There’s nothing like being home for the holidays. If you’re getting your space ready for some holiday festivities, you might be breaking out your holiday tree, hanging some sparkling lights, or buying your favorite candy canes.

If you need a little extra something to make your home sparkle, consider adding a few of our holiday houseplant picks. Not only will these plants make your space feel complete, but you’ll be giving yourself something to enjoy long after unwrapping presents.

1. A festive winter wreath

If you want to give your guests a warm welcome, there’s no better choice than a festive winter wreath for your front door—it will be the first thing they see! This lush, live wreath is handcrafted from Fraser fir, white pine, and juniper.

2. A live holiday tree

Have you ever longed for a Charlie Brown tree that can fit into a small space but is still full and lush? The Norfolk Island Pine is exactly that. Add small ornaments or twinkle lights for some extra shine.

3. A blooming houseplant

You don’t have to wait until spring to enjoy some blooms—the Phalaenopsis orchid is one of the easiest varieties of orchids to grow as a houseplant, and its beautiful flowers can last for several weeks.

4. A lively tropical plant

Our best-selling Monstera deliciosa with its broad green leaves is the perfect plant to bring your home to life, even during the dead of winter. To make it extra festive, add a cute holiday message pop.

5. A low-light tolerant plant

Just when you think you’re finished decorating, you notice an empty space in your room—and that’s when the ZZ Plant comes in handy. This low-light tolerant houseplant can be added to any dimly-lit space for a little extra greenery.
