Ingenie.us is the e-commerce creation of Troy and Valerie Mellema. Having owned an online business (WordsYouWant.com) for over a decade, every year we struggled to find unique gifts for friends, family and employees. We wanted something different that you don't just find anywhere and we wanted the option to personalize it if we wanted to. To us, creativity is everything! We wanted to find those brilliant and ingenious gifts. That's how Ingenie.us was born. 

Ingenieus is Dutch for ingenious and brilliant, so the name was a perfect fit! Different and creative. That's what we do!
