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!

  • 2019 Christmas success

    By Hosea219
    This app was so helpful. I was able to budget, keep track of gifts that were purchased, shipped or wrapped. I made groups for each holiday party we had to go to. I even kept a section for parties we were hosting to make sure we stayed on budget! It was most pleasant.
  • Essential for Shopping

    By Loganeer
    This is my second Christmas using this app and I love it. I used to write everything down on paper and without a budget. This app is great to mark down possible gifts and then check them off after purchase along with their cost. This is so great to help me stay within my budget. Quick and fun to use. Will use next year too.

    I love this!! It helps me stay on track & organized!! I just wish I could put the names in alphabetical order. But I love it!!
  • Easy to keep track of who, what, when, where and how

    By Mint latte
    I had 7 people to keep track of purchases. It was easy but in the purchase location they needed to add Amazon (that’s the reason for the 4stars). Will utilize next year!
  • Items went missing off list

    By Crytz
    Have used for a few years and it is convenient and helpful for organizing and tracking people and gifts, but a handful of items I added early on and had seen on the app for days suddenly disappeared out of nowhere right at Christmas. Frustrating.
  • Great app!

    By Bwen1988
    I have a large family that I buy for every year. I have used several Christmas gift apps and this is by far the best. It would be a 5 star for me if it had 2 more categories to the status: ideas and ordered. I could add to the ideas year round and then decide which ones to purchase. And since I do most of my shopping online, it would be great to be able to track what I have ordered and what I have actually received.
  • Best app for Christmas gifts list!

    By Crazyiphonemama
    I'm happily crawling into bed on Christmas Eve after spending the night with family and NOT spending the last few minutes wondering if I've got all the gifts taken care of. I don't know how I got along without this wonderful app all my life! I used to have the messiest handwritten list each year that I kept under lock and key, but now I just click on this app and it's so easy to stay organized and see who I need to shop for or what I have left to wrap. It's easy to see the budget details, what's been bought, ordered, delivered, wrapped, etc. And what joy it is to check off each family member when I've finished their gifts, so all I have to do is look at the name list and see who still needs something done. It's very simple to use but has everything you need, so even me with my need for detailed information and perfectionism is satisfied bc it's all there. I'll never even search for another gift list app. It's perfect!!
  • Have relied on this for a few years now to get me through the holidays!

    By StacyCK
    We have a large family and many friends who are just like family. With 54 people to buy for, this app is what gets us through the holiday season! Love the organization of the data in the app. I can track what I need to buy by stores so it makes my online and in-person shopping most efficient. Tracking budgets is a breeze and I always know where I stand. Probably most importantly is tracking what I’ve ordered online to be sure I receive it, and also what I’ve wrapped to be sure I don’t forget that one item tucked back in my closet! Lastly, I love the gift archival feature. I can even take pictures of my purchases so I can refer back to prior gifts. There’s nothing worse than giving someone the same “perfect gift” two years in a row (unless of course it’s consumable!). In short, this app helps me stay organized and on track, which helps me enjoy the holidays more! Thanks for a great app!!!
  • Love The Christmas List!

    By ire.maybe
    Love, love, love it! I even created a category for the food items that I bring to parties. Made my holidays stress free! It helped me keep track of my super secret hiding places, which are so great that I forget where they are! Best $1.99 I ever spent.
  • Love it
