    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.

                Electronic Gift Certificates

                Arrive within hours
                Can be sent to multiple addresses
                Can be sent as an e-mail or an e-card
