Looking for a gift? One that says, I know Christmas is still 3 months away but just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you? One that also says, you couldn’t keep a plant alive even if you lived in a South East Asian rain forest, so I got you this? Look no further than the DIY succulents kit (2200 yen) from Sol x Sol.  You’ll receive 6 different kinds of succulents that you are free to arrange as you please. Or, you can follow their photo-assisted step-by-step tutorial. And once you are done the plants are super maintenance-free.

And if you find these plants as aesthetically pleasing as I do there is some free wallpaper you can download here (although I must say, the whole desktop wallpaper thing is kind of kaput, no?)
