Who Buys 4 Whom PLUS is a name-drawing app that makes it easy to create and manage annual gifting events like "Secret Santa." It can maintain data for up to 10 different yearly occasions, each up to 100 participants. Drawings are completely randomized and allow a number of options for excluding undesirable pairings. Once a satisfactory list is drawn, personalized emails can be automatically sent to all participants. Drawing histories are saved for each occasion, making it easy to view pairing histories for any year or any participant. For a free demo, download Who Buys 4 Whom FREE (limited to 1 yearly occasion and 5 participants).
