  • My son bought things from our Santa Shop this year too! They are wrapped and under the tree, he is dying to go ahead and tell me but I wont let

    Last year he bought me a Christmas candle, he was so proud...tells me to smell it all the time! :)

  • Don't get too excited! LOL! It will just be something cheesey. BUT it's so sweet to let them surprise you on Christmas. Yes, this is the first year that my youngest's school is doing it. He is in 6th grade and excited about it.

  • One school did Santa Shop - honestly - it was all pure, over priced crap.

  • My school did this when I was a kid, it was so exciting. My daughter's school does not as far as I know. I do send her out with my hubby to get something for me and I take her to get something for dad. I'm a little better at pointing her in a good direction (she's four) so he's getting a computer game he wanted that she has played with him. I just took her to the PC games and she immediately recognized it, so she did pick it out, just with a bit of help locating the right section, lol. I have three things under the tree from her and I'm concerned one might be a pillow pet, but I'm hoping it's a blanket or something along those lines! lol

  • Yes, our school calls it Candy Cane Lane. We give the kids $5 to buy each other gifts.

  • oh, i dont mind how cheesy it is. im half expecting it, since i only had to pay $2 per person lol! i kinda peeked inside the one she got for her sister and saw the top of a book, that's actually really nice. dont know which book but my 2 year old will love it no matter what. and i will love that she thought of me no matter what's inside the package =)
