If you're a lover of Christmas decorating trends that are a little kooky and outside the box then you are going to LOVE this adorable decor doll... Introducing gonks - yup, you heard that right. Gonks are essentially soft Christmas gnomes that kind of resemble adorable, mini, bearded, fuzzy little Santas and, much like the rest of the Christmas loving population,  we're obsessed.

Obviously, we always keep an eye on the festive trends that are receiving a lot of internet traffic and we were a little confused when we saw gonks have been popping up all over the place. Not only are they adorably child-friendly, they're also a Nordic Christmas decor staple and if they're good enough for Scandi interiors, they're good enough for us.
