With a Pinterest style layout, gorgeous image gallery and easily customisable templates, Patchwork is also the only platform that doesn’t charge a set up fee and doesn’t hold your funds. Free to set up and with cash contributions coming directly to you we only make money when you receive yours – with a 3% commission on contributions.
Set up a Honeymoon Fund:
Create a patchwork to show your guests your dream honeymoon as a collection of images so they can choose which part of the trip to treat you to – £200 for a night in a hotel, £50 for dinner or £5 for beers on the beach.
Collect cash towards one big gift:
Invite friends and family to chip in towards the one thing you really want – whether it’s a new sofa, a work of art or even help buying your own home. Creating a patchwork is easy and with a Pinterest style layout it’s fun for friends to contribute, too.
Ask friends to help make and do
If you’re planning a DIY wedding and want help instead of gifts, Patchwork lets you share your vision for the big day, so friends can choose whether to bring a bottle, make a cake, do the decorations or promise to DJ.
Guests can leave messages with their gifts. And you can keep track of the things people fund, make and do in your account, so it’s easy to say thanks.
You don’t need to sign up or pay an upfront fee to start creating a patchwork so try it out today.

We used Patchwork to organise our wedding gifts and it allowed us to fund our dream honeymoon to Iceland. People were able to choose from a number of gifts we specifically selected and it was so easy to use.

The perfect alternative to a John Lewis wedding gift list, for when you've already built up a collection of shared household items over the years and have run out of money for the honeymoon! Simple to set up your own, and easy to contribute to someone else's. We enjoyed selecting pictures for our patchwork and could pitch gifts at various prices to suit all wedding guests. Could not speak more highly of the whole experience :)

We used PatchWorkIt our wedding/honeymoon trip as wanted experiences to remember rather than material objects. PatchWorkIt was spectacular; it was so user friendly; flexible and so visually pleasing. Our kind gift givers loved using it and embraced the alternative to the traditional which fitted our wedding marvellously.

Thanks Patchwork! We used the site for our amazing honeymoon road trip around the USA, and it was brilliant. So easy for friends and family to contribute to our trip, and so fun being able to share the memories with them all of the things they enabled us to do.

Loved my experience using Patchwork. I used this platform for setting up a gift page for my friend's 40th. The page was beautiful, and easily sharable and super easy to use.

We used Patchowrk for our wedding. It was a great idea to put friends together to get us a single present, which we really wanted, rather than small ones. We also live in a very small flat and definitely did not have any space for additional cutlery/crockery etc.
I had been looking for a while on something like Patchwork, but in the other instances, I had to create a website myself and it was a bit time/consuming for our busy schedules. Patchwork was extremely easy to use, creating our Patchowrk was fun and also the customer service was prompt to help some of our friends who were struggling with the payment system from overseas. Overall a great experience and wonderful memories!

Amazing, easy to use, genius idea. Instead of asking for a load of old junk we didn't really need as a wedding gift, we asked all our friends and family to patchwork our dream honey moon. It worked. There's no more special feeling than being on holiday with the one you love, knowing that all the other one's you love have bought that moment for you.
Perfect, thank you Patchwork x

The best way to organise wedding presents, know who have give what and be able to organise the thank you cards (instantly and offline)

We loved using Patchwork Present - it is such a good idea and we loved how customisable it is. We used it to allow our wedding guests to contribute to our lifetime National Trust membership fund. It was easy to set up a page that was very "us" and our family and friends loved seeing how much we loved the NT in all the photos! The whole process was very smooth and I would definitely recommend Patchwork Present to every other couple looking for something a bit different!

We used Patchwork Present for our wedding gift list to help fund our Cape Town honeymoon. It was so easy to use, not to mention fun thinking of all of the wonderful places we wanted to visit! A beautiful website, that is ideal for those who are looking for a gift site that's different from the rest. Patchwork Present added to our overall wedding experience! I would recommend the site without hesitation.

We absolutely LOVED using Patchwork Present as a way to invite people to help contribute to our dream honeymoon. It fitted in with the relaxed fun approach we had to our wedding (which was AMAZING) and we had great feedback from family and friends on how nice and easy it was for them to donate. Thanks Patchwork Present, we are currently booking our dream honeymoon to Thailand! <3

We found Patchwork Present whilst desparately seeking something different for our wedding list. We're planning a big travelling honeymoon but knew that some members of family wouldn't be as comfortable contributing to our gallavanting around the world, so also wanted to include some more sensible options to do with getting on the property ladder, buying useful things for the house etc. Patchwork was absolutely perfect for both of these purposes and allowed us to create a really personal, engaging list that ticked both boxes, allowing our guests to feel that they were contributing to our life wish list. The look and feel of patchwork was perfectly complimented to our wedding and extremely easy for both us and our guests to use. The support from the team was also first class, particularly as we were one of the first patchworks they tested. We cannot recommend it highly enough - in fact 3 lots of couples from our guest list are now using it for their upcoming big days. Thank you Patchwork!

Who knew you could ask people to buy you a new bathroom? But Patchwork Present worked a treat. We made a patchwork to show our perfect bathroom with all the bits we wanted. And then our family and friends could choose to buy us whatever they liked - from a tile for 1 to a toilet for 100!. Brilliant site. Cheers

We used Patchwork Present for our wedding, not only was it a complete life saver but it was really complementary to the look and feel we were going for. We researched other gift list sites but Patchwork Present was by far and away the most advanced in design and functionality. It worked brilliantly for what we wanted it to achieve; we made and starred in our own patchwork (lots of creative fun) and it allowed our friends to understand and choose what part they were playing in our honeymoon as opposed to just parting with cash. We were really worried about asking for money over household goods, but the amount of effort that Patchwork Present allows you to put into your site conveys to your guests how much you want to go down this route. Amazingly, after a few reminders, we raised all the funds we needed to set us on our big adventure. I have used the site since for other things, amazing idea, amazing site really well executed. 5 stars.

My partner and I were so thrilled that this site launched just in time to use it for our upcoming wedding. We really wanted to take our kids on holiday for the first time to celebrate our marriage but didn't quite know how to ask for money as a gift.
Patchwork Present not only provided a gorgeous-looking solution but also meant that friends and family all over the world knew they were contributing to something special and could pick elements to give us that meant something to them. We can't wait to update our page with familymoon snaps to share with our generous guests! Highly recommended.
