Holiday Gifts that Last All Year

If you're looking for the one-size-fits-all holiday gift, think plants. And one plant in particular is the ideal winter holiday gift because of its ability to look like Christmas one minute, then like a regular houseplant the next.

We are talking about Norfolk Island pine, of course, a houseplant that can adopt the persona of festive holiday decor, then switch directions after the holidays to look like a beautiful houseplant the rest of the year. Such talent!

Here are a couple more reasons that Norfolk Island pines make holiday gift-giving sense.

Giving plants avoids food issues
Dietary stipulations, food allergies, and New Year’s Eve resolutions (what? No chocolate for a year?) make giving food for the holidays a dicey proposition. That’s why houseplants make the ideal gift.

Giving plants is a healthy life choice
Sharing your living and working spaces with living houseplants have been proven to be part of a healthy lifestyle. Plants are nurturing, improve production, decrease anxiety, and help cleanse the air of toxins. Seriously, no roommate will ever be as good for you as a plant.

Norfolk Island pines are holiday decor – until the holidays are over
Talk about quick change artists! If you give a Norfolk Island pine with holiday lights or a tiny garland to dress it up for the holidays, your gift recipient can undress the plant and enjoy it as decor for the rest of the year. It’s a gift that keeps giving every day of every month for the rest of the year.

Giving plants is easy
And here’s a sweet little holiday secret: in a holiday rife with busyness, giving houseplants is so easy. Just buy a Norfolk Island pine in a decorator pot and it’s an instant gift. Swath it in tissue paper, drop it into a gift bag, and voila!

Give these little trees as holiday gifts, hostess gifts, and takeaway gifts from your holiday get togethers. They are truly one-size-fits-all.
