Giving gifts is a big part of this holiday season. We make it a point to show the kids that its not about their wish lists for Santa, or making gingerbread houses and cookies. While those things are fun and festive and we enjoy doing them, the reason for Christmas is Jesus. It is Jesus’ birthday and we celebrate him by striving our best to emulate him.
Be kind, be gracious, be giving!
There are many traits you want your children to poses, but if I could get them to have those three, then I know they will be on their way to a incredible life.
Give my friends. Give to your friends, neighbors, classmates. Even if you don’t know your community, give and you will be seen as the light.

It is a fun way to surprise your friends, neighbors, and or co-workers with a fun holiday gift without them knowing who its from. There is a you’ve been elfed free printable included with the gift that they can display that shares that they have been elfed and then encourages them to continue the tradition onto another friend, neighbor or co-worker. My kids even enjoy ringing the doorbell and running away leaving the treats. Fun, simple, and anonymous.
What to include in an elfed gift?
Grab a few festive items when you’re at the store next. Whether its as simple as a few packets of hot chocolate in a mug, or a more like the basket we put together with candy canes, chocolates, and other elfed ideas.If you know your neighbors, make sure to grab things that they like or dietary restrictions. If you aren’t as familiar with them, then something simple like some homemade cookies or jar of hot chocolate is great.
