‘Santa’s Lazy Gnome’ Is Like Elf on a Shelf...for Parents Who Just Can’t Even
The glaring problem with the Elf on the Shelf? (You know, aside from the thing being inexorably creepy?) With the constant posing and moving and placing, it becomes a pain in the butt for sleep-deprived parents to orchestrate.
Thankfully, one mom took it upon herself to improve the hook for everyone, while still maintaining the tradition's trickery integrity. Her invention? Santa's Lazy Gnome—the watchful Christmas tchotchke you can simply leave on your mantle to bribe your children into good behavior.
Bonus: It even comes with its own accompanying picture book so you can educate your wee ones on the gnome's totally storied and legit history. (Wink, wink.)
