The Christmas season is here and it could not be coming at a better time as we could all use a little extra joy and cheer in our lives after the craziness that is 2020.
We all know how obsessed the kiddos get with their Elf on the Shelf every year and even though it can be a little overwhelming to keep up with the Elf’s daily antics, it sure is worth it to see the surprise and smile on our little one’s faces.
But what about the older kids? They deserve a little holiday happiness too, don’t they? Hip2Save reader Mary had an idea on how to reinvent the holiday elf and put a teen spin on it!
I wanted to share a fun idea that our teenagers are enjoying. This pandemic is very hard and even harder on some more than others. I wanted to create some fun in our household. I came up with Elf on the Shelf for teens!
My husband and I came up with some fun small gift ideas and creative ways to gift them from the elves! They each have their own, which I used my Cricut to name them. We create fun ways to present the fun gifts. It may be a box of Tic-Tacs for the pillow and a box of candy for the bed (like in the top picture) or Gift cards to Starbucks! They have enjoyed this and so have we! They look forward to the next goofy idea we come up with! I hope you all at Hip2Save are staying safe and well!
Thank you, Mary, for sharing this super fun and festive idea with us! Your ideas are so awesome and I am sure your teens are super thankful to have such thoughtful and fun parents to ease the stress of the pandemic and make the holiday season extra special. This is going to be something they always remember and it may even become a new tradition!
