The spirit of Christmas has arrived, with the beginning of December and we are feeling the jingle bells ringing already and we’re sure, you are too! Christmas always adds a cheery vibe to the aura and to be honest, it’ a great time to be alive. Although Christmas is primarily for celebrating the birth of Jesus, the purpose of these festivals really is to bring families together to celebrate their togetherness and make incredible memories.
At such Christmas gatherings, when family members arrive to have a great time together, the dilemma that arises every year is; gifts. For homes, the greatest gift could be something that enhances its decor. Experimenting with this idea, this Christmas you can give your loved ones some indoor plants or just gift any plant which can make their homes prettier. To make it even better, you can also gift air-purifying indoor plants that don’t only look good but also remove a lot of intoxicants from the air to generate more pure and fresh air.
A poinsettia is a very traditional Christmas plant. It’s said that the red coloured leaves of the plant represent the blood of Jesus. In spite of being a holy plant, the poinsettia also acts as an air purifier by eliminating formaldehyde from the air. It indeed is an angelic plant and is one of the best gift plants for Christmas.
Araucaria is used as a Christmas tree to decorate houses for the whole Christmas holiday. According to tradition, bringing and decorating the tree depicts everlasting life with God. Araucaria is one of the Christmas spirits and along with its magnificent appearance; it has more benefits to it, one of them being its air-purifying quality. Therefore, keeping a Christmas tree in your home is traditional as well as beneficial.
If you like to gift flowers then there’s nothing better than gifting them with their roots. Yeah! You can gift flower pots which will never die and will also add beauty to the house. Some flower plants that you can gift to your loved ones on Christmas or any other such occasions are-
The flower of petunia has more than 20 species and they look really vibrant. These flowers come in different colours, like Violet, Pink, Red, Shades of pink & white, Yellow & white and much more. You will find a lot of varieties when it comes to petunia. They are beautiful flowers that will make your loved ones happy as soon as you gift them.
The queen of flowers, the rose is the most common flower to be gifted in all forms; buds, bouquets, and bunches but it’s sad that in all of these forms, roses end up dying. Gifting rose plants will prevent this from happening and the one who receives the gift will be able to grow more roses.
The Gerberas are from the family of Daisy and Sunflower. These come in a huge palette of colours and look absolutely beautiful when kept in the garden amidst all the other beautiful plants. So, you can gift gerbera plants instead of the bouquet.
Another plant that you can add to your list of “green Christmas gifts” is Boston Fern. A bunch of Boston fern’s tiny leaves looks beautiful when placed in a corner in your bedroom, study or living room.

As this green décor will grow bigger, your room will also look lovelier than ever.
Receiving these plants as gifts will definitely brighten up the faces of your loved ones. So this Christmas, become the eco-friendly Santa for your family and friends. Spread the greenery!
