Long ago Scandinavians believed gnomes were elves that protected their homes and farms. Over time through folklore the elves become popular for their role in helping Santa and were seen as gift bearers.
Our gift bearers hold their own little stocking that can be filled with candy canes and other goodies! They look great on shelves with their legs dangling over. They sit approximately 25cm high (bottom to tip of hat) dependent on their hat. The gnomes body is weighted, allowing them to sit on their own.
