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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Can’t do xmas without it
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!)
Very easy to use, organizes everything just as you need it to be. Add a person set a budget and go shopping. If you know what you want to buy each person, put on the list. If you don’t, add it as you go. I found adding items is quick. To Do is the best feature. It let’s you see what’s left to purchase by person and by store. This was a BIG BIG time saver because I knew exactly what I needed to buy at each individual store. A list of chain stores are provided to choose from, but you can easily add your own. Budget feature is extremely nice. I could see what was spent on each person and the total for everyone. The App works off line independent of the cloud. I can’t find anything negative to say and would recommend the developer modify this one to work for birthdays, weddings and other holidays throughout the year. Tom, Fredericksburg, Va.
Can't live without it
Love this app!!! I no longer need to take a million paper wish-lists with me to the store. And no longer have to do all the math in my head. I can track all that right here. I can upload lists and email lists to grandparents etc. it's awesome! Passcode protected too so the hubby can't snoop either! Can't wait to use it again this year! Now if it had a way to tell me where the cheapest place was to buy it it'd be absolutely the best!!
2018 comments: Still one of my fav apps. I wish there could be a way to flag the to-do’s vs just ideas. As I would love to filter out my actual to do list for ease of shopping.
2019 comments: I see that I can air drop to share lists between my iPhone and iPad, but it seems to be done at an individual level. Is there a way I can sync the entire app data between my devices?
