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 of many healthy benefits including improving air quality and ridding harmful toxins from the air. Plants also bring a burst of colour to any living space and can transform a house into a home.
Which is one of the reasons plants are traditionally giving as housewarming presents - they figuratively warm the home. For that reason, and the fact that plants are great sustainable gifts, we think a potted tree or plant would make an excellent housewarming gift, and we have a selection of unusual trees for you to choose from.
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. A truly unique housewarming gift can incorporate the fact that so much time is spent in the kitchen while also having a practical use for the family.
One of our grape vine plants would be a perfect housewarming gift for this very reason. The fruit of the vine can be enjoyed by all members of the family - either as a healthy snack for the kids or after being turned into wine for the adults. Furthermore, getting the children 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.
Another of our popular trees, the beautiful Rowan tree would make a lovely housewarming present as well. Known to the ancient Celtic peoples as being a “Tree of Life,” branches from this beautiful tree were often hung over the entrance to homes, keeping negative enchantments at bay.
