Are you looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones this Christmas season? Can’t think of anything unique to wrap in a ribbon and bow? How about a succulent plant? Have you ever wondered why these are becoming popular souvenirs during weddings, birthdays, baptisms, and other occasions?
It can be quite tiring to find the perfect gift for our loved ones this holiday season. As much as we want to give what they truly want—gadgets, cars, watches—these are all too expensive and might not be practical for us to give as gifts. A succulent plant, however, is something unique and truly special. You can even customize the design and the combination of plants of the succulents.
CAL Farms’ Beautiful 36 of 2” Assorted Succulents, for example, make for the ideal party favor, souvenir, or gift. This mix of succulents will surely be appreciated by anyone who receives it. This holiday season, it is particularly pleasing to receive something different from what we normally get from our friends and family.
Unique and interesting
When was the last time someone gave you an actual living thing? Succulent plants make for an excellent gift because it is unique and interesting. No one else would have thought of giving someone a plant to take care of. Maybe a dog is a common gift between boyfriends and girlfriends, but a plant is something meaningful—you have to keep it alive and store-bought dog food won’t cut it. Sure, succulents are low-maintenance plants, but there is still extra effort in taking care of it.
Unknown to many, succulents can be quite romantic, too. Forget the usual bouquet of red and pink roses, succulent plants are actual living things that may or may not speak about how someone feels for you. There are many succulent plants that mean romance and love. The rosettes, for example, are actually some of the most beautiful succulents we’ve seen. It will brighten anyone’s day.
Do you know that succulent plants are actually beneficial to the health? Like other plants, succulents give off oxygen, making it easier for those around it to breathe. Air is definitely a little better with succulent plants around. This trait shows how much you care about the person you’re giving this gift to. The thought behind the gift can be interpreted as wanting for that gift receiver to live healthier and stronger.
Who else will give anyone succulent plants for gifts? These are not exactly the most common gift out there. Most of the time, people will gift books, shirts, bags, etc. as Christmas gifts. Succulent plants show your creativity—it shows people that you actually thought about who the succulents will go to. Can you imagine giving succulent plants to someone who neither has the time nor the inclination to take care of them?
This holiday season, make sure you’re giving away something that everyone can appreciate. It’s the season of sharing, after all, and succulent plants are one of the best things to share this Christmas.
