If you need to give a gift to someone, and all you can think of is another box of chocolates, or cookies, this could be your answer.

These are the perfect gifts for a hostess, teacher or someone that loves cooking (yes, even men will like this present). Everything tastes better with fresh ingredients, and fresh herbs can be used in so many ways.

But unlike other presents, there's not a box you just buy. You'll have to get creative with the wrapping.

Here I'll teach you three ways to wrap a potted plant to make this present extra special.
