Christmas for all the senses

We all like to have something beautiful to look at, as well as festive treats to eat and drink. Plants are an excellent solution: as well as being highly attractive, they bring a wealth of positive benefits. This year, try filling your home with more than Christmas cards and candles: add plenty of plants as well. From a twinkling Christmas tree decorated with houseplants and a festive plant display to a leaf backdrop for your Christmas stocking, trust us when we say that plants make Christmas even more magical.

Giving is nicer than receiving

Everyone loves getting gifts, but we all know it's more rewarding to give than receive. Make that gift even more special with our brilliant DIY craft project: presents wrapped with a botanical ornament. Of course, the best thing to give to your other half is a kiss — and where better to do that than under the mistletoe.
