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!

  • Can’t do xmas without it

    By QueenBee273848696
    So useful to force me to look at budget in advance, and then track progress as we go. We are always trying to coordinate 3 adults buying stocking stuffers for the kids and I used to have Xmas eve pánic about not enough stuff, followed by a year of so much stuff it was absurd because I’d be picking things up on sale during the year and forgetting... now I archive this year’s list in January, start adding little odds and ends as i think of them/ find on sale during the year, and then in aug-sep I’m ready to look at budget, and by Black Friday/ cyber Monday i know what I’m trying to do. Suggestions: I’d like to be able to share the BUDGET by group/ individual so that spouse and I can “discuss” that in summer before I start freaking out. Would like to be able to archive stuff off the lists for bdays through the year, too! (Didn’t get x for Xmas for my brother but by Feb I’m shopping for his bday.... and then the following Xmas i want to remember what I’ve given him for both....). Great little app tho- nice UI, well thought out. Really meets the need. Copy it over and I’ll spend another $2.99 to do bdays if I have to (although I’d rather have the gift archives together!)
  • Almost great app!

    For the record, this is the best app if you are the only one shopping. I ditched another app and this one is definitely better. The family sharing works...sort of. My daughter & I are able to keep separate lists. But I can’t share with with my husband or send to my iPad. The share via airdrop doesn’t work consistently so be sure to pick a device & stick to it. Otherwise, I love the ability to shop by store and check off purchased, wrapped, etc! Thanks!
  • Almost perfect if there were two updates.

    By Yurtster
    This app is great for tracking gifts and is easy to use. But it would be perfect with two additions: 1. an “idea” category for people. I want the “to do” category to reflect what I have decided to get for someone and need to buy. 2. The ability to sync between two users or devices. I want to select which lists to share with someone else and then be able to sync vs. having to airdrop of share.
  • Awesome!!

    Best gift list.
  • So far so good

    By keystone07
    I like it so far...writing it down on paper is honestly easier and faster for me personally but I like the picture feature and the ability to write notes.
  • Completed recipients

    By shopper778899
    I do not like the check mark as the new indicator that the shopping is completed for a recipient. The image used to change to green. That was much easier to see at a glance.
  • Love!

    By RunScrapSleep
    Love this app!! What can I say more?? Why didn’t I know about this before??
  • No undo

    By Weevings
    I was looking for the Archive feature (found under the Settings tab) but when I used it, it erased all the gifts I’d so carefully added. No undo for this one. I’ll just have to use the Archived ones this year, and hope for better result next year.
  • Great App but...

    By ags0014
    This app does everything I want it to as far as tracking gifts, my only issue is that I can’t share lists in real time with my husband. We use AnyList for our grocery/shopping lists generally and it’s so convenient to be able to add to a shared list! I wish you could share certain “groups” in real time so that he and I could add ideas for family members together as we think of them, rather than air dropping the list to him when we are together. Obviously I’d want to keep a private “group” for the list I create to shop for him, but we always pick things together for other family members so it would be nice to both have the app and be able to open it and see what ideas the other has added or things they’ve already bought. Otherwise, a great app for tracking Christmas shopping!
  • Great Gift App

    By Mimi 3 girlz
    Have used for a number of years, and it’s really helpful and easy to use. One thing I haven’t figured out is how to go back to previous years archives and open them by person and be reminded about past gifts. I see they’re in the archives by years but can’t open them. What’s up with that?
