Did you have a Christmas tradition as a child?
When I was younger, we had a homemade quilted Christmas tree with 25 tie strings of yarn that our mother tied Hershey's Kisses to. The tree hung on the wall, and every day starting on December 1st, we'd get to take a Kiss off as a countdown to Christmas. My mom even managed to tie two Kisses to each day so that my brother and I did not have to fight over the Kiss for the day!
Last year while babysitting my three nieces, I learned about a new popular Christmas tradition – the Elf on the Shelf! They had one of Santa's girl scout elves that they named “Elsa”. Every morning when the girls woke up, they would scour the house to see where Elsa's new hiding space would be. The girls were so excited to show me where she showed up that morning, perched high up on the porch.
It's a fun-filled Christmas tradition that's captured the hearts of children everywhere who welcome home one of Santa’s scout elves each holiday season. The elves are magical helpers that help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists by reporting back to him at the North Pole nightly.
When I got offered the chance to review the Elf on the Shelf Holiday Gift Bundle: Boy Scout Elf With Christmas Tradition Storybook and Polar Pattern Winter Wear Set, I immediately said “Yes!” as I thought it would be the perfect Christmas gift for my new favorite nephew (my only nephew) that is due to be born in three weeks.
The Elf on the Shelf Holiday Gift Bundle includes:
- Hardcover Book entitled “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” written by Carol V. Aebersold and Chanda A. Bell and illustrated by Coe Steinwart. The book is a cleverly rhymed story about the story of Santa’s scout elves, who are sent to be Santa’s eyes and ears at children’s homes around the world
- Boy Scout Elf (with brown eyes) which you can register to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa. Girl Scout Elves are also available, and both genders are available with different eye colors.
- Claus Couture Collection Polar Pattern Set which includes accessories for your elf, such as a plaid flap cap, reversible scarf and candy cane striped socks.

I think I will give this accessory set to my nieces so they can dress up Elsa this year for the holidays. My nephew will be none the wiser. I can't wait for my brother and sister-in-law to start this family tradition next year with their new son.
