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!

  • My go-to for over 10 years

    By Person123589
    I’ve been using this to organize and keep track of Christmas shopping for at least 10 years now and I love it. So nice having my whole list (broken down by sections for family, friends, in-laws, etc) with me wherever I go. It also allows you to archive the gifts every year so you can recall what you’ve gifted in the past. Only thing that would make it better is to have a web-based version that I can use on a computer because sometimes it’s easier for me to work on a computer and then have it sync to the mobile app. Other than that I’ll continue to use it for years to come!
  • Gift-tastic

    I started using this app in 2015 and it is awesome to track gifts needing to be purchased and those already bought. Love this!!!
  • Please update to be able to move people

    By Pzled
    I love this app, have used it for many years. The only critique is that I can’t move around the people. If a person is added, it randomly puts them between other people. I would like to move people to an order, such as my children together, not split up between other people. I do use grouping, but just for family, friends, work, etc. I just want to be able to move them within the groups.
  • Almost perfect

    By Cwlady
    The only thing this needs is the choice of ‘ideas’ that don’t show in progress. We can then switch to ToDo when we decided to purchase it. Also I feel the status of wrapped should be last or make the status order changeable. The app is easy to use but needs a way to back it up.
  • Thankful to have

    Great app. Easy to use. Face unlocking ability. Rolls over each year.
  • Very helpful

    By Mickiswing
    I’ve really enjoyed using this app over the last few years. I just wish I could get the rest of my family to use it too, but that’s ok. I appreciate that it was a one time (small) payment instead of a subscription. The budgeting feature and the different statuses are also extremely helpful. I would love if there was a way to integrate other holidays and birthday gifting as well, but I usually just kind of fudge it and it works. Thank you!
  • Using it for several years

    By EBN2
    I love this app. I compare it with other and this is so easy to use. Let you archive your gifts, very helpful when you don’t remember what you gave the previous years. The only missing thing is to export your list with prices. I could send the list to my sister of what she own me that I have bought.
  • Good, not great

    By CassMH08035
    It’s functional but could be much better. I would like to be able to change the names of the status options, or select options. I’d like to have the status options be “idea”, “to buy” “ordered” “received” (to indicate that I received what I ordered), and finally “wrapped”. It’s more helpful to be able to track the fact that I ordered something and whether I received it and have it to give, than the fact that the recipient received the gift.
  • Fantastic Christmas app for presents

    By Cozie 6
    I’ve been using this for years. It keeps track of gifts, where you bought them, your budget and photos. Easy to use and helpful.
  • I like this app but could use a few additional options

    By Sirk7778
    It’s easier to see who I have and have not purchased gifts. I like that I can add the same gift to multiple contacts. Having a calculator in the app could be helpful. Having a way to add shipping and tax to an individual item would be very helpful. And since this is a gift tracking app, it would be helpful for one of the contacts already have a checklist and $ per item option for things like tape, boxes, tissue paper, wrapping paper, bags, bows and ribbon, etc. these items are all part of gifts. It would also be nice if there was a way for me to keep track of what my guess is the cost of something and what the real cost is. I k ow this app is for our budget but it’s also for ideas. For example, I have 5 things listed in my list and each cost which in turn adds to my overall budget amount. In reality, these 5 items are placeholders and just ideas for the person and not all these ideas are to be a part of the final budget. But I need to see the cost of the items to make my decision.
