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!

  • Great App

    By Rbmcg
    This app is great as long as you actually input the information and utilize its capability. The only thing I do wish is that it would give you a total budget cost of all groups you set up so there is a cumulative budget as well as the individual group budgets. Right now you have to individually add up the different group budgets to get what your cumulative budget is. I don’t know if the app developer reads any of these but if so, would you please add that capability to the app?
  • The best!

    By Kvallotton
    I could not live without this app, especially during Christmas time. Every person I’ve shown it to, which is been a lot, has ended up purchasing it. I have lots of people that I buy for every year, each of them receiving multiple gifts, and it keeps me so organized! This app is a no-brainer. Just buy it! You will be so glad you did.
  • Incredibly handy

    By YoYoSher
    Update: STILL loving this app Very handy & extremely useful to keep track of what you’re getting who & how much is left to spend. When something you ordered arrives, you can look in the app if you forgot who you ordered it for. 😁
  • Best Christmas list out there

    By LoveNLuck
    I tried a few different ones this year but ended up back at this one, which I've used for years, because it's the best. It lets you view all gifts by progress, have multiple recipients on one gift, add the store it was bought from, etc., and I learned quickly that lots of gift apps don't have those features. The ONLY thing I really, really want is to be able to change the progress names. I don't ship any gifts so that button is useless to me. I'd LOVE to have To Do, Purchased, Received (for gifts ordered online), Wrapped, and Given.
  • Love it!

    Only way I can keep up with all the family gifts And other gifts I can stick in boxes according to group and pull after looking through my Inventory!
  • Great app!

    I love this app! I have one suggestion that would make this app even better. It would be nice to have a note section where you could note what gift you received from that person.
  • Do not use

    By LauralO'Rourke
    Everything is gone. It's a lie, it no long us saving my lists. So sad that I trusted this. Ugh. Look at the other negative reviews. Those are real reviews.
  • Time saver

    By emtee11
    I have used this app for many years and it is a great time saver. It keeps me organized throughout the year and no more forgotten presents. The first year that I used the app it honestly helped us get to bed at a decent time Christmas Eve just because we could keep track and wrap more ahead of time. My only complaint is the scroll to add stores. So frustrating when I’m trying to quickly add a gift. It should be a type in preemptive selection. Please?!? Thanks!
  • Makes Christmas so much easier!

    By CBW89
    Love, love, love this app! Yes I could create a Google Doc spreadsheet that would do the same thing, but having the information in a user-friendly format on my phone is so much better. I would not be organized for Christmas without it!
  • Couldn’t do Christmas shopping without this app

    By lgrogro
    I’ve been using this app for several years and have archived my past gifts. Now I can look at what I purchased in the past so I don’t buy the same thing again. I keep track of how much I’m spending per person and total. I create a budget for each person and know when I go over. I can keep track of where I purchased each item too. I could go on and on. This is an app that I could not go without. Seriously.
