  2. Organizing a Gift Exchange

Do I have to participate in the Gift Exchange?

Organizers are automatically included in each Gift Exchange. They can choose to just organize the fun and not participate.

Organizers are automatically included in each Gift Exchange.

If you want to just organize and not be included in the draw, select the "No, I'm just organizing the fun"  under Are you participating? when you create the Gift Exchange.

Some of the reasons you might organize, but not participate in a Secret Santa Gift Exchange would be:

  • You are organizing a Secret Santa Gift Exchange among children; cousins for example.

  • You are organizing a Secret Santa Gift Exchange at work for a different department.

  • You are organizing a Secret Santa Gift Exchange for an online group.

Changing Your RSVP on the website on Laptop, Desktop or Mobile Device

If you are participating and want to change to only organizing or vice versa you can change your RSVP on the left-hand side of the Gift Exchange homepage under the dashboard.

Changing Your RSVP in the iOS or Android Apps

The Organizer change feature is not yet available in the iOS and Android apps. That means you'll need to head over our website. You can do this in the Elfster app by tapping the three bars in the upper left-hand corner. Then tap “Go to Website”. Login to the website and you’re there. Simple as that! 💫
