Too soon? Never! Secret Santa is arguably one of the best Christmas traditions, but if your friends aren't meeting in advance to pick a name out of a hat, get help from a tool that promises to keep the names a secret. Here are the best ones on the web.
- Secret Santa Random Name Generator selects names for a Secret Santa group and automatically sends participants an email. All you need to share are email addresses, the number of presents for each participant, and names of the participants.
- Sneaky Santa delivers more than a cute name. The site lets you virtually draw names for your group, set up gift rules, and send an anonymous message to the participants. The design is a little old school, but you can customise your site with a picture.
- Draw Names saves group information, so you can draw from the same group of people again and again. There is also an option to input your wish list and view the wish list of the person you've selected.
- Elfster is a quick and easy way to manage your Secret Santa and it'll send reminders to people who're likely to forget gift-giving deadlines.
- Prezzybox Secret Santa will not only help you organise all participants, it also makes recommendations from its own online shop, making it a great solution if you're shopping for people you don't know very well.
