Like this one, decent value £19.49 including delivery - includes a toy elf, letter from santa, elf passport, behaviour charts, elf report card, elf mischief ideas and choc coins. It is also personalised.

I bought a small pair of fake fur boots last year. They were meant to be a tree decoration but I cut the ribbon off, put them in the fireplace (it's a big one with one of those black stove fires with a door in it so it was safe) and told DS that the elf in the chimney had left them there.

He was thrilled and I said the elf was shy so peeped out when we weren't looking.

He's also got a set of Russian dolls painted like Father Christmas that he keeps out all year. They came from Poundland and I told him that Father Christmas can use anything that looks like him to keep watch every now and again and check who's being naughty or nice.

I have just pre ordered the elf on a shelf from ebay for 29.99 with free postage, not cheap and I could have got a cheaper elf off amazon but I wanted the "proper" elf as I have also bought the elf on the shelf dvd so wanted them to match. ... im weird like that! I figure it's an investment as it'll last for years....maybe ill hand it on for future grandkids.

Thanks samlamb that's great and considering getting that one. My DD loves books and I would love to get the book too. Anyone know where I can get just the book from?

I bought an elf from Amazon think it was 15 quid. You can usually get the rest of the stuff online.

I also got the one linked by samlamb, only I got it on amazon for similar price (few years ago now)

I bought a bog standard elf (technically I think it'd a pixie) from tiger last year for £4. Im going to see if I can make them more xmassy with some glitter and tinsel.
I think they are nicer than the ones that come with the book.

Amazon for £30 but it was great fun. Considering getting another for dd2.

I've been looking too and they all seem to be £30+. Amazon have them at £55! shock

I got mine from the book depository last year for £20ish. not cheap but saw it as an investment. you can just buy any old elf though but probably need to wait until nearer the time

Even looking on eBay I can't see any that don't break the bank; I would have thought that some of last year's might be up for sale. Where would you go to buy yours?
