With it quickly coming up to Christmas, many of us have lots
of presents to buy for our friends and family. Sometimes, unfortunately, it can
get difficult to keep track of ideas and get organised for the occasion. We
thought it would be helpful to all you lovely people out there if we went on
the hunt for some Christmas shopping apps to get you on top of things.
designed app to help with your Christmas list! Firstly, you need to add the
names of the people you are looking to buy gifts for (you can even add a budget
for each person). When your list is complete, the app gives you the option to
write a description of the gift and from what shop it’s from. You’re able to
list that item as “Not Bought” or “Bought”, and you can also list the gifts as
“Wrapped” or “Sent”. The Gifts tab shows all the names and presents, so you
have the ability to quickly run through them and see if everything has either
been bought, wrapped or sent.
One of the best aspects of this app is secrecy - you can put a password on it so that no nosy family members can have a sneak peek! Finally. If you're stuck when deciding what presents to buy, the gifts tab has plenty of categories you can scroll through, giving you a strong chance of finding something great.
illustrated Christmas list app - very simple but completely to the point.
The main aspect is, of course, the “My List” or “New List” options. The list is
easy to use; include your budget along with all the names of family and friends
you have to buy gifts for with a budgeted amount allocated to each person. The
settings option gives you the ability to change the way you complete a task or
how the progress of those tasks look.
When selecting a name, you can add a gift and swipe to cross that gift out when
it’s been purchased. Once all gifts have been purchased, the name on the main
list will highlight green instead of red. Unfortunately, not everything is
given to you on a silver plate and this app does include advertisements which
pop up quite frequently. You also need to pay to get more features.
This would be a great app if it wasn't overloaded with advertisements. It also seems
so unnecessary to request more money to upgrade and get a password or remove the
ads, when there are other competitor apps which have all this included for
design and plenty of options to choose from. First of all, you have to create a
username and within the profile creation you get to create a 4-digit pin which
will act as protection from any sneaky ones trying to find out what you’re
getting them. If, by chance, you forget your pin it can be recovered by writing
a question and answer. Once your username is created, you can start adding
names to your list along with a rough budget.
has an internal list so that you can add any ideas and gifts you have in mind. Once
an item has been purchased or wrapped, you can tick the box and if all the
items you have under a name are complete, you can tick that name off your list.
This app has some interesting statistics which are located in a tab along the
bottom menu. These shows things like your budget status, what the most
expensive gift is that you’ve purchased etc. which can be handy.
This app is
one that includes advertisements but they don’t show on a page, they just pop
up from time to time.
Easy to use
Christmas Shopping app ‘Gift List’ will help you get the job done this season. Each
name on the list can be created separately and even a photo can be included. When
creating the separate user you have the option to include the individual budget
and add the list of gifts from there too.
Along the bottom menu you will find tabs like “Gifts”. This shows the names of
gifts you look to purchase for people and how many of those have been bought. Also
on the menu, at the footer of the app, is “Progress”. Available on this is your
total budget and how much you have spent, a countdown to Christmas and a cool
pie chart to show the amount of gifts that have/haven’t been purchased. Within
the settings of the app you can find a passcode to keep away the cheeky few who
don’t like secrets.
Just like many apps nowadays, you have the opportunity to upgrade. With Gift List you can sync lists between iDevices, archive gifts from the past years and take away the advertisements. However to be honest, the free app is fine and upgrading isn't really necessary.
Christmas Gifts Manager
Not much to it, but easy to use. Christmas Gifts Manager is
a simple design, but offers just what you need, the ability to add names of
people you want to purchase presents for and align them in a list.
any budgeting like there is in some of the other apps, but this one does show a
total amount of how much you’ve spent on each individual. The main menu list
shows how many days to Christmas and how many gifts there are left to buy or
how many people you still need to buy for.
feature we haven’t seen on other apps in this category before is the “World
Gifts Feed”. This shows a real time list of what people have purchased from
places all over. So if you’re trying to get some last minute ideas, this
feature may be your saviour!
Of course, like many other Christmas shopping apps, it has a password included, available in settings.
If you want to avoid advertisements, you can update to premium (also unlocks all avatars)
We hope these suggestions make everything a lot easier when
it comes to buying presents this Christmas!
