10 Gifts Your Elf On The Shelf Can Bring

Every December parents of the internet start to grumble about the Elf On The Shelf. And look, I get it, some of you got stuck with some of Santa’s naughty elves. It’s a mystery to us why Santa would even allow such rotten eggs to visit your homes and we feel for you. Luckily, we were blessed with a nice elf and he’s lovely. We welcome his appearance with open arms each holiday because he loves to play hide-and-go seek just like our boys do and he brings a few little treats for us leading up to the big day.

The Christmas Snowflake by Wonderbly is a visual and lyrical treat – illuminated with heartwarming characters, gorgeous illustrations and playful verse on every page. Up to 9 different family members can help Snowflake on the journey  to find the perfect home.

The whole family will love to read this festive tale together, and the sturdy hard cover is ideal for sharing year after year. It’s sure to become a new family tradition! 

As the final page is turned, you’ll find a charming pull-out-and-keep ornament – perfectly framing your family’s names in the book beneath. The Christmas Snowflake ornament is ready to be hung on your tree!

Personalizing and ordering is so easy, like all of Wonderbly’s personalized books, you can preview The Christmas Snowflake online before ordering so you can see exactly how each page will look.
