Reindeer In Here– is an early holiday gift from Santa that includes a Christmas friend, book and plush set. Children are excited to receive Reindeer In Here, and they get to pick the reindeer’s name, gender, and take them everywhere with them, including bedtime. Parents love this stress-free Christmas tradition, and can finally ditch Elf on the Shelf for a magical reindeer that is meant to be cuddled and loved during the holiday season. A California-dad created Reindeer In Here for his children so that they would have a positive Christmas tradition. In just a short amount of time, Reindeer In Here has become the most awarded Christmas tradition brand. This is how it works: each night, the reindeer communicates your child’s wishes to Santa, and on Christmas Eve, children put their reindeer under the tree so Santa can take it back to the North Pole, where they’ll live until their return early next December. Reindeer In Here is proud to celebrate that being different is normal. The cuddly reindeer has one antler that is smaller than the other, meant to represent the uniqueness of every child. This year, more than ever, children, may be missing family and friends, and their Reindeer In Here can make an early appearance to boost everyone’s mood and celebrate!
Reindeer In Here is available on Amazon.
