Is it even Christmas without a visit from the Elf on the Shelf? After all, many families consider time spent with their Scout Elf to be among their favorite Christmas traditions—and for a houseguest who's determined to make mischief everywhere he goes, that's quite the compliment. The problem, of course, is how to make sure your Elf has as good of a time as you. Like any holiday guest, he can't possibly be expected to provide hours of entertainment without receiving anything in return! And we think they deserve it... considering they flew all the way from The North Pole!
That's where these Elf on the Shelf accessories come into play. These hilarious finds include holiday baking sets (complete with an apron), cowboy getup, an inflatable toboggan, sparkly mermaid tails, "Elfbucks" coffee drinks, and even superhero-themed Elf on the Shelf clothes, all of which will intrigue, fascinate, and generally delight your Elf. You wouldn't think of hosting a family Christmas movie night without providing your Elf with a drive-in movie experience of his own, right? So as your Elves find their way back to your home (courtesy of the best Elf on the Shelf return ideas), be sure to put the finishing touches on their grand entrance with the picks we've rounded up.
Of course, for the truly creative Elf hosts out there, these accessories should merely serve as a jumping-off point. As with our favorite Elf on the Shelf ideas and Elf on the Shelf names, there are no rules when it comes to dreaming up new ideas for keeping that little mischief-maker busy throughout the season!
