Asking for cash as a gift is an uncomfortable concept for many but Patchwork Present takes away the awkwardness with a polite and personal gift suggestion.
There’s nothing personal in a cash gift but sometimes you may only want or need cash to put towards a larger gift. Take a wedding gift list where you don’t want to book through a travel agency and you wish to do it yourself but you also planned on using the gift list to pay towards your travel. Patchwork Present enables you to create a personalised patchwork of individual parts of your honeymoon itinerary from transport, hotels and travel to activities, luggage and food. It’s completely tailored to how you will be spending the generous cash gifted to you, piece by piece. It also means your guests know exactly what they are contributing towards. So, for example, if you’re off to an exotic beach honeymoon you may include a ride on a seaplane for £100, a candlelight dinner on the beach for £75, a new luggage set for £150, cash towards your flights that are costing £2500 and smaller contributions towards one, two or three £5 glasses of wine.
I love this original and unique gifting alternative as a wedding gift list for honeymoons, it’s something I regret not doing for our own wedding.
But it also works well if you’re looking to use your wedding gift cash towards a house. Create a patchwork of various furniture, decor and accessories and even appliances or building work!
The concept is fantastic for a range of occasions including a baby shower, graduation, gap year gifts, retirement or even Christmas. Your friends and family can collectively contribute to a larger gift that you really want in a creative and fun way.
