Giving Plants Says Happy Holidays!
There is no time is better than the Christmas and Winter Holidays to give a gift plant. Plants liven up a room, decorate a table, greet guests at the front door. What better gift can adds so much festivity and cheer? Plus a growing plant will last through the new year!
When giving a gift plant for the holidays, the right plant can make the difference between festive and frustrating. Consider the lifestyle and preferences of the recipient.
GIFT PLANT TIPS: These tips can help you give a gift that is just right.
Make sure that they will be home for delivery. Especially in cold weather, leaving the plant gift outdoors can severely damage or even kill the plant.
Do not stress if your budget doesn't allow a large plant. A small burst of color on a side table or bathroom can add a lively and much appreciated element to the overall holiday scheme.
If you are visiting a friend or family member, whether as a houseguest or party guest, send a gift in advance of your visit. It will tell your guest that you are looking forward to your time with them and that you appreciate their generosity.
Send a gift plant to friends and family who are housebound, or have had especially bad years. The gesture of cheer can brighten their moods and provide a sense of comfort.
If your recipient has a favorite flowering or green plant, don’t hesitate to send it just because it isn’t traditionally holiday. Any beautiful, long lasting gift plant will be enjoyed throughout the season and into the long cold days ahead.
Poinsettias, amaryllis, Christmas cactus and small evergreens are traditional choices for holiday gift giving because they add so much color and thrive during the winter months.
Send a personalized gift message. Some ideas include:
-We look forward to sharing the holidays with you...
-May you find peace and kindness this holiday season
-Festive color for those cold days ahead!
-Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
-Ring in the new! With loving best wishes for a happy New Year!
-Cheers to a luck and love in the year ahead.
