Valentine’s Day is coming, and you need gift ideas for plant lovers. This year, don’t spend hours scouring the aisles of stores for something less obvious. Instead, give your loved one a gift that keeps on giving and one you’ll know they love: a plant. Luckily, there’s still time!
Whether you’re seeing someone new or planning a romantic evening with a longtime love, you can make the day memorable and meaningful with these original Valentine's Day gift ideas for plant lovers.
Visit a local attraction like a botanical garden, arboretum or even a museum in the area—and then get dinner at a restaurant in your city. If you’re in Cleveland, Ohio, the Cleveland Botanical Garden is open late on Wednesdays, making the Orchids After Dark program a perfect V-Day destination.
Try a DIY Project Together
Check out a local garden center for a class on how to make a terrarium or fairy garden. A great Northeast Ohio option is Party’n With Plants (they also have a location in Turner, Maine), while Plant Nite lets you search events across the U.S. and Canada to find something in your area! If you can’t find a local class, visit your local craft store to pick up the supplies and create a terrarium in the comfort of your home.

Bring Home Anthuriums
Great gift ideas for plant lovers can last for seasons. Give your love a beautiful floral arrangement from Just Add Ice®. Think outside the box and pick up a beautiful crimson red anthurium, with heart-shaped leaves and flowers that perfectly capture love and affection. Anthuriums are the world’s longest-blooming plant; each flower spike can last up to eight weeks with proper care. What better way to show your lasting love than with a long-lasting gift?
No matter how your loved one decorates their home, you can be sure a plant will match. Adding a touch of greenery to a room has the double effect of making the room feel cozier and more complete. Aside from the obvious benefits of improved air quality plants can provide, they are also known for having a calming and stress-relieving effect. Also, by giving your loved one a plant this Valentine’s Day, you’re giving them a beautiful reminder that nurturing something as it grows is a fulfilling experience.
Make a Plant-Based Meal
Cook your love a tasty plant-based meal like this three course dinner from Oh She Glows. You can even incorporate edible flowers as an accent in your salad or entree. Prefer a breakfast-in-bed approach? Try these strawberry shortcake pancakes.
A massage is a romantic way to pamper your loved one, and aromatherapy oils can make it even more relaxing. Try some lavender or geranium essential oils for an uplifting floral experience that will reduce stress and revitalize the mind.
Your Valentine's Day celebration doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive to be meaningful. Simply making a project together, enjoying a meal, or reminding your sweetheart of your enduring love with a long-lasting gift can go a long way. We hope you’ll find inspiration in one of these ideas to make your Valentine’s Day better with gift ideas for plant lovers!
