|When I managed a shelter we did promote Holiday adoptions, BUT... we didn't allow them as "surprises" and they could be picked up AFTER Christmas (or up to a week before).
We had a special packet with literature, dishes, collar and leash, etc., that parents could give on Christmas day along with a picture of the new pet.
It worked out really well, yet we still had policy in place to refuse those last minute "get a living present" people.
We also encouraged parents to think of the shelter pets while shopping with their kids and as a result, we had a lot of visits with people bringing toys, etc., to the dogs for the holidays.
