Only 6 days until Christmas now! As I mentioned yesterday, we’ve invited our friends on Google+ to the Northpole.com Official Countdown to Christmas 2012 where they can upload photos of how they’re celebrating Christmas and celebrate with the rest of the world. If you’re on Google+, we hope you’ll join us! (If you’re not on Google+ yet, you can sign up here.)
Want to see some of our favourite photos from yesterday? Check ‘em out over here!
I guess everyone was really busy today (finishing up their Christmas shopping, perhaps?) because we only had one photo submission on the Event page today—from me
My favourite section of my tree: photo of my basset hound, a wee julbock, hearts from London and Sweden, a hippo, and Troy Polamalu!
Only 6 Days until Christmas and even fewer shopping days left! The Land of Nod has all kinds of special toys and gifts for your loved ones, but hurry! Today is the deadline for standard shipping, although you can still order by the 21st and choose express shipping. Need some ideas? Here’s a mix of fun, functional, and educational toys.
We want everyone to join in and share the excitement as we count down to Christmas together. Santa asked us to create this Event on Google+ to bring everyone’s amazing Christmas memories together in one spot. Whether you’re at the North Pole or the South Pole—or anywhere in between—you can join this Event and share your special Christmas memories with the world.
While we love all of the posts on the Event page, we will be selecting some of our favorite photos each day between now and Christmas, and we will be posting them here on the Elf Blog. So, without further ado, here are a few of our favorites from today!
Whitney D. said, “My friend’s tree theme: ‘Santa!’ Can you tell?”
Jimmy C. said, “I baked these yummy buns from Mrs. Claus’ Cookbook!”
Jennifer D. posted this photo with a “reindog.” Too cute!

This Kindle Fire HD has a 7 inch display that delivers HD video, rich colors, and crisp text. If you’ve been eyeing one of these, you may also like to know that you get a free trial of Amazon Prime. (What’s Amazon Prime? Find out here.)
Mount this Backup Color Camera System on your car so you can easily see what’s behind you when you’re backing up your car. This is great for those who would like extra assurance knowing that there are no small children, pets, or other objects behind them. The camera mounts on the rear of your car with a video monitor on the dashboard. Plus, it has night vision so you can see even in low light.
I love the simplicity of this craft—all you need is glue, paper, and clothespins! They are cute with just the paper, and even cuter when you add tiny appliqués. Make several for yourself, or give them away as gifts.
Are you counting down the days til Christmas yet? We are! With only 7 days until Christmas, there is still so much to do. On that note, if you there are still items on your gift list, check out all the neat gifts at WorldMarket.com. I picked out some of my favorite ideas for stocking stuffers.
I love almost anything pumpkin, which is why I like this Mexican Pumpkin Candle. You’ll get 30 hours of delicious-smelling burn time, plus a beautiful travel tin, making it convenient to transport.
Llamas are already super cute and fluffy, but this handcrafted, Peruvian Knitted Llama tops them all with its adorable Andean chullo.
I love a cute pen, so when I saw these wooden pens shaped like Christmas figurines, I was so tickled.

Up here at the North Pole, we have a penchant for all things sparkly, so I immediately fell for this wee tribe of glittery reindeer. And if their thick coats of red glitter weren’t enough, check out their shiny silver hooves—love ‘em!
Here’s a twist on a traditional gift card holder. Make your gift memorable by wrapping it up in a lovely handmade (and reusable) holder! Cardstock works best for making a durable holder, but you can use any type of paper to decorate it.
