Editing a patch within a new bike patchwork

1. Create your Patchwork

Browse our many unique 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 for much wanted 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’re celebrating a friend’s birthday, and know they’d love a spa day, you could include options for people to contribute £50 towards a massage, £20 towards a facial, buy a drink in the bar afterwards for £5, or ask for tips on books to read while they’re relaxing!

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 gifts and messages from friends and family. So when your friend has enjoyed their gift or experience, you can upload photos to your account 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 Patchwork gift page. The Pinterest-style layout and mobile friendly shopping experience makes it easy and fun for friends to contribute, too.

Hear From Happy People:

Georgia's Dad's Art Print

Quote from Georgia Craib
“Everything has more value when it comes from the many; full of love, effort and care. Surely that’s what giving is really about. My Dad taught me that, so truly it was a no brainer to Patchwork a special gift for him..”

Yvonne's Mulberry Handbag

Quote from Yvonne Wake
“It was my 60th and I confessed to my kids that the only thing I wanted was a Mulberry bag. Of course I would never ask my children to buy me such an expensive gift alone so Patchwork was perfect, as it meant my daughter could invite all my family and friends to chip in.”

Otis' Brand New Bike

Quote from Hannah Lamdin
“We live in a small London terrace, so I really didn’t want friends bringing Otis random birthday gifts to clutter up the place. I’ve been to so many kids birthdays and hate buying things that I’m not sure the kid (or the parent) will like. It feels like such a waste. So I loved that people could contribute towards Otis's bike.”
