Drawing names has never been so much fun and it's even completely free.
It is also possible to send Invitations via WhatsApp.
With or without pretty Wish List, you decide.
It's always a surprise who will draw your name :-)
Secret Santa in 2 steps
Start your Secret Santa
Who are participating? Can everyone draw each other, or do you want to exclude partners from each other, for example? Enter some more information about the event, such as date and budget and you're done.
Send drawn names
Decide for yourself how you want to send the drawn names. This can be done directly by e-mail. But also by WhatsApp or a link that you can share, with the advantage that you do not have to collect all e-mail addresses first.
Create Wish List
As a participant you can make your own pretty Wish List (optional).
Enter the names of the participants including yourself.
Setup exclusions 'Who is not allowed to draw which name?' (not required)
You provide details about the event, such as name and budget.
After these steps, the names will be drawn immediately. You can then choose how you want to send the drawn names to the participants: via email, WhatsApp or via a link.
Secret Santa via WhatsApp, how does it work?
Participants are asked (via a link) for their name and e-mail address, where the drawn name is sent directly. The advantage is that you do not have to collect all e-mail addresses first.
How are drawn names sent?
There are 2 options:
You can choose to send the names drawn directly to the participants via email. You do need to know the email addresses of participants.
You can share a link (for example via WhatsApp). In this case, participants will be asked for their name and email address, where the name drawn will be sent directly to.
Can I add or remove participants afterwards?
Yes, you can if you are the event organizer.
Go to your drawn name and under 'Manage party' choose 'Add participant' or 'Remove participant.
Do participants need an account?
That's not necessary. Both the organizer and participants do not need to have an account to participate in Secret Santa.
You do need an account to make a Wish List, but that's done in no time.
What is the advantage of an account?
An account is not required, but it does have advantages:
You can create a Wish List that is linked to your drawn name, and the person who has drawn your name will be notified immediately.
You will never lose your drawn name because it is linked to your account. You simply navigate to 'Wish Lists & Drawn Names'.
You can create wish lists all year round!
Can participants create a Wish List?
You can! When you view your drawn name, you'll see a "Create Wish List" button. Press this button. The moment you make a Wish List, the person with your ticket will be automatically informed. It is not mandatory to make a Wish List.
How does the person who drew my name see that I have a Wish List?
This participant will receive an email as soon as you have made a Wish List (you can do this by pressing the 'Create Wish List' button in your ticket) and it will also be visible to the person who has drawn your name.
