How to use DrawNames

It’s easy to make a wish list using the gift finder

Draw names for your Secret Santa or make a wish list group without drawing names. You can find the most popular gifts for men and women in our gift finder.

New: The DrawNames App

Make your gift exchange easy with the free DrawNames Secret Santa app. Download the Secret Santa app and organise 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 organise your Secret Santa with. You can still 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 the invitations

You need to send the invitations as soon as the group has been created. You can do this via email, 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 draw live, so that everyone sees whose name they’ve drawn at the same time.

Draw names for all occasions

Halloween secret santa

The night of October 31st is a time to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating or celebrate at Halloween parties.

The website is fantastic, it made it extremely easy for me to organise Secret Santa for my friends. I like the reminders sent via email too. I have no suggestions! Thank you.

Our Secret Santa was a huge success and everyone raved at how easy it was organising and communicating with everyone who had an email address. We will definitely be using this for next year and a number of our group are also keen to use it at their places of work. I've go bugger all to add and why tinker with something that works. You guys rock!

This worked perfectly. It was easy to use and we all had fun with it. Thanks. We'll be using again next year :)
