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

It's the thought that counts!

Mother's Day is one of my favorite days of the year. Being in the retail business there is always one or two men that stand out every year when they call to order Mother's Day gifts for their wives. Here are few from this year:

1. A husband called today panicking because he forgot to order something for his wife. His exact words were "just send one of your most popular items, maybe something pink".

2. My friend's little boy came over today because he was supposed to paint a ceramic piece as a gift for his Mom. When he got here I asked him what he wanted to paint on it. After a look of panic washed over his face he said "can you just paint it for me and put something pink on it".

I think I am finally understanding how Men shop:

"Anything Pink + Card = Happy Mom(Wife)
