These are one of the best Christmas gifts you can give to your friends and family. Alternative to flower delivery services just go on your own, visit your loved ones on this happy occasion and give them the best gift.

If you give proper care to this plant by watering it regularly, fertilize on time and expose to direct sunlight then the blooming will stay for almost 7-8 weeks or even more which means that you can also use the plant for your Valentine’s Day celebrations. Isn’t it great?


  1. Bromeliads

Bromeliads are the tropical indoor floral plants that are user-friendly and also low-maintenance and that is the reason these are the best alternative to poinsettia. Bromeliads do like direct and full sunlight but it doesn’t mean that you keep them in sunlight throughout the day.

Just make sure to place the plant near the window where they are exposed to indirect sunlight. If they are continuously exposed to direct sun then their beautiful and shiny leaves will lose their shine and glossiness.


  1. Orchids

Orchids have long and unique flows of long lasting flowers and that is why these flowers bring a sense of freshness to your living spaces during the festive season. Normally during Christmas we see red and green tones which in my opinion are quite boring.

So if you want to add a tint of pink or bright coral then Orchids are the best flowers for you.


  1. Paper-whites

Paper-whites have white and bright petals which easily grab the attention of the people. Due to the striking colors and beautiful appearance paper-whites become center of attention instantly. These flowers signify calmness and peace and that is another reason why you should consider these flowers this festive season.


  1. Kalanchoes

These are tropical and flowering plants and the good thing is their flowers last longer than any other plant. If you want to make them last a little longer then give them enough sunlight.

Their pink and purple petals are just enough to steal any show and that is why they offer the best alternative to Poinsettias.
