Have you heard that the “plant lady” is the new “cat lady”? Even if that isn’t you, you almost certainly know someone who fits that description.
Whether it’s your friend who calls herself a “plant mom” or your male coworker with an eye for interior design, they mean a lot to you — and the holidays are the perfect time to show it.
Here are 11 gifts the plant lover in your life is sure to appreciate.
1. Phalaenopsis Orchids
Getting a flower for someone with a bright personality? Look no further than anthuriums. Anthuriums come in red, pink and orange varieties and feature heart-shaped blooms and leaves. With the impressive distinction of being the world’s longest-blooming plant, they will rebloom year after year with proper care.
Bromeliad plants produce colorful, long-lasting leaf crowns, bringing a tropical flair to any space. They come in a variety of colors—including red, orange and yellow— and will thrive at room temperatures. Bromeliad care is easy. These plants just require regular watering and occasional fertilizing and pruning.
4. Money Tree Plant
Who says money doesn’t grow on trees? Money tree plants don’t exactly produce cash, but they’re rumored to bring good fortune and wealth to their owners. Money tree plant care is easy, which makes this a great gift for any plant lover in your life!
Succulent plants are small, hardy plants that thrive even in the desert, so they’re perfect for first-time plant owners. They’ll fit even the smallest spaces, making them well-suited for apartment dwellers. Many succulents are also animal safe, which makes them great for pet lovers, too!
Foliage plants make a good ground-level plant or hanging plant in a home. They come in many fun varieties—such as the curly spider plant, fluffy ruffles fern, snake plant, umbrella tree and zebrina—making them a unique collector’s item and a conversation piece. The plant person in your life will enjoy mixing and matching them.
7. DIY Pots & Planters
You don’t have to go out and buy expensive pots and bases for the plant lady or guy in your life. For a unique gift, try decorating coffee mugs to transform them into thoughtful, DIY flower pots.
8. Creative Plant Shelves
Plant lovers enjoy displaying their plants and flowers in creative ways. Using small wooden stools, plastic shelving units, or even using rope for hangers can drastically change the look of their home.
9. A Plant Pillow
Maybe your favorite plant lady or guy already has plenty of potted plants in their home. You want to acknowledge their love of plants without adding to the collection. Consider giving them a pillow with a plant design. It’s a great accent piece—and doesn’t require any watering!
10. A Plant Mug
This is perfect for that early riser who can’t start their day until they’ve had a cup of coffee. With many different designs to choose from, you’ll surely find the perfect mug gift for the coffee and plant lover in your life.
