Despite our best efforts, few of us have our holiday shopping finished until the last minute. Whether we’ve been busy or simply uninspired, some people on our lists get left until the last minute. This situation can be stressful if we allow it to be, but it can also be an opportunity to get creative.
Here at Flower Works, we’re all about the second route. The holidays should ultimately be a time of enjoyment and togetherness, not stress and worry. So, to help make sure you have the space to relax, we’ve assembled some of our favorite ideas for last-minute gifts, so you don’t have to wrack your brain to find that special gift.
Small, low-maintenance plants such as air plants and succulents make fantastic last-minute gifts. They provide the welcome greenery of any other plant but without the hassle and time commitment. These options also have little to no pollen, meaning the allergy-sufferer on your list can still benefit.
There are lots of options when it comes to cute, illustrated guides to popular topics. Many of these books are informational and attractive and make a great addition to a side table or a coffee table when they aren’t in use. Consider what your loved one likes to do, and try to find a book that matches. We particularly like the ones that cover plants and gardening, but we might be a tad biased. Believe us when we say you can find one for any interest.
Flowers are decadent. Most people don’t adorn their home in full flower arrangements all year long, making it feel extra special when it does happen. Providing a handmade, unique centerpiece for a loved one can be an amazing present for the holiday season. It will make their home seem more festive and warmer, and they will certainly look at it more than the socks or candles they’ll never use.
Sometimes, the pot is the most exciting part of the plant. With so many unique designs, shapes, and colors, you’re sure to find a small potted plant that will look great in your loved one’s home. In addition, potted plants can thrive for a long time with the proper care, so you provide the recipient with a gift that they will enjoy all year.
Fresh, well-made holiday wreaths are hard to come by. But, if you need a last-minute gift for a host or family member, a wreath is a great option. Not only will it help to make their home look festive, but it also smells amazing and adds another layer of festive cheer to the holiday season.
If your loved one is interested in plants, gardening, or any other holiday, consider buying them supplies. For the plant and garden lover, consider:
Items like these may not be usable right away, but they are certainly appreciated and will not be returned on Boxing Day.
