Christmas trees and holly make everything so jolly, and so do orchids, cyclamen, petite pine trees, Christmas cactus, poinsettias, and more! Although not all of them are named in the traditional Christmas songs, these holiday plants are in almost every grocery store this time of year. Plants make a great grab-n-go gift, suitable for everyone.

If you’re planning on giving plants as gifts this holiday season, or will be displaying them in your home, you’ll love these simple and festive ideas!

1. Potted Poinsettias

Choose colorful and festive pots. Line them up along the mantle. Arrange around a hearth or create a centerpiece for the table. 

2. Orchids

Line 3 of them in a white tray and tie with green felt bow, or fill with small single-color ornaments.

3. Small Pine Trees

These gems look so festive —decorate each in Santa hats and place together in a row. Or simply decorate each one up as a mini Christmas tree with assorted themes. These can be planted by the recipient when the holidays are over to enjoy for many Christmases to come!

4. Cyclamen

Place in a silver mirrored bowl topped with small silver bells and shiny ornaments.

5. Christmas Cactus or Thanksgiving Cactus

Everyone will appreciate receiving a Christmas or Thanksgiving cactus!

Place one of these beauties in a large red wooden bowl set atop a pedestal, or simply wrap the pot with a bow or other holiday decorations for a truly standout gift!

6. Christmas Peppers

Once more popular than poinsettias, the Christmas pepper plant is a chili pepper that can be grown as an indoor annual. With the colorful peppers against green leaves and the fact that the peppers are shaped a bit like Christmas lights, these plants make for quite the Christmassy display. Tie with a bow and watch their faces light up!
