  • The best Christmas wreaths make a warm, welcoming statement that brims with festive cheer. We’ve rounded up a selection of the ones we think you’ll love.

    It never feels like the festive season has arrived until the Christmas tree is up and glowing with twinkly lights and decorations, the mantlepiece is crowded with old family snow globes and clay Santas, and of course, the finishing touch is placed upon the door – the wreath.

    Like stocking up on Christmas wrapping paper and ordering your Christmas food hamper, decorating your home with a Christmas wreath is a festive moment to savour.

    A German tradition that dates back to the 16th century, Christmas wreaths were traditionally used to signify the yuletide countdown with candles and fresh green clippings.

    1. Frosted Berry Lighted Wreath

    This pre-lit wreath is exactly what we think of when we picture a classic Christmas wreath. Adorned with white berries, eucalyptus, and pinecones, this artificial piece will last for many Christmasses to come so it’s pretty good value despite the price tag. It has 50 soft white LED lights and 210 tips with a flocked finish for the perfect wintery look. It also looks convincingly real.

    The reviews are good too. ‘Was concerned it wouldn’t be big enough or filled out with enough decorations as it was much cheaper than wreaths in the shops. Absolutely delighted. It’s huge and plenty of decorations on it,’ wrote one customer.

    Another added: ‘Looked lovely over this Christmas and the postman said it was once of the nicest he had seen.’

    There are only two reviews but they’re both full of praise for this unusual contemportary Christmas wreath. ‘Sparkling and a little bit different,’ wrote one happy customer. ‘I’ve never seen a Christmas wreath quite like this one. It’s gorgeous and I’m just glad we ordered it as soon as the stock arrived. It’s also a really good size. Can’t wait to put it up.’
