It’s that time of year again – Christmas in July! We are officially in the second half of the calendar year, so if you haven’t already signed your school up for the Original and only locally owned and operated Holiday Gift Shop®/Santa’s Secret Shop® it’s the perfect time to sign up! Signing up now, gives you one less thing on your PTO’s back to school list. Check this items off your list today, sign up now. Click HERE to download an agreement, fill it out, then you can scan/e-mail it, or take a photo and send us the photo. If you have questions before you sign up, give us a call, we are here Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm 1-800-772-7587.
If you already use us, spread the word, if you get another school to sign up and they run a shop with us, YOUR school earns $50. Who doesn’t like extra money? We could reduce your bill, or we could send you $50 in free gifts to use as giveaways, teacher gifts, or anything you choose!
We personally deliver the gifts to your school. This means one less stress and worry for when your gifts will be delivered and no concerns on a shipping delay. I know the year we were forced to ship gifts, I watched numerous gifts take a tour of the country before they reached their destination, which made no sense, so eliminate that concern with our friendly delivery drivers.
Our gift line always includes local sports teams, so with us you can expect to see Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons, University of Michigan and Michigan State University. In Indiana? Don’t worry, we have some special Indiana team gifts lined up for our 2022 gifts! Plus we feature very popular dog and cat toys! Trust us, the pet toys are a huge hit, children like to get a gift for their favorite family pet.
We are excited to be gearing up for company picnic season! It’s been a long time since our warehouse has been buzzing with this much company picnic activity. We have noticed that not only are WE excited to be having events, people are extremely excited to attend events. Most events we’ve discovered attendance has been up and people are happy to be out and about socially again.
Our picnic calendar is pretty full, but we have some openings, so if your company hasn’t decided on a date yet, if you give us a call first we can see if our date choices match.
We even had a crew training this year and it was nice to see our teenage help learning what they would be doing at events after a 2 year break in this training. We have them help us set up an inflatable, then take down an inflatable. They also practice setting up and learning our carnival games.
If you have a fully staffed company picnic, all you and your employees need to do is show up and enjoy the fun. We also offer partially staffed events, where you would also need some volunteers to run a few things. Alternatively we can also just drop off equipment and you can run and set up everything yourself. Just so you are aware, we do have certain equipment that can not go out without our staff.
We have a warehouse full of prizes and employees with years of prize experience. They can match your carnival games to prizes and know how many prizes you’ll need based on your attendance and event length. It’s always great to see smiling kids with prizes they won playing games!
Inflatables – we have simple bounce houses and complex electronic challenge inflatables. We can keep small children entertained and adults entertained. We’ve learned over the years, you can age, but you don’t have to grow up and you can still enjoy a challenge, be it racing your coworkers, or children through a bounce house or trying to win a score based challenge.
Give us a call today to see what can do for you!
We all know the saying “April showers bring May flowers”. But it seems like we have had some winter sprinkled into our April here in Michigan too! Hopefully, May will bring Spring as many schools have upcoming end of year carnivals, fun fairs, or field day fun planned. Plus High Schools will have Prom and Senior Send Off events. Many schools use these as fundraisers which is why If a school uses our services for both their end of year fun (or winter time fun) and our Santa’s Secret Shop®/Holiday Gift Shop® program they receive a discount on rental items! We here at Fun Services enjoy getting to know our Elementary PTO/PTA moms and dads as they plan events or gift shops with our family owned company. We have a prize expert on hand to help you with all your prize needs for any end of year fun you have planned! We can even custom build goodie bags for your students to fit your budget. Just give us a call and see what we can do for you. We bring the FUN, but we also make it EASY on you to plan the FUN.
It’s also beneficial to plan ahead for your upcoming school calendar year and get signed up for the Original Santa’s Secret Shop® or Holiday Gift Shop®. Haven’t used us before? Check out the locally owned difference, we can send your school a sample bag of gifts, or we can showcase them in a presentation at your next PTO/PTA meeting. We know it seems wild to plan ahead for a November or December gift shop, but the end of the school year is sneaky and often feels like it happened overnight. Summertime is often a hard time to have full PTO meetings, so making a decision early checks a box off your parent groups fall planning checklist. We here at Fun Services have been planning for the upcoming Gift Shop season since the last season ended. Many of our gifts have been purchased and we love them, and know you will too!
We are looking forward to warmer weather, and hopefully Michigan can comply so we can see many happy smiling faces at upcoming School Carnivals, Fun Fairs and Field Days!
