Computers actually do (pseudo-)random extremely well.

Prolly better to wait until everyone is together (or at least enough of you that no-one is going to feel the results were "fixed") and then draw names from a hat.

Three problems:
o It doesn't work: some people will draw themselves.
o You need to do it all twice.
o It still doesn't work: some people will draw themselves and some will have drawn each other.

Print the names on slips of paper and then make a big show of pulling out a name at random. A twist is for the 1st winner to pick the 2nd name and then the 2nd winner picks the 3rd slip.

There are no "winners" here: everyone is both a winner and a loser.
