Logged in, but Still Can't Find Your Draw Name? 

Don't fret! Have yourself a cookie 🍪 and try the following. If needed, our helper elves will have your back!

Your organizer also has the option to re-send your email link to the Gift Exchange! Reach out to them if you need help getting back in.

⚠️ If the link in your Draw email isn't working correctly, your account may not be completely registered.  Reach out to our helper elves, so they can work their ✨ elf magic✨ and help you find your draw.

⚠️ If you don't see the Gift Exchange in your account, you may have accidentally created a second account. Please contact our Helper Elves for assistance

If names in your exchange have been drawn, but you haven't been given a name, you may have joined after the draw date. Please contact your Organizer to see if they plan to draw names among latecomers.
