"I love DrawNames. It makes Secret Santa so easy to do. I like the exclusion feature that allows certain people to not be able to draw certain names. Just great! Thank you!"


"Our office is small and this site helped us have a wonderful Secret Santa experience. We will be using you next year!"


"Love this site! It'll be great if you can have this for many holidays :) We did it for Valentine's Day and it was a blast."


"A coworker used this service at work. I was so pleased that i used it with my family. We enjoyed the process and I will definitely use drawnames next year!"


"No suggestions...Drawnames is AWESOME! I even bragged about your site on my facebook page!"


"The service has met all of our staff's needs fantastically - we used to use a hat passed around the office, and this is so much simpler. Thank you for creating it and making our Christmas gift giving experience vastly more enjoyable!"


"This was the first holiday season where we were literally scattered across the country. We knew we weren't all going to be in one place for Christmas as we had been in previous years. This was the perfect way to continue our Secret Santa tradition. We had loads of fun, thank you."


"We love the service and will definitely be back. We especially liked the ability to ask anonymously for gift lists."


"I greatly appreciate this site and uniting my Marine Corps sisters for the last two years for our Secret Santa. My family of cousins use this site as well."


"This Web site has made our family's secret Santa exchange easier than ever. Things I love about the service: 1. Ability to create exclusions so certain people can't draw each other. 2. Ability to create automatic exclusions based on previous years, so no one draws the same name two years in a row. 3. Wish list feature. 4. Ability to send anonymous messages to ask questions about wish lists. Please don't change a thing! We love Drawnames.ca!"


"It's was a great tool for our family that is spread out over the country to try the secret santa when we only come together on Christmas Day. It worked great, was nicely designed for easy use. Completely foolproof for the young and old that participated and the secret was safe! We will be regular users for sure!"


"Thank you for another successful year of grab bag draws! Worked perfectly. Loved the new option to provide list of drawn names. That helps so much to track down any missing gifts!"


"Very pleased with the service, ease of use, and overall functionality. Had all the elements covered including set up, notifications to administrator, ability to restrict certain matches, the wish list feature, and follow-up emails to group participants etc. Exactly what I was loking for a random gift draw. Thanks."


"I absolutely love your website :) I use it for every gathering, Christmas, mothers group, birthdays....and also the new link you have created makes it very easy to use."


"We LOVED the website: that we didn't have to log in, that the website took care of exclusions (I wouldn't draw my husband, etc.), and that wish lists were so easy to update. Even the non-tech people in my family found it easy to use. Thank you!!"


"Great service! I was able to join my family's secrets Santa group from another continent! Now going home for Christmas will be a great surprise! I even used the page for my friends' gift exchange :) Tusen takk!!"


"Your service is great - I really like the fact that from year to year, no one draws the same name they had the previous year. It's also easy to input and update a gift list, add a name, delete a name and so on. It is the easiest way to set up a Secret Santa that I've ever used!"


"This is my 3rd or 4th time using DrawNames and it continues to be a success. I love how I can be the organizer of a gift exchange and also participate using this service!"


"Thank you! Your easy-to-use site has made the holidays so much easier!"


"What a way cool idea! It's seamless. It's flawless. It's way cool."


"I love DrawNames!!! I found you a few years ago and have been using it for our family Christmas exchange ever since. We used to do the names on the slips of paper but that required everyone being in the same room. With relatives out of town, that wasn't always feasible. This is so much easier and the gift list is just perfect. You thought of everything...from the exclusions options to the anonymous question capability. We will be using for years to come. Thank you for a wonderful, easy and fun service!!!"


"I think it was a great website, well set out and had lots of options! The secret santa all went smoothly and was great!"


"Amazing website! So much easier than a piece of paper, a pen & a hat and everyone to physically be there to pick a name; especially when you have family and friends that live further away and barely see each other."


"Perfect. Very responsive. It anticipated most problems I had (loss of emails, including people, changing dates, excluding some persons to be drawed by others). Hands down, I will use it again."


"It was awesome. Even the grandparents could use it."


"The service is great. No delays encountered. The concept is modern yet very handy, user friendly and efficient. Kudos"


"I love DrawNames! It's made the holidays so much easier! My friends and family love it so we use it every year now. Keep it up!"


"Great website! Have used it multiple times and its ease of use makes it possible to get the older generation involved."


"Awesome site. Made our companies gift exchange so easy & stress free. Great job!!!"


"Awesome! It was a fun way to pick names and so convenient and simple!"


"This was very useful. We always draw names and now some of the family lives out of the country, so I am so grateful for the site."


"It's really useful especially for large groups who can’t possibly meet up to physically draw lots!"
