With the holidays fast approaching, everyone is hard at work looking for the perfect holiday gifts to bless their loved ones. With our Holiday Gift Shop, students can now do all of their holiday shopping right at school to find meaningful gifts for everyone!
What is a Holiday Gift Shop?
Our Holiday Gift Shop (or “Santa’s Secret Shop”) is exactly what it sounds like: a unique gift shop that comes directly to your school, where children can browse personalized gift lines for family and friends and finish their festive shopping sooner rather than later. It’s like the book fair we all loved in our own elementary school days — but instead of books, it’s gifts for those you love!
Benefits of a Holiday Gift Shop
Gifting with Independence
Holiday Gift Shops are a beautiful way to give children autonomy over their gift-giving — and show them the joy of gifting something special to others! — this year. With the help of a school volunteer, the Holiday Gift Shop allows them to make their own choices about what they give and completely surprise their loved ones this holiday season. They even get to wrap the gifts themselves in self-sealing mylar gift bags, so the gifts come home fully wrapped and ready to go!
It’s difficult to let your child surprise you with a gift while keeping them safe online or in a busy shopping mall. With our Holiday Gift Shop, the shopping comes to your children in the safety of their own school! We can even offer a virtual holiday shop for schools that need an at-home option for their students.
Holiday Fun at School
A fun part of being in school around the holidays is all the festive activities that interrupt the schoolwork — ask any kiddo and we’re sure they’ll agree! That’s why having a Holiday Gift Shop at your school gives children another outlet for all that pre-holiday break energy buzzing through the halls. It helps contribute to the fun of the season!
No-Risk Gifts Guaranteed
Our Holiday Gift Shop is a no-risk program, meaning you only pay for what you sell. Any inventory that your students don’t purchase comes back to us at no cost to you, plus you can always re-order merchandise during your sale for those especially popular items! With Personal Coordinators available before, during, and after your sale, we’ll ensure you have everything you need to keep things running smoothly.
Even though parents aren’t there to oversee the shopping experience (because we want them to be surprised by their gifts too!), they still have complete control over how much money their child spends! Parents send their children to school with an envelope detailing how much their child can spend, making it easy for kids to shop our reasonably priced gifts within budget.

How the Holiday Gift Shop Works
Planning a Holiday Gift Shop for your school is easy! Choose the dates that work for your school, which inventory program you prefer, and what mark-ups you want to go with, and we’ll send you a Start Up kit with everything you need to start planning your shop: parent letters, money envelopes, posters, door and table covers, and a Step by Step promotional Guide. Fun Services drivers will hand deliver your merchandise to the classroom of your choice a day before your sale, and you’re open for business!
