About this app

Hohoho ... 🎅 Christmas is coming soon. 🎄

To help you get away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas, this app will help making things easy for you!
With this app you can easily make a Secret Santa lottery to randomly choose who gives a present to whom.
This app can be used both while sitting comfortably with friends and family, as well as online via e-mail or various messengers.

Secret Santa is a Christmas tradition also known as Wichteln, Kris Kringle, Chris Kindle (Christkindl), Amigo Secreto, Monito-Monita, Angelito, Julklapp, or Engerl-Bengerl.

Especially in times like this, you don't necessarily have to meet in person, to make your yearly Secret-Santa drawing. Keep the social distance and also stay connected with your friends and family.

Take a look at our app features:

✔ Local-Secret-Santa:
The lottery drawing takes place while everyone involved is present. Those who are not present get their results by e-mail.

✔ Online-Secret-Santa:
all Secret-Santa's get their results by mail.

✔ Intelligent random generator
The intelligent random number generator prevents you from drawing yourself and enables the determination of Anti-Secret-Santa's.

✔ Anti-Secret-Santa's:
You can make sure not to be matched with a certain person by assigning a Secret-Santa an Anti-Secret-Santa (handy for couples or also last year’s Secret-Santa)

✔ The app can be used completely without registration.

✔ In the app several different groups can be created.

✔ Optionally the results can be sent by mail or shared by various messengers or SMS.

✔ You can add your wishes to give your Secret-Santa a hint.

✔ Furthermore, to each group additional information (like the event date or the budget) can be added.

Have fun!

This is the only app I tried, but based on a few reviews is why I chose it. It does exactly what it advertises and it seems to do it flawlessly. I first tsed in on 5 different email addresses I have access to and within about 30 seconds it was delivered. I set it up for my family of about 12, most of whom have a significant other and it worked perfectly then too and no one got their own spouse. There's not a ton of bells and whistles, but who needs them for something like this? Nice job devs!

Nice app, but didn't work super great for us because we were trying to draw for our entire family. And you are not able to block more than one person (ie all members of one immediate family). Two families were able to switch though when they both got members of their own families. So we made it work. I agree with one other review that the option to send via text will be a nice option, but email worked well. Overall, a good app.

I can't see anyone else talking about this bug, but the anti-giver scroller won't allow me to select the last person on the list. Everything else seems fine, but I had to use a work around to make it worthwhile at all (This is for the online version) Edit: I appreciate the super quick response and planned debugging.

This bug only appears on very few devices. Edit: We now published the update which fixes this bug, so that the Anti-Secret-Santa selection works as expected. (As a workaround in the old version you can temporarily add a person, then it should be possible to select the person you prefer as anti-giver. After that remove the additional person.)

What's new

Added an option to send the results without any ads.
Some optical improvements (especially on smaller devices).
Further background optimizations.
