Everyone has their favorite holiday movies that they want to play on repeat once November 1st hits, but one of the most universally beloved has to be Elf. It tells the story of Buddy the Elf — a human that accidentally ended up in the North Pole when he was a baby, just to be raised by elves — as he travels to New York City to find his father. It's as heartwarming as it is funny and as enjoyable for kids to watch as it is for adults. After all, there are so many great moments, like his very quick tenure as a mailroom sorter, an infamous dinner of spaghetti and maple syrup and his first date by the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. It's easy to watch again and again!

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film (yes, that will make some of us feel a little old — me included), Pottery Barn, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, has released a collection paying homage to the movie. There's a fun Buddy the Elf pillow, beautiful stoneware plates and bowls, monogrammed stockings and even bed linens. The detailing is so fun and will be sure to get your guests quoting their favorite lines from the film, which will inevitably lead to your fifth rewatch this season alone. Of course, that's the best part of the holiday season: spending time with those you love and spreading Christmas Cheer wherever you go.

This might be the cutest item in the collection, and it's sure to be a centerpiece on a bed or a couch. After all, it's a pillow that looks just like your favorite elf in the North Pole! The teddy faux fur is made of incredibly rich yarn-dyed fiber that won't fade no matter how many hugs and cuddles it gets by the people in your household. And, of course, it's sure to spread some serious Christmas Cheer.

If making your own advent calendar sounds like a fun holiday tradition to you, try it out with this gorgeous, reusable option that features 55 LED lights. Each door is designed with fun, Elf-themed pictures and the whole image itself tells a story: Follow it as it travels through the Candy Cane Forest, past the Sea of Swirly Twirly Gumdrops, and right through the Lincoln Tunnel. Fill it with fun trinkets and candy, and it'll soon be a tradition your family will look forward to every year.

These glass and resin ornaments are such fun homages to the movie Elf, but look elegant and classic on a Christmas tree, too.
