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!

  • Love this app

    So easy to use. Just add the people you give gifts too and you can add ideas throughout the year! You can break people into any categories you want. We even have a Stocking category so I don’t forget what I get everyone! Have used this app for years and I love it!

    I use this app every year and it helps me keep track of who I have bought presents for what I’ve gotten already how much money I’ve spent where I bought the item what else I need to get. I could then archive one year and start a new year it’s fantastic.
  • My favorite Christmas app!

    By Blueturkey14
    Everything you need to keep on track for the holidays. Who to buy for, what you already bought and who’s left. And set a budget for everyone on your list. Don’t hesitate, download now and finally be ready for the holidays 🎄

    Getting to love this app. Keeping me organized,
  • Great app!!

    Been using it for years and love it!! Easy to keep track of what everyone is receiving, how much has been spent, and what is left to purchase. Love the archive feature to see what you bought someone in the past to ensure you’re not buying the same thing every year for your barber, teacher, etc.
  • Help!

    By mimasays
    I used this app for years with no problems. I rely heavily on it for my holiday shopping. My issue now is I just purchased a new iPhone 14 Pro and all my other apps transferred seamlessly to my new phone except for Christmas. The app appeared on my new phone but all my data was gone! No record of people, gifts, prices,and the years of archived gifts are gone! I emailed the support team twice but haven’t heard from them. Please help me!
  • Thank you for responding with the fix!!!!re:HELP!!!

    You were so kind to respond and tell me how to access the app…but now I cannot find your response among the hundreds of reviews. May I ask if you would please resend your response? I’ve used this app for several years. This year it will not accept my password to open. It’s the same password I’ve used every year. Now all my purchase history for our family of 28 (kids, grandkids, parents etc) CANNOT BE ACCESSED!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!
  • Super useful

    By Pammer1019
    I’ve used this app a few years in a row. Love it-simple to use and keep track of everything. The one thing I would love to see is a way to track items that have been ordered but not yet received-perhaps an optional step after ToDo but before Wrapped. In the days of online ordering this is becoming more and more the norm. Thank you!
  • The Best!!

    By Phin2728
    I have been using this for years and would be lost without it. Christmas shopping gets crazy and this allows me to categorize who I am buying for: work, yankee swap, nieces and nephews, my family etc. I can list where I bought each gift, or if I still have to buy the gift, and if it’s been delivered or not. Honestly my head would be spinning without this app. And it’s free!!
  • 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.
