My Gift Buddy is a new way of organising and managing all your gifts for any occasions.

Simply add people to your list, along with the event details (e.g. birthday, Christmas, special events – whatever you need) to get started.

How do I add gift ideas?

There are a few ways – whichever works best for you. You can directly add gift ideas for a person and event, or you can send them a request asking to send you ideas. If they send you ideas, these appear in the app automatically.

Can I manage the gifts while I’m shopping?

Yes! All gift ideas can be added to your shopping list when you’re ready to buy them. The shopping list area is a great way to see everything in one place and mark them off as you buy.

What about next year?

The app will work every year, even for the same event (e.g. birthday). Just add a new event for a birthday with the correct date and the app will keep track of it for you.
If you want to see what your bought for someone last year, tap Show Past Events and you can take a look to remind yourself.

Can I track spending?

Yes! Each event shows how much the total items on the list will cost, along with a total of how much you’ve spent on that person so far so you can manage your spending.

You can even set a budget for that person, and the app will show you if you’ve over-spent of have a little more remaining for an extra surprise gift!

Any questions?

Please get in touch with us if you have more questions. Use the contact us link in the app menu, or the Contact form on this site.

It’s as simple as that. 

Download for free and start your gift list!

Yes! The app costs nothing to use and all features are included in the free version.

We show a small advert within the app to help fund the ongoing maintenance and improvements to the app, but it’s non-intrusive, doesn’t pop-up without warning or make you watch videos.

My Gift Buddy will ask you to sign in to use the app to save your requests, settings and data to the backup cloud.

Apps can sometimes crash or stop working. Most of the time, closing down the app completely and opening it again solves the problem. It also helps to reboot your device regularly. This clears out cached memory and data and helps your apps load in a clean environment. 

Try to reboot your device at least once a week to help it, and all the apps, run better.

My Gift Buddy will ask you to sign in to use the app to save your requests, settings and data to the backup cloud.

You can choose Guest Mode to trial the app. But to make sure your Gift Requests and Shopping List are saved, you must sign into the app. 

Without a sign-in, your settings and data will not be saved, should you delete the app, or change/lose your device.

You can add items directly to the shopping list by tapping on the + in the Shopping tab.

Type the name of your gift request to see it in the shopping list, along with the price, where you intend to buy it from, website like or other details you have.

Tap your Squirrel helper in the top right for more options.
