The Christmas List App Description

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. _________________________________________ PEOPLE ARE TALKING… "The Christmas List is solidly better...with more options and an easier interface." – The New York Times "’s happy-making" – Yahoo!

    Help! Love this app but after updating to iOS 11 last night, I can’t open because it crashes when it loads. I se there is an update here from a few minutes ago, but there is no button to press to start update and no updates active in App Store. I’m afraid to delete and reload app because I have so many lists I am actively using and don’t want to start over. Thanks!
  • Easy to use

    it works great for its purpose.
  • Great app!

    I think this app is great! It's well thought out and easy to use. I like that you can import contacts or just add them manually. I also love that you can take a picture of the gift, which will be helpful when I go to wrap gifts since I'm buying stuff now to be done with Christmas shopping before the season! Also love that it says how many shopping days are left!
  • Love it!

    All that this needs in this app is to add some way to access old archived lists from previous devices. I can only see what I archived since I have had my phone.
  • Love this App

    Update from 4 years ago: I said this would be a 5-star app if you could do budget-vs-actual comparisons and a "check off" when you've completed someone on your list. Those have been added. Unfortunately, there's a few more issues I've identified that will keep this 3-stars. The big one: The notes you save for someone disappears if you archive. I can't remember Aunt Beesom's nicker-size! That's why I want a memory enhancer--not one that gets wiped clean every year. Second: if you access your archives to seek your notes, your current year's purchases get wiped out. I JUST NOW discovered this, as all I'd bought to date disappeared. I'm about ready to return to pen-and-paper. I know it's bizarre to start shopping in June (when I found my first perfect gift). I do so because I can give FANTASTIC presents without busting the budget. I'm desperate for an app that loves me as much as I love giving perfect gifts. Alas, though this app now does what I wanted 4 years ago, it has not evolved with me.
  • great app

    I LOVE this app! I have used it for 4 years and it gets better all the time. It is easy and fun to use. I use it for birthdays also. I just add people with "Birthday" after their name so I can make those lists too. I use this app all year.
  • The best!

    I've used this app the last two Christmases and I love it. It's much better than any other similar apps I've tried. I love that you can group people together and add photos to each profile (Which is rather pointless, but still fun!).
