Truth be told this was a present for myself, but boy does it make me happy. We just added a magnolia tree to the front yard of our house and it makes coming home even better each day. Take someone special to your local nursery to have the pick out a special flowering plant or tree for their home for a gift that will provide natural beauty year after year.

Magnolia Tree, approx $150.

Psst…my favourite Toronto spa, Pure + Simple, recently sent me a tree complete with some facts on why these growing gifts are so great: a tree produces 260 pounds of oxygen each year, 1 tree absorbs 10 pounds of pollutants from the air each year, and shade from a tree can cool buildings up to 20 degrees in the summer. They sure make a gift that keeps giving.

Indigo has Grow-Your-Own magnolia tree kits in stores right now for just $25! You have start from scratch, planting the seed in a bucket of soil and watering until it’s big enought to go in the ground, so it will take a while before it grows to it’s full glory, but a great deal and fun project to nurture nonetheless.
