As evidenced by the onslaught of red, green, and gold already lining the shelves of every Walmart and CVS in the nation, the holiday season is here. And that means it’s time for you to lean all the way in and turn your home into a festive oasis of twinkle lights and cheer. Or, you know, risk being labeled The Worst.

Something that usually slips the mind of every person shopping for decorations right about now? Greenery. Specifically festive holiday plants. I get it, you have the tree already so why invest in other live things? Well, because it’s fun. And don’t you want to smile? Thought so.

If the quarantine life of the past two years turned you into a plant person (hi, me!), you’re probably well aware of The Sill. The cult-favorite, woman-owned, and all-around iconic online plant store is kind of the pièce de résistance when it comes to trendy plants. And the company just dropped its brand-new, curated holiday collection for all of us humble plant parents to shop. Bless you, The Sill.

So, if you’re ready to truly take your seasonal decoration to the next level (and why wouldn’t you?), take a look at all of their new offerings below. Meanwhile, I’ll be adding all of these to my cart while sipping peppermint hot chocolate.

1. Norfolk Island Pine, $57

Don’t want to buy a full-sized tree this year? This tropical evergreen will look so cute perched in any room of your abode. Just make sure to keep it in bright, indirect light and water it every one to two weeks.

2. Holiday Cactus, $40

This charming, prickly fella is also called the Thanksgiving Cactus, Christmas Cactus, or Easter Cactus depending on the leaf shape. It’s also pet-safe!

3. Lemon Cypress, $62

While this cypress needs bright light and frequent watering, it can really chill both indoors and outdoors (if the temperature is 55 degrees or above). Buy it for the obvious seasonal flair and then be pleasantly surprised by the light citrus scent.

4. The Wisping Willow Wreath, $79

Okay, so it’s not technically a plant. But everyone needs a wreath! And this one, made of willow, eucalyptus, and podocarpus, would look stunning on every door. Pro tip: Mist the wreath daily to keep it fresh during the season before letting it slowly dry out.

5. String of Pearls, $42

Can you imagine this beauty cascading down your bookshelf while “Mistletoe” plays in the background? I can. This succulent is the ultimate subtle season’s greeting, IMO.

Now that all that’s settled, can I interest anyone in some ornaments? Bonus points if you take the Norfolk Pine and turn it into your very own Charlie Brown tree.
