Secret Santa this year?

Recommended Posts

I haven't read through everything yet so I don't know if this has been mentioned at all, but what if only one person is given ALL the addresses (the same person who picks the SS's) and then they just distribute the addresses accordingly. Then at max only 2 people will ever have to see it.

 

Really though, I trust all of you so I don't care who sees it...

I am in too!

 

Every year 10 of my girlfriends do SS and then we have a cocktail party to exchange gifts - it is aweome!

 

Last year we used EVITE because they have a 'gift exchange' feature where it randomly distributes name assignments to everyone who replies YES by a certain time - this doesn't solve the address issue but could possibly solve the issue of who gets to pick the names?

My SIL's family does a SS every year and they started using this website to organize it:

"Elfster is a free, web based tool that makes it easy to arrange Secret Santa gift exchanges. A Secret Santa gift exchange is a great way for large families to simplify and economize during the holidays. It is also a fun, low cost way for co-workers or friends to share the spirit of the holiday season."

I completly agree. I think anytime we have something like this that goes on, there is always some people that either don't send the gift or whatever. I think is someone is going to commit, they NEED to be sure they can send the gift by the deadline.

You can order online gift cards from Amazon and some other sites. The recipient receives their gift via email so a physical address is not needed. FH got one from someone at work recently.

Arrive within hours

Can be sent to multiple addresses

Can be sent as an e-mail or an e-card

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
