Surprised you didn't include some that I see for sale everywhere around this time of year.

I was never a fan of Christmas cactus until my husband received one as a gift when he was in the hospital -- it was huge and covered with red blooms. The flowers are really lovely and like any succulent it thrives on neglect (mine actually blooms when I water it after a time keeping it dry).

Another favorite of mine is cyclamen. Mine seem to thrive in my kitchen window over the sink, probably because I'm most likely to remember to water them there. I'm told they like a cold sunny window, which is what they have there. They have lovely heart-shaped leaves and flowers that look like they are upside-down. They do go through dormant periods when you think they are dying but be patient because they come back after awhile.

And of course poinsettias. I've seen some that are dyed blue or purple or covered with glitter, and I just can't get my mind around those, but the natural colored ones are always pretty at holiday time.

Also, a note on the mini conifers (#1) -- I've never gotten one of those to stay alive. They are usually already drying out by the time I get them home.

Etsy has cute Pokemon planters, suitable for a small succulent! Very nice gift for college students that like Pokemon.
