The End of Gift Anxiety

What gift anxiety, you ask?

Hoping you picked right, fearing you picked wrong

Faking delight when opening an unwanted gift

Settling for a gift card and feeling like a failure

Dreading the hassle of receipts and returns

Forgetting every gift hint from the past few months

Disappointment when you give a gift they already have

End Gift Anxiety start Giftster

Secret Santa power

Ask Giftster to draw names for a gift exchange

When you want to have a "name” to buy for, Giftster turns up the secrecy and keeps surprises. The Secret Santa Draw generator works with your group, lets you exclude matches, publish your rules, reuse last year's exclusions, and then Jolly (shown at left) picks the names. Fun and easy.
