Top Philly Gift Picks: Marisa Magnatta
December 02, 2013 | by Michelle Mass | Pursuits
Our Top Philly Gift Picks series highlights the top holiday presents coveted by Philadelphia’s most notable personalities. This week, we caught up with Marisa Magnatta, associate producer of WMMR’s The Preston and Steve Show, to find out what items are on her wish list.
Seaside by Michael M. Koehler ($25). seasideboardwalk.tumblr.com
“I love coffee table books filled with photos and I love the Jersey Shore. I went to high school with the photographer who put together this book; his work is—and always has been—amazing. Plus, proceeds support NJ Hometown Heroes.”
Robe in various styles, Wrap Up by VP ($148-$168). Hope Chest, 1937 Chestnut St., 215-665-9169
“[The robe] is super soft, lightweight, warm, and looks cute when you're all bundled up! I get really antsy sitting at home, but if I had this robe I might be okay spending a cozy night on the couch.”
Gift Certificate to COOK (prices vary). 253 S. 20th St., 215-735-2665
“I despise gift certificates, probably because I always forget to use them, however, this is an experience. I went to COOK for my 30th birthday—I couldn't think of a better way to [have] spent that special night. Classes are a tad expensive, so this would guarantee that I sign up for another one.”
“I can’t decide between a silkscreen print from Charlie Barton or a skyline photo from Chris Byrne. I just got a new apartment and I have to decorate; is it selfish to ask for both? I met the artists at the Manayunk Arts Festival last summer; they are both nice guys with beautiful artwork. Different but very Philly.”
Carrera, TAG Heuer ($4,600). 160 N. Gulph Rd., King of Prussia, 888-585-9136
“I've been eyeing this watch for a while; maybe this will be the year Santa leaves it under the tree.”
