With Christmas fast approaching you may be tempted to buy this small book, glean some ideas, then gift-wrap it for the appropriate day. While focusing on floral arrangement this book stresses the importance of finding the right vessel, advising readers to "fling open their cupboard doors to find an Aladdin’s cave of innovative containers."

There are suggestions for special occasions (including Christmas), gifts for girls and guys, themed gifts and so on.

Lots of small tips, too, on things like container basics and colour harmony.
