Want to stick to a budget this Christmas? Want to manage what gifts you have bought for your family and friends? Have ideas during the year and want to keep track of them? Well then this is the app for you.

Manage Christmas is a shopping list app to manage the gifts you buy or are planning on buying for Christmas. Simply add your family and friends, set a budget and add the gifts you've bought or are planning to buy.

You can set an overall budget and then give each person an individual budget, the app will calculate what is left allowing you to keep within your budget.

In addition to all this, there is also a gift ideas section that is continuously updated, so if you're at a loss as to what to get someone then we have some recommendations waiting for you in the ideas section.

Very Useful

This app is great for making lists and seeing how much you need to budget for, how much you've spent on each person, how much you've spent all together, what you've bought and what you still have left to buy. It's password protected so no risk of anyone snooping!
The only improvement that would be really helpful would be if you could change the order of the people in your list. I try to keep mine in order of families but people keep having babies and they have to go down to the bottom of the list.
I would definitely recommend this app though. It's so useful!

I love this app

Simon thank you for developing this app, it’s really useful, I don’t know how I’d manage without it. Helps you organise the myriad presents to get for each person and balance the budget, so you don’t spend more on one child than another for example. Also helps plan which shops you need to visit so you don’t waste time. I’ve used it for last few years. Please fix password lock as not currently working on mine. Thank you.

Great app but sadly no password protection

I downloaded this app and entered all the details of recipients, gifts bought so far etc. It was exactly what I wanted in that respect. However, despite having put a password in initially, I could open it subsequently without a password. Sadly I can’t take this risk with 2 young children who will look at it when they see the app, so I’m going to have to find another one and reinput all the details.
Please update with password protection and I’m sure loads more people will use it, including myself.
