White elephant gift exchange invitations

No matter what kind of gift exchange plans you have up your sleeve, there’s an invitation here to help you set the vibe. Are you going for a funny and laid back white elephant or Yankee Swap party? Opt for a white elephant invitation that invites guests to bring a gag gift of their choosing.

Secret Santa invitations

If you prefer more meaningful gifts, consider hosting a Secret Santa. You'll find plenty of designs with everyone’s favorite red-suited, white-bearded Christmas character. For a more elegant evening, there are holiday invitations with gifts, Christmas trees, ribbons, and bows. Planning an ornament exchange party? We’ve got tree-mendous designs adorned with traditional holiday decorations. For a yummier twist on the gift exchange trend, how about hosting a cookie swap party?

How to send a gift exchange party invite

Once you find your ideal design, use our easy online design tool to customize it to your liking. Choose the fonts and text colors that best suit your theme. Spread a little extra holiday cheer with custom extras like a backdrop, envelope, and envelope liner. Be sure to add important details like when and where your event is taking place, as well as what type of event it is. For the gift-giving novices, you’ll want to be sure to explain the rules of a white elephant, yankee swap, or Secret Santa gift exchange.

Then, either reuse a previous guest list or upload your contacts before sending your digital invitation. Our convenient RSVP tracking means we stay on top of the guest list for you, keeping tabs on who’s going and who’s not, while you get busy with your own holiday shopping. Need to send a reminder? Simply use our guest messaging.

What to write in your gift exchange invitations

It’s important to be detailed in any gift exchange party invitation. You’ll want to let guests know how much a gift should cost and whether there's a gift theme. For Secret Santa invites, tell guests that they must RSVP in order to be included in the name drawing and that you’ll share their assigned name through the guest messaging feature.

You can also request that guests follow a dress code, like ugly sweaters or cocktail attire. If you're going to be serving dinner or just snacks and drinks, include that, too, so that guests know how hungry to be upon arrival.
