20+ of the Funniest Elf on the Shelf Return Ideas
Odds are, you and your family are already in on the fabulous Christmas tradition of the Elf on the Shelf—and for good reason. The job of these troublemakers is to silently watch over kids in the days leading up to Christmas, reporting their "naughty" or "nice" behavior to Santa (while showcasing their own naughty behavior on full display). There's no better—or more hilarious—holiday houseguest!
But while there are plenty of Elf on the Shelf ideas to go around for the middle of the month, deciding how to welcome back your Elf is a whole other ballgame.

They're not just coming for one day, after all—they're planning to stay for a month!
