When it comes to gift giving, it doesn't always take a lot to make a big impression. In my book, as long as you're sincere and carefully consider everyone's wants and needs, you're setting yourself up for success. No matter if you're shopping for extroverts or the family member who loves to travel, it really is the thought that counts. But if you find yourself a little pressed for ideas, why not spark some joy into someone's life with a bit of horticulture?

Studies have shown that any type of plant care and immersing yourself in nature's greenery can actually boost your mood and help decrease your body's stress levels. That being said, we stumbled upon the most adorable holiday-themed terracotta grow kit to liven up your home decor and provide a festive spirit well past the holiday season.

TIP

Thankfully you don't have to be a green thumb to enjoy seeding this plant. The kit comes with everything you need to start growing your green baby, including one coco pith disk for potting, one coconut filter for water drainage, non-GMO seeds, plant food, and terracotta to allow for more efficient moisture flow. The plant itself is a cosmos, a type of annual and perennial flower that has a bold daisy-like appearance in full bloom. All you have to do is add water, plus a little TLC, and you're good to go.

But if you really got an itch to unleash your inner gardener, you also have the option to grow a nordic spruce, a fast-growing tree. By the way, each kit measures 3.5 inches long and 3.5 inches wide, so it can sit perfectly in your outdoor garden or on your windowsill.

And while it may seem like the time of sowing new seeds has passed, this is not necessarily the case, according to chief gardener at garden company Ferry-Morse Rebecca Sears.

"While many think the gardening season is over come fall, there is more work to be done that can increase your harvest and better prepare your garden for next year," Sears previously told Well+Good. "To ensure successful blooms next season, it’s wise to plant perennial flowers now so they can establish their roots before frost."

So, no matter if you want to step into the life of a green thumb or boost your energy, this grow kit may be the perfect way add some greenery to your home.
