redditgifts.com is a giant online gift exchange that started connecting internet stranger-friends around the world with one another in 2009. Last year 89,421 people worldwide participated in Secret Santa 2013.
Think about that for a second: 89,421 internet strangers from 160 different countries put their faith in one another and sent gifts around the world. Pretty awesome, right?
Participating is easy. It only takes a few minutes to sign up and create a profile. Once you do, you wait until matching day, when we run a big program that matches each person to someone else in a giant daisy chain. You’ll be given a person’s username, and you can stalk that person (in a friendly way) to find the perfect gift for them and mail it off. Someone else will be doing the same for you, and when you get it, you can post photos of your awesome gift online so we can all celebrate together.
