Meet the newest addition to our team! She’s a talented graphic designer and self proclaimed internet addict. She’s funny, clever, and been making me smile since the day we met. She’s also one hell of a gift hound. Check out Morgan’s first few posts on Wantist and keep an eye out for more to come. Also visit her personal blog, Internet Therapy, for tales of her love affair with Mr. Internet.
I asked Morgan to Give & Tell for us today so you could get to know her better. She was all over it. Here she is!
Tell us about a gift-giving ah-ha moment you recall.
My girlfriend and I have a running “that’s what she said” joke contest. We never tire of it and use it as often as possible. We even managed to work it into our bridesmaid speech when we co-maid-of-honored another friend’s wedding last year.
I was mindlessly browsing at Urban Outfitters the other day when I came across a book completely devoted to “that’s what she said jokes.” I instantly knew she needed to have it and snatched it up right away. I was going to wait for her birthday in December but it looks like the cat’s out of the bag now (Happy Birthday, Melissa)!
What’s your favorite reason to celebrate with a gift?
I believe the best days and ways to give gifts are the ones you give for no reason at all! I love to give gifts simply because I found something and thought someone I knew might like it. “Just because” gifts are so much more heartfelt and spontaneous than ones that you give because the holiday or birthday (or some other annual event) requires them.
