Do you cringe at the thought of a DIY project but still want one-of-a-kind welcome gifts to greet your guests? You’re in the right place!

Are you the crafty type with big vision but just not enough hours in the day? Don’t worry, we get it.

Perhaps you’re a rock star event planner whose time is better spent catering to clients than forming an assembly line of gifts? We’re glad you’re here!

 

Company

about-company

 

Marigold & Grey is an artisan welcome gift company based in the Washington, DC area. Our mission is simple. We want you to love what you gift and your guests giddy over what they receive. In order to make this happen, there’s a whole lot of thought, imagination, planning, ribbon tying, tissue paper fluffing, and overall magic that goes on behind the scenes.

We spent a year dreaming up a business that will make the tedious welcome gift process feel like a piece of cake to you while offering plenty of chic, unique, locally-inspired choices. But don’t let the fancy-schmancy website fool you. We are still a small business that thoughtfully and carefully prepares each order ourselves, specifically with you and your style in mind. We look forward to creating something you’ll be over-the-moon excited to give.

Jamie

founder & owner

Jamie bid farewell to the corporate world to start M&G. This makes sense since gift giving has always been her love language. She lives with her golf-smitten husband, Jeff, in the DC area. After meeting in 2010 and marrying in 2012, thanks to eHarmony, Jamie affectionately refers to Jeff as the best thing she’s ever found online. Jamie is a stepmom of three and more recently, a mom to two rescue pups, Lewis & Clarkie. While she enjoys DC life, she's a true Virginia girl at heart. Aside from gift design, it's good bourbon and bbq, Redskins football, prop styling, encouraging other entrepreneurs, and long weekend getaways that make her world go round.

Kelly

director of operations

Kelly joined Marigold & Grey as Studio Associate and after making significant improvements to M&G operations in a short amount of time, she quickly rose to Director level. Her background is in strategic market research and project management. Kelly was drawn to Marigold & Grey because of her never ending quest to find the perfect gift for every occasion, a yearning to pursue a more creative career and her operational background. Kelly and her husband EJ live in a little purple cottage in Annapolis, MD with their lab puppy, Red. Kelly and EJ are college sweethearts who met at their favorite Boston College dive bar. She is a huge bookworm who loves a glass of prosecco and quiet weekends at her family’s farm on the Eastern Shore.

Emilia

studio intern

Emi joins Marigold & Grey as the studio intern for Fall 2017 and can't wait to witness the ins and outs running a creative business. Currently a senior at the University of Maryland majoring in Communications, she's quick to tell you she's equally as interested in studio art! When she's not hanging out at her sorority house or catching up on the latest Netflix series, you can find her at the gym or Whole Foods. After returning from a semester in Rome studying business and art, she's currently dreaming up her next big adventure.
