New: The DrawNames app
Make your gift exchange easy with the free DrawNames Secret Santa app. Download the Secret Santa app and organize your gift exchange with exclusions and wish lists. No ads, and no registration required.
How does it work?
Enter the names
Enter the names of people to organize your Secret Santa with. You still can add names or delete them after you confirm the group.
Add exclusions and group details
If there are enough group members, you can make exclusions: who shouldn’t draw whom. You can also add details like a group name and the date of the celebration.
Send out the invitations
You need to send out the invitations as soon as the group has been created. You can do this via email, text message, WhatsApp or other social media.
Make your wish list
Don’t keep your Secret Santa guessing! Make a wish list of the gifts you’d like. Did you know that you can also set up a group just to share wish lists?
Draw the names
Now it’s also possible to watch the drawing live, so that everyone sees whose name they’ve drawn at the same time.
