Im trying to think of ways to welcome our elf... do I just hide him before I go to bed so hes waiting for ds to find on dec 1st do I sit him next to ds advent calendar? I have the elf on a shelf dvd should I start letting him watch that in nov and reading him the book so he understands what the elf is (ds is 3, 4 in feb)

I have started putting together his Christmas eve hamper and its looking great:
So far it includes:

Christmas dressing gown
Christmas pjs
Christmas slipper socks
Bubble bath
Christmas cup
Sweets in an elf shape jar
Christmas dvd
Christmas story
Key for santa
Christmas chocolate lolly
Santa stop here sign to hang on his bedroom door before bed
A letter from his elf
Reindeer food

Is that everything or has anybody else got ideas?

Is the hamper idea more for your own gratification, OP?
