Wreaths are so beautiful- and they are one of the most cherished holiday decorations next to the Christmas tree. Residents from around the world use wreaths as a way of symbolising strength. Members of the Lutheran Church use lighted wreaths to symbolise the passage of the 4 weeks of Advent. Yes indeed- wreaths hold many special meanings and purposes, and they can be dated all the way back to the 16th century. However, despite the popularity of these garlands- they can be very difficult to find at an affordable price, both during and beyond the Christmas season. But don’t fret. It is still entirely possible to find discount Christmas wreaths to suit your needs. You just have to know where to look!
Where to Find Discount Christmas Wreaths to Suit Your Needs
Thrift Shops- I have been donating and buying from Thrift Shops all my life. People don’t want their meaningful possessions to be tossed away just because they have to move or downsize. They want their items to go to someone else who will love them just as much as they do. Thus, you can always find wonderful items of both new and vintage quality at stores like the Salvation Army, Sally Ann, or the Hospice Society. Most thrift shops have a special section for holiday treasures as well, and you can often find wreaths there for $3 or less. 🙂
Five-and-ten Cent Stores- These places often get a bad rep for selling poorly made products. But I can tell you from past experience that this is not always the case! I have purchased many wreathes from dime stores that are of gorgeous design and have lasted for over 5 years. So long as you avoid the tinsel style wreaths and spring for the artificial pine needles- you can get a great new long lasting wreath for 5 or 8 dollars!
Craft Fairs- Now, sales at craft fairs may not be considered discount sales because crafters must sell their products for more than the cost of the materials in order to make a living. However, you do not have to worry about tax charges at craft fairs, so if you find a wreath for $10 the total cost will be exactly as is- $10. Crafts people make some truly gorgeous items which are always well worth the money, and I have found that wreaths there range anywhere from $5-$20 depending on the size. And considering these wreaths are made by hand- those costs are really decent!
Grocery store Clearance Sections- It can take several months for large retail brands to sell-out of their many Christmas decorations after the holidays are over. Especially there smaller items like wreaths and tree ornaments. And as such they are forced to bring down the prices to crazy low amounts in order to start selling the next seasonal products. (Valentine’s Day, Easter etc.) I personally have found Christmas wreaths at grocery stores during the middle of March- and on rare occasions the beginning of April! And by that time these wreaths are marked all the way down to $2. So keep your eyes peeled!
Amazon Clearance Listings- I’ll be honest with you here. Most of the wreaths found online are high-end items that come pre-lit with warranties and everything. So the discount listings may not be all that much lower than the original sale prices. And if they are- they won’t be high quality. But if you’re lucky you can find a great wreath for under $30. I have seen a few pop-up for less though- just check out my list at the bottom! 🙂
Now, unfortunately I cannot be with you in person while you search your local shops for Christmas wreaths. But I can however, point out some decently priced wreaths that I have discovered online. You won’t get as much bang for your buck as you would from the other options- but it’s the best I can do!
Here is the list!
Price: + CDN$ 5.54 shipping
As you can plainly see this wreath is highly affordable. It isn’t high-end quality, but it has a fairly realistic appearance considering it is made from PVC plastic. The weathered snow is a nice touch for sure. 🙂 So if you are having trouble finding a wreath like this in your home-town you can give this one a try!
+ CDN$ 4.88 shipping
Strangely enough, this wreath is a bit more expensive than the one listed above it. I say this is strange because although the wreath is listed as ‘pine’ it looks an awful lot like a tinsel wreath to me… the bow is pretty, but as a whole this decoration is definitely not made to last. If you are really desperate for a wreath however it may be an option for you.
Price: + CDN$ 22.06 shipping
This wreath has been made to look like the original one(s) that was decorated with naturally growing items. The decorations upon it are wooden and the wreath is made of artificial pine. Not the cheapest wreath out there, but it is certainly much higher in quality!

I have to admit that I’m a tad attached to this particular wreath. I have always had a place in my heart for gold colour schemes as they make me envision heaven which intern makes me think of absolute peace. The overall design is nice and simple too. Perfect for a quiet tasteful Christmas, and worth checking out if you cannot find a wreath locally. (In my humble opinion that is).
