Personalized Memories with Lauren Nicole Gifts…

lauren_nicole_gifts_review_2Mother’s Day is only a couple of weeks away! We are thrilled to bring you an up and coming product from Lauren Nicole Gifts. We love personalized gifts and this jewelry takes it to a whole new level.

Available in many shapes and sizes, Lauren Nicole Gifts’ handwriting jewelry has a plethora of gifting opportunities. Write a positive sentiment to your Mom, Dad, loved one, best friend in your own handwriting! This is also a great gift for husbands to give to their wife. Have him write a few short love lines and pick your favorite one… (this was mine!) Order jewelry to honor loved ones who have passed away by wearing a pendant with their handwriting from an old letter, card, journal, etc. Great for upcoming graduation and teacher gifts too! Even if you are not a fan of your own handwriting, you can use your favorite font to create a memorable gift!

The ordering process is easy and quick. Simply choose your pendant and chain size, then e-mail your artwork to be engraved. Artwork should be black on white paper with a clear contrast. We used a black gel pen on copy paper and created a file using a standard scanner. You can also use your ipad or iphone as long as the picture has sufficient contrast. The 7/8″ pendant shown above and at left has a 3 word maximum but if you can keep your letters/words a similar size, you can fit a couple more without losing quality.

Lauren Nicole Gifts has excellent customer service that responds quickly which is great if you need help with your artwork, a proof or request more details about your order. Our order for review arrived within one week and was packaged with a logo jewelry card and purple organza gift bag. Upgrading your shipping to priority will also get you an upgrade in packaging. Jewelry will be packaged in a gift box, while charms and chains will be packaged separately in organza gift bags.

We love the handwriting necklaces for everyday wear. Made of stainless steel, the pendant is substantial without feeling heavy and the engraving is clean and crisp. To clean the pendant, simply use a little soap and water and pat dry. Necklaces should not be worn in the shower, while swimming, etc. as the chemicals in the water may deteriorate the engraving over time.

At under $40, these pendants are perfect for an any occasion. If you are ordering in time for Mother’s Day, the last day to order is April 30, 2015. Check out their selection of jewelry, lockets, gifts and more!
