A Gift Guide for Plant-Lovers

The holidays are coming friends! What better time than now to round up a list of my favorite gifts for plant lovers as we near the end of 2020. These gift ideas are perfect for anyone in your life that loves and appreciates the beauty of plants. Keep reading below for my list and leave a comment if you have more ideas not listed!

PLANT POTS

If you’re a plant lover, you can always use a new plant pot! And with so many amazing small businesses out there creating unique designs, how could you go wrong? Some of my favorite styles right now are terrazzo, terracotta (the original reddish clay color + natural colors like sage green and ivory), hand-painted, and geometric shapes. Take a look at these awesome shops that have countless options for the plant lover in your life:

PROPAGATION STATIONS

Another great addition to any plant lover’s home is a propagation station, as it will help them grow more plants from plants they already own! Plant propagation is simple. For most plants, you simply cut beneath a node and stick the stem in water. Within 1-2 weeks, you will have roots – I suggest planting in soil once you have 1-2″ roots or longer. Remind them to replace the water once a week as it can get dirty over time.

LEATHER PLANT SLING

While we’ve all seen our fair share of macramé plant hangers, leather slings are making their appearance this year all over social media. This is a great way to hang plants while adding the natural texture of leather to your home décor. Here are some of my favorite handmade shops:

HOUSEPLANT COFFEE TABLE BOOKS

Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book? This is such a fun way to decorate with your personal interests – whether you love architecture, fashion, cooking, or PLANTS! I love to stack these on a coffee table or tv media stand, but what I really love doing is leaving the book open on a page that inspires me that day, week, or even season! Below are some of my favorites but know there are countless options, and this is a great place to buy second-hand as well!

Terrain: Ideas and Inspiration for Decorating the Home and Garden (this one is currently on my coffee table – they cover all the seasons so you can flip through as you change the décor in your home!)

PLANT STANDS

Plant people will never have enough plant stands for their planters. These can be found in all shapes and sizes, colors, and materials. If you plan to buy the plant pot separately, I suggest having your stand made custom.

My favorite custom design company is Southern Sunshine. I had the ceramic planter pictured above but could never find the right stand for it. So when I reached out to Southern Sunshine’s shop they were happy to help!

PLANT LADY HAT

Who doesn’t need a baseball cap to throw on when you’re having a bad hair day? These also make for great home décor  by easily hanging on the wall, laying over a basket or mirror, you name it! A quick search on Etsy and you will be flooded with great options covering all colors, fonts and styles.

STICKY BUG TRAPS

While these might not be the most glamorous of our plant-lover gifts, trust me when I tell you that they come in handy! If you have an indoor jungle on your hands, then you know that these are a must for those pesky bugs flying around your head! I usually grab mine off amazon but you can find them locally as well!

I hope you enjoyed this round-up of Plant-lover gifts for the upcoming holidays – keep in mind these will be welcomed by your plant-loving friends year-round!
