Apple's App Store has a number of applications that can be used to assign the pairings for the gift exchange.
With the Christmas holidays approaching, which is one month away, users have begun to plan the purchase of gifts for their friends and family. Also, as usual, some groups of people have organized to play Secret Santa or Invisible Santa and exchange gifts.
Although organizing a sharing with a few people is easy, when it comes to groups larger ones, where 10 or 15 people are involved at the same time, this process can be complicated. However, there are technological solutions in order to have a positive experience and keep a secret who was assigned.
Here are some applications available in the App Store to be able to organize this activity:
