Gifts for Plant Lovers
With the holiday season just around the corner, now is the time to start preparing gift ideas for family and friends. Unique passions, interests, and hobbies are great niches in which to find gifting inspiration, but even still, shopping for gifts for plant lovers might pose a challenge. That’s because the most obvious plant gifts for your green-thumbed loved ones can be hard to find this time of year, when colder weather and decreasing sunlight limit the availability of flourishing, one-of-a-kind indoor plants. Fret not, there is a solution. Gardening and indoor plant accessories – including decorative vases, indoor watering cans, and modern plant pots, to name a few – can make some of the best gifts for plant lovers. At Design Within Reach, shop plant gift ideas that the plant lover in your life will appreciate every day.
Plant Gift Ideas
Function is the first thing to consider when shopping for useful gifts for plant lovers. The most devoted plant parents on your list will appreciate any unique plant gifts that add to their plants’ health and prosperity. Think about pairing spacious modern planters with high-quality soil and an indoor watering can or hanging planters with a plant mister. Match indoor greenhouses with state-of-the-art gardening tools and a plant humidifier or present a propagation station composed of unique vases and specially designed floral shears. Each of these plant gift ideas will offer the plant lovers in your life the opportunity to hone their craft and encourage their favorite house plants to prosper.

The second consideration to make when thinking of great gifts for plant lovers is design: Not only should your plant gifts function properly, but they should also look good doing it. As much as they are members of the family, plants are also beautiful home accents, and thus so should be their accessories. Instead of basic nursery pots or hefty plastic indoor watering cans, consider modern plant pots with streamlined silhouettes and metal and glass watering cans. Look for decorative vases that will complement your loved one’s favorite flowers or show off a plant clipping’s budding roots, all while acting as gorgeous home decor.
