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!

  • The spirit of giving

    By Seat of my pants
    Wow. This may be one of the more valuable apps i have purchased in years. Easy to use and monitor while shopping. Allows me thoughtful consideration and organization of data. Most importantly, keeps me on track and relevant to the season. I no longer feel guilty about missing or potentially missing people. I can manage a budget in context with my whole list. I can stay in touch with other things much more important during the Christmas season.
  • Great app!!

    By Thazch
    I love this app. I have used it now for 3 years. If you have many people to buy for, this is a great way to keep track of what’s been purchased, wrapped, ordered, received and how much was spent on each person!! It has really helped me stay organized and on budget. It will even allow you to archive what you bought and how much was spent in previous years. Thank You for such a great place to keep everything together!
  • Nice...but Priority doesn’t work

    By iThis
    Overall very nice. I liked in particular that the app offers 4 priority settings for each gift. i.e. No Priority Maybe Definitely Wants Must Have Great. Except that applying a priority to a gift does nothing that I can see. You would think that it might apply a unique color or font or maybe an icon to that gift when viewed in that persons list. Or at least order it toward the top, or indent it, or flag it, or something. Anything. In general though I think this app will be handy this holiday season.
  • Lost everything

    By SpecialKcookie
    I have used this app for past couple years. Can’t do Christmas without it. My app has gone completely white and I have lost everything. Everything I have bought, prices, budgets and ideas. Anyway to get this back. My app is nothing but a white screen now.
  • Sharing the app

    By ShivvyP
    I am unable to share the app with my husband using family sharing. It is asking him to purchase it again. Can you fix this as we should be able to share the app. Apart from that it is great, I have been using it for 2 years.
  • Don’t try to use this on an iPad

    By Trayla Parker
    Will not adapt to screen size or orientation - I can’t even use my keyboard with this and it gives no way to input any text even on screen. Complete waste of money since I can’t even use it as I don’t have an iPhone.
  • View Archived Gifts

    By Stinky Pinky
    How do I view archived gifts? It says it is under a person’s history, but I am not able to find that. I accidentally saved gifts under the wrong year and I would like to move them!
  • Busy mom with large family

    By mom of 3

  • Not a great app

    By D from tulsa
    This is not user friendly to go back previous years and see what you got. Also it’s easy to delete the whole list.
  • Love this app

    By kkklkkkkkkkkk
    Love this app. It allows me to see how much money I spend every year and makes it easier to stay on budget. The only thing I would add is sorting options. I want to sort anyway I want and I want people who I am “finished” with to sort to the bottom.
