Our Story

Marilyn's Gift is a woman owned small business, started by three college friends who met as members of Kappa Kappa Gamma at George Washington University.  We stayed close through the years during successful careers, raising our children and suffering the loss of our parents.  The idea for the company came from Cheryl, our founder.  She had lost her mother Marilyn to cancer and wanted to keep Marilyn's values of kindness and the importance of family as a positive force in the world.  Marilyn's Gift began in this spirit, with the goal of making it easy to stay connected to family and friends while spreading kindness in meaningful ways. We are finding great joy in working together while building a business that brings happiness and love - something we all need more of these days.
