If you love to make lists, this is one of the best apps to help you with Christmas shopping. It is a shopping list manager. You get a countdown to Christmas and you can enter your budget. You may then make a note of the amount of gifts you have purchased and the amount of gifts you still have to purchase. You can enter your budget and then see how much you have spent and how much you have left to spend. You can see if you have gone over budget by a certain amount. You can also add in the names and pictures of the people you are buying presents for and add in how many presents you have bought that person and how much you spent on them.

2. Keep

This app offers a web-wide multi-store checkout system. Keep allows you to enter your financial details into the system one time only. In that sense, it works on a similar principle to PayPal.

This allows you to buy from different stores at the same time with various items in your shopping basket when you send payment through.
