  4. Add the gift budget
  5. Add an invitation message for the group

  7. Each person can set up a ‘wish list’ of gifts they’d like to receive within the budget, which is available for everyone else to see.


Once the participants get their link, they will see the name of the person they need to buy for along with a ‘wish list’ that each person can set for themselves, full of ideas. It really is a great site which sorts out all the admin in Secret Santa, and will make your life as the lead organiser much easier! You’re welcome!!
