The floral and greenery base of the rather traditional-looking wreath is made of hellebore flowers; hedera berries; and laurus, lingonberry, and blueberry stems, as well as what the website promises are "hand-curled" eucalyptus leaves. For that price, we're imagining that magical elves' fingers and maybe a forest fairy or two did the curling. The flower head of one of the hellebores is stuffed with 22 loose diamonds — let's hope nobody sneezes. Finnish floral designer Pasi Jokinen-Carter, who is the director of Scandinavian florist Flor Unikon Flowers in London, designed the wreath. Jokinen-Carter has reportedly created arrangements for European royals, CEOs, designers and film and television production companies, so presumably VeryFirstTo.com will be hitting up his Rolodex for potential buyers.

Personally, I like to purchase my wreath from the stand outside our local park: The money benefits the Boy Scouts, and it makes me feel good to donate a little something at Christmastime. And whoever buys this wreath will also be giving a little something (emphasis on little). For each one sold, a donation of $1,600 will go to the Prince's Trust, a British charity for disadvantaged youth—that's .03 percent of the cost. I guess they were sticking with the old saying, "It's the thought that counts."
