier than usual.

Using suckers shoes to navigate across the ceiling in the room!

I can also use my sucker shoes to scale the windows.

Keeping fit until Christmas.

Going on a hike.
