How to plan the best Christmas day ever!

How to plan the best Christmas day ever

Christmas isn't too far off now, so make sure that you have the best Christmas day ever by downloading this selection of apps. Enjoy!


Free for iOS/Android/Windows Phone

When you’re stressed out up to your eyeballs thinking about presents, decorations and finding enough chairs so that everyone can fit around the dinner table this Christmas, take a weight off your mind by downloading the Ocado app.

Made famous by that sweet, but horribly memorable jingle (“Ocado dot com”), Ocado can make your Christmas dinner simple.

Order all of your ingredients from the comfort of your sofa, and avoid those stressful late night panics, and more importantly, the last minute Supermarket Sweep-esque dash on Christmas Eve.


Free for iOS/Android/Windows Phone

Continuing on the lazy-sit-on-your-sofa theme (after all, Christmas is busy enough as it is), why not try downloading the Amazon app?

Choose and pay for all of your Christmas presents in one fell swoop, from DVDs and Bluerays to books, clothes and gift cards.

Why waste time and money traipsing round the shops when you can do it all online?

Mary Berry Christmas recipe app

£1.99 for iOS

Forget Nigella, Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver, if there’s a special way to baste a turkey, set a Christmas pudding on fire or roast potatoes, then you can be sure that Mary Berry knows about it. 

And, if the mere fact that Mary Berry has released an app isn’t a Christmas present in itself, you can recreate a range of tasty treats- fit for the Queen of cakes- for your own family.

With step by step guides and even a build-in timer, you can go from zero to hero in the kitchen. Just don’t invite Paul Hollywood…

Christmas Music

Free for iOS and Android

Christmas day wouldn’t be complete without a medley of Christmas tunes, from Wham! to Mariah Carey and all things in between.

So rather than digging out the old CD player, download the huge range of Christmas music apps for iPhones and Android including the aptly-named Christmas Music app for iOS and the Classic Christmas Songs app for Android…


Free for iOS and Android

Another key part of Christmas day is the compulsory post-dinner festivities. So before you stick on It’s a Wonderful Life, work off your turkey dinner with a game of old fashioned charades!

By downloading one of the many charades apps available in the Apple, Google Play and Windows Phone stores, you can generate hours of fun using the various film titles, songs and books, bringing the whole family together.  

To get you even better prepared for Christmas, take a look at the best online shopping apps.
