Buddy the Elf, with the carefree love of life and unconditional belief in all things good, like Santa, has enchanted us since he first appeared on movie screens in 2003.  Whether he was spelling out the four main food groups of elves (candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup) or recounting his travels from the North Pole to NYC (I passed through the seven levels of the candy cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gumdrops), Buddy the Elf made us feel hopeful. 

He’s since become a holiday fixture in many a home and heart each Christmas. We’ve found 13 Must Haves that would make any fan of Buddy the Elf happy and bright. Only a cotton-headed ninny-muggins would miss out on these fun finds. 

  • ELF Minimal Movie Poster

    I’m a huge fan of Chungkong’s minimalist take on movie posters. His reimagining of the ELF movie poster is beautiful in its simplicity. His print would be a great addition to your home or office décor this season or make the perfect holiday gift. It’s available in sizes starting at 10”x7” to 60”x43”.
