Top designer for creative and unique gifts
Amanda Poses, the top designer for creative and unique gifts, is the founder of fill-r-up, a NY boutique and website specializing in custom baskets and themed gift ideas. As a former event planner at the world-renowned fashion company Escada, she often found herself looking for VIP gifts that never seemed to measure up to the high-quality products to which her clientele was accustomed. After starting fill-r-up in 2003, Amanda realized that she was not the only one who appreciated creative exceptional gifts. Her innovative and personalized gift baskets have been featured on the pages of People Magazine, US Weekly, OK! Magazine, the New York Post, Fashion Wire Daily and Working Mother, among others, and she has lent her gift-giving expertise on NPR, NY1 and WB11.
An avid supporter of nonprofits, Amanda previously teamed with Jessica Seinfeld on her Baby Buggy Crib Drive to help provide cribs to mothers in need. Amanda currently works with other organizations including the Albert Einstein Family Day and the Family Advisory Council at Komansky Center for Children's Health at New York Weil Cornell Hospital. Amanda, who grew up in New Jersey, currently lives on the Upper East Side with her husband and two children.
