Housewarming gift

The Classy Way to Give a Plant as a Housewarming Gift


Plants may top the list of cheesy, clichéd housewarming gifts, but that's exactly what I gave my friend this past weekend to celebrate her new apartment.

To make it more personal than just picking up something from the garden centre, I replanted some mint  from my own garden in a terracotta pot. Then I wrapped the pot in cellophane, tied a bow with twill tape and added a label. The simplicity of the packaging and the thoughtfulness of sharing something from one's own garden is what makes the gift charming.
