Why Don’t You Send A Loved One A Green Gift This Christmas

There are millions of people who are going to be away from family this Christmas, and while the Internet has certainly made the world a lot smaller, everyone will feel that absence – those at home, and those away from home. Traditionally, we send Christmas cards and gift. Even that is changing now as people turn to e-Cards and buy gifts online that are automatically sent to the loved one. Have you considered sending a green gift this Christmas?

Green gifts can come in a number of formats. We can send, on your behalf, a wonderful Christmas wreath. There are a number to choose from, however, if you really want to make someone’s Christmas special, order in a plain wreath and decorate it yourself. You can either personally deliver it, or you can send it to them through the parcel post service. Our Christmas wreaths are made using real foliage from Christmas trees, and a wide assortment of decorations.

Another green alternative is a real live Christmas tree. We can deliver either a fresh cut real Christmas tree, or a tree that is still growing in a pot. If you are close enough to deliver the tree yourself, consider a small pot grown tree that you can hand deliver, already decorated. Better yet, deliver the tree and Christmas decorations and spend some time decorating the tree together.

Christmas wreaths and Christmas trees are relatively inexpensive, yet they make a great gift. One of the benefits of a pot grown Christmas tree is that it will live on after Christmas, and if kept in a pot, can be re-used for several more years. A green gift could be the novel gift that makes this Christmas special for a loved one, especially if you’re a long way from home.

Christmas Project: A Decorative Table Top Christmas Tree

Whilst the traditional Christmas tree is one that sits in a corner and almost reaches the ceiling, it doesn’t have to be. You can put together a smaller decorative tabletop Christmas tree that really looks traditional, yet very different. What’s even better, you can use a real Christmas tree and not a plastic imitation tree.

Pot grown Christmas trees are perfect for this project, and for a table top, you will need to select one of the smaller trees. The Norway Spruce pot grown tree in the 70cm-90cm (2ft4ins-2ft11ins) is ideal and ready right now for delivery. At £29.00 it is well priced as well but stocks are limited so order one in now for immediate delivery. You will also need a brightly coloured bucket to stand the pot in (pots are 25-30cm high); and a range of decorations suitable for a Christmas tree.

Because this is going to be a table top tree, it is best to use smaller decorations rather than large bulky decorations. When it comes to lighting your Christmas tree, you may want to consider the red, blue or clear LED fine wire battery lights. These run from AA batteries rather than mains power, so there are no power cable problems running across the table and/or floor – it also makes the tree very portable should you need to move it. Each string has 20 lights and will cover 95cms – a couple of strings will do nicely in a small decorative table top Christmas tree – perhaps a string each of red and blue. A point to note – wire lights are just that – wires with lights every 5cm. These wires can be bent to any desired shape, perfect for a small tree.

Once you have all of your materials, string the lights first concentrating on the inside rather than the outside.  Once your tree is lit, add your  decorations working from the inside out, and from the bottom up. Try to keep a balanced look, however, be imaginative, after all, there really isn’t a right or wrong way to decorate Christmas trees – just your way. Being a live Christmas tree, don’t forget to water it regularly and to keep it away from any direct heat sources. Otherwise, this tree will look superb on any table.

Brighten Your Study With An Award-Winning Potted Christmas Tree

award winning potted Christmas TreePotted Christmas trees are ideal for smaller spaces like studies, home offices or your office in the workplace. They can also make a wonderful display in the entrance way to homes or on a business’s reception desk.

Our award-winning Norway Spruce in one potted Christmas tree that is well worth considering. They are available in sizes ranging from 70cm (2ft4ins) to 175cm (5ft9ins). The smaller 70cm potted trees are ideal for those small spaces like desktops. Being so much smaller, weight is not an issue.

Potted Christmas trees look good no matter how many decorations you add. You can be heavy handed and almost cover the tree in tinsel, lights and baubles, or you can take the light handed approach with a few baubles, gift cards and tinsel – they still look superb.

The study or home office is one area where a nicely decorated potted Christmas tree looks at home. The rest of the house is decorated for Christmas so why not your space? They are excellent for reducing stress and, believe it not, Christmas is a time when the stress level of many people goes up – there are obviously not enough pot-grown Christmas trees around to reduce those stress levels.

Whether it is the home or the office (or both), potted Christmas trees are ideal ways of helping to spread the Christmas cheer. If you haven’t had one before – try one this festive season. You won’t be disappointed.
