Organize Your Gift Lists


If you are anything at all like me, you start working on your gift list for Christmas as soon as the last one is finished – like the next day. I look at stuff for birthdays long before those dates arrive. Keeping track of what you have already purchased and what you still need to purchase can be a challenge. To address this ongoing challenge I found a couple of apps you might want to check out.

Social Wishlist for iPhone


For iPhone users ‘Social Wishlist’ may be just what you are looking for. You can create your list and even attach a photo, link, or vendor along with pricing. Once you are finished you can share it with family or friends and/or publish to Twitter or Facebook. There are also in-app purchase options for additional features. If you would like to try this app, check it out here.



Elfster for Android


If you are an Android user, you might like ‘Elfster’. This app includes a scanner so you can save any product you find to your wish list. This app also allows you to share with family & friends. Check out trending gifts and get inspired. You can find this in the Play Store.



Do you have a favorite app for keeping track of your gifting?

    Well, I guess I'm not like you because I don't think of ideas until the days before :). However, I've always wanted to look for gifts to buy other people throughout the years so I could get this unique and more meaningful gifts… so maybe this app is my answer! Thanks!

      I know many people like you who wait until the last minute, and there is nothing wrong with that. But as you say if you can manage to plan ahead just a bit you might be able to find something more meaningful and/or unique. Everyone is different. If planning ahead is important to you, then these apps might help. 🙂

  2. What a great idea! Often, you're out shopping & not sure what you've already bought someone or of the correct size, etc. Having an app to help you keep track of gift buying is a super idea. Thx for sharing.

      One of the problems I have is that I can never remember who I have already purchased something for so I end up with multiple gifts for one person and still needing gifts for another. So I NEED something to help me keep track. 🙂

    I often have good intentions, unfortunately I usually leave it to the last minute. This is a great reminder and it would save time and in some cases money.

    I love the Social Wishlist App. This could save me a great deal of time and bookmarking. You know, you have become my own personal app finder. You gotta love that.
