It’s December, the weather outside is frightful but our trees or so delightful (Ho-Ho-Ho). In all seriousness though, we are all really excited about Christmas and Christmas trees here at Tree2mydoor. However when we say Christmas trees, we aren’t talking about those trees that get dragged into the home for 2 weeks a year, oh no; we are talking about the wonderfully Christmassy Holly Tree.
Holly trees have always been synonymous with Christmas; from Christmas tales to festive song, the little red berry is ever present. The mere sight of luscious and vibrant red berries mixed with the dark green leaves exude a classic Christmas style, easily on par with a sherry and a few carols. Holly leaves have also been the traditional symbol of festive welcome; adorned to the front door, a wreath welcomes your friends and family into your house every Christmas.
We’ve been working hard at Tree2mydoor this month to bring you a brand new selection of holly trees as Christmas gifts. So whether you are buying a little gift for yourself or wanting to spread the Christmas spirit with a lovely holly tree gift, we are sure to have something to suit.
Our personal favourites are the new Christmas wreaths. We have a really nice Christmas holly wreath in at the moment; lovely for the front door. Or as a bit of an alternative to the more traditional option, we have a holly and ivy mixed wreath.
In addition to these wreaths, we have a charming new holly tree called the ‘Golden King Holly’. This holly tree features a handsome golden tinge around the end of its dark lush leaves. Its flowers will blossom in late spring with the bright red berries appearing just in time for Christmas. It’s got a lovely name, so you can send one of the three kings with this golden king holly tree.
Our native holly and our plaited holly trees really have been going quick this year...perhaps everyone has been bitten by the holly bug? Either way, wishing all of you a very merry Christmas from all of us here at the Tree2mydoor team.
