With the festival of joy and happiness just around the corner, people are in high spirits. Christmas means spreading joy and happiness in each and every possible way and what better way to express your love and affection than a nice and personalized gift this Christmas. With so many near and dear ones to remember and gift, the real problem lies in remembering whom to gift and what to gift them. To-do lists can help solve this problem to a large extent, but a useful little tool called the Free Christmas List on your Android device can help you bear your troubles so that you can concentrate more on what to gift, and to whom.

The application is a simple yet very effective solution, and is very similar to a To do or a To gift list that users can refer to from time to time in order to know whom they still have to gift and whom they've already got something for.

Free Christmas List

The application allows users to list the different people that the user wishes to gift on Christmas. Once the person is listed the application also asks for the type of gift that the user wants to gift to that person. For instance, if you have to gift a little boy and you wish to give him a scooter, all you need to do is add that to the person's account. And it starts displaying against the person's name. Users can also add the average cost of the gift they wish to give to a person so they have a fair idea about how much they will be spending on gifts.

Free Christmas List

It is possible to choose to gift multiple things to people as well. Once the gift is given the user can simply mark it as gifted and be relieved.

Free Christmas List

The application is very easy to use and offers a great level of customization and control to users. A person can be created or removed at any point from the list, or gifts can be changed. The list is all the more handy as it stays on your smartphone, which always stays in your pocket so you are just moments away from entering or modifying details about a person to be gifted and you can always look at the list when you need to. It would have been real nice if this app could also synchronize data among different devices, which it sadly does not do.

This application is very lightweight and it has no data stored internally on the device so no processing or loading times are required. The app is available in free (ad supported) and pro (ad free) versions at the

Google Play store.

Interested users can head there and download this app, or they can also use the link to do so.
