Celebrate the holiday season with your neighbors with this “You’ve Been Elfed“ free printable along with some fun gift ideas.
This You’ve Been Elfed printable is such a fun way to celebrate the season.
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.
Okay, now you know how I feel about giving, we’re making it easy for you with some fun and easy ideas.

What does Elfing mean? What is you’ve been Elfed?
For those that saw our How to Boo Someone. This is the Christmas version of being booed!
How do you elf a friend?
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. It 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?
The next time you are at the store, grab a few festive items. It can be as simple as a few packets of hot chocolate and a mug. Or as extensive as the basket we put together.
Some of our favorites that are always a hit.
- Candy canes
- Hot chocolate
Other Elfed ideas can include handmade cards, ornaments, Christmas crafts, or Christmas themed decoration.
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.
And then give!
Whether you decide to you’ve been jingled, or you’ve been elfed, you are going to make your neighbors happy.
Spreading Happiness and Joy during the holidays can make such an impact on people.
Especially with social distancing right now. Letting people know you care is that much sweeter.
We have seen these printable used as a you’ve been elfed office version!
Let your co-workers know that you are thinking about them and drop a few goodies with the printable off at their desk. Then they can turn around and do the same through the company.
