If you're the type to throw a big, festive Martha-Stewart-worthy holiday party, you've already probably planned a gift exchange. A lot of people are playing the klepto-favorite White Elephant exchange just because it doesn't involve much forward planning, but the game can get vicious sometimes. So to make everybody happier in the long run (including yourself, you little party planner), bring in a bit of technology in the form of thinkSecretSanta.com, a Secret Santa organizer that keeps everyone up to speed and makes sure that you are just as clueless as everybody else and can play along...
Enter the name and email of each person involved in the Secret Santa at thinkSecretSanta.com, and the site does the rest.
It selects a giftee for each gifter and lets them know. Each person involved has the option to add a profile, to give a clue as to what they'd like, and the site will even send out reminder emails.
There's no limit on the number of participants, so this could definitely help out an office that is usually too big to get in on the $10-$15 crappy gifting party.
