Wouldn’t it be nice if like Santa, we too, had little Christmas elves to help us? Wish granted! We are here to be your honorary CHARM IT! Christmas elves and spread cheer with a “12 Days of Christmas” Surprise Pack!

Day 1:

Kick off the 12 Days of Christmas Surprises with a cute little lunch box love note. Write your own or simply cut out the one we (your honorary CHARM IT! elves) have provided. Even the Grinch himself would crack a smile upon finding a note like this next to his carrot sticks!
