The Christmas List: The Christmas List app helps you organize your lists and budget for what you want to buy and for whom. You can easily share gift lists with family and friends. It currently has a five-star rating on iTunes.

Giftry: Similar to the previous app, Giftry allows you to share gift lists with family members, and exchange gift ideas.


Amazon: Just like the popular website, you can browse from a wide array of items for specific tastes. Purchase your gifts for family or friends on-the-go, quickly and securely. Fun fact: BBVA uses Amazon’s methodology for its innovation.

Saving money

Flipp: Looking to find a great present, at a great price, but don’t want to sacrifice the quality? Flipp allows you to search for deals by: item, brand or category. You can browse from thousands of coupons, according to the app's description. Thousands.
