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!

  • Merry Christmas

    Made my gift giving easier! I highly recommend this 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.
  • Awesome app

    By MTPpe
    Great way to keep on a budget and keep track of what is spent
  • Better than excel

    By LoneStar1
    I have been making spreadsheets for years. This is much easier to carry around on my phone while shopping as opposed to my computer. I like that you can add your own local stores. It’s easy to use, colorful and Christmassy. Nicely done app.
  • Almost perfect

    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. ToDo works okay, but 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. Air dropping doesn’t cut it, it also sometimes appends the list vs a pure update. Sharing my kid list with my husband is cumbersome as the app works today, but if we could sync specific lists with other devices, that would make the app a 5 star!
  • Nice app. 5 stars if...

    By shutyourpiehole
    This app is great. I have a large family and lists are pain in the butt. The way it is now you add people and then as gifts for them. That’s pretty good but not usually the way people shop. You come home with a bag of gifts or dig them out of the back of your closet and need to answer them all at once, then delegate to they go to. This app would be 5stars IF I could 1) make a list of gifts first and then assign them to people 2) search
  • Best Christmas Tracking App

    By Momto4redheads
    I’ve been using this app for over four years now. I love how easy I can keep track of what I’ve bought, whats left to get and even check to see what I got in years past. With four kids - this app is life saving!
  • 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!

    By Tami80
    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!!!

    By nickel3956
    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!!
