An engraved Mariposa piece — be it a frame, statement tray, business card holder, platter or bowl — is a truly personal gift, always fun and a touch traditional. It’s not only the perfect gift for the holidays, but a thoughtful wedding, new baby, anniversary or thank you gift for clients. Show that you care, and personalize it!
