Making their first appearance in a book published in 1856, Christmas elves are tiny magical creatures known for helping Santa. Not only do they make toys, they also look after the majestic reindeers and discreetly spy on children to determine the nice and naughty lists. These lovely dwarf-like characters, with long and pointy ears, are perfect to reinforce the gleeful spirit of Christmas.
Due to their central place in the Christmas mythology, elves have gained a prominent place in Festive wholesale range throughout the years. Our delightful hanging ornaments, tabletop and room decorations, shaped into lovely elves, are designed to provoke laugh and merrily enliven any home.

Did you know that Americans place a gherkin made of glass on their Christmas tree? In the United States, stockings, baubles, wire lights, and presents are not the only mandatory festive items! The Christmas gherkin definitely has a crucial part in the gleeful celebrations.
Adding a gherkin to a Christmas tree is a popular tradition, believed to have first seen the day in Germany. This cheery custom works as follows: parents wait until Christmas Eve to hide a small glass ornament shaped into a gherkin on their tree. The gherkin has to be concealed between the branches so it remains out of sight. When Christmas day arrives, children wake up with one mission: finding the hidden gherkin. The first to spot the decoration on the tree is either rewarded with an extra present, or is promised a year of good fortune.
At Festive, we believe in putting foreign traditions into the spotlight. This year, we are introducing our own gherkin. Wearing a lovely Santa hat, our gherkin is ideal to spend fun family times.
