Gift Lists

The first thing you’re probably planning to do is write out the gifts you want to get for your friends and loved ones, and what better way than to have a list of the gifts in your pocket?

Christmas Gift List offers up a simple and straight forward way of creating a gift list. You can set a budget for individuals, track your spending, share your list, or password protect your list if you want to keep it a secret. There are many nifty features in Christmas Gift list, but making the list is only half the battle. Don’t forget to check it twice!

There are a ton of shopping apps for Android and if you can’t find a particular item in one app, there’s a good chance that you’ll find it in another.

Whether you’re looking for electronics, clothing, or something a little more personable, be sure to check out the following applications to get you where you need to go.


Google Shopper




Sure, the list may seem a bit generic, but these should be the apps that you pay attention to most. Google Shopper, Amazon, and eBay encompass a wide range of just about anything you could be seeking out, and Etsy will bring you some unique handmade items that you just won’t find on the three aforementioned apps.

Package Tracking

So you bought all of the gifts you want, so now all you have to do is wait. To ease the waiting game, you might want to take a look at Package Buddy Pro to keep track of your shipments.

There are many package tracking applications available on the Google Play Store, but I’ve personally been using Package Buddy for quite a while. It’s by far one of the best looking package tracking apps available, utilizing the Holo UI aesthetic, and comes with a ton of features.

Available in a free version as well, Package Buddy Pro allows you to keep track of multiple packages, view the progress on a map, and see the official website of the shipment right within the application. You’ll also be able to sync your shipments across devices and get access to the Package Buddy website to view shipment progress online.
