E-Secret Santa

Do you and your family, friends, or co-workers participate in a Secret Santa gift exchange each year? Online Secret Santa sites like Elfster are making name drawing easier than ever. Picking paper slips out of a hat is so 2012.


With these online Secret Santa generators, you can put in your name and email address to register for your Secret Santa exchange, and with the click of a mouse you’re automatically given the name of someone else in your exchange to get a gift for! Some sites are very simple, and only used for name generators, like http://secretsantagenerator.net. Others, like Elfster, let you not only draw the name of a friend or colleague, but you can curate your own wishlist and view the wishlist of the person you picked. You can even anonymously ask questions about that person’s tastes, if you don’t know them very well or want to pick an extra-personal gift. You can even set a spending limit on your gift exchange all from within the website! Secret Santa exchanges have never been easier, and now there’s no need to worry about buying or receiving a crappy gift at a Yankee swap. All the legwork is done for you on sites like these; all you have to do is assemble your virtual wishlist.

EvesAddiction.com is the perfect resource for generating a Secret Santa wishlist, as you can link straight to products and also shop gifts by price range for an even more simplified shopping experience.

Will you try an E-Secret Santa exchange this year?

Must Make Recipe Alert: Italian-Sausage Burgers with Garlicky Spinach

O, Oprah…how I love your website and EVERYTHING on it. Especially these:

Servings: Serves 4
  • 10 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil , plus more for brushing
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 tsp. anchovy paste (optional)
  • Salt
  • 1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausages (or a combination of both), casings removed
  • 4 slices of provolone cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried-tomato pesto
  • 4 round ciabatta rolls , split and toasted
Total time: 30 minutesIn a large skillet, bring 1/4 inch of water to a boil. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 1 minute; drain and press out as much water as possible. Wipe out the skillet.In the same skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering. Add the garlic and anchovy paste and cook over high heat, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the spinach, season with salt and stir just until coated, about 10 seconds.

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Using slightly moistened hands, form the sausage meat into four 4-inch patties, about 3/4 inch thick. Brush the burgers with oil and grill over moderate heat until browned and crusty on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip the burgers. Top with the cheese and grill until the burgers are cooked through and the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes longer. Spread the pesto on the rolls. Top with the burgers and spinach and serve.

Wine Pairing: Italian sausage needs a robust red wine like Zinfandel. Coincidentally, superstar Zinfandel producer Peter Seghesio and his family make their own Italian sausage every year to give as holiday gifts. Look for his basic 2008 Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel or the single-vineyard 2008 Seghesio Home Ranch bottling.
