Our site offers a new experience in gift giving but is based on a common practice. As Liv’s Nan has helpfully pointed out, “It’s not a new idea. It’s a whip-round.” And she’s right.
Like a traditional whip-round our site lets you collect money from friends and family towards a much-wanted gift. It’s just that our online version is not only more efficient and secure but also more creative, personal and fun than throwing some cash in a hat.
People use Patchwork Present because:
- It means you get one gift that’s really wanted, not a ton of stuff that isn’t
- You can use it to buy anything! If it’s legal and money can buy it, you can fund it
- It removes the embarrassment of asking for cash and makes giving money meaningful
- You can collect gift money globally and spend it locally, when and where you choose
- It’s a fun, personal and creative experience for people giving and receiving
- It’s super easy to thank people afterwards with photos of you enjoying your gift
