The Perfect Christmas

The Best Christmas app for secret Santa, Christmas lists and more! You put things on your wish list, then others can find it and see what you have put on it. They can mark it as purchased so other people can’t buy the same thing. But you can’t see if your present is purchased or not!

Happy Christmas!

The BEST app for secret Santa!

As a family in the UK & New Zealand we’ve used this app for the last couple of years, easy to set up and share. Particularly like the draw feature and the wish lists - I’ve recommended it to loads of my friends! Thanks 😊

Great family present tool

We have used this app. For years, it’s so good, we do a family secret Santa, and it’s such a fab and easy method to make sure someone gets a present they really love! Not just for Christmas, but other occasions too! Thanks for inventing it!
