Lauren Nicole Product Review & Giveaway


I am very excited to announce that this is my first product review and giveaway, brought to you by Lauren Nicole Gifts! Lauren Nicole Gifts has a wonderful array of merchandise that can be personalized and monogrammed.

One of my favorite things about this site is that they are super affordable! They have a $10-$20 section, as well as an under $10 section. And these aren’t cheesy, cheapo gifts. One of my favorites is the Monogrammed Badge Reels and Lanyards section, almost all of which are under $10. As almost everyone I know wears an ID tag at work, whether they are teachers, work at the hospital, or at any of the public service buildings, these are definitely going to be a favorite for my gift lists! There are many patterns and colors to choose from, my favorites are the dot ones.

They also have some great hair accessories I might just have to order for my niece when she gets a little older! This site has lots of great items from pet accessories to personalized baby blankets and onsies. I also love the monogrammed handbags, I am a big pink and green fan, so the one pictured at left is the one I would choose. But there are lots of color combinations, size and types of bags, and monogramming fonts and styles!

But my favorite thing that this site does is the unique, one of a kind jewelery pieces. They have some amazing items, like their line of photo jewelry. I had the pleasure of picking the Hand Stamped Mommy Silver Necklace. The photo on the website is pictured at below…Especially since this is my first review, I was very excited to get my necklace in the mail. It arrived quickly, shipped via the United States Postal Service Priority Mail. Lauren Nicole Gifts gets HUGE bonus points from me for shipping USPS, as we are a one income family and our sole provider is a US Postal employee. So we are very happy to see anyone who ships USPS!

When I opened the box, the product was in a plastic bag, to protect it from any wet weather or mishaps. Inside the bag the item was beautifully packaged in a light pink organza bag and inside the bag was a silver tin with a lovely upholstered top. Inside was my necklace.

I LOVE it! Since having Eli last year, and knowing he was my last child, I have been looking at many different “mother” pieces. I am definitely a stay at home, yoga pant or jeans wearing soccer mom. So I find this piece to be more my style than most of the stuff out there. Beautiful and practical for everyday wear. The charm was hand stamped with all four of the boyz names, and the spacing was done beautifully. When I look at it I see my sons names making a complete perfect circle, exactly how I feel about them! The beads are 6mm Swarovski crystal beads that are the boyz birthstones. I was so excited to see all the colors together!

When looking at the chain on the website I was a bit concerned it was going to be almost reminiscent of a dog tag ball chain, but when I received the item that was my biggest surprise! It is very petite and lovely, not at all like what I had pictured in my head. It is definitely a light silver chain, as opposed to the heavy steel darker color I was thinking. In fact, the whole piece is a beautiful light silver.

I have gotten a lot of compliments on the necklace already in my typical mommy travels. The ladies at the grocery store loved it, as did the moms at the little league game! My husband loves that I like a piece enough to actually wear it daily, as opposed to only on a Sunday for church. And the boyz like picking out their names or their bead color while sitting on my lap. I find myself reaching down and fiddling with it and smiling. Thank you Lauren Nicole Gifts!

But not only has Lauren Nicole Gifts given me a Hand Stamped Mommy Silver Necklace, they have graciously agreed to give one away to one of my readers! Especially since this is my first giveaway, please be careful to read all of the instructions for entry into the giveaway!
