There’s something about a fresh wreath with a red ribbon on it that just warms my heart. It says family, warmth, and Christmas to me! I’ve discovered over the years the BEST spot from which to order fresh wreaths — Bessey Ridge Wreaths in Maine.  Bessey Ridge is a small family-owned business and their products are simply amazing! I’ve sent them as gifts to family and friends, and will continue to do so!

This “Maine Woods Wreath” from Bessey Ridge is just $36 with FREE shipping! Their site describes it as “a 24” double-sided balsam fir wreath decorated with pine, cedar, pine cones, holly berries and an elegant hand-tied wire edged floral bow in your choice of red velvet or tartan plaid.” Shipping begins the Monday after Thanksgiving.

Place your wreath order by December 15th and you’ll be entered to win 15 lbs. of FRESH LIVE MAINE LOBSTER shipped directly to you. Drawing will be on December 16, 2010!

In addition to Christmas wreaths, they have centerpieces and Hanukkah wreaths too! You (and your gift recipients) won’t be disappointed.

December is going to sneak up on you before you know it… Order your amazingly fresh holiday wreaths NOW! Go ahead. Go get your address book (iPhone, Blackberry, wherever you keep that important inf0). I’ll wait… Ok, got it? Now, go get your credit card. Oh, you already know that number? Fabulous!

I first learned about Bessey Ridge Wreaths a few years ago from a friend who grew up in Maine. She gave me the head’s up that her extended family was starting their own wreath company. They used to hand-make these wreaths to be sold by L.L. Bean, and have since developed Bessey Ridge Wreaths.

Rest assured that your holiday wreaths from these folks will be amazing and they’ll knock the socks off your gift recipients! They’re so fresh and so fragrant, and they look like they cost a million bucks — but they don’t. If you order by November 14, their new Winter Elegance Christmas Wreath is just $34 and that INCLUDES shipping!

Seriously, you won’t find a flower arrangement that will look this good, smell this good, or last this long for even double this price! “The Winter Elegance Christmas Wreath is a 24” double-sided fragrant balsam fir wreath decorated with four sets of snow-tipped pine cones, frosted glass balls and two six-loop burgundy velvet bows.” They have several more Christmas wreaths to choose from.

Check out their Hanukkah Wreath and Balsam Centerpiece for even more great gift ideas! They even do custom wreaths!

And, when you place your order, know you’re supporting real people who take great pride in what they do. It’s a family tradition.
