This wreath was a gift to my sister in CA (I'm in IL) and when she just received it she called to say how thrilled she is and that it's big and thick and fresh (moist!) and beautiful and smells wonderful! So although I've not personally viewed it, it does sound like it's what I'd hoped/expected it to be - except... no Cardinal bird at the bottom. :( We both love Cardinals so I was a bit disappointed it was missing, also because that among the reasons I chose this specific weath. And, be aware, shipping (in this case anyway) took FOREVER. I ordered it Dec. 9, it arrived late today, Dec. 20 - yikes, 11 days. I was so worried it'd be a goner! Original delivery date per UPS tracking was Dec. 17, so I don't know what happened, but thankfully it did arrive in very good shape and my sister is delighted. Which is, afterall, what matters most! Thanks Overstock and Merry Christmas to all!
I sent several of these to families before Christmas. I saw one on my daughter's door, and it was lovely - and she loved it also. Full, fresh, and tastefully decorated with ribbon, pine cones, and berries. I will be sending them again this year.

The wreath was dried to the extent needles were falling off of it. The ribbon was nice - but it only had one "tail" (vs two). Additionally - the pinecones were very small and hard to see even with the greenery pushed back from them. This wreath had the potential of being a very nice wreath - but quality control / quality assurance appears to have been lacking - and environmental controls (or lack thereof) may have led to the premature needle falloff (which commenced the minute it was taken from the box).
The wreath arrived quickly and was reported to be very fragrant. It hung on the door even through high winds and snow and looked good in the picture that was shared with me; might buy one again next year, as I have difficulty buying gifts for people that have just about everything.
This Christmas is the second year I ordered a wreath from Overstock. Both times I sent to Austin, TX so relatives could enjoy the Maine greenery. Both years they reported that the wreaths were absolutely beautiful and fresh. They were very pleased.
Sent this to my son for Christmas since he is so far from home. It arrived on-time, was fresh, fragrant and beautiful according to my son. It included the hardware to hang the wreath on his front door as well. I was told it was much nicer than a competitor's wreath on a certain popular TV shopping channel. I used to send the "other" wreath every year. This is the one I will be sending from now on.
I received my Maine Balsam wreath perfectly packaged and so fresh. My husband is from Maine and insists on getting a Maine Balsam product every year. I have paid more than double in the past for wreaths that were not as impressive as this one. The wreath looks just like the picture, very full. The smell is heavenly. You can't go wrong with this product!
The wreath was packaged well, very fresh and very beautiful. The fresh pine fragrance sent me into orbit while preparing it for hanging and has not subsided. It continues to make a statement on our front door. The workmanship was top notch and I was so very delighted that the wreath hanger and wire loop attachment were discovered in the package. All we had to do was to hang it on the door.I highly recommend this wreath to everyone for the next Christmas Holiday!
