There’s nothing more fun then prepping your home for the holidays. You put on some festive music, make some treats and break out the tinsel! But like any type of home decor, everyone has their taste and style.

Some like flashy accents, others like to go a more subtle route. And one of the biggest trends this year is to go the DIY route and make your own decorations. Think less paper chain garland and more natural materials like sticks, leafs and even plants.

Besides the Christmas tree, one of the most traditional decorative elements is the holiday wreath. Whether hung on a front door or above the mantel, it’s a statement piece that’s low maintenance.

And because here at Gifts, we always like take the “out of the box” approach, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite alternative wreath options for those of you looking to spice things up this year. Enjoy and drink some eggnog for me!
