Frequently asked questions
- How do I organize a Secret Santa?
In three simple steps:
- Enter the names of all participants
- Set up any exclusions (optional)
- Send the link to all participants.
- Can I set up exclusions?
Yes. By setting up exclusions, you can prevent a participant from drawing a specific name. This is a useful feature if e.g. partners should not be able to draw each other.
You can create one-way exclusions and two-way (mutual) exclusions. Here are some examples:
- Alice cannot draw Bob. (One-way exclusion.)
- Bob cannot draw Charlie and vice versa. (Two-way exclusion.)
Setting up exclusions is completely optional.
- How do the drawn names get sent?
The organizer of the Secret Santa sends a link to all participants. The link can be sent in a variety of ways, such as chat (WhatsApp) and email.
When a participant clicks the link, they will need to verify who they are by providing their email address. After that they can view their drawn name.
- Do participants need an email address?
- Yes, every participant needs an email address. They will need it to verify who they are, in order to view their drawn name.
- Can participants create a wishlist?
Yes. When viewing their drawn name, participants will have the option to create a wishlist.
The participant's Secret Santa will be able to view their wishlist automatically.
Creating a wishlist is completely optional.
