Plan the best baby shower

Yay! One of your best mates is having a baby. First, give her a huge hug. Next, organise the best baby shower ever. Customise a template or create your own from scratch and send it out to everyone so they can help pitch in - from making cakes or blowing up balloons to organising games and sorting out the playlist. Then all that’s left to do is cry tears of joy and have a blooming lovely time.

Editing a patch within a baby shower patchwork

1. Create your Patchwork

Browse our baby shower and baby gift ideas and choose a readymade template to customise. Or create your own ‘wish list’ from scratch. With Patchwork you can invite friends and family to fund physical gifts, pay towards experiences or contribute time and skills. A patchwork of images shows them the things you’d like them to fund, make or do. For example, if you want to throw a baby shower you could include options for people to contribute £20 towards some bubbly, £10 towards some snacks, offer to make the cake or organise the games!

2. Collect money

Patchwork is not tied to any suppliers and we don't hold your funds. Instead money goes directly into your bank account via Stripe so you can spend it when, where and how you like. It's free to sign up to Patchwork, we only make money when you receive yours - with a 3.6% commission on contributions you receive. You can view our fees page here.

3. Say thank you

It's super easy to keep track of gift contributions and offers of help. So once you’ve surprised your friend with the best baby shower ever she can upload photos to send along with a thank you message to the friends who helped make it happen. You can also send printed thank you cards using our 30% discount with our friends at Moo.

With customisable templates and a gorgeous image gallery, it's easy to set up your baby shower page. The Pinterest-style layout and mobile friendly shopping experience makes it easy and fun for friends to contribute, too.

Georgina's Baby Shower

"My amazing friends used Patchwork to not only organise a lovely baby shower for me, but they all chipped in towards some gorgeous presents for the little one. It was absolutely overwhelming and the best day ever."

Stace's Baby Shower in a Box

Friends used Patchwork to organise a baby shower gift half way around the world.
"We live in Australia, far away from lots of close friends. So although I couldn't be in the same place as my lovely friends, it didn't matter because they used Patchwork to organise a huge parcel for us. It was full of gorgeous thoughtful presents and it was like having a bit of home here with us."

Fiona's Baby Shower Picnic
