New Home Gifts
Nothing adds character and life to a home like a tree or plant. Not only do plants help to keep the air in a home fresh, they also boast many health benefits like improving air quality and clearing harmful toxins from the air. Plants also bring a burst of colour to any living space and can transform a house into a home.
One of the reasons plants are traditionally given as housewarming presents is that they figuratively warm the home. For that reason, we think a potted tree or plant would make an excellent gift. We have a selection of unusual trees for you to choose from, including lemon trees, twisted olive trees and kiwi fruit vines.
Much of the activity in a home is centred around the kitchen table, and the kitchen is thought to be the hub of the home, with guests spending time there as well. One of our grape vine plants would be a perfect gift for this very reason. The fruit of the vine can be enjoyed by all members of the family, whether it’s a healthy snack for the kids or being turned into wine for the adults.
Getting the kids involved with the planting, tending and nurturing of the plant would be a great educational opportunity and one that they can have from the comfort of their own home. Many of our fruit trees are easy to maintain, and the kids can enjoy the rewards of their hard work when they tuck into their home-grown fruits.
The beautiful Rowan tree is another one of our popular gifts and makes a lovely new home gift. Known to the ancient Celtic peoples as the “Tree of Life,” branches from this tree were often hung over the entrance to homes, keeping negative enchantments at bay.
If the recipients live in an apartment or have limited outside space, our indoor plants make thoughtful gifts to brighten up their home. These low-maintenance cactus and succulent plants are trendy accessories for the modern home.
