The #1 Shopping App in the US – The Christmas List is an easy-to-use app to help you organize your Christmas lists and budget so you can spend less time buying presents for the ones you love and more time being present with the ones you love! _________________________________________ EASY PROGRESS TRACKING Track gifts by to do, purchased, shipping, received, and wrapped. When editing a list you can change the status of multiple gifts at once (for example, when you are wrapping gifts you can change the status of those gifts from purchased to wrapped all at once). EASY BUDGETING Set a budget for a person or don’t – it’s up to you. The Christmas Lists tracks the budget for you. It’s so easy that The Christmas List has been recommended for managing holiday spending by • Good Housekeeping • The Motley Fool • • • CNBC SHOPPING OVERVIEW Simple, at-a-glance views of shopping progress including budget. ADD GIFTS LIKE JOTTING A NOTE Adding a list of gifts is as simple as typing (or even dictating) a note. Just place each gift name on a new line and The Christmas List transforms your note into a gift list. It’s like Christmas Magic! IMPORT FROM YOUR CONTACTS Get a jumpstart on your lists by importing select recipients from your existing contacts. EASY SHARING Easily share lists using AirDrop, email, iCloud Drive, or Messages. Use AirDrop to quickly share a single recipient or an entire group. SHOPPING LISTS BY STORE Once you select a store for a gift, The Christmas List remembers that store and automatically builds a shopping list for the store to help make sure you get everything you need when you are out and about. MULTIPLE GIFT RECIPIENTS Once you create a gift you can copy it to other recipients on your list without the need to retype the details. POPULAR RETAILERS The Christmas List comes with a list of popular retailers, but if you don’t see the one you are looking for you can easily add your own. You can even use emoji in the store name. ADD PHOTOS Add photos for gifts and people from your photo library, clipboard, or camera. CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN See a countdown to the number of shopping days until Christmas right in the app. PRINTING Print lists directly from the app. NO PEEKING Optional password protection – set up a PIN or use Touch ID to keep out snoops. EDIT MULTIPLE GIFTS AT ONCE Changing the status of several gifts at once has always been possible on the lists by status (accessed via the Progress tab). Now the lists by person and the lists by store can do it too. Also new is the ability to change the store for multiple gifts at once. It’s never been easier to keep track of what’s wrapped, shipped, and left to do. _________________________________________ PEOPLE ARE TALKING… "The Christmas List is solidly better...with more options and an easier interface." – The New York Times "’s happy-making" – Yahoo!

  • Nice app. 5 stars if...

    By read'emandweep
    This app is great but is missing 2 features 1. Backup or export so if deleted data is not lost 2. An independent, unassigned gift list (to be assigned later. Now, you can’t enter gifts without an intended recipient. That’s ok if you’re already super organized. Not for folks like me with a large family. I need to add the gifts I have accumulated to a list first, then delegate who they go to. This app would be 5stars IF I could do that.
  • love it!

    Have used this app for 3-years now and I can’t imagine Christmas gift buying without it! I use it all year long, as I see or think of gifts I want to buy. Simple and easy to use. Thank you!!!

    I have used this app for several years. I tried several alternate Christmas gift apps, but ran back to this one. Love the grouping, the running budget totals and ease of use. I also like the ability to archive the whole years gifts to avoid repetition gifts.
  • Fabulous Christmas helper!

    I have used this app for 3 years - easily archived gift history annually. Keeps me ahead of the madness as I make purchases in November and December and can keep it all straight. This year I gave to 38 people, in 9 groups. So worth it!
  • Fantastic app

    I had been using another app for years but it appears its developers have gone to ground, so of course I’m worried that that app won’t function with iOS updates. Then I found THIS one and I couldn’t be happier. I used it all this season and it has everything I had before and more. I’ve tried at least a dozen “replacement” apps and NONE of them work as well as this. Clean interface, easy navigation, whimsical themes. The developers really got all the details right. I’ve adapted one “recipient” to be a cards list, but that would be a nice addition if it wouldn’t clutter things up too much. I love the archive function—it’s much better than my other app and even allows “reversal” of individual archived gifts. I really can’t say a bad thing about this app at all. I’m a convert!!! 🎄
