FileMaker, a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple, has announced the
Bento 3 Holiday Pack (, a free way
to get organized for the holidays that works with Bento 3, the
personal database from FileMaker that’s designed especially for Mac

The Bento 3 Holiday Pack includes a 30-day trial of Bento 3, plus two
festive themes and two additional templates (beyond the 35 that come
with Bento 3) to help plan parties and organize a gift list. The gift
list tracking template tracks gifts both given and received, tracks
thank-you notes and even provides a place to store
comparison-shopping details.

The Holiday Party Planner stores a guest list which links directly to
the Mac Address Book, a to-do list which links directly to iCal
Tasks, recipe files, food and beverage list, the menu and more.
The Bento 3 Holiday Pack also works with Bento for iPhone, so
customers can work on holiday planning on an iPhone or iPod touch,
and then synchronize the information to their Mac.
