Holiday Shopping: Gift This, Not That

5. For the Green-Thumbed Hostess
Bringing flowers to a cocktail party ensures a gift that keeps on giving—but not in the good way. Watch as the hostess drops everything to find a vase and squeezes the arrangement onto an already-set table. Up your greenery game with a cheery houseplant, like these peppy-potted ones from The Sill, and behold: a gift that really does keep on giving, from the months-long infusion of green to the brightly-glazed stoneware pots begging to be repurposed.
