The Christmas List

By Erik Eggleston

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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.

What's New in Version 2.4

IMPORTANT: If you are using iOS11, you need to update to the latest version of The Christmas List. The previous versions of the app will not launch on iOS11.

In this update:
● Added an option to add new gift recipients at the top of the "People" tab (you can still add people and groups by scrolling to the bottom of the "People" tab, this is just a way to do it without scrolling).
● Updated the icon used to represent a store. Stores used to be represented by a shopping cart; now it is a store front.

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!!

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.

Makes Christmas Shopping Easier

I love this app. This made it so easy to organize ideas and budgets for multiple groups (family, friends, work). I was becoming totally lost in what everyone wanted, my gift ideas, how much money I was spending, and it was stressing me out big time! This app helped me collect all of that into one cohesive list that set my mind at ease.
The one thing I would add is a sub-list feature for stocking stuffers, which I wanted to budget but would come from different stores. I wound up just making another “person” (like “DH Stocking”) and managing them that way, which worked out fine.

Great tool for Christmas

I used a similar app last year but then realized I couldn't archive my list and I would have to enter everyone in the app again. That is too much work so I wanted a different app. This app has more features that allow me to track progress, group lists of people, and it archives the full list for the year! It tracks the stores that I need to go to and what gifts have been purchased, wrapped etc. I love the functions of this app and I have not come across any glitches or issues with running the app. Thank you for such a helpful tool!!! Please keep it up!!!!
