Buying presents can be stressful, but thankfully, shopping for the plant lover in your life doesn’t have to be with this helpful guide to guarantee you find the perfect gift. Remember, plants are always a great option as well!
Gardening gloves are often overlooked as the plant enthusiast is putting together their kit for the upcoming growing season. Find a pair of sturdy, flexible, high-quality gardening gloves with a fun pattern and stick a hand balm in the bag to help soothe their cracked skin following a day in the dirt. If you want to make the gift a little bigger, you could even include a gift certificate for a manicure in a local salon. Everyone wants to be pampered now and then!
Harvesting your veggies and fruits at the end of the year is one of the most rewarding parts of gardening. Finally, you get to see all of your hard work pay off. A specialized harvest basket can help make the process even more fun and minimize trips to and from the house to drop off the haul. Search for a lightweight wooden or wire basket that will allow dirt and debris to fall out of the bottom. Make sure that the holes aren’t so big that small produce like cherry tomatoes and herbs will fall out.
If your friend or loved one likes to spend a lot of time in their yard, they are likely a fan of birds as well. Search out a unique birdhouse that will match their other yard decor and allow their personality to shine. Along with this gift, you could include a birdwatching book and a pair of binoculars to complete the birding experience.
Everyone loves container gardening, but new pots, especially attractive ones, usually come at a cost. If the plant lover in your life has a large balcony, patio, or porch that would be perfect for a large planter or decorative pot, take a trip to your nearest home and garden store and pick out the perfect one. Include soil and seeds (or a young plant) so that they don’t have to buy any supplies to get their new container set up.
Carting around hand tools and keeping all of your seed packets and bulbs organized can often prove difficult. Get your friend a handy tool tote that they can use to travel from one area in the garden to the next without leaving a trail of trash and supplies behind.
If they are more of an indoor plant lover, purchase a live succulent garden or glass terrarium to amp up their succulent collection. If you’re feeling creative, you can make your own succulent arrangement, or take on an easy living frame project for the ultimate statement piece.
Everyone loves fresh cut flowers, especially the person who can simply go out to their backyard and cut a beautiful arrangement. Purchase a beautiful centerpiece vase and accompany it with a lovely bouquet and some flower scissors for future flower-cutting needs.
The houseplant obsession can quickly spiral out of control. If their plants outnumber the empty surfaces in their home and they’ve run out of windowsill space, an attractive plant stand could be the perfect gift.
Themed wall art
Look around for attractive canvas paintings or framed prints of their favorite plants, vegetables, or flowers. Try to find something that matches their decor style and will look great in their home.
Watering can or mister
Another perfect gift for houseplant enthusiasts is a watering can or a cute mister to add humidity to tropical plants. Watering houseplants can take a long time, but they may not dread the task as much when they can use a classy watering can.
Pretty much everyone loves herbs, and a preassembled herb kit is a no-fail gift that they’re sure to appreciate. Whether you go for a pricer hydroponic growing system option with a grow light, or stick to something more simple like a few pots with soil and starter plants, it is bound to be a hit.
