For many years we have had awkward and not always effective ways of drawing names for our large extended family’s Secret Santa gift giving rituals.

This year we are trying Elfster.  You may already know of it.  According to Wikipedia, it was created by Peter Imburg in 2004.  They say it’s “a social networking website for wishlists and gift-giving, and a free online organizer for “secret Santa” style gift exchanges.”

 What’s nice about it is it’s so easy!  With family at both ends of the country and in Australia, it certainly makes the pairing easier.  You also have options to create a gift suggestion list and to indicate which participants should not be paired with each other.  There is limited but relevant advertising.
