This is a program I really need: Something to remind me of all my family and friends' birthdays, anniversaries, and other special dates. Not only does Gifts 'n Reminders keep track of those dates, it helps you keep track of gifts you bought in advance and hid (in a spot where no one else would find them, except that you usually can't remember where that was either!), helps you budget for gifts and track sizes, likes and dislikes and tons more!

I downloaded and installed Gifts 'n Reminders without incident. The user interface is clean and friendly; the navigation buttons are on the left (People, Gifts, Events, Reports, and Setup), with the remainder of the screen being devoted to a monthly or yearly calendar or a list (by clicking the three tabs across the top of the calendar). Adding a new event is easy: Simply click on the "New Event" button and a screen appears, requesting the relevant information.

Gifts 'n Reminders allows you to organize your gifts, budget for them, and keep track of what you purchased, where and when, for future reference. You can print shopping lists by store or person, print event listings, personal profiles and gift lists. You can even password protect the information you've entered to keep it safe from prying eyes!

Although the software is very user-friendly and easy to understand, it has a quick tutorial and an extensive help file. The shareware version is time limited to 15 days. If you decide to purchase Gifts 'n Reminders, you'll receive free technical support, free upgrades for all future 2.x versions as well as a 50% discount on all future versions, and a 30 day money back guarantee.

I really enjoyed Gifts 'n Reminders and definitely think it's worth the purchase price. Download the shareware version today!
