(NAPSI)—Picking just the right presents for your friends while looking like a blooming genius at gift giving time can be easier than many people realize.

A company that’s been trusted for more than 40 years to deliver smiles has new, truly original gifts available this holiday season, as well as tried-and-true treasures, all designed to surprise and delight.

Consider these beauties:

Santa’s Surprise

A great gift doesn’t have to take up a great deal of room. Consider The Night Before Christmas Holiday Flower Tree®, for instance: Even if they already have a full-size Tannenbaum to gather ‘round, your friends might get a big kick out of this small(er) tree, potted in a charming planter that looks like a certain jolly ol’ elf’s midsection. It makes a terrific table-topper for the holiday-and it can be planted outdoors once Rudolph and the rest head back north.

Sweet And Sassy Succulents

If unconventional festivity is more their style, a quartet of minisucculents in magnetic pots might be just the decor they’re looking for. A variety of succulents-already adorable-is potted with fresh moss in magnet-backed, metallic “ornaments” in red, silver, bronze or gold. Give all four to one friend or give one to each of four different friends.

There’s also a trio of succulents in charming ceramic containers with inspirational messages such as “dig it” and “I will survive.” (The only thing trendier than succulents is succulents in punny planters.)

Fabulous Food

As many have discovered, 1-800-Flowers.com isn’t just flowers. With such sister brands as Harry & David, Cheryl’s Cookies and The Popcorn Factory, there’s nearly no end to the tasteful, tasty gifts to be found and sent. For example, Simply Chocolate Holiday Cheer Confections Tin has gourmet goodies to sweeten anyone’s season including a (reusable) silver gift tin of milk chocolate caramel pecan clusters, dark chocolate almond bark, chocolate pretzels, and dark chocolate nonpareils, as well as a giant chocolate peanut butter cup. After all, holidays should be delicious.

Traditional Tulips

Finally, for the friends who like to keep it classic, there’s a bouquet of tulips-not just happy, and not merely merry, but absolutely jolly in bold red and brilliant white. A full 15 fresh blooms gathered from floral farms make for a memorable yuletide delivery, especially if you send the flowers with a whimsical Santa vase or a plush red-nosed reindeer-in a scarf.
