About AnyDate Gifts

The AnyDate Gifts - Since 1997

Our mission is to provide you with unique, personalized historic gifts for life's great occasions.staff-photo-march-2011-for-site.jpg

Through products such as our birthday newspapers, we are lucky to be part of so many special occasions -- from the birth of new children to honoring the 100th birthday of amazing people across the United States.

We have worked hard to maintain the personalized, "small town" approach even as our business and client base continues to grow. In fact, despite our size, AnyDate.com is one of the largest buyers of historic reprints from the New York Times!

Ultimately, success stems from our belief in the value our personalized gifts and products have -- as well as the knowledge that they make wonderful gifts for life's great occasions.

Meet Our Team

Michael Eglash, Founder and Director of Sales

Michael grew up in Milwaukee watching the Green Bay Packers and playing football with the neighborhood kids in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin. An avid sports card collector, Michael has amassed tens of thousands of cards including many NFL, MLB and NBA Hall of Famers. His love of sports, history and cool collectables make Anydate.com more than a “job” for him -- its his passion. Michael graduated from college with a degree in American History while spending most of his time watching ESPN. Michael is always available to help you find the right gift for all occasions.

Eric Esses, Director of Marketing

Eric was born and raised in Houston, Texas and studied at the University of Texas as Austin. After earning an MBA in Strategic Management, he began his career in marketing and hasn't looked back! A husband and father of four, Eric loves to go mountain biking and travel throughout the USA and around the world (as time permits). It is not only an interest in meeting people and seeing sites that feeds the travel bug, but also a fascination with history. Eric is especially interested in the history of World War II and has traveled as far as Hiroshima, Japan to see “ground zero” as well as to Normandy, France to see Omaha Beach where the Allies landed on D-Day.

Hannah Wiseman, Customer Service

Born and raised in Australia, followed by over a decade of living in New York, Hannah has undoubtedly seen the world. A certified teacher by training, Hannah left the classroom to explore her creative side in floristry, and then went on to study Interior Decorating after which she managed an upscale design showroom in New York City. With very little knowledge of sports (unlike some of her colleagues), she appreciates the finer things and knows what makes a beautiful gift. Combining Aussie etiquette with New York efficiency, Hannah strives to ensure that your gift-giving experience at AnyDate.com is second to none! When she is not tending to customers, Hannah enjoys writing, reading, music, shopping and travel. Oh, did we mention shopping?

Zachary Mazur - Operations

Zachary (Zak) Mazur was born and raised in Milwaukee and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in history. In his free time Zak plays in a Brazilian samba percussion troupe. He also cares for his many pets—domestic, aquatic and exotic.
