AppVice: Santa's Bag Christmas Gift List


Are you shopping for Christmas on a budget? Santa's Bag - Christmas Gift List app will help you to stay organized and on budget for Christmas. This app by Clay Pot Software, LLC is amazing. You can add recipients manually or add them by importing your contacts from you device or Facebook. The budget portion is great because you can set an overall budget for what you want to spend and as you get a gift for each person it will automatically update the amount you have left in your budget to spend on gifts. You can even set a budget for how much you want to spend on each person on the list. Whether you are adding items as a wishlist item or a stocking stuffer, this app has thought of it all.

One of my favorite features is the ability to add the name of the store you need to get the gift from and add a picture of it. This definitely comes in handy when you need to be really specific. The status feature is also cool because you can track your gifts to the very last step such as wrapped or given. Lastly, I love how the overview page gives you an overall budget view as well as the countdown to Christmas including seconds. The dashboard view of the overview page is a really neat snapshot of all your info as well. Get this free app soon, because Christmas is right around the corner! Happy Holidays!

Price: Free on iPhone/iPad/iPod
