Amazing Tips on How to Ship Wreaths


Wreaths have become more than just holiday decorations. Today, fresh wreaths made of pine boughs, ivy, eucalyptus sprays, box hedge stems,  ferns, and other scented foliage are displayed in homes as all-occasion decors and air fresheners.

Other wreaths are made of fresh or preserved blooms that make perfect gifts for birthdays, anniversaries or house blessings, in lieu of a bouquet or a floral arrangement.

Because of its shape, a wreath can easily be placed in a box and shipped or sent via mail. Most home supplies stores sell boxes specifically designed for wreaths.

Double packing the wreath box inside a larger shipping box is the best way to go as it provides ultimate protection and safety during shipping. Here are some helpful tips on how to ship wreaths:

Get an appropriately-sized wreath box from a home supply or decorating store. Wrap the wreath in a layer of tissue paper and place it inside the wreath box. Ensure that the wreath will not shift around the box during transit by filling empty spaces with packing materials such as shredded paper or packing peanuts. Close the box and seal it with packing tape.

Layer the bottom of a shipping box with some packaging peanuts. Place the wreath box inside the shipping box. Fill the sides and top of the box with more packaging materials to ensure that the content will not move around during the rigorous shipping process.

Close the box and seal with packaging tape. Tape the bottom flaps and corners of the box as well for added protection.

Attach the recipient’s address and label the package with “fragile” or “delicate.”

Take the package to your local post office or shipping company.

If shipping a wreath with fresh flowers, choose a faster shipping speed such as overnight delivery.
