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.
