Secret santa SMS allows you to create a secret santa group by selecting contacts from your phone.
A SMS is sent (using your SMS program) to all participants letting them know who they were assigned and how much they should spend.
SPOILER ALERT : You will be able to see the SMSs in your sent SMS history so have someone delete all your messages except your one if you do not want to see allocations.
You can also quickly select yourself using the "Add Yourself" button. You can also use this button for manual entries.
The message sent is short and simple and contains no links.
