Guide Review - Vickerman Co. Mixed Country Pine Wreath with Lights
Don't let the "country" moniker dissuade you from buying this wreath if you happen to be a city dweller. This is one fine-looking wreath, and with Vickerman's nearly 70-year history backing it, you know you're getting a quality product. Who knows -- maybe your grandparents or great-grandparents owned a wreath or tree by Vickerman. That's the one that your grabby sister snatched up before she gave you the box of yellowed paper holiday tablecloths and napkins.
Having owned a few less-well-made holiday wreaths, I suggest making the "splurge," which at well under $100 is definitely worth the investment.
Quite simply, Vickerman's wreath looks good, and every time you look at it, you get a good feeling.
As an added thought: this would make a wonderful gift for a recently married couple, someone who's moved into a new home, or someone who's had to downsize recently because of the economy and move into a different home or living arrangement. A wreath like this on their door should instantly boost their spirits.
