Utah mom and author Julie DeForest was sick of having to rack her brain for clever ways to keep her kids behaving throughout the holiday season.

So instead of scanning Pinterest for a new way for an elf to get into trouble, Julie wants you to kick back and enjoy quality time with your family this season. That's why she created, "Santa's Lazy Gnome."

The book is written by DeForest and illustrated by Andrew Laitinen. It comes with a Lazy Gnome, sent from Santa himself.

The Lazy Gnome is adorable and easy to maintain. You won't have to play hide and seek or any silly games to keep this Santa helper around.

"The Lazy Gnome helps with the Naughty/Nice list. These mysterious friends report to Santa if you're naughty or nice, even when you're out of sight," says DeForest.
