We were absolutely over the moon earlier this year when the brilliant Brides magazine named our website Best Gift List . And they didn’t just stop there – they didn’t just say we were the Best Honeymoon Gift List – they called us ‘the ultimate wedding gift list’. Ultimate! We’re very flattered indeed.
Here’s what they had to say: Asking your nearest and dearest for cold hard cash isn’t easy though. There’s the matter of the correct etiquette etc, but we’ve found the solution to end your gift list-woes and remove the stigma attached to such a delicate subject. It is called Patchwork.Born out of founder Olivia Knight’s own frustration with her wedding gift list, the idea is you design a ‘patchwork’ of images that represent what you want.
Your honeymoon is the natural choice, but you can use it for anything you want (read: endless possibilities!) Saving up for a flat? Re-doing your kitchen? Buying a pony? Anything.
Set up your patchwork, send it off to your loved ones and they pick and choose how they want to spoil you. It can be anything from £100 for a night in a hotel, £50 for a fancy meal or £5 for two beers on the beach, for example. You collect the money via PayPal or via credit/debit card paid direct to you and spend how and when you want.
Gift list, done!
Thanks so much, Brides!
