Poundland have released their very own line of elf accessories and outfits to make your Christmas countdown extra mischievous.

It's almost the first day of December - which can only mean one thing. No, not the first day of opening doors on your non-chocolate advent calendar (opens in new tab), or an excuse to enjoy mulled wine (opens in new tab) any time - but the return of a modern Christmas tradition (opens in new tab) enjoyed by households all over the world. Elf on the Shelf.

While the Christmas visitor has been a part of many family Christmas countdowns for some years now, parents have been getting more and more creative with their Elf on the Shelf ideas (opens in new tab) over the last few years. This year, the creators of the elf have even launched a line of outfits and festive garments for people to buy to add extra fun to their time with them this December.

In addition, this year Poundland are selling their very own 'variety of elf sweaters' as well as handy accessories for any parents looking to bring their elf to life in a series of mischievous scenarios for their children.

As well as mini winter warmers to dress your elf up in, Poundland are also selling a mini elf Post box so that he can send and receive letters from Santa, and an elf swing seat so that your Christmas visitor can turn practically anything into a playground.

If you're hesitating investing in an Elf on the Shelf but want to give the tradition a try this year, Poundland are also selling their own version of the mysterious festive visitor, called 'Elf Behaving Badly'.

Priced at just £2 and featuring a very jazzy pair of striped leggings, this is one festive purchase that you don't have to feel guilty about leaving in the attic next Christmas if the tradition doesn't go down as well as planned with the kids - or their parents!

Poundland say they are hoping to add something 'really special' to the festive season this year with their fun elf themed products priced between £2 and £5.

'Our cheeky Elf Behaving Badly range will guarantee hours of fun,' say the store.
