My name is Marisa and I’m thrilled to be the newest member of The Gift Insider team! Even though I’m a copywriter by trade, I’ve always fashioned myself as a pretty awesome gift giver. I enjoy the hunt for the perfect gift but most importantly, I live for the sneak attack—giving the gift they never thought they asked for (because listening to the little things everyday in turn, creates my giftspiration). Who doesn’t love hearing…”but how did you know?”
Some of my favs:
Here are the Gifts I Love on The Gift Insider:
1. State necklace by Maya Brenner – I LOVE to represent my home state, the Midwest’s high-five, the mitten state, Michigan and whenever I wear this necklace, I always get compliments. It’s the perfect gift for your “transplant” friend who loves showing off her hometown pride.
2. Bocce in a Bag – I actually grew up playing bocce ball. It’s an Italian pastime that the men in my family always played in the summer at gatherings and I always tagged along as a kid in hopes that my dad would let me throw a few times. It’s an awesome lawn game and a fun gift for the men in your life or a sporty friend.
3. Mad Canvases – I’ll all about putting up original and unexpected art work in your space (whether it be at work or at home) and that’s what I love about Mad Canvases. It takes your standard black and white city print and adds a pop of color to brighten up your space and inspire creativity.
I hope to offer you hours of giftspiration, humor and hip DIY gifts, for that extra personal touch. Look for my DIY post every Friday.
