Most people associate plants with spring and summer, but did you know that there are countless flowers and plants that only bloom in the winters? Not only this, but if you take them and run with the whole Christmas Tree theme, they can make some pretty good presents on the holidays.
These flowers and plants would be perfect for that friend who just moved to a new apartment and is just starting to decorate it, or that family member with a green thumb who loved surrounding themselves with plants. It can even be something that makes your sad friend get out of bed every morning – taking care of their new plant can give them something easy to do and some routine.

With a lot of people living in small apartments, you might know some who didn’t have room for a Christmas tree. Well, that’s no reason for them to be left out of the christmas cheer, which is why you need to get them a rosemary Christmas tree as soon as possible.
These little tree shaped plants come in small jars and can be displayed in front of windows, on shelves, and even on the dining table. You can decorate them much like you would decorate a usual Christmas tree, and it can be a very meaningful gesture for anyone who celebrates Christmas but almost missed out on one of the most fun parts of it.
Does it come as a surprise that there’s a plant practically named after Christmas and it’s not a common Christmas present? Yes, yes it does. It’s even funnier when you realize that the Christmas Cactus is not a succulent or a cactus, but just a very beautiful winter flowering plant. It will bloom bright pink flowers around December too – even though we make no promises that it would be in time for Christmas!
The best you can do is to take care of the plant and hope that’s enough, but this is definitely a present worth looking into. It’ll look good in your loved one’s home even after the holiday season is over.
This winter plant will fit right in with the green and red theme that’s common in almost all Christmas decorations, and will look damn good doing it. It has beautifully shaped leaves, blooms in the winter, and will definitely look great on your side tables or on the coffee table.
It isn’t, however, the type of plant you’d want as a centerpiece on your dining table or on top of the fireplace.
This is another plant that can either double as a Christmas tree or fit right in with the Christmas cheer, which makes it pretty popular among circles that appreciate plants that bloom in the winter.
What’s even better is that you don’t need to do much to take care of them – just mist them weekly or make sure to keep them in a humid room, and they’ll last you all year long.
