How do I create a group?

Groups let you organize your friends and family outside of Gift Exchanges and allow you to quickly invite the same people any time you have a Gift Exchange.

Within a group, you can follow Wish Lists, see when birthdays will be happening, share posts, and begin Gift Exchanges. These groups can be used over and over for as many awesome Gift Exchanges as you'd like! 

To create a Group without starting a Gift Exchange:

  1. Scroll down to the Groups section on your homepage.
  2. Click on + Start A Group at the bottom of the Elfster homepage.
    1. You will be prompted to name your group.
    2. From there you can either "Start A Gift Exchange" or just complete creating the group by clicking "Skip Exchange." 

Elf Tip: ✨ Groups will be automatically created when you begin a Gift Exchange, and anyone who accepts the invitation to the Gift Exchange will be placed in the group, so if you're planning to organize a Gift Exchange, start with the Secret Santa Generator to save a step.
