I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

About Us

All through grade school my teachers would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I always said that I wanted to be a "sew-er", but I was told that I would never make any money that way. I started learning how to sew when I was five and spent years sewing and making jewelry. After high school I ended up going to cooking school and working as a chef for many years and then as an accountant for many more years. In 2004 I decided to turn my hobby into a company and started Lauren Nicole, LLC (named after my niece) and I love what I do. I have always believed you will be the happiest if you follow your dreams no matter how long it takes.

Lauren Nicole Gifts is a small family owned business. I hand make and/or monogram 100% of the products on the retail site and my husband, Brian, helps me with shipping during busy times. My sister, Jenn, hand makes all of the wholesale products and runs The Preppy Button (the wholesale website).

My husband is active-duty military (Army) so we have to shut the business down for two weeks every two years or so and move it to a new location.

Thank you for visiting my website and thank you for choosing to buy items hand made in the USA. I really appreciate your business!!
