The countdown to the beginning of December is always an exciting time in our house. Not only if is the start of advent but it signals the arrival of our elf, Jack. He’s been visiting us for a few years now and the children get very excited about his annual trip to stay with us.

I in turn was excited to introduce them to this Magical Elf Door, as I knew it would add another magical dimension to this special time of the year.  It comes freestanding (but you can fix it to the wall if you wish) and with a switch to turn on the light – which really makes it super enchanting for little ones.

The kids love that Jack now has a little portal to take him straight back to the North Pole every night. They will be receiving special letters from Santa’s helpers every day, so the fact that there is a door that performs magic, will only add to their excitement.

The detail on the door is so lovely, complete with a doorbell (no sound) and a letterbox (non opening). It looks really oldy worldy and just as you’d imagine the doorways to be.

You can switch about the signs too with different messages and that really makes it very quirky and more personalised for your children.

This has to be the sweetest door I have seen and I think it works quite well placed around the chimney breast in our lounge.

Elf for Christmas have some wonderful ideas to make Christmas that little bit more magical and another one of my favourites is the advent letters. Each pack comes with 24 individual letters that have been written from an elf. It’s a great way to encourage your child to write letters back to their little pen pal, who is giving them an insight into life in the North Pole!

I know that our elf door will be marvelled over for many more years to come and it makes such a wonderful tradition to be brought out year upon year.
