Montrose Secret Santa is one of the most anticipated traditions of the school year. Students, teachers, and even Fr. Dick take part by drawing another participant’s name out of a hat and exchanging presents the following week.

This years dates and price ranges have been released! The first day ($1-2) is Wednesday, December 14. Day 2, December 15th, is a donation to the Medfield Youth Outreach Program. Friday, December 16th is Day 3, with gift prices ranging between $3-5. Remember to bring both Day 4 and Day 5 presents ($5-7 and $7-12) on Monday, December 19th.

While Secret Santa is a beloved tradition, Montrose students tend to have difficulty choosing gifts for their recipient every year. Many girls attribute this to the fact that they usually need to buy a present for an unfamiliar student or teacher. After three years of Secret Santa experience, I have put together a gift guide with gift suggestions for students of all ages, as well as teachers. Enjoy!

Student Gift Ideas:

  • Fuzzy socks
  • Candy or chocolate, especially peppermint bark
  • Travel size lotions – many students love the 3 for $12 Bath and Body Works deal
  • Silly holiday “ears” or headbands
  • Nail polish
  • Earbuds – you can never have too many pairs
  • Small cosmetic bag
  • Hot cocoa mix
  • Bubble bath, bath bombs, etc.
  • Card game or book
  • Gift cards – if you can’t think of anything else, I guarantee a Starbucks or iTunes gift card will be appreciated
  • A new movie – there are usually great deals around the holidays, so you should be able to grab a DVD for under $10
  • Scented candle
  • Infinity scarf
  • Mini perfume set – Target has the best sales in December on these!
  • Anything in festive, Christmas colors

Teacher Gift Ideas:

  • Coffee mug
  • Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, or Barnes and Noble gift card
  • Box of chocolates – Ghirardelli, Godiva and Lindt are always good options
  • Adult coloring book and markers
  • New set of whiteboard markers
  • Journal or notebook
  • Desk calendar
  • Christmas ornament
  • Baking mix or homemade sweets
  • Cozy blanket
