These pieces of wearable greenery are perfect for the nature lover on your list.

I love the idea of wearing a snippet of greenery to keep it close to the body, it feels like some kind of terrarium talisman. And even though not all of the ones here include living plants (though some do), they all celebrate the verdancy of green things. Little gifts, big magic!
