The best iPhone apps for the Christmas Season
Secret Santa Tombola
Is your office running a Secret Santa this year? Find the perfect gift whilst sticking to a budget with a helping hand from the free Secret Santa Tombola app. Simply select your chosen gender, pick the type of gift you’re looking for from ‘Cheeky’, ‘Fun’ or ‘Cute’ and then add your budget. Spin the tombola and view the recommended gift, buy instantly online or spin again if it’s not right for you. Better yet, the app was founded with a loan from The Prince’s Trust and all Amazon’s referral fees from the Tombola will be donated straight back to the Charity.
Santa’s Bag – Christmas Gift Lift
Take your Christmas organisation to a whole new level with the Santa’s bag app. Giving you the ability to plan gifts, make wishlists and set preferences for each of your friends, members of your family, co-workers and more. You can then set and track budgets accordingly for each of your recipients and enjoy the Santa’s bag countdown to see how long you’ve got until the big day.
Santa’s Magic Phone Call & Text
The Santa’s magic phone call and text app allows your child to ring Santa on demand. He/she can tell Santa their Christmas wishlist which will be secretly recorded for you to view later, ensuring you get the right presents and keep up the magic of Santa. The app also includes over 50 messages for reinforcing good and bad behaviour with ‘nice’ and ‘naughty’ calls. Message categories include working on manners, healthy eating and helping around the house. These messages can even be personalised by you, and will be disguised with the voice of ‘Milo’ the elf, allowing you to add real life events that you would like to gently reward or discourage – for example, being polite at the dinner table or not finishing homework. The app’s built-in Star Rewards system allows your child to earn stars for ‘nice’ calls or lose stars when you ‘Request Santa’ to call – adding greater incentive to behave, while the included Christmas Games – Colouring Book, Stories, Magic Photo Booth, Ink Instruments, Gingerbread Decorator and Christmas Tree Decorator are sure to keep your child entertained.
