What is The Christmas List? Description of The Christmas List

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!


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).

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

Simple, at-a-glance views of shopping progress including budget.

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!

Get a jumpstart on your lists by importing select recipients from your existing contacts.

Easily share lists using AirDrop, email, iCloud Drive, or Messages. Use AirDrop to quickly share a single recipient or an entire group.

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.

Once you create a gift you can copy it to other recipients on your list without the need to retype the details.

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 for gifts and people from your photo library, clipboard, or camera.

See a countdown to the number of shopping days until Christmas right in the app.

Print lists directly from the app.

Optional password protection – set up a PIN or use Touch ID to keep out snoops.

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.

The Christmas List Pros

Organized Chaos PerfectionWe have 14 nieces and nephews; 2 kids; Santa; neighbors; and assorted family members we exchange gifts with- a grand total of 30 people or so- this app helps my husband and I keep it all organized. No more small lists that get lost- I upload their lists into my app- and head to the mall or online- easy peasy. I love that I can check them off- when it’s all complete- and while I am working on things- track purchases; stores; and if they are wrapped! My Husband loves that it keeps the budget on a running tally for us. The only issue for me, you need to add the names each year.... no big deal just annoying. Totally worth the cost!.RMacMamaVersion: 3.1

Almost perfect..Great little app. I've tried 3 or 4 of the other main gift apps over the past couple years, but never really found one I'm happy with till now. It's intuitive, looks good (although not sure about the password page?!), so far reliable and has some great features I've not seen elsewhere. My only two issues are 1) it's only a christmas app - but if you can live with app name all year round, you can easily add a birthdays group. 2) No 'ideas' category - again you can survive this by using using 'to do', but seriously think this basic feature should be added to make this app invincible! 5 stars in hope....RP577Version: 1.9.1

The Christmas List Cons

Sharing doesn’t work consistentlyLove many things about this app. However, the airdrop feature only works sometimes, even when airdrop for other things (like pictures) works fine. That makes it an app we cannot use, since frequent synching is a very high priority use case for us. Both my husband and I have had the app get hung up trying to share updated lists with each other, without the app ever successfully transmitting the updated list. The FAQ indicates that we can “share as attachment” - but that option isn’t available, and emailing the list simply sends a massive table over email rather than allowing any type of app synching. Is it possible that there is a size limit that breaks synching? Who knows. I can’t find any information with that constraint. If you have no need to synch - it’s a great app!.Nd go iobgf Dee d onVersion: 4.0
