I am especially partial to the children's name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace for our birthdays many moons ago.  They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin.  🙂 — Happy birthday Caryn & Carole!

THE Best Bridesmaid Gift – A Beautiful Waterford Ring Holder

Best Bridesmaid Gifts Waterford Ring Holders

We know brides obsess over the perfect bridesmaid gifts.  Personally, we don't get it.  In our ever so humble opinion, there is but one bridesmaid gift option. We thought so many moons years ago and have never wavered from that view since.  Nothing beats a Waterford Ring Holder.  I gave one to each of my bridesmaids and to this day  they continue to grace the homes of each and every one of them.

My personal favorite is the classic heart ring holder but really, you cannot go wrong with any of them.  Priced from $39.00 to $75.00 these ring holders are so worth it – they are beautiful, timeless, practical, and meaningful.

Just thought you should know … when originally, asked to write an article about Waterford from our partners over at eAccountable, we jumped at the idea because as we have indicated innumerable times, we love the products and the company and unlike most of the hundreds of emails that come across our  desks every day, we can wholeheartedly endorse anything and everything Waterford.

One last thought — if your wedding has already come and gone, a stunning Waterford ring holder makes for a lovely anniversary gift or holiday gift, too.

Party Hearty!
