The status of your holiday gift list is … complicated. It exists on post-its and paper scraps, as items in the Notes app on your phone and bookmarks in your browser. That can make holiday shopping a confusing task and inevitably lead to forgotten items.
First put yourself on your gift list and download an app for the gift list. Once you've created your list, you don't have to check it twice because a good gift list app handles most of the hard work: syncing across platforms and finding out which stores have the items you're looking for, as well as things such as the size of the recipients of your gift.
An app with the gift list is probably one of the cheapest gifts you can buy this season, because most are free or under a dollar. It will certainly save you from some vacation blues, and can help your vacation budget turn red. A note: a few of the apps have a very specific Christmas theme and look good, but work great for any holiday at any time of the year.
