A holiday wreath is a seasonal staple that makes any home more festive. Not only is it the first thing guest's see when they are welcomed into your home, it's also something that will bring a smile to your face after a long day at the office. 

When choosing the right wreath for you, there two things to consider: For those who love the fresh smell that accompanies the holiday arrangement, a natural option may be for you.

Of course, there’s several choices in-between, including Balsam, Berry, and lighted varieties.

To help you pick out the most beautiful option from a wide array of wreaths, we narrowed down the best ones to buy this year.

    Best Overall Wreath: National Tree Company Crestwood Spruce

     This wreath has an attractive, pre-lit design that works perfectly for indoor or outdoor displays, making it an all-around favorite.

    While this wreath is one of the most affordable ones on our list, it doesn’t compromise quality. Each Crestwood Spruce Wreath comes trimmed with red berries, pinescones, and glitter, so you won’t have to invest extra effort in the decorating to make it match your holiday decor.

    Customers rave about how good the garland looks on your door, wall, or window for the entire duration of the season. According to them, “it looks good just about anywhere.” However, they do note this wreath does need to be plugged into an electrical outlet, so be sure to fit that into your display plans.

    Best Artificial Wreath: Pure Garden Round

    If you prefer an artificial pick, here’s the best one of its kind. This all-season wreath is made from 320 artificial leaves and is embellished with outdoor elements to make it look just like the real thing! It can be hung both indoors or out, and looks good above a mantle, in your entryway, or, in the most attention grabbing places of them all — the front door!

    Measuring 15 inches in diameter, it’s covered in an ultraviolet resistant plastic and backed up by a durable iron frame, so you can almost guarantee it will stay green for years with little maintenance involved. Which, TBH, is the main reason we love this option.

    Best Authentic Wreath: Flora Decor Preserved Garden Boxwood

    For those who love the look and feel of a REAL holiday garland, here’s another buy that boasts rave reviews from customers. The Garden Boxwood Wreath has the classic design of the accent you grew up with. However, it has been preserved and dyed with synthetic ingredients to make it last much longer than you’re used to — which is something we definitely won’t complain about!

    With a traditional look, it’s bound to be a wonderful addition to any home, impressing guests every time they step through the door. Although there are many wonderful things to be said, the reviews do recommend keeping it in direct sunlight and watered to maintain its natural integrity for days to come.

    Want to skip all the floral and fauna? Then a felt wreath is a cozy option that does the job. This handmade wreath is done in blush and off white hues so it can actually stay hung from Thanksgiving through the New Year. At 12" in diameter it's a bit small so it might work better on the inside of a window as opposed to a big entry door. 

    Besides, looking great these wreaths are made by people in Nepal and for each wreath that gets sold a commission goes back to their village, helping them rebuild from the 2015 earthquake.
