How to Pick the Perfect Houseplant Gifts
If you’re wondering how to buy the perfect houseplant gifts for your friend or partner, there are a number of elements you should consider. Making sure you are buying the right gift for the right type of person is paramount to giving them the special day they deserve!
Are They Good at Plant Care?
If you’re thinking about a houseplant as a gift, the first thing you should probably think about is what level of gardener, or grower, they are. Different plants require different levels of care and attention.
If you have a plant-care beginner, then you should definitely consider something smaller (and less expensive if it dies) or one of our easy-care plant range.
Aside from the plants stated above, why not consider a Chinese Money Plant or Areca Palm? If you’re worried that your receiver may be a little prone to the odd plant-care gaff, then you should definitely tell them about the plant care guides on our blog!
How Old Are They?
One of the next things you should consider when buying houseplant gifts is how old your receiver is.
If you are wanting to buy a present for a younger person, like a child, you may want a present that is going to be more interactive – something they feel they can take part in!
For those a little older, why not consider something that would fit in seamlessly with a busy working, or university, timetable?
What Type of Personality do They Have?
We’re firm believers that houseplant gifts should mimic the personality of the person you’re buying for! Before you buy any houseplant gifts, have a think about the type of person you’re buying for. This will help you decide what the best gift is.
For those who are sleek and stylish, you should definitely consider a more refined houseplant. Something like a Cast Iron Plant would be perfect!
Equally, for someone who is a little more on the quirky side, why not consider getting something more colourful, like a Prayer Plant or Anthurium?
