You won’t have to worry about getting the same present twice or receiving something you don’t like. Your friends even have the option to collaborate on what they want to buy for you. It’s a simplified way of giving and receiving gifts, so you can focus on having fun on your special day.

Be inspired by the wide selection of items you can include on your registry!
Birch allows you to manage multiple online registries with one account, but they cannot be active at the same time. To set the default, go to MY GIFT REGISTRIES and choose which event you’ll be adding gifts to. If you fail to pick a default online registry, the event with the soonest date will automatically become your default online registry.
All items you pick will fall under the default event until you change the setting again.
Here comes the fun part! You can add gifts to your online registry by browsing our online catalog. You can also perform quick searches to find what you’re looking for faster. Imagine yourself window shopping online. Exciting! There are categories at the top of the page to make browsing easier.
Don’t worry about adding the same items to your online registry. The ADD TO REGISTRY button will change to ADDED to remind you that it’s part of your roster already.
You certainly can. You can refine your online registry from your dashboard and delete items you don’t like anymore, even when your online registry is already live. However, once an item has been partially funded via a Group Gift or Cash Fund, it can no longer be removed.
All items are individual gifts by default. On your dashboard, choose YES under the “Tag as Group Gift?” option. This allows guests to contribute individually to a big-ticket gift.
Don’t fret! Birch will convert the accumulated cash value for that specific gift and give you a code you can apply during checkout so you can purchase the item for yourself. Additionally, the item you want to get will receive a 10% discount!
Birch has a list of activities you may want to choose for your cash fund. Just add a title, your target amount, and even include a description of what it’s for.
Your guests will be able to contribute in increments of P1000. Whether your guests don’t meet the amount or exceed it, you will be able to receive the total amount they funded for your cash fund.
Should you feel our list is lacking, please email us using the subject CREATE MY OWN FUND and send to [email protected]
Within two (2) days from the date of your event, we shall deposit it to the bank details you provided in your Account Information. In the meantime, you may keep track of all your cash gifts via the GIFTS RECEIVED tab within your Registry Dashboard.
The 9.5% is a combination of the bank processing fees plus a minimal fee of 5% to cover the miscellaneous expenses we incur in processing and depositing the money to your account/s. The fees we charge is what allows us to offer this add-on service, so we can help make your dream online registry come true.
It's super easy. You may send your online registry link directly to your guests via our sharing tool, or you may use your email. You may also opt to copy and paste the link on your Facebook event page if you have one.
If you are feeling shy, we would recommend sharing the link with members of your bridal party or wedding entourage and request them to spread the link on your behalf.
For individual gifts, head on over to your dashboard and request to exchange a specific item. You can manage all of them on the EXCHANGED GIFTS menu.
Can’t decide on what you want to exchange it with? That’s alright; you can convert the equivalent amount to Birch store credits and use it later!
It will be our little secret! Your decision to avail of an exchange will be kept private.
Yes, they will! All gifts from the online registry will be gift-wrapped and come with a gift card at no extra charge.
Don’t forget to give thanks! Birch has a Thank You program that can help you out with this. Personalize your note and send it via mobile or desktop.
STEP ONE: FIND A REGISTRY If you know someone who has an online gift registry with us, you may look them up on our home page. Under REGISTRY, click the option FIND A REGISTRY. Type down the couple’s name or the event celebrant. If the event celebrants gave you the URL of their online registry, you can access that directly.
STEP TWO: BROWSE AROUND THE REGISTRY PAGE Choose which gift you want to give them by going through the sections: INDIVIDUAL GIFTS, GROUP GIFTS, and CASH FUNDS.
STEP THREE: ADD TO CART Once you’ve found the perfect item to gift, you can add it to your cart. It works like an online shop, but you’re shopping for someone else! Contributions for Group Gifts and Cash Funds also go to your cart.
STEP FOUR: GO TO SHOPPING BAG It’s time to review what you’re buying! You can also remove items you don’t want to get in this page.
STEP FIVE: CHECKOUT Proceed to pay for the items you wish to give to the event celebrants. You’ll receive an email confirmation indicating the success of your purchase! Just browsing? You can buy items for yourself on Birch too, just like a regular online shop!
There’s no need to sign up. After you’re done picking out a gift for the celebrant(s), you’ll fill up your details during checkout. That’s how the registrant will know that you were the one who gave them your gift!
The event celebrant has chosen some items that they have opened for group gifting, which means pitching in to fulfill the total amount of a big-ticket item. You’ll be able to see gifts tagged as such in the GROUP GIFTS section of the online registry page. You can fund each item for a minimum of P500 and in increasing increments of P500 only. We will process the payment during checkout.
Of course! If you want to buy the item for the celebrant, you can purchase it the same way you will a regular item.
The celebrant will receive the total cash value that all the guests chipped in for that gift. Rest easy knowing that your friend will get their gift from you!
Similar to group gifting, this is funding an intangible gift, like plane tickets or deluxe hotel accommodations. The goal is to help the newlyweds or event celebrant get one step closer to their dream purchase!
The minimum amount to pitch in for cash funds is P1000 and in increasing increments of P1000.
To streamline the consolidation of the gifts, we kindly ask that you only shop for one online registry at a time. This also means that you cannot add your personal items while paying for gifts of a registrant.
Payment needs to be completed for one celebrant or online registry before you proceed to purchase a gift for another celebrant. This will help us determine which gift is for whom, and ensure the correct delivery of your presents!
We honor the following payment methods:
● Birch Store Credits
● 7 Connect
● EC Pay
● M Lhuillier
● BDO Bank Deposit
● PNB Bank Deposit
● Unionbank Bank Deposit
Of course! Just send us a screenshot of your deposit, and we will process your payment like a regular bank deposit.
It’s just like online shopping! You will receive an email detailing your purchase after completing the checkout process. It will serve as your proof of payment.
We value the safety of your data. Birch has an SSL certificate and adheres to the Data Privacy Act and uses encryption to make sure all fund transfers are 100% secure. We don’t tolerate fraud.
Just sit back and relax! Birch has partnered with reliable and professional couriers who will handle all shipping and delivery work for you.
This varies depending on the weighted dimensions of the gift. Naturally, the bigger and heavier the item, the higher the fees. This is automatically calculated and charged to giver upon checkout.
We will consolidate all of the registrant’s gifts and ship them all at the same time, which is seven (7) days after the event. But don’t worry -- they will be notified of your gift the moment you buy it!
You bet it will! The recipient will surely appreciate the handiwork of our team in making sure the gifts look as pretty as possible.
Personalization options are available. Just write your note on the GIFT MESSAGE section at checkout, and we’ll include it.
Physical gifts will have note cards. If your gift is in the form of a Group Gift or Cash Fund, we will send the note electronically.
All purchased products are considered fulfilled after checkout. If you need to cancel it, kindly contact us at [email protected] within 24 hours. We’ll do our best to rectify the situation!
Yes! So, if something caught your eye while shopping for your friend’s wedding or housewarming party, know that you can also buy the same thing for yourself if you want to! But as mentioned, you need to complete the purchase one at a time to avoid any confusion as to which item is for whom.
