    When you've got more than 10 friends or co-workers to organize for the gift exchange, you need the most functional secret Santa generators out there. Enjoy Christmas from near or far with the right technology.

    My wife and I used this app for our secret Santa and it made things so easy. It let's you add blocks so people can't get certain people. We paid the $4 for premium and it went very smoothly. Everyone got their text message and was able to confirm and knows their secret santa. You can also add items on to your wish list from other websites and it's fairly simple. Will be using this app again.
  • Any way to not avoid getting someone that is in list? Dec 10, 2018

    By Ambar S.
    Hi. I purchased the premium and I would like to know if there is a way to avoid getting my husband who is on the same list. I am doing this with my cousins and many of them are siblings therefore, elfster gives option but if your company has this it would be amazingly convenient. Phone numbers and ability to avoid who gets who. Please tell me that you have this feature? It’s the only reason I purchased. If not, I would like a refund.
  • Very cool! Dec 6, 2019

    By CAGUYD25
    Nice app! I do have one question, if I wrote the wrong number and I later edited that number and resent, will that person with the correct number get the same person who was sent to the mistaken number? I want to make sure that everyone got different people even after I fixed the number and resent.

    This is the best ome so far. But u do need to pay 3 dollars but it does its job perfectly. I payed with google rewards so it costed me nothing. Google payed. If u wanna, install google surveys and u get payed for answering serveys. Thats how i got this app for free. Just answered some surveys and thats it.
  • Definitely one of the best Nov 15, 2018

    This is definitely one of the best I've used in a while.. As an organizer of many groups I needed this.... I wasn't even mad when they snuck that 2.99 in on me..... But I feel some type of way that you actually charged me 3.99....
  • Issues with mobile numbers/email Dec 3, 2018

    By pockey09
    Having to send to emails after using mobile numbers with some users I am having to resend a few times before they receive it. Some still have not received an email or a text message with their person. If they never receive their person how am I supposed to continue?
  • New features Dec 6, 2020

    By HannahSR96
    Have used this app in the past and I really like the new features of blocking people from getting certain people in list.
  • Great but not perfect. Nov 26, 2018

    By Bboyvao
    Idea is great and it’s easy to use but with lots of bugs. When texting everyone, about half didn’t get the text. The link to verify doesn’t work for some. I had to resend it as an email. Plus I can’t simply see who all has what so I can text my family back when it doesn’t work. Not worth $2.99. More like $.99.
  • Great App! Nov 29, 2018

    By kariuli
    It’s a great app to do secret Santa with your family when you can’t all gather. Just put in the names and phone numbers and sent out the text message of who your Secret Santa is. Worth paying the $2.99 for full access!

    Great app! Made it so easy to do secret santa. It was worth paying for. Would give 5 stars but.... one thing that would be great is the ability to copy a list instead of having to set it all up again. Hope you take this on board.

    In order to use phone numbers instead of email addresses, you have to purchase "premium access". Phone numbers are simpler for us, so we'll just have to use another app.

    After paying for this app I would at least expect it to work! More than half my group did not receive a message with their secret Santa pick. Ugh, frustrated
  • If only I read reviews prior Dec 3, 2019

    By stw10
    After making a list it will charge you 3.99 for using the phone number selection. No bid deal if it was worth it.... but totally not. After people verify that’s it... the download app and see nothing. It even tells me I haven’t been included in a list and I’m the one who made it! So pretty much you pay for the random selection and a group text. The app has nothing to it.

    Don't use! Generator can assign someone to gift themself...a waste of time to gamble whether it will all work out or require multiple tries.

    Rubbish. You have to pay if you want to use phone numbers or you have more than 5 people. 2.99 for something other apps do for free.

    Required payment for text messages and after payment was made it still didnt work.
  • It has one function Nov 28, 2019

    By kashudbrbdk
    I bought the premium version of the app because of how many people are on the secret Santa list. Well two people got the same person, thankfully we realized because those two are married and of course told each other who they received. I asked for a refund and was told because I have an Apple phone that they couldn’t do that. Useless.
  • Do not bother paying for this app Dec 5, 2019

    By OHM2020
    The paid app failed to deliver most of my messages saying the carriers rejected them. I tried using both email addresses and cell phone numbers and in both instances it did not work. I had to manually share the link for every participant, at which point the app was rendered no more useful than other free secret santa apps out there. Stay away.

    This is a great app.... I didn’t mind paying the $2.99. A little to figure out, but it is cool once you get out. I find it a little hard to add a wishlist though.... please help 😩
  • Not sending the text Nov 7, 2019

    I’ve tried to send out the text two times and didn’t receive them.

    Great app. Would have given it 5 stars but some people did not receive their text and there is no way of resending the list. Fix this issue and it’s an easy 5 Star app.

    I sent the link to my family but some of the recipients did not get a name, they got a screen that says list sent cannot add anymore users? I set up the app but it is not showing a list made so I cannot resend a link, what can I do?

    By Kaylene-Anne Christensen
    The idea of this app is great. I ended up buying the premium so that we could send the secret santa messages via sms and to more than 6 people. Paid for the premium and the sms's were never sent, I ended up having to individually send a link to each person. Which defeats the point of me buying premium to make my life easier. Sent an email asking for help and never got a reply. If you're able to use the free version then it's great, if you need to buy premium then I wouldn't recommend it.

    Awful. Doesn't load mobile numbers properly from contacts so had to manually check them all. Then when I went to send the list it let me know premium access was required for more than 6 names and I would be charged. Had I had know this from the start I wouldn't have bothered ensuring the names and numbers were correctly loaded. Do not use!
