Once again, it’s that time of year when we start to look for the perfect gifts for those we care about. It can also be one of the most stressful times of the year for many and the experts all advise we take some time for ourselves. So what could be better than some self-indulgent and free apps for your iPhone. This is a great way to beat the holiday blues while saving some hard-earned cash. In the holiday spirit, here are some of our favorites.
Sleeps to Christmas
You would not want to forget how many shopping days are left, would you? Of course not. This cute free app counts down the days for you, complete with adorable animated graphics and music. A must have for your holiday iPhone.
Grant My Wish
Are you tired of getting the same old (and lame) gifts from your friends? Well no more with the Grant my wish app. This handy program lets you search through 1000’s of cool gifts and find the ones that you really want. You can then share your wish list with friends, who can then even collaborate to get you something amazing. Grant thinks beyond the holidays with settings for birthdays, anniversaries and more. Never get a boring gift again.
Coca-Cola Christmas Snow Globes
Nothing says Christmas is here more than those classic coca-Cola commercials. You can relive (and reinvent) some history with your own free Coco-Cola snow globes app. First create your own globe scene, then add you personal message; sincere, funny or anything you like. Finally you can share it with all your friends. Shaking your iPhone is optional.
If you prefer to keep things simple, then perhaps one app that does it all is more your style? Christmas is just that app and combines all your favorite holiday needs into one. Starting with a Christmas countdown and Special Advent calendar, Christmas. Also includes:
• Gift list
• Festive Jokes
• Christmas Songs
• Wintery Wallpapers
This is a cool app, and the best part is opening the “secrets” in each day of December. Visual appeal and functionality in one neat package, do check out Christmas today.
Christmas Tree Maker
No holiday list would be complete without your very own iPhone Christmas tree maker. Forget spending $50 or more on a real tree, now you can have a free one that never dies or sheds needles. This cool app has been upgraded since last year, and allows you to add hundreds of decorations to your perfect tree. New trees and bulbs, plus you can paint on strings of flashing lights. Once you’re done, you can just set your iPhone down in the corner and enjoy. We don’t recommend you place it in front of the fireplace however. Happy Holidays.
