As a gardener, I love to get holiday gifts that reflect my love of, well… gardens! In fact, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love to get a plant gift during the holiday season. Rather than be one of those people who just pick up a boring houseplant at the grocery store on the way to the party, (you know who you are!) this year put some thought into creating some Christmas plant gift projects. We have some great ideas for how to take some simple plant material and turn it into a thoughtful, one of a kind gift, that keeps on giving.
DIY Christmas Plant Gift Ideas
Check out this paperwhite project from ‘Domaphile‘. These paperwhites in mason jars would make such cute hostess Christmas plant gifts!
Our next project is a simple burlap paperwhite pot from ‘Maya Made‘… So easy, but the burlap pot wrap puts in that extra touch! The cool thing about homemade Christmas gift plants is that you give them even if they are not mature. The wrapping and presentation is everything!
From the community at ‘Home Depot‘ learn to make these amazing mini rosemary topiaries. A fast plant gift project, and who wouldn’t want to be elbows deep in rosemary for an afternoon? The gifts are just a bonus!
More DIY rosemary topiaries from ‘City Farmhouse‘. Rosemary is a perfect Christmas plant gift because it has everything! It’s evergreen, it has needles like Christmas trees, and it has amazing scent! Oh, and if you run a little short in the kitchen, just snip some off for the roast beef!
From ‘Lolly Jane‘, we love these chalk paint DIY succulent pots… You could do these homemade gift plant projects in white, and wrap with a blue or silver Christmas ribbon.
Here is an easy gift plant idea… pot up small transplants of aromatic herbs in recycled cans, then wrap with wide burlap ribbon in holiday style… From ‘Celebrate Magazine‘.
From ‘Gardenista‘, another easy way to take a simple Christmas plant gift, and dress up the delivery… And you probably already have all the supplies!
Lastly, another Christmas plant wrap idea, from ‘Segreto‘…
