Who wouldn’t want to receive one of these beautifully detailed tiny terrarium pins in the office Secret Santa? Air plants, succulents, pebbles and potting soil contained in a diamond-shaped terrarium are all intricately rendered in enamel and silver. One word: adorable!

More than just a fashion statement, lapel pins are a form of self-expression. Whatever the passion or penchant of your recipient, there’s a pin out there to suit them.

That’s why we can’t get enough of these totally covetable plant pins – the ultimate stocking filler for fashion savvy foliage fans. And don’t be fooled by the name ‘lapel pin’ – they look as good on dresses, coats, hats and bags as they do on jackets and blazers.
