How many times have you woken up realizing you forgot to move the flippin’ elf? Or maybe you’re out of places to hide everyone’s favorite snitch and don’t have the energy to replicate all those Pinterest-worthy hiding spots? Enter Santa’s Lazy Gnome, a book and plush combo that stays in the same spot, as in you won’t ever need to move or hide him.

Written by Julie DeForest, a mom who experienced Elf on the Shelf burnout, there’s no hide-and-seek involved with this mantle-topper (he “helps from one magical spot). The story explains the gnome and his powers—you can leave him wherever you want because he can see your kids wherever they go. Whether your kids are at home or school, The Lazy Gnome knows if they’re being naughty or nice.
