A different kind of Christmas tree
Williams-Sonoma is known for its fine cookware and kitchen accessories, but around this time of year the catalog also offers lots of Christmas greens for sale, including Christmas trees.
This year, the company is offering a different kind of Christmas tree: seedlings of Japanese black pine, Southern magnolia and Colorado blue spruce.
These young, farm-grown seedlings sell for $49.95 each, plus shipping, and are between a foot and two feet tall.
The catalog says the baby trees can be treated like houseplants this winter and transplanted outdoors in the spring.
The trees come in a jute bag with a red ribbon.
An earth-friendly Christmas present if ever there was one.
