The status of your holiday gift list is … complicated. There are post-its and scraps of paper, such as entries in the phone's Notes app and bookmarks in your browser. It can make holiday shopping a confusing task and inevitably lead to forgotten things.
Before that happens, first put on your holiday gift list and download a gift list app. Once you've made your list, you don't have to double-check it because a good gift list app handles most of the hard work: syncing across platforms and finding out which stores have the items you are looking for, as well as things like the size of your gift recipients.
A gift list app is probably one of the cheapest gifts you will buy this season as most are free or under a dollar. It will certainly save you from a little vacation blue, and can help your holiday budget go red. One note: some of the apps are very specific Christmas theme in name and look but work well for all holidays at any time of the year.
