How to use DrawNames

It’s easy to make a wish list using the gift finder

Draw names for your Secret Santa or make a wish list group without drawing names. You can find the most popular gifts for men and women in our gift finder.

Organize your Secret Santa celebration touchless

Would you prefer to keep your distance this year? Now you can draw the names for your Secret Santa gift exchange live during a video call. You can also provide mailing addresses to send each other gifts.

How does it work?

Enter the names

Enter the names of people to organize your Secret Santa with. You still can add names or delete them after you confirm the group.

Add exclusions and group details

If there are enough group members, you can make exclusions: who shouldn’t draw whom. You can also add details like a group name and the date of the celebration.

Send out the invitations

You need to send out the invitations as soon as the group has been created. You can do this via email, text message, WhatsApp or other social media.

Make your wish list

Don’t keep your Secret Santa guessing! Make a wish list of the gifts you’d like. Did you know that you can also set up a group just to share wish lists?

Draw the names

Now it’s also possible to watch the drawing live, so that everyone sees whose name they’ve drawn at the same time.

New Years secret santa

Time to celebrate the past year and ring in the new with fun, fireworks, champagne and loved ones.

I enjoyed using your service - it made Secret Santa so easy, without spoiling the surprise for anyone! Thanks to you and your team for the brilliant work. Happy holidays!


Honestly, this service is amazing. Draw Names makes my life so much easier. I can focus on the party itself rather than chasing down Secret Santa’s and providing gift ideas. The Wish Lists, anonymous questions and reminder emails are helpful without being overbearing. Keep up the great work!


My only suggestion would be to not change anything to the way it is, it was very easy to use, instructions were very straightforward, it's a great stress relieved as it is all done for you, and it is all done in a way that it really add suspense to it. Thank you very much for this useful tool!
