The symbolism of a wreath:

It’s circular shape represents eternity, for it has no beginning and no end. From a christian religious perspective, it represents an unending circle of life. The evergreen, used in making Christmas wreathes, symbolizes growth and everlasting life.

Most commonly in English speaking countries it is an decoration for a holiday or season. In some countries it is used in ceremonies.

Harvest wreaths can be traced back in European countries to ancient times where they were used for spiritual beliefs. In ancient Greek wheat or other harvested plants were used and they were hung year round because it was a sacred amulet (something that gives protection).

A housewarming gift as a wreath expresses a blessing to the new home.

Norse, German and Polish people give wreaths to newlyweds. Many were made with heather the symbol of devotion and protection. They were also very popular in the Victorian Era made with many flowers each symbolizing something different.
