Patrick @ Giftsicle


Founder + Sr. Editor

I started Giftsicle back in 2017 after creating gift guides for some of the top content sites online – even had a hand in creating  I decided to create a one-stop destination for all things gift related – from the traditional types of gift guides (for your wife, husband, kids) to guides that are for all the dorks out there, like me, who love pop culture moments like Schitt’s Creek, The Golden Girls, Friends – you name it).

I hope you find the gifts that we chose to be ones that put a smile on your face and your loved ones (or frenemies). We (myself included) choose everything by hand and stand behind all the products that make it into our gift guides. Sometimes we get it wrong and will end up removing them – hey we’re not perfect!

If you have a gift you received (or bought) you love and want to let me know, feel free to drop me a line. All my contact info is above (email, Facebook, Instagram, and even LinkedIn). Happy gifting!

Jennifer Belanger


Sr. Editor of Gifts & Party Planning

Why hello!  I’m Jennifer, the Senior Editor here at Giftsicle where I tackle some of my favorite subjects – gifting, gift etiquette, and some pretty fun party planning.  A mom of three teens (ugh) and an editor since 2015, I consider myself an expert on picking out some of the coolest and most sought after gifts for just about any event or holiday coming up.  

Since 2015, I’ve contributed gifting content on brands like, Brostrick, Jenraly, and The Wine Down Report (I’m a big fan of wine too!).  You can find some of my articles picked up from publishers like Yahoo!, MSN, and even Buzzfeed (many years ago!).  

In addition to gift guides, I pride myself on helping to answer all those gifting etiquette questions that pop-up throughout the year (like what do you do if the invitation says “no gifts required”), coming up with really thoughtful messages you can add to any of your greeting cards, and fun ways to plan a variety of parties and events for all ages.

Outside of “work” I enjoy going to the gym, having a glass or two of wine, reading (when I actually have time), staying active, being a wife, and a mom to three pretty amazing kids – who all plays sports (we’re a hockey family).

Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions about a gift I’m recommending or just want to vent your frustration in general (don’t worry, I sift though plenty of those kind of emails too). If you’re a PR friend and want to send me a product or gift to check out and potentially cover, this is the best way to go about that.   Email me here!
