If you have a green thumb, here is a super-cheap-but-very-impressive idea for next year.
In early spring, most discount stores and nurseries offer tiny houseplants for 99-cents. Figure out how many botanical gifts you’ll need for next Christmas and that’s how many plants you’ll buy on sale. Grow them out at home and start shopping garage sales and thrift stores for unique pots, keeping in mind the style preferences of the people who will receive these plants. By September, they should be a respectable size to transplant into the nice pots. Add some moss and a few ornaments and you’ll have a gift that looks like something you’d pay $40-$60 for at a flower shop.
Here are the planters available at OLA.
