Fill the distance with spruce trees

A meaningful gift in winter

This winter, invite a few of your nearest and dearest over for a gathering round the bonfire, and gift them tiny spruce trees. Its symbolism makes the spruce extremely appropriate at this time of year, and there's no better way to keep the winter blues away than with greenery!

Which spruce will you choose?

Spruce is a hardy coniferous evergreen, often with quintessential pinecones under the branches. The spruce often grows in a classic shape with layered branches that form a wreath around the trunk, but the tree also exists as a sphere, or a pyramid, or with branches that hang down.

There are plenty of varieties to choose from, and we haven't even touched on the height differences. Miniature spruces are perfect for decorating the patio around a firepit, creating a seasonal atmosphere outdoors during winter. In this way, charity and togetherness is extended into the garden, balcony or terrace, and if you give it as a gift to your friends, it will be a part of their lives, too.


The spruce is not just a symbol of Christmas. In Greek mythology, the tree belongs to Artemis, goddess of the moon. This association with light makes the tree a perfect choice for the dark days before Christmas.
