Silvery sprig gift toppers

Sure, it’s what’s inside that counts, but fresh gift toppers make the presentation unforgettable too. Just tuck bouquets of houseplant leaves (like peperomia and pilea), juniper, and silver tree leaves under ribbon, or glue fern curls and lichens right onto packages. 

Tip: Use floral glue to adhere without ribbon; it dries clear.
