The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to start shopping for gift to give to your friends and family. While there’s no shame in gifting baked goods or flowers, there’s something extra special about Christmas house plants. Unlike a typical floral arrangement or a selection of your favorite cookies, house plants last way longer and have so many additional benefits. At Bloombox Club, we’ve put together a curated assortment of holiday plants and bundles that are not only show-stoppers but are also a very thoughtful gesture that has the potential to improve well-being.
The Mini Christmas Tree:
It goes without saying that a miniature Christmas tree is the cutest way to bring joy this holiday season. Tabletop Christmas tree gifts are perfect for friends, family, coworkers, and even acquaintances. A small Christmas tree is just the right thing to brighten up someone’s holiday and make a home feel like a winter wonderland.
The Blue Spruce offers that classic Christmas tree look because of its shape and colour. The branches are known to be stiff making them strong enough to hold all your favorite ornaments. A Blue Spruce Christmas tree is also an amazing gift as it’s known for its lovely smell that it will continue to give all year round. This timeless gift has been used for centuries during the holiday season. It’s important to note that the Blue Spruce is unique in colour pairing well with a blue and white wintry theme.

The Prickly Pine is another extremely popular miniature Christmas tree. With a fresh pine scent and sturdy lush branches, this option is definitely a festive holiday gift.
