Happy Black Friday! Today the Christmas season officially kicks off. And in honor of that, we thought we'd suggest a great website we love to use this time of year.
Growing up, it was always a hassle to get everyone together BEFORE the holidays so we could draw names for Secret Santa gifts. Inevitably, my granny ended up drawing names for everyone and calling our long-distance relatives. Then, she proceeded to tease us all for the next 3 weeks that she knew who everyone's Secret Santa was . . . sound familiar?
Well, thanks to some amazing people, there's a great service available called Elfster. Elfster.com is a super easy way to organize a Secret Santa, whether it's for family, friends, the office, or whoever! Secret Santa participants sign up individually through a group, and then Elfster does the dirty work, matching up participants. You can create wish-lists, tell your Secret Santa about yourself, and even ask your person anonymous questions to determine what they'd like.
Our favorite thing about Elfster: it makes it even easier to be green. No wasting tiny slips of paper drawing names; no buying and shipping lots of gifts all over the country; no returning unwanted presents. Be sure to check out Elfster this season for your Secret Santa gift exchanges!
