And it is not only about receiving gifts. Organizing the exchange, thinking about dinner (and how the expenses will be divided) as well as choosing the ideal present are always things that complicate us this end of the year.
What I close is that technology has shown more than once that it can be a great ally in this regard. It is enough to review the trends in Google Trends that already tell us what we can expect as a gift during these closing parties of the year.
According to data provided by Google to Unocero, although consoles remain one of the favorite gifts of the season, search interest in wireless headphones reached its all-time high in Mexico during 2022.Yeah, so if you were hoping to get a console this Christmas, it might not happen, and instead you’ll get a handy headset.
But beyond that, the truth is that technology can make the chaos (even though we often don’t want to admit) that comes with these end-of-year parties even more bearable.
5 essential apps for this Christmas
That is why from Unocero we share 5 apps that will make this Christmas experience a little more bearable, with solutions to solve the classic conflicts around exchanges, the selection of dinner or the choice of the best gift.
Secret Santa 22: Sort it!
Let’s start with the exchange, an activity in which it is increasingly common to speak of “secret friends”. This app, available for iOS and Android, allows you to coordinate this popular Christmas tradition with great clarity, access and from the mobile device.
It allows the creation of groups to organize different versions of the game, in addition to making a series of tools available to the participants that allow them to identify the person to whom the gift should be given, to customize the date of the exchange and add additional indications such as the limit price or some gift preferences.
All information is stored in the system and is shared with those involved via WhatsApp or email, depending on your choice.
If the idea is that this year Christmas gifts are not bought, but handmade, this app for iOS and Android is the ideal one, since it offers all kinds of classes around certain crafts.
With free basic classes and some more advanced courses for a subscription, this may be the app that gets you out of trouble.
DIY Christmas Decorations
Along the same lines as the previous one, this application for Android will be for those people who prefer to do things from scratch when decorating for Christmas.
It offers a gallery with options for Christmas decorations, with some tips to take advantage of the materials that are on hand and not spend more than necessary.
Splitting the bills for a Christmas dinner at a restaurant can be very tricky. The truth is that this alternative, available for iOS, allows you to quickly divide the bill with up to 10 people, including the tip.
It is enough to add the products in their respective categories so that the system makes the division automatically. Goodbye to misunderstandings. An alternative app is Settle Up, available for iOS, Android, and Microsoft, which works in a similar way.
This app seeks to provide a definitive solution to avoid the mountains of clothes on the bed to find the right clothes for this Christmas.
The system allows you to take photos of the clothes in your wardrobe, organize them by category and start making combinations to see how they would look. It also offers information about the weather and makes recommendations based on this data.
