The Christmas season is approaching and the search for gifts begins. A closed terrarium is only one example for a great gift for the cold winter months. Regardless of the temperature outside, it will be green and look beautiful. If you have a partner, friends or family members who are quite fond of plants, you could surprise them this year with a closed terrarium that will still look beautiful and bring joy years later. In addition to closed terrariums, you'll find several ideas for the holiday season in this list.

1. Seed Advent calendar as an early gift
Do you know someone who grows vegetables and herbs in the kitchen, on the balcony or in the garden? If so, the Seeds Advent Calendar by Ezoon is a great gift idea for the holiday season! It includes not only 24 different bags of seeds, but also a 12 feet long line and clothespins to hang the bags beautifully decorative on the wall.

2. A Christmas tree to grow yourself
Instead of the big Christmas tree from the forest or the market, this year you could also put your presents under a very small tree that you have grown yourself (or someone you have given it to). With the Living Christmas Tree Seed Grow Kit, it's easy to do. The Jonsteen Company supplies you with a reusable seed pot, a mini greenhouse and multiple seeds, so you have several attempts to grow a great Christmas tree. Your Christmas tree could still be a place where your family lays their gifts many years from now.
3. Complete set for a closed terrarium - the gift for hobbyists
The best Christmas gifts are those that bring people together. Complete sets for closed terrariums are great for that. They offer the opportunity to spend an afternoon crafting and then admire your living work of art for years to come.

3.2 Ecoworld Jungle/Tropical Biosphäre
Ecoworld offers other complete sets for a closed terrarium. These are the Ecoworld Jungle Biosphere and the Ecoworld Tropical Biosphere.

5. Decorative vase
A simple but versatile gift is a decorative vase for the wall. Especially nice for hanging plants or vines is the Umbra Trigg Hanging Planter Vase. This vase is a great gift for friends or family who are starting to run out of space for plants in their home. Why not switch to the walls? A hanging plant is more beautiful to look at than a lot of paintings. The Trigg Vase from Umbra is available in both a small and a large version and also as a table vase, if you prefer not to hang your plant on the wall. It is definitely worth a look!
You can buy the Umbra Trigg Hanging Planter Vase on Amazon.
