“Great Service”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by cwoodey (1 review written)

Great service, very good customer care. The company are up-front about their fee's, I would advise trying to coordinate the honeymoon or the gift list with the same company to waiver the fee's. … Read Full Review

“You can have the gift list of your dreams”

Written on: 16/05/2013 by Rosanna_Mike (1 review written)

It was great to be able to select whatever we wanted for our gift list, from individual items to buy, to trips for our honeymoon. It was also handy that we were able to break down expensive items into several smaller purchases to make them more affordable. Afterwards, we were able to buy whatever we wanted from any shop (affiliated or not affiliated to the site); so all in all great flexibility. The list was easy to set up, new items could be added at any time, items could be moved up or… Read Full Review

“Takes the strain out of it all”

Written on: 09/12/2012 by BigJim2002 (1 review written)

This is a great way to produce a gift list that is both helpful to your guests (it lays it all out for them to make it easy and almost fun), and for you (once your guests have made their choices the team are extremely helpful). I must admit at first we took this option just to give ourselves some slack when dealing with everything else, but in fact the process and the team at Bottom Drawer have been helpful throughout.

“The only way to do a gift list”

Written on: 06/12/2012

We used The Bottom Drawer for our wedding gift list and it was fantastic. So flexible in the way that you can put together gift options. We used it to put together all the elements of our honeymoon and used top drawer holidays for the honeymoon. All our guests commented on what a great idea it was and they all felt a part of the honeymoon by purchasing parts of the trip from $10 taxi rides in New York to 75 EUR spa treatments in Iceland. Top Drawer Holidays helped make the honeymoon unique and… Read Full Review

“Quality personal service - highly recommended ”

Written on: 09/11/2012 by K8TY_BYRNE (1 review written)

We booked both our Honeymoon and used the gift list service from Top / Bottom draw. They assisted in the whole process and were excellent. We were happy that we had the freedom to list whatever we wanted and our guests liked the option to purchase an experience, drinks, dinner, travel costs etc.. rather than just giving money. I have no hesitation in recommending either company for any occasion… Read Full Review

“Just Brilliant all round”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by SolidGuy (1 review written)

We used both The Bottom Draw for our wedding list and The Top Drawer to organise and book our honeymoon and were delighted with both services. We found the process of organising our wedding quite daunting and somewhat stressful at times and this service made it so much easier. We loved the flexibility of the service - we could present our guests the option to contribute to specific items, make a cash contribution to our honeymoon or we made up some specific meaningfull gifts like - a bottle… Read Full Review

Ooops made a typo - should have read 'so a guest could pay £25 towards a £150 gift'. Hope that makes sense now :-)

“Brilliant and easy to use service”

Written on: 08/10/2012

A friend of ours recommended The Bottom Drawer as they had used them for their honeymoon fund. We are so pleased we used The Bottom Drawer, we were able to make little bundles of gifts for our guests to contribute too, accompanied by little funny comments to make our guests feel involved. Our guests found the service easy to use. I thoroughly recommend The Bottom Drawer - it is easy to use and easy to personalise. … Read Full Review

A wonderful way of having a list from different places.

“The Best Gift List!”

Written on: 20/07/2012

If you want to avoid the usual boring gift lists this is the one for you, you can choose presents, honeymoon adventures etc rather than the usual John Lewis plates that you probably already have. It's easy to set up and easy to use. It's also free if you book you're honeymoon with them, we did and had an amazing time in Vietnam… Read Full Review

“Perfect wedding gift service”

Written on: 19/07/2012 by g3mm4h (1 review written)

My husband and I decided to use the Bottom Drawer for our wedding gift list as we'd already been living together for over 2 years before we got married. As a result we had already purchased most household goods that we needed and indeed wanted. To avoid receiving duplicates of products we already had, and indeed to avoid the danger of people buying us gifts we certainly didn't want, we decided to pull together a more diverse list through the Bottom Drawer which allowed us to pick a number of… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/07/2012

Thanks for your review. Just a little note for other couples thinking of using us - we also transfer funds out to you BEFORE you start buying anything if you want, we just have to deduct the low admin fee of £89 from the transfer, which is then refunded to you once you've made all your purchases!

“The Bottom Drawer helped make our dream honeymoon...”

Written on: 10/07/2012 by costaricahoneymooners (1 review written)

We used The Bottom Drawer to ask our wedding guests to contribute online to our dream honeymoon in Costa Rica. Our guests loved the idea of being able to buy us parts of the honeymoon (e.g night in a hotel or beach horseriding),which is so much nicer than just handing over cash without knowing how it'll be spent. We found the service good, especially when it came for the funds to be transferred to our account as this was done expediently and without any hassle whatsoever which meant our… Read Full Review

“fun, simple, effective, useful”

Written on: 07/07/2012 by usernameany (1 review written)

Well worth doing. Good site, easy to use, clear instructions and guidance, clear pricing and options, no nasty hidden surprises. Regular and prompt communication. High level of personalisation possible, site is flexible to your needs. Site looks and performs professionally, slick and stylish. we were getting marreid having lived together for years, so a conventional gift list was not appropriate. We wanted to buy a camper van so were essentially asking for donations towards that. The Bottom… Read Full Review

Guest's Response to usernameany's Review

Written on: 15/07/2012

Hi

This is such a great idea - we are looking to ask for money towards a campervan but had not thought of listing individual items - it makes it so much nicer for friends and family. Looks good to do it through The Bottom Draw but I can't decide between this and 'WhatToGive'.

Would you by any chance be willing to share your list of van parts? It would be great to see the options you were able to give.

Thank you.

Penny

“Excellent ”

Written on: 27/06/2012 by SteveUK1978 (1 review written)

If you want a mix of things on your gift list as we did (some cash contributions to honeymoon costs and some actual "stuff") and don't want to be limited to one supplier like John Lewis, then I would highly recommend The Bottom Drawer. The site is easy to use and set up, their communications were good and the charges were modest given how useful the site was throughout our wedding planning process. We shopped around quite a bit for an online gift list and just felt this was the most… Read Full Review

“Perfect gift list site”

Written on: 31/05/2012

Used this site for our wedding gift list so that our friends & family contributed to our honeymoon. It was easy to use, you could make it very personal with pictures and we got the money as soon as we asked for it. Couldn't have asked for a better service - thanks so much!… Read Full Review

“Great idea, so simple to use!”

Written on: 21/05/2012 by LCowlingThomas (1 review written)

I found Bottom Drawer from a wedding magazine, had a quick look and wasn't sure if it was for me as rather than a normal 'gift list' I needed cash donations towards my honeymoon (but did not want to sound that rude!) - I decided to email Bottom Drawer and was so glad I did as they got back to me that day and told me that, for their standard admin fee (£89) I could make up a honeymoon 'gift list' (e.g. "drinks by the pool at £10 each" etc) and get guests to contribute that way. Everyone who… Read Full Review

“A great, simple to use service”

Written on: 18/05/2012 by Ian-H (2 reviews written)

The bottom drawer was a great way for us to split up our wedding list into actual items and money towards our honeymoon without simply asking people for money. It gave our guests the feeling of buying actual presents rather than the rather businesslike process of transferring money between bank accounts. It was simple to use for both us and our guests and any communication was always quick and clear. It's also a great way to get items from different stores if you don't necessarily want to open… Read Full Review
