Elfster is the group gifting provider that makes it fun and easy to give gifts that people really want, without stressing and wasting time on organizing everyone. Our mission is to revive the tradition of group gifting with an online and mobile platform that anyone, of any skill level, can use to simply share gifts with friends and family.
Since 2003, over 2.5 million people have taken advantage of Elfster’s easy sign-up, automated event-organization, social sharing on Facebook and Twitter, expert gift guidance, and group-powered gifting for free.
We began because of the frustration of trying to organize a Secret Santa gift exchange right after I got married. My wife and I decided to keep life simple by doing a Secret Santa. While the concept seemed great, the reality was quite different. It was really complicated!
It was then I decided to create Elfster: something to make our lives easier and which could put a modern twist on the time honored tradition of Secret Santa gift exchanges and group gift giving.
