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!

  • Major flaw: no IDEA Status/Category

    By Tomaszmd
    I spent money on this app, but I guess I won’t be using it, as there is no “idea” option. Only “To Do”, “Purchased”, “Wrapped”, etc. I’ll probably be using the Santas’ Bag app instead bc without the “Idea” option, this app is not helpful to me at ALL.
  • Great app!

    I can easily track who I bought for and what I got them. My whole list of people to buy for is here.
  • Love it!!!

    Last year totally judged my mom for having this app, this year I have been using it myself and y’all it’s a life saver. I mean not literally but I felt so organized and savvy! Loved that I could lock it. My boyfriend likes to sneak a peak at his potential presents but I have completely protected the surprise factor and was able to budget what I needed to get everyone something they would love!!
  • Easy to Use

    Easy to add people to your list and arrange the order for shopping. The copy function allows you to add the same gift to multiple people quickly.

    I've had this Christmas app for several years, always makes my shopping easier, colorful and simple To use, the only thing I'd ask is to add more Christmas characters to the roster..
  • I've tried many others...

    This is the best Christmas list app I've yet to find. It's also the only one I know of with an active developer who seems to care about the fate of their app. I'd highly recommend it!
  • Best app to organize me for Christmas!

    Love it! Covers all my obsessive list checking needs.
  • Excellent App!

    By Mommy interim
    Highly recommended app and has made my life easier. Nice to see how much was spent on each person and who I'm buying gifts for. Great way to file ideas through the year. Love the fingerprint pass code. My kids had cracked the number code in the past. 😬 This app helps to know how much to budget for next year.
