Secret Santa mess up

So I'm organising secret santa at work this year and I have messed up confused

I asked everyone if they wanted to be in it and also if they wanted to go to the work Christmas meal and got the replies back but one girl was off for a while for bereavement and when she got back she said she couldn't go to the meal and I thought she said she wouldn't be in the secret santa as we usually do it at the meal.

Anyway everyone got their names and have started buying their presents but she has now said she thought she was in the secret santa.

What do I do???

Give her the person you’ve got and you buy a gift for her. Would that work?

Yes, that could work, why didn't I think of that grin

smile phew, I do think that when you have the stress of organising these it can be hard sometimes to see the easy answer - everything else around organising secret Santa is so complicated! Pleased there’s an easy solution for you!
Now you can get back to the stress of who will sit where at the xmas meal ..... grin
