I often give plants that I have started from cuttings as gifts. To brighten these up I use a water pic from the florist with one or 2 blossoms from my yard to add a bit of color. I stick the pic into the soil, and make a bow that matches in color or compliments the flowers or the pot and voila! This would be at least $20 at a flower shop!
I save the kids mylar balloons when they no longer stay up. Store them flat and when you want to give a cutting away, slit the balloon open and use one side of it to wrap up around the sides of the container your plant is in with the colorful side showing, or the silver side which ever you prefer. Tie with a ribbon. When it is scrunched up around the pot, you can't tell if it's a birthday balloon or whatever. All you see is the color.
