Secret Santa is a gift exchange tradition that has its roots in early Christmas traditions. The original ‘Secret Santas’ were the gift-bearing helpers of St. Nick. Today, it’s celebrated as a gift exchange occasion that renews bonds between family and friends, and as a moment to solidify connections between usually busy co-workers – like a Secret Santa office party. Creating a Secret Santa gift exchange means creating a moment of togetherness and delight. There’s always the anticipation of “who will be my Secret Santa?” It’s always a fun surprise!

The DrawNames Secret Santa app is perfect for planning any gift exchange. Let us take care of the sorting, so you can celebrate without a worry. Simply install the app, create a new group, set a budget and invite your family or friends for your gift exchange. Perfect for Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Eid al-Fitr or Galentine's Day.

Really awesome specialized app

Who would think some one would create a Secret Santa App???

This is an awesome app for managing a gift exchange. Just create a name for your celebration, add participants and exclusion rules (ie people is same household cannot draw each others names) and easily send invitations by email, text or whatever. The ability for each person to create their own wish list is just brilliant.

Great job!

Needs log-in support! Can only view drawn name’s wish list - not others!

I was excited when I learned that Draw Names now has an app.

However, there are NECESSARY improvements that are lacking. These features, to my knowledge, are functions of the browser version that I expected would be present in the app.

1. You CANNOT log in … yet. When will this support be added?

2. You can ONLY view the wish list of your drawn name. It was so fun to look at the wish lists of others!

3. Search and details are VERY limited. Not as big a deal if you could add text to a selected item. Might be best to simply use text to specify your item - that is an available feature but not straightforward. See apps Q&A section that they added recently.

This seems like a very premature app rollout.

I really liked using Draw Names in the browser previous years because you could see other peoples lists and see what was bought (expect for your own). Hopefully this can change with an update in the near future.

For now, I will heavily be recommending the browser version if these functions are still allowed.

I’ll edit this review when I am notified that an update has occurred that resolves these issues.

Developer Response ,

We are happy to tell you that it is now possible to log in to the app! However not all of the website options are available in the app, but you can click on ‘Go to the website’ at the bottom of the group page in the app to go to the group website page. All options are available there.
We are planning to add more features like the ones you've mentioned in the future. With your feedback we can keep improving the app.

Can’t use the app on more than one device

I downloaded the app from an invitation I received from my niece. I use my tablet for just about everything since the screen is larger. I went to the store and needed to see what the persons name I drew but can’t access the app. I needed to see their wish list to make sure I was getting something they asked for. I don’t want to have to carry my big tablet into a store. I would rather use my phone which I carry everywhere. It would be nice to be able to use the app across a phone and tablet.

Developer Response ,

If you create an account on DrawNames.com and sign in with that account on both devices you'll be able to access your celebration both on your phone and tablet. If you have any other questions feel free to send them to help@drawnames.com. We'd be happy to help!
