The holidays can sometimes be a challenging time to find the perfect gift for the plant lover in your life, so give them the gift that keeps giving this season, and send a unique potted herb kit. While this time of year conjures images of poinsettias that fade and collect dust long before the holiday festivities are done, a customized herb kit is a meaningful gift that will provide fresh herbs and provide naturally lush décor for many months afterward. These one-of-a-kind kits are available in a variety of aromatic and culinary herbs and come with a stylish planter, soil and detailed instructions. Easy to care for and even easier to enjoy, these long-living herbs will give you a continuous supply of fresh flavors for cooking and lift your spirits until spring arrives.

Why Potted Herbs? 

Fresh herbs enhance our favorite holiday dishes and their aromas fill our homes with warmth, but they can become scarce to find as the weather grows colder. Sometimes found at large grocery chains, buying small bundles of herbs in the off season can really add up, especially during a season where pennies are already being pinched tightly. Growing your own potted herbs affords you the luxury of fresh plants whenever you need, with no added cost.
