To simplify Christmas gift giving, my three daughters, their spouses, Dick, and I draw names. When we were visiting them in NY and NJ over Thanksgiving, we exchanged gifts. Heather had my name. One of her gifts to me was the most adorable cast iron tree stand molded into a snowflake form. To coordinate with some fun fabric Jessie had given me a few years ago, I spray painted the tree stand a cheery blue.
If you are already drawing names for Christmas gift giving, or are considering it, elfster.com randomly chooses names for you. After setting up a free account and entering the names of those who will be in the Secret Santa gift exchange, the names are randomly drawn for you and each person is notified privately via email. You can even create a wish list.
