Not sure this helps

I had high hopes for this as I have The Better Christmas List from the same developer and have enjoyed it, but not sure this helps me.

I need a database/budget for tracking gifts for Christmas and Birthdays, and I thought this would fit the bill. However, the basic premise here is to add events by date. So, I'd have to add a separate event for each bday and each holiday then add each person I want within those events then add each gift for each person.

This would take forever! Also, there is no ability to group the people within an event. The integration with contact list allows you to choose from contacts but there is no import feature.

I think it would be easier to start with your contact list (allowing for editing, adding, deleting, & grouping) then add event dates to them for bdays and/or holidays. Then add gifts for the events.

The idea being that you can get a bday list/budget or a specific holiday list/budget.

A solution is much needed to be able to manage contacts with their events and needed gift list in an easy input manner! We need help!!

-bday gift lists by contact/group
-holiday gift lists by contact/group
-import contacts with editable features
-export lists to email
-budget for groups and/or event
-alerts for upcoming events
-gift purchasing/wrapping/mailing status
-store shopping list

The interface is great and background options a bonus. PLEASE make it user friendly so that it gives us what we need. Thanks!

Better Gift List

App installed easy and works without crashes. I would like to see this integrate with my contacts to get birthdays, anniversaries, holidays to get a list of upcoming events/contacts that I could select from. I would also like the ability to select a time table for notifications (i.e. Events in the next two weeks, next month, three months, etc.). Needs easier addition of events/people to create lists for, ability to assign groups, multiple shopping lists (for multiple stores), priority of items in lists, and ability to set gift status for homemade gifts.

One of my favorite apps

I started using the Christmas gift list app which was a godsend. Then they came up with this one and all my prayers for gift organization were answered. Now I don't blow my budget and I don't forget anyone either (unless I forget to put them on my list).

Thank you! Keep up the great work!
