BuyABrickForUs was started, as with most things, out of a personal need for something we couldn’t find elsewhere. With special occasions like engagements, weddings or a new arrival on the way, friends and family will offer love, support, well wishes and gifts. Sometimes though, the things you need most aren’t always the easiest to put on a gift registry: rather than a new set of plates and some saucepans, you really want to take that first, worryingly high step up onto the property ladder; or instead of a hundred romper suits that the baby will grow out of in 12 weeks, you really need a new boiler to ensure that your home is warm and cosy for your new one.
But asking for money isn’t always easy: you might feel guilty just asking for cash & cheques, and perhaps Aunt Gwen would rather buy something than just hand over a card with cash in it. Everybody’s different, and we get it. That’s where BuyABrickForUs comes in – you can offer your friends and family a virtual gift registry where they can buy all manner of things – from bricks to TVs to honeymoons – and you receive the money for those virtual gifts directly into your bank account.
You can have your own gift list up and running in as little as 5 minutes – just sign up to get started and be on your way to sharing your own virtual gift list!
