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 starting to buy your favorite candy canes.

If you need a little extra something to make your home sparkle, consider adding some our 6 holiday houseplant picks. Not only will these plants make your space feel complete, you’ll be giving yourself something to enjoy long after unwrapping presents.
