Wow! Where have you been all my life?
I recently found this app...just days before Christmas. I'm so glad I did but wish I had found it sooner. This app is perfect if you want/need to keep track of gifts for different people, stay organized, keep track of your budget, and share with family or friends. There are so many different possibilities of viewing once you have entered the information. The choice is yours. It didn't take long for me to update to access what I've already bought, realize I bought two of one gift, and see where I stand with a budget. Next year when I use this, I will be able to plan better. I'm still learning what all it can do.
It may do this already, but a cool feature would be for my kids to create/update their list on their phone, share with me, and then not be able to see when I make updates to what they want. No matter what and even as is, I just love this app! Please keep it active after the holidays, because I plan to use it for birthdays, too!
I love this app
This was so great and made it easy for me to stay organized about Xmas shopping
Second year of using this app and it has become a lifestyle! I use it to organize all my gift giving, not just Christmas. It helps me make quick note of gift ideas I get on the fly and then come back to them when I need to buy a gift, so I don't get stuck not being able to come up with gift ideas when I need them. It also gives me a more realistic look at my budget to plan ahead with spending and avoid going too overboard or neglecting someone. It also helps me remember what I bought and on multiple occasions has reminded me of a gift I would have forgotten to give.
This year I got all my friends and family using it and it was worth it to pay for the advanced version in order to archive my gifts.
The one thing I would change or add would be including a way to create and share my own wishlist the way I make lists for others. It makes reference to "wishes" in the app and I cannot figure out what those are or how to access them, so maybe my wishlist is a feature that exists that I just don't know how to use.
I am really not the type of person who gets this attached to an app but I'm not being hyperbolic to claim that this app has changed my life by helping me be a more thoughtful and attentive gift giver--it makes giving gifts fun and last night I had trouble falling asleep on xmas eve in anticipation of the gifts I was giving, NOT the ones I was receiving!
The way this app is organized is perfect. It allows you to sort by gifts, recipients, even create a shopping list sorted by store, and of course tracks how much you've spent. I've doubled all my recipients with "birthday" as a last name so now I will be using it all year. Love it, definitely worth the $3 for the archival feature.
Update: Just started this year's Christmas shopping, and I definitely appreciate having a) the archive feature so I know what I gave last year, b) the option to add a photo to the gift entry, and c) the ability to sort "needs to buy" by store, which creates an alphabetized shopping list. I now have 20 outfits for 20 children, effortlessly organized and I won't have to wonder what's for whom when I sit down to wrap several weeks from now.
2017 update: I would really appreciate going into a recipient profile, tap add gift, and see a drop-down list of all "unassigned" gifts. I have a stash of gifts I buy on clearance all year, and it's easy to forget what's available.
