Christmas Gift List

Christmas Gift List

Download: Android

Keep on top of your Christmas list this year with this handy Android app. Set a budget for each recipient and track your gift ideas beside their name when inspiration strikes, then mark each gift as purchased when you do so. You can password protect your gift list to ensure no one sneaks a peak at their present, as well as keep track of the total you’ve spent so far to stop you going over budget. Christmas shopping has never been easier!

Giftster

Giftster

Download: Android, iOS

Get your gift right every time with Giftster, the gift registry app. Your friends and family members can curate a list of items they’d love to receive, which can be shared with your Giftster group. Then, users can mark off what they’ve bought to ensure no one else buys that same thing – don’t worry, the person who made the list can’t see this part! You can even add things like your clothing size to make life that little bit easier for others.
