Our hearts break a little each time we have to throw out those thoughtful holiday cards from family and friends. Still, when spring-cleaning rolls around, they’re often some of the first things to go. Luckily, thanks to a new line of greeting cards from Niko Niko, you can avoid the garbage and take your cards to the garden instead!

According to the website, all the recipient has to do is pamper the plantable card “with soil, water and a lot of love,” then watch it transform into colorful wildflowers. The company is based in the Netherlands, so order now if you want them in time for the holidays. Niko Niko also offers cards for other occasions. Most cost around $5.

It’s literally the gift that keeps on giving — or should we say, growing.
