5 plants to gift at Christmas


Flowers are wonderful gestures. Whether it's a bouquet of romantic roses, flourishing lilies or an orchid, flowers are up there in the 'safe gift' category along with chocolates and bath smellies.

However, this Christmas, why not give a botanical gift with a unique twist? Instead of swinging by the supermarket to pick up a standard bouquet of flowers, think ahead and choose from a selection of stunning blooms delivered straight to your recipient's door by Bloom & Wild.

To make it easy for you, we've picked five plants which would make perfect gestures this Christmas. And you even have the chance of winning a gift from Bloom & Wild at the bottom of this post!

1. Christmas Tree

Bloom & Wild Scandi Christmas Tree

I'm not asking you to fill your loved one's living room with a big spruce! This Scandi-style tree is perfect for those with a minimalist aesthetic, or those with smaller homes where a big tree just isn't practical. Decorate with pretty paper pom poms provided.

The Scandi Tree, £27

2. White Roses

Bloom & Wild Celeste

White roses have such a winteriness about them. These white-as-snow petals look so festive when accompanied by the wooden star-shaped container, and would look perfect on a windowsill, mantlepiece or dining room table.

The Celeste, £30

3. Poinsettias

Bloom & Wild Poinsettias

I recently wrote about the beauty of the traditional Christmas Poinsettia here. Bloom & Wild offer a trio of mini Poinsettias in this typical red hue, which brings a touch of festivity to any environment in an instant.

The Poinsettia, £28

4. Olive Tree

Bloom & Wild Ruby Olive Tree

For centuries, olive trees have been a symbol of peace and friendship, making them ideal Christmas gifts. This particular tree comes sprinkled with fairy lights and finished off with a bright red bow around its stem - no gift wrap required!

The Ruby, £60

5. Azaleas

Bloom & Wild Gabrielle azaeleas

Another white-bloomed plant, has a prettiness that will make your giftee swoon. It arrives through the door with a white pop up pot to complement the flowers, and provides plenty of enjoyment for weeks to come. 

The Gabrielle, £28
