Science already tells us that decorating earlier for Christmas makes you happier, and now our hearts are telling us we need this Buddy the Elf wreath ($75). Etsy seller Erica Dutton, aka CustomDesignPress, is the crafty mastermind behind this hilarious wreath, which features the unmistakable smiling face of everybody's favorite character from the 2003 classic Elf. It's almost impossible to see the wreath without shouting, "Santa! Oh, my God! Santa's coming! I know him!" or, "I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite."

Unsurprisingly, this item has proven to be very popular and preorders are the way to go right now. The seller writes on Etsy, "There has been a very high demand for this wreath. Please understand that I will be working on orders as they come in. It can take up to 2-4 weeks to get it out to you." Erica told People she "wanted to make something that truly captures a childhood memory of watching Christmas movies." Having Buddy the Elf greet your guests at the door makes quite a statement — it says, "I don't mess around when it comes to the holidays."
