Lauren Nicole Gifts Review and Giveaway

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

This giveaway is now closed, thank you to everyone who entered!

Thus far on Tuesdays we've been featuring educational and children's products. We know our readers are all so involved with their children and always looking for new activities to do with them, but we also knew that this picnic wouldn't be complete without a few special treats for the mommies!
We know you're like us and always so busy taking care of the kids, home, family...and that you usually put your needs last on the list. That's why we're so happy to be featuring Lauren Nicole Gifts, a company that specializes in monogrammed gifts and accessories, this week. Just wait til you see the fun and sparkily fine silver round initial pendant you can win from them! As soon as I heard monograming is Lauren Nicole Gift's speciality I had to go check them out. Pretty much everyone who knows me, knows of my love for all things monogramed. From jewelry to acesseories like these pocket tissue holders, key fobs, bookmarkers, hand towels, pony tail holders, mirrors, zipper pulls, and even magnets anything you think your initals can be added to are at Lauren Nicole Gifts. I especially like the monogramed barrettes and shoe clips. All your holiday shopping could be completed with just one order here as there are even gifts for men, what proud Grandpa wouldn't love showing off his grandkids on a photo key chain?There is a complete line of baby gifts, like an adorable monogramed plush lambs that would be the perfect special lovey for any child and look great in a nursery. The cute It's a Boy slippers for the mom to be would be fun to wear at the baby shower and then again at the hospital. After the baby is born you could snuggle her up in a monogrammed microfleece baby blanket or another one of the cuddily options Lauren Nicole Gifts has. There is even a hand stamped silver baby spoon that would be a unique and practical keepsake. A bucket hat, sippy cup, onesie, and bib all packaged together in a snack square would be memorable twist on a gift basket that's sure to be appreciated and well used by the little one!
My favorite section of Lauren Nicole Gift's to browse is her extensive jewelry collection. My favorites can be found in the monogramed silver jewelry or wax seal jewelry section. I love the variety of styles and font choices and it's artisan style. The Fine Silver Small Round Initial Necklace would be a lovely addition to any outfit.

"Fine silver round pendant necklace can be personalized with an initial. We hand make the pendants in our studio by hand-casting fine silver. The pendant measures 16mm in diameter and can be personalized with one initial. The pendant comes on a sterling silver ball chain necklace with your choice of two 6mm bead charms.

Fine silver is a slightly higher grade than sterling silver. Sterling silver is .925 silver and fine silver is .999 silver"

It's understated and elegant, while the hand stamped swirl design is unique and adds interesting detail to the pendant. You can personalize it with an initial, choose the color of the bead charms added to it, and pick between a ball and rollo chain. Complete the look with matching fine silver earrings. It comes all ready to be gifted in an organza pink drawstring bag and a darling tin that makes this gift's packaging extra special and makes Lauren Nicole Gifts stand out from others. Designed and made by Denise, the fabric on my tin is Lilly Pulitzer fabric, how did Denise know I super duper big ♥ Lilly, and coordinates with the colors of the bead charms on my necklace.

I have a love for cute and clever packaging and love little organizers and containers of all kinds. The gift tins Lauren Nicole Gifts uses are some of my favorite ones ever. They come with all jewelry purchases except for button jewelry and monogrammed gift tins can also be purchased.
