Relief for family, holiday gift-giving decisions

A few years ago, my girlfriend sent us a "Fresh Balsam Jingle Bell Wreath by Valerie" offered by QVC.  Since we had an artificial tree, we hung the wreath inside as part of our decor, and the smell of evergreen trees filled the air.  It was WONDERFUL!  One of the favorite gifts we've ever received.

Since then, we've made it part of our family TRADITION to send wreaths to out-of-town relatives (mother/mother-in-law, sister/sister-in law, brother/brother-in-laws, niece/nephews, etc.)  Our older children also "chip in" and contribute to the expense.  The out-of-town relatives now look forward to receiving their wreaths.  Last year, we sent a fresh evergreen candle centerpiece for our niece and nephew's family.  It has simplified our gift-giving, we have saved time shopping, wrapping, and going to the mail service.  They're happy, we're happy.  It's a win-win.

We did purchase from another online company last year and one recipient said the product was falling apart when delivered.  I plan to stick with QVC now.  

I highly recommend checking out QVC for the "Fresh Balsam Jingle Bell Wreath by Valerie" along with their other time-saving, quality, holiday offerings.  Be sure to notice the variety of SHIPPING dates.
