What have other customers loved about this product?
"My 5th & 6th graders kept begging to do a Secret Santa, but my admin wouldn't let us do a gift exchange. This was a fun way to compromise, and we added in a hand made gift as well. Thanks for putting this together!" (Thank you, Christy C.!)

"My students loved this activity. It gave them something positive to look forward to each day! Can't wait to use it again with next year's class!" (Thank you, SuperinFourth!)

"I used this with my 5th graders last year for the first time. It was a HIT! Kids loved reading what their Secret Santa said about them. And on the last day, we had donuts and juice and revealed our Secret Santas." (Thank you, Amanda Y.!)
