How about a Christmas ornament for their tree(s) and a family ornament. That way when they move out when older, they will have Christmas ornaments that will be cherished and remembered.

They have several now. As soon as the ornaments are out we take the shopping for their new ornament, they get to pick what they want and I mark the year on them. However I am doing that idea for one neice and a soon to be neice. Great minds think a like!

I love your idea, and just may implement it myself this year!

What's a good place to go to find more info on the Magic Elves?

Guess I missed this earlier...but here are a couple suggestions...

Flea markets or resale shops...I found three adorable elves for a dollar at the flea marker

Ornament aisle: look in the ornaments section...sometimes they have small stuffed elves that are suppose to be for ornaments but work equally well as Magic Elves.

I think these are all wonderful ideas! Ive always given my kids Pj's on christmas eve, but they are from me. They look forward to getting to open two gifts on christmas eve, one is pj's and the other is a small gift.

I love the idea of having trees in their rooms!

Minta,

Our family tradition is to open one gift on Christmas Eve and it is always PJ's (so the pictures look decent). I love the elf idea though.. such a cute idea (my DS is 12 now.. so I can't do this fun stuff.. well I can and then he'll just roll his eyes at me)..

I digress.. I was at TJ MAXX last night and they had some cute "elf like" collectibles and they were pretty reasonable $3-$10 range (depending on size) so I wanted to suggest maybe looking in places like that too...

Keep us posted!

PS.. good luck with the house sale and moving...

It's a wonderful idea! My parents would have a neighbor ring our doorbell and my Mom would present us with p.j.s from Santa's elves on Christmas Eve. I carried on that tradition with my own children and now grandchildren.

That sounds fantastic!!! I think it's a great way to spread out the magic of Christmas and I know when I was a kid I would have absolutely loved something like that!!!
