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

Happy Holidays!!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!!  We will be spending some time with family and then cleaning out and re-organizing our workshop (it always ends up looking like a disaster zone during the Christmas rush).  My husband and I truly appreciate all of our customers and friends that we have met through our little business.  My husband will become more involved in the business over the next year as we start to add some exciting new products.  He is still in the Army and will be gone all summer so I am hoping to open a tiny retail shop in Ouray, Colorado that will be open from June to September, 2013.  Once he retires from the Army we will move to Ouray permanently and open a larger store. If you have never been to Ouray it is an amazing little town nestled in the San Juan mountains of southwestern Colorado....really worth the trip!  I was going to write about my New Year's resolutions, but they are always the same, and always forgotten by February so I will just wish everyone a Happy New Year instead!
