Smartphone apps are wonderful little inventions that make everyday life that much easier.
Consider downloading these seven apps to help you complete your Christmas shopping this year!
There’s nothing worse than buying an item on your list - only to discover it for a cheaper price in the next store you visit!
Say goodbye to that frustration with Red Laser, an app that scans the barcode of the item, then informs you of how much it retails for in stores near you.
Bought a few of your Christmas gifts online this year? Keep track of all of them and how far away they are from arriving on your doorstep with ParcelTrack.
Compatible with more than 50 delivery services, including Australia Post, UPS, DHL and more, the app keeps all those tracking numbers in one place and makes it easier to know what to expect and when.
Christmas Gift List
You’ll need a main app for organisation, and Christmas Gift List could be it. Add or remove names to your list, assign how many gifts you want to buy for each person, then track how much you’ve spent so you don’t blow the budget.
Plus, the whole app is password protected, so your secrets are safe with Santa!
justWink Greeting Cards
Don’t forget your Christmas cards for your gifts!
Thanks to technology, even this aspect of Christmas shopping is easier. Use the justWink Greeting Cards app to create a card, customise it with your own photos and messages, then send it either to an email address, or have it printed off and sent to your recipient via snail mail!
As it offers templates and styles for all occasions, this will be an app you can use throughout the year.
Letters to Santa
Not sure what to get for the kids? The Letters to Santa app helps you figure out exactly what to buy for the young ones, and keeps the magic alive for them at the same time!
Get your children to write a letter to Santa on the app, then look forward to a reply the next time you open it up. Quietly take note of what he or she asked for, then enjoy their surprise as they read their reply from the North Pole!
Christmas Gift Budget!
Regardless of whether your budget is sensible or sensational this year, it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on what you’re spending on those Christmas gifts!
Christmas Gift Budget is another general helper that keeps track of what you have bought for each person, but with a real focus on how much you’ve spent individually and overall. Ideally, this will help you finish your shopping with a smile on your face (and perhaps enough left over to treat yourself to something special, too!).
Jump on Facebook and take a look at your loved ones’ profiles. What have they ‘liked’? Which TV shows do they follow? What have they shared recently? Which men’s watch did he share to show his favourite style?
A little social media ‘stalking’ may take the guess work out of your gift buying and help you find the perfect gift for your loved one!
