Felt Swedish Christmas gnomes (also called Scandinavian gnomes or Nordic gnomes) have become very popular for Christmas decor.
These gnomes with their big felt hats and even bigger noses are a cute and cozy addition to any room of the house.
Great as table decorations, mantel decor, on the piano or near the Christmas tree. They are also fantastic gifts!
I bought one of these for my grandmother and she LOVED it. It was like she had a new little friend.
The Tomte is the Swedish gnome while the Nisse is the Norwegian gnome.
Gnome or Tomte, according to Scandinavian folklore , bearded men guard homes, farms and children, particularly at night, protecting them from misfortune.
