Wreaths are an iconic Christmas decoration, steeped in tradition and meaning.

Did you know, the Advent wreath was first used by the Lutherans in Germany, back in the 16th century?

Fast forward 500 years and the decoration is still heavily associated with Christmas today. Wreaths are used to celebrate the season, signal good tidings to other people in the neighbourhood, and to welcome guests into the home.

Today, there are unlimited options for wreaths. A myriad of colours, textures, styles and ornamentations. Need a little help navigating through them all? Try one of our suggestions below:
