Can’t Gather in Person? Make it a Virtual Gift Exchange

If some of your besties don’t live in the same city as you – no problem – this is where a virtual Friendsgiving can keep you connected. Elfster makes it easy to send invites, pair names, create wishlists and ask anonymous questions. All you need to do is add a Zoom link for your friends to connect. Whether it’s in person or virtual, be grateful for the moments you share.
