English term or phrase: Christmas elf
Your little boy is so cute in his Christmas outfit. He looks just like one of santa's little Christmas elves.

I think it is something that sounds like tuntaguver

I think that would be the closest approximation. But sounding like "tuntaguver" I would rather suppose "tomtegubbe" would be the word. However, as "gubbe" is an old man, you would hardly call a child "gubbe".
