Editing a patch within a childrens birthday patcthwork

1. Create your patchwork page

Browse our many unique, zero waste kids’ 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 want to celebrate your child’s birthday, you could include the option for people to contribute £20 towards a much wanted birthday bike, an ice-cream for £5, organise a sleepover and pizza playdate or bake their birthday cake!

2. Collect money

Patchwork is not tied to any suppliers and we don't hold your funds. Instead money goes directly into your PayPal account or your bank account via Stripe so you can buy your gifts 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 compare partner fees here.

3. Say thank you

It's super easy to keep track of gifts and messages from friends and family. So when your child is enjoying 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 list. The Pinterest-style layout and mobile friendly shopping experience makes it easy and fun for friends to contribute, too.

Hear From Happy Kids (and their parents):

Manu’s Back to the Future themed 10th birthday party

Manu's Back to the Future Party
“My favourite film is Back to the Future and it’s always been my dream to ride in a DeLorean. The best bit was when it when it arrived at my house to take me to my party.”

Rudy’s Lion King Theatre Trip

Rudy's Lion King Theatre Trip
Rudy's mum told us: "It was the best present ever. Rudy was absolutely beside himself. He sat still and watched with wide eyes for the whole three hours”

Otis' Brand New Bike

Otis' Brand New Bike
“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.”
