Gift Management Apps!

16 Dec , 2014  

You now have less than ten shopping days left to finish up your holiday shopping!  For some, keeping track of what you’ve bought, what you need to buy and who you need to buy for can get a little crazy.

Gift Manager Apps are all the rage this holiday season, and here I’ve broke down three of the most popular for you.  Note that a ton of these apps have VERY similar names, so it can be hard to know which one to trust!  So before you download, check out these options and then get to the store already!!
The Christmas Gift List (free)
This handy app lets you import contacts from any social media site and store gift ideas, purchased gifts or even proposed gift budgets for each person.  My favorite feature is that you can sort people into groups.  This is especially helpful if you have many parties with gifts at different times of the season.
Santa’s Bag – Christmas Gift List (free)
This app has been featured in The New York Times and on the Forbes “Santa-Approved” Apps list.  With such jingle-worthy accolades, it’s a fine contender for anyone’s gift lists.  Within the app, users can import recipients, create their own wish lists and track their purchasing progress.
mGifts- Gift List Manager ($1.99)
Yes, I usually recommend free apps.  And for $1.99, you better not have to check these lists twice.  With mGifts, the type-A holiday gift-giver can breathe a sigh of relief.  mGifts, like most others, lets you import recipients and budgets, but also can sort your lists by store, event, group or individual person.  And, with gift status flags ranging from “needed” to “wrapped” and “shipped”, you’ll be set from purchase until the gift is opened!
Any other options you think should be on our list?  Let me know!
