Track Holiday Gifts with Gifts HD for iPad

With 45 shopping days left before Christmas, many of us are starting to think about which gifts to buy and how to stay within our budget.  Gifts HD for the iPad from Macspots is a new app that will help your whole family track holiday gifts and manage their holiday shopping.

Begin by creating an account and then enter your total budget, the people on your shopping list, the gifts you want to purchase for each of them and let Gifts HD track your shopping progress.  Worried about loading this app on your iPad because your kids also use it.  Don’t!  Your list is safe and secure as each user account is password protected.

Once this initial step is completed there are three tasks to be completed.

  • Add an overall budget for the total amount you plan to spend on your Christmas gifts.
  • Add the people you plan to purchase gifts for, including an individual budget.
  • Add the gifts you plan to purchase.

Adding these items is all done from the same screen making it a very simple process. You can either click on the add button to add the specific item or tap on the note in question to open it up in a larger area.

Depending on your process you may be in a position to add all this information at the beginning of the process or as you go, both work and you can also delete any of the items with a simple swipe of the item.

Once you start shopping you can combine the people and gifts and their current status of purchased, wrapped and even mailed. You can even add descriptions and where appropriate, tracking numbers.

Gifts HD developed by Jason Jardim is a slick to do list made specifically for the purchase of tracking Christmas gifts and it makes it very simple.

There are a few missing items that don’t really stop the app from doing what it’s supposed to do, but would take it to another level. It would be great to be able to import lists from other sources such as your contacts or other files. Also being able to edit multiple contacts or gifts at the same time would be a nice addition.

For those of you who like to be organized Gifts HD would be your perfect companion this festive season.
