My Go-to Christmas App

Elfster makes my favorite game of the season - Secret Santa - easy and fun for everyone involved. They’ve thought of every possible problem, and SOLVED IT. Long distance isn’t a problem, late joiners are easily accommodated, communicating with other players is anonymous, and adding great items to your wishlist couldn’t be easier. I also love that Elfster works online and in the app, with all capabilities available on both platforms. I’ve never used another secret Santa app and I never plan to - Elfster has it all and I can’t recommend it enough.

Family exchange

Our family started using several years ago. It is now a tradition for the adults to use to pick a gift for the selection they got for the year. It is also great for the kids gifts they are wishing for their children to receive.

Love Elfster...just not the app

My family has been using Elfster for Christmas for many years. We all love it. The app can use some TLC. I downloaded it for quick access but it’s not working the way the site does. I have two child accounts set up and it only gives me access to one. Also, my wishlist is showing me the items that have been purchased from it. So now I know exactly what I’m getting for Christmas. Luckily, I’m emotionally mature and my husband needs all the help he can get for holiday shopping. Otherwise, this may have ruined Christmas!! Definitely removing the app and logging in direct to site moving forward.

The app should not be showing you the items purchased for you. We'd really appreciate if you'd send us a screenshot of what you're seeing to help@elfster.com so we can look into this further.
