Start Your Holiday Season With Elf On The Shelf®! #Giveaway

Disclosure:  This is not a compensated post, however, it may contain affiliate links.

The story of Elf on the Shelf is simple:

    The Elf on the Shelf® is a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts an elf and gives it a name, the elf receives its Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus about all of the day’s adventures. Each morning, the elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to watch the fun. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their elf each morning.

    There are two simple rules that every child knows when it comes to having an elf. First, an elf cannot be touched; Christmas magic is very fragile and if an elf is touched it may lose that magic and be unable to fly back to the North Pole. Second, an elf cannot speak or move while anyone in the house is awake! An elf’s job is to watch and listen.

  1. Sandy VanHoey says

    I would put in the pantry or fridge to get into some goodies

  2. I think it would be fun to hide him un unexpected places. Maybe he can catch the monster in my kiddos closet and finally get rid of him for good.

  3. Yesenia Torres says

    My favorite holiday tradition it’s Christmas dinner.

  4. Yesenia Torres says

    In my dryer machine? In my microwave ? Maybe in my husband boots !

  5. Donna Cheatle says

    I think I’m going to have to make a saddle so he can ride the cat!

  6. Amanda @ Erickson and Co. says

    haha! This looks like a fun way to get your kids to behave!

  7. There aren’t that many places I can place an Elf on the Shelf but maybe on the refrigerator. That way he can watch the kids while they sneak in there at nights. 🙂

  8. This actually looks like fun! Of course I don’t have any children and my furbaby cat would bat it around if that elf DARED to sit on any shelf that she wanted to sit on!!

  9. Last year I started doing the elf on the shelf thing with my boys. I feel like I was a little late jumping on the band wagon, but they enjoyed it none the less. I had ours do all sorts of silly things every morning and the kids loved seeing what he got into over night!

  10. Jennifer Williams says

    I have been wanting to get this so I can see what it is. Jut heard of it this year.

  11. The elf on a shelf is such a cute idea. I think it helps to keep the kids busy waiting for Christmas.

  12. Daisy Tremorev says

    My son would love this and so would I! I would leave it everywhere – the living room couch, mantle, bed, kitchen counter… it sounds like fun!

  13. Maria Sinclair says

    I can’t wait to start my elf on the Shelf. The kids love to help with every pose! They are older so it helps get them excited about the season.

  14. I think the Elf on the Shelf tradition is adorable. I wish I had one of these when my children were younger.

  15. Adrianne Braun says

    I would hide my Elf on the Shelf in the linen closet.

  16. Eileen A Vicenty says

    I will hide that Elf in the oven, that’s were my family look daily, no fresh bread an Elf jejje!

  17. i would put him playing my son’s guitar

  18. Looks like a fun tradition.

  19. scentednights2002 says

    I’d place him near my computer.

  20. We did not have this tradition when I was growing up or with my own children. I just recently saw people posting about it on Facebook. We have lots of places where I would place him but most likely if I won this, I would give it to my nephew and his family. They would love it.

  21. Amberlee Cave says

    I really want to get one of these this year. They sound like so much fun! I’m sure my girls would love it! Thanks!

  22. I’ve had to come up with all kinds of creative places. My daughter loved finding him in her lunch bag one day, but was careful not to touch him so he wouldn’t lose his magic!

  23. Karen Hewitt says

    We love Apple, our Elf. He turns up after ThanksGiving with new PJ’s for the kids

  24. I really want an Elf I had such fun seeing what everyones got up to last year – just need to find a stockiest over here. x

  25. I think our Elf would FOR SURE make a mess in the kitchen while baking cupcakes!!

  26. I have never heard about Elf on a Shelf before, what a cute idea 😀

  27. I have always wanted to do this with my kids. I need to get organized and do it this year.

  28. Simus Corner says

    Even though my kids are teenagers, they still would love the Elf on a Shelf! It’s hilarious, and great – a nice “new” tradition!

  29. Teresa McCluskey says

    I would leave my elf on the shelf on my fire place

  30. Melanie Roberts says

    We love Elf on the Shelf and we have this tradition going in our home; it’s fun to find Elf in different places… Thanks for sharing

  31. Denise Taylor-Dennis says

    I would put the Elf on my son couch so he would see it when he wakes up in the morning.

  32. Amanda MacMahon says

    our elf was discovered in our move so now he’s just a doll 🙂

  33. I love the story and I think it is lots of fun for little ones!

  34. How fun! I would love one of these to put on a shelf. He is so cute.

  35. Meet the Fur-Bombers says

    I was wondering what this was all about, I’ve seen a few FB friends asking what age would be a good age to start this tradition… I had no clue about this… Now I know! Thanks!

  36. TiffsPixieDust says

    I’d put it in a cabinet or pantry where I know my child would go into.

  37. MichellePerry Mommy of 4 says

    I just learned about Elf on the Shelf. My kids have a serious problem with selective hearing. I really think that if they saw the Elf everyday and knew he was reporting back to Santa they will behave. Hey a girl can wish right?!

  38. Alexandra Ruiz says

    It’s simply amazing that you have come together to do this for a family! Merry Christmas to you all from our family!

  39. I would love to do this! Unfortunately I cannot afford to so I’d love to win one!

  40. Karen Presley Dawkins says

    My favorite holiday tradition? So hard to choose!!! Probably my favorite is the book gift we give each year. My husband and I have a date day to shop at our local bookstore (I do some recon online beforehand). We select a book for each of our kids that signifies something of their year: becoming a big brother, starting dance lessons, learning how to read… Inside the front cover, we each write a personal note to the kids. The older two (19 and 16 this year) consider their book the best gift of the year. They open the book and quietly read their notes, a couple times tearing up! I will continue this with my grandkids (one day — not too soon!).

  41. nickie burke says

    I’d put him over my fire place

  42. Wanda McHenry says

    I’d put him on our television

  43. Stephanie Larison says

    I’d put him up where I keep the cereal in the cabinet.

  44. Joni Dolniak says

    I would put him in my daughter’s lunch.

  45. skynkatesmom says

    I would sit him up on top of the refrigerator

  46. In the dog’s dish, in the cookie jar, in the cereal box.

  47. i would place my elf on the shelf on the refrigerator

  48. Ryan Minton says

    hanging out with barbie!

  49. on the ceiling fan

  50. lafittelady says

    I would hide it in the dog’s bed.

  51. Paula Michele says

    I would hide him in the fridge after he turned the milk green 🙂

  52. I think a great place to hide ELF is in the medicine cabinet so when they grab the toothpaste or maybe up in the visor of my wife’s car.

    I would stick him in the freezer eating ice cream!
