How to organise a Secret Santa?

Make your teammembers ready for Secret Santa by spreading the word that he is in town.
Write a message in your Yahoo-group (or other) so people can sign up.
Collect all the names in a database in Yahoo (or other). Here is an example:
Send off the questionnaire to all participants. Convo me if you want to have an example of a questionnaire.
Mark all the received questionnaires in your database so that you know that everybody returned their questionnaire.
Match the participants according to the questionnaire. Try to find the perfect match so people will be happy and content.
Send off the questionnaire of the participant to his/her Secret Santa & mark it in your database so that people can see if they have received their name.
Make people let you know when they send and received their gift and mark that in the database.
Result: much joy and happy faces when they open their gifts! :)
