Give & Tell with Morgan Haines

Morgan Haines

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.

Morgan's Picks from Wantist

Beggin’ for Bacon on Bacon Day

Savory or sweet, on its own or wrapped around a friend, infused in booze or expressed with art; it’s bacon, and it’s the best thing ever! I honor bacon at least once a week, but I’ll take any excuse to commemorate its amazingness more frequently. Well, we’re in luck, because tomorrow is Bacon Day! While you’re out celebrating the gateway meat this weekend, think about bringing some of these tasty treats with you, since there’s nothing worse than forgetting to BYOB on September 3rd!

Bacon really brightens up a room, so you’re going to want to get your hands on a few of these sizzling items. Start with a toast to bacon mania from this etched pint glass while savoring the scent of a bacon candle (made with real bacon fat). Don’t forget to keep things cozy with a decorative pillow or two, but be careful, guest envy will likely ensue!

We all know sharing is caring, so send a greeting card to a pork enthusiast, or read a salty love story with your sweetheart. Perhaps you know a wall that needs a piece of awesome art…there’s no need to be shy, say it loud and proud with me, “I LOVE BACON!”
