MyFamilyGifts is an iPhone app developed by Alexis Pasty. This awesome app provides users with a way to track which gifts came from which person. This enables you to send thank-you cards to the correct person, retain family records for future generations, or prevent an embarrassing case of “Didn’t I give you this last year?” re-gifting.
As we age, it can often be hard to recall even the most momentous events with clarity. You might have a set of lead crystal glasses that you got as a wedding present, but you can’t remember who actually gave them to you.
Alternatively, you might have a great idea for your Dad’s birthday…but you have a sneaking suspicion that maybe you got him something similar last year. MyFamilyGifts helps users track their gifts over the years, eliminating these common problems.
MyFamilyGifts has another perk: you can use it to keep track of important events in your family: birthdays, anniversaries, and the like. You can also send your favorite gifts (or gift ideas) by email or message. And if you’re rocking iOS 6.0 or above, you can elect to share your newly received gifts on your Facebook wall.
The winter holidays may be months away, but that shouldn’t stop you from downloading this supremely useful tool right away. MyFamilyGifts is the perfect tool for people who start their holiday shopping early in the year: you can track gifts that you plan to give to others, and ensure that you don’t over-buy (or overspend!)
While it may have some awkward phrasing and word choice in places, MyFamilyGifts is a great resource for families and single people alike!
MyFamilyGiftsis compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
